The dance music prodigy from Santa Barbara, California, Seven Lions, released his incendiary set from his Ultra Music Festival debut at the OWSLA stage on Saturday, March 16th. Through his cohesive, yet incredibly eclectic, set consisting of tasteful Electro-House, Dubstep and everything in between, he was able to provide listeners with a powerful, deep-rooted experience unlike any other. This Seven Lions performance, along with his many more to come, serves to strengthen his highly sought-after appeal by displaying not only his superb music in a live setting, but also his prowess as a DJ. He is set to continue on his ascent to international dance music stardom as 2013 has already proven to be another groundbreaking year.
When I think of the Mile High City I usually don’t think of a burgeoning new outlet for fresh trap music. But Basscrooks are quickly changing that with their dirty, yet melodic sound. Although they may not have won the Mad Decent remix competition for Clockwork’s “Titan,” their energetic trap re-vamp certainly caught my eye. If you happen to find yourself in Boulder this February make sure to catch their set at Dayglow with Borgore and Seven Lions!
As a follow-up to his truly groundbreaking Days To Come EP, Santa Barbara’s Seven Lions rounds off an astounding year with yet another enlightening work of art, a remix of Delerium‘s “Days Turn Into Nights.” Seven Lions has proven again and again that his deep knowledge of electronic music production allows for his art to remain eclectic without deviating from his own extraordinary brand of emotive bass music.
With this remix, he draws the listener in by tastefully weaving vocals in and out of carefully constructed basslines, glittering melodies, soaring pads, and glitch accents, all supported by a strong mid-tempo backbone. Seven Lions continues to exemplify his unrelenting passion and breathtaking yet powerful style. Enjoy the new remix, but before doing so, here are a few words from the mastermind himself:
“This is the release of my new remix of Delerium – Days Turn Into Nights. Delerium has been a huge influience on me, long before I even got into EDM. Really excited to share this one with you!”
Berklee College of Music graduate, Matt Lange, might just be one of the next best producers to look out for in my personal opinion. Piqued by his inclusion in Usher’s remix EP on RCA, I investigated Matt Lange and his back catalogue, and I was astonished not only by the amount of work this guy has put out already but the extreme diversity of his sound production. His focus is seemingly similar to that of Seven Lions; morphing Trance, Progressive House, Dubstep, and Glitch in a way that shouldn’t sound good but really, truly does. I encourage you to check out all of his tunes over on Soundcloud, and make sure to give a listen to this incredibly sultry remix of ‘Numb’ below. √+

I’m sure many could relate to feeling that Seven Lions was something truly extraordinary upon first listen. With his self-titled EP due out on OWSLA next Tuesday (10/16), he certainly won the heart of Skrillex and has received both support and collaboration requests from some of the most influential artists in dance music such as Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, and Paul Van Dyk, among others. We have the pleasure of premiering this Seven Lions mix that is a proper display of his visionary talent and unconventional style that is simply unparalleled. In just under one hour, he takes you through his multifarious selections which include his signature bass music tracks, blistering electro-house, and euphoric trance. We’ve also included a brand new track off of the EP, “She was ft. Birds of Paradise,” that is another showcase of his versatility as he ventures into the glitch-hop realm without diminishing his distinct vibe. Enjoy all of this music and spread the word, Seven Lions is just getting started.

Santa Barbara’s Seven Lions has been catapulted into the spotlight in 2012, with remixes for Above & Beyond and Tritonal charting everywhere from Beatport to Hype Machine — carrying the torch for the Progressive Dubstep sound that he has become so widely known for. Seemingly fitting hand-in-glove, Seven Lions was given the task of remixing Paul van Dyk‘s “I Don’t Deserve You” off of Paul’s 6th album, Evolution – one of seven remixes for the acclaimed single that will be released as an EP later this month on PvD’s Vandit Records. Get the exclusive download below, and read on for the amazingly well-produced, post-apocalyptic music video that accompanies PvD’s vision for the remix.
