Seven Lions @ Webster Hall - July 26, 2013 Pre Post

Maybe it’s his shy persona, or preference of maintaining a low social profile, but I always seem to forget about Seven Lions. However, when I heard that he was going to be in town this weekend, I wanted to kick myself in the face for being so negligent. After spending a mere half hour on his Soundcloud, I was all in love again with this talented dubstep producer. Spinning a deep vertical in to the genre of dubstep, from chillstep to superstep, Seven Lions has truly mastered the ability of being a diverse artist unlike many of his genre counterparts. Another  notable attribute of Seven Lions is his beautiful use of melody in all of his tracks, creating a lyrical base for the harder beats that he layers on top. Take all of this and combine it with his use of sentimental lyrics, and Sevon Lions could just be that sensitive grunge boy we’ve all been searching for. If you’re in the NYC area on Friday, make sure you come around to Webster Hall for what promises to be an brilliant performance by Seven Lions.

Free Download: Seven Lions Mix for OWSLA

Roseland just saw two huge headliners in the form of Porter Robinson and Above & Beyond, but Seven Lions needs to be mentioned as well. It's really a great day when a producer like Seven Lions, whose fame is due almost entirely to his presence within the online EDM community, gets his big break at one of America's best venues. I tend to be pretty picky when it comes to who I like when you're considering "live" dance music, but considering this tracklist I'm sure this would be very entertaining. As Seven Lions continues his push on OWSLA I hope he can continue upwards on his path from producer-sensation to performing DJ/producer, which is not such an easy task.

"Days To Come" - Seven Lions (Au5 & I.Y.F.F.E. Remix)

OWSLA together with Beatport just finished crowning the winner of their remix contest for "Days To Come." Californian Jeff Montalvo, known as Seven Lions, picked the winner of this one himself, and I'm sure you'll agree with his choice after you hear this one. Au5 & I.Y.F.F.E. add a Drumstep beat to the smooth bass-driven original, turning it into a more stimulating track and one that'll keep your adrenaline pumping. Be sure to grab this one off of Beatport and support these up & coming artists!

Out now on Beatport!

Free Download: "Isis" (Deep Mix) - Seven Lions

As a follow up to the original "Isis," released on his Seven Lions EP, the Cali Trance-stepper is back today with a haunting new take on the original for free download. Starting off with a tribal, milky aura, the Deep Mix sounds eerily like something you'd hear from someone like Beats Antique, before it blasts off into a dream world of glitch, bass, and 8-bit tunage. Truly a transcedental piece of music, Seven Lions proves with this one his ability to defy any genre as he takes on a project of intergalactic proportions. The result of his hard work and seamless mixing is a prayer through sound, a hymn bursting with culture, soul, and remnants of our collective origin.

"Days to Come" - Seven Lions (Coyote Kisses Remix)

Inspired by Seven Lion’s distinct brand of trancestep, the boys of Coyote Kisses have come up with their own unique interpretation of his "Days To Come." CK slow their roll and take a step back to a soothing 86.0 BPM, incorporating harmonious arrangements of electric guitar samples, drum work, and glitchy lead play that evoke feelings of euphoria and nostalgia back to the times when punk rock was as viral as EDM is now. After winning Clockwork’s Mad Decent remix contest for “Titan,” the two are currently leading in the votes category of Seven Lion’s “Days To Come” Beatport contest. CK continues to rise up in the ranks of EDM fame with the creation of productions that have been more and more pronounced. Keep an eye on these guys, as their big breaks are now well within reach.
