Denver-based producer Lane 8 has unveiled his seasonal mixtape – this time showcasing the best of this year with a special 2017 winter mix. Having first started the mix series a few years back, the American’s mixes have become highly anticipated, with fans clamouring for the latest instalment ahead of the Christmas period.
Taking things to a richly melodic tone, Lane 8 laces his mix with a series of pumping grooves and deep chords that music lovers have come to expect from the Anjunadeep protege. Rather than pander to the purists or create music for DJs alone, the American has always trodden his own, distinctive path – perhaps best summed up by his phones-free event and label concept This Never Happened.
With his most recent This Never Happened tours including sold-out shows at Warsaw in New York, The Fonda in LA, and Zoo Project in Sydney, the This Never Happened message is being spread far and wide.
After blowing up in the blogosphere with a series of Soundcloud-driven Hype Machine Number ones around 2014, Lane 8 rose to wider prominence through a relationship with the tastemaking Anjunadeep label and his critically acclaimed 2015 album ‘Rise’.
Alongside his own productions, his remixes have almost become as sought after as his originals with reworks of Maribou State’s Wallflower, and ODESZA’s ‘Bloom’. More recently he has given RUFUS’s leftfield pop gem ‘Innerbloom’ and deadmau5’s iconic ‘Strobe’ his own unique touch.
Lane 8 is set to drop his upcoming album Little By Little. He also is planning a tour to follow the album drop, which you can grab tickets for here. Listen to Lane 8’s Winter 2017 Mixtape below and stay tuned for more.
