In a 24-hour period over the weekend, Seven Lions headlined the Avalon Hollywood, played EDC New York, and flew down to Orlando for his third show in a row. Following his run of phenomenal performances, he released his jaw-dropping Minnesota collaboration, “Fevers,” with the Mimi Page on vocal duty. The newest addition to Seven Lions‘ outstanding music catalog serves as a testament to his authenticity as a visionary artist striving for originality. In “Fevers,” he seamlessly merges Mimi Page‘s haunting vocals with powerful melodies and his signature bass-heavy sound for an emotional masterpiece unlike any other. Listen/download below (lyrics after the jump).
“The Foundation, is just that. It’s me going back to my roots of dub, hip hop and acid. It’s my modern take of decades of music I grew up with infused with electronic music (elements).”
This EP is seven tracks of big, brutal, gangster ass reggae vibes. Melding dub, reggae, acid, trap, electro and everything in between; David Heartbreak stretches his musical roots with an incredibly diverse and engaging sonic pallet. Perfectly suited for OWSLA, who just keeps supplying us with the goodies this week.

In anticipation for his debut EP on Always Never, Crywolf has continued along his recent path of free releases and dropped his first single from the EP for free download on his Soundcloud. The track, entitled “The Moon Is Falling Down”, is a valiant introduction into Crywolf’s EP, showing off the vibe and extension of Crywolf’s production styles. A haunting and soft melody aided by vocals from Charity Lane (who appears on his previous free giveaway, “Silence Pt. II“) drops into a crashing and cascading drop that brings a surprising adrenaline rush to the track.
You can listen to and download the track below, as well as purchase the whole EP on iTunes, Beatport, and pretty much every other place you buy music. Click after the jump to stream the rest of the tracks on the album as well!
