One of LA’s finest producer/DJs and GDD™ Guest Mix alum, Lonely Boy, is coming through with his truly outstanding Don’t You Think EP, and sure enough, Desert Hearts Records has it locked for a release on Tuesday, January 27th. The EP features two masterful tunes, “Don’t You Think” and “Rise.” The first is a Lee Burridge-inspired cut that sets a smooth, rolling tech-house vibe before breaking through with a pumping groove, while the latter features a monstrous evolving bassline, orchestra hits, peak-time energy, and a hint of classic Bob Marley. Enjoy below and head after the jump for the story behind “Don’t You Think” from Lonely Boy himself.
“‘Don’t You Think’ was directly inspired by Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream party at the Nest. So it was only fitting that I send the tune to Lee, and even more fitting that he immediately loved it, and signed it to his label Get Weird. It seemed like the stars had aligned perfectly, but after almost a year, circumstances forced Lee to shut down Get Weird, and thus the track was relinquished back to me.
I believe that when one door closes, another opens, and that is exactly what happened with Desert Hearts. They welcomed me, and my music with open arms into their burgeoning family, and I could not feel more at home.” – Lonely Boy
