Lane 8 celebrates five years of label with special compilation, ‘V’

Back in 2016, Lane 8 introduced the concept of phone-free events titled “This Never Happened”. The intention was to remove the small screens from attendee’s faces and give them a moment they could personally experience in the moment. The series of concerts became so popular that Lane 8 transformed the movement into a new record label.

The label is celebrating its fifth year and to celebrate, is releasing an anniversary EP titled ‘V. The EP features 21 tracks with 16 of the label’s most popular releases over its five-year span. Some of the tracks found on ‘V’ are Lane 8’s flip of Virtual Self’s ‘Ghost Voices’, Sultan + Shepard’s ‘nCTRL‘, Ocula’s remix of ‘Waves‘ by Le Youth’s and Rinzen and Anaphase with ‘Some Good Here‘.

Known for his iconic melodic style, Lane 8 has become a tour de force within house music. This Never Happened has now grown into one of the most prominent labels in electronic music. With already over 100 releases to its name, the record label has grown exponentially.

“It has been an incredible journey over the past 5 years, thank you all for listening!!” – Lane 8, Twitter

The ‘V’ anniversary compilation is out now on Spotify and can be listened to below.

Hey everyone! I was blessed to have the opportunity to join the WRY team in 2020. I edit WRY's Youtube content and am also a writer for the website. I have been a massive fan in the EDM scene for over ten years and have been fortunate enough to see some iconic moments in person. Some of my favorite artists are Avicii, Martin Garrix, Krewella, The Chainsmokers, and KSHMR. I absolutely love to attend live shows. I try to spend almost every week at some kind of live event or festival (if not in person, at least watching online). And its a guarantee you can always catch me at Ultra Miami every year! Thank you for all the support! Follow me on Twitter to see which show I will be at next! Hopefully I can see you at an event or festival soon!
