It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know this next one is an epic track, even if you haven’t listened to it yet. After all, it brings together the talented expertise of Seattle dubstep/electro prodigy Seven Lions, Austin luminaries Tritonal, and NYC dubstep/electro connoisseurs Kill The Noise, AND it features breathtaking vocals by LA chanteuse HALIENE, too! We find ourselves racing our way towards a beautiful “horizon” on the plumed wings of this majestic and grand opus. Mellifluous yet heavy, smooth rolling yet resolute, this four way collaboration fuses electro house, dubstep, pop, future bass, and even drum & bass to give us a cornucopia of scintillating feels. Horizon can also be streamed and purchased, here.

Late last year, the music gods smiled upon us and gave us an epic track that involves two projects that we love and respect very much here at IHM. They gave us Cold Skin, a cavernous and expansive yet tender and stirring melodic bass opus that unites Portland chillstep/vocal bass duo ECHOS with influential dubstep/electro producer Seven Lions. 24 hours ago, a spectacular six track remix pack was released for Cold Skin. I spent an extended amount of time enjoying all the tracks off the release, which opens with this majestic sweeping, emotionally supercharged remix by London’s Koven. His panoramic sprawling dubstep edit is an endless torrent of heart bursting feels. You can stream/download the new Cold Skin remix pack from major retailers, here. The rousing collection also features edits by Stonebank, V!RTU, Mr FijiWiji, and MiTiS.

I near choked on my coffee this morning when I saw an ECHOS and Seven Lions collaboration surface on my radar, I was that agitated with excitement. It was but a few Fridays ago that I eagerly caught ECHOS’ San Francisco debut at Popscene to learn how spectacularly rousing their music can truly be in person. The fact that this incredible Portland duo has partnered up with venerated melodic bass producer Seven Lions was the best spirit lifting news to arrive in a rather unfortunately glum election week. It comes as no surprise that ECHOS’ emotively exquisite, atmospheric heartrending electronica pairs gorgeously with Seven Lions’ production. Cold Skin is cavernous and expansive, yet intimately tender and stirring. Lexi’s exceptional voice lifts us to cathartic apexes while Seven Lions’ cinematic production packs in those endless infinite feels. Trust me, you’ll be hard pressed to find another electronic aria as moving as this one right now. Cold Skin is out now on Monstercat. Grab it from iTunes.

A Seven Lions, Illenium, and Said The Sky track has to be the most heavenly of all collaborations. Prior to today, I wouldn’t have predicted that such an epic event would ever occur, yet the planets have aligned, and here we are, getting swept away by a divine partnership among the leading melodic bass producers of the world. Goosebumps rise on my skin as I lose myself in the beauty of Rush Over Me, beckoned by HALIENE’s crystalline voice and the trio’s three dimensional, mellifluous lush dubstep production. Rush Over Me is a deeply emotional voyage, and it’s out now on iTunes.

I’m already ridiculously elated that California based chillstep producer Seven Lions enlisted Sombear on his new cinematic track A Way To Say Goodbye, but now I’m even more overjoyed, because Monstercat signed producer Puppet has given it a gorgeous remix that really takes advantage of the original’s heart rending sentiment. Puppet, apparently, likes to say goodbye in a very epic manner. His goodbye is one that melds electro and progressive together in the most uplifting fashion. Goodbyes are always bittersweet, the last, cherished memory before parting ways. Puppet’s remix certainly captures that feeling, and before you know it, it’s over. This is one of those songs that could soundtrack the closing credits of any emotional moment.

I’m a long time fan of dubstep, in all its forms that took shape over the years, from the early days in South London and beyond. I’m also a fan of the local music scene here in my beloved San Francisco Bay. We have so many amazing artists, bands, and producers residing right here at home, and one of such rising acts, which I previously featured, is T-Mass. In my last post about T-Mass, I mentioned that the producer considers Skrillex and Adventure Club as big influences. There’s no doubt that the fast rising Seven Lions (who opened for Skrillex at one of his San Francisco tour stops a few months ago) is an influence too. In fact, T-Mass tags his new track The One, feat. Mona Moua, with “Seven Lions”. It’s a wonderful and entrancing taste of T-Mass’s melodic dubstep.

Some time last year, I first stumbled upon a Seven Lions remix. I knew right then and there that Jeff Montalvo would be part of a new wave of up and coming dubstep producers, riding the wake left behind by the impressive rise of Skrillex and the momentum of America’s sudden dubstep addiction, but also crafting their own singular paths and sounds out of it, allowing the natural evolution of music to take place. Indeed, Skrillex has ventured forth into new sonic territory, while producers like Seven Lions have focused on a new brand of more subtle, less glaring and grating dubstep. A few months ago, I attended a Skrillex show on his Take Over tour to San Francisco. The one I attended, partly by design and partly due to venue choice, happened to be the show where Seven Lions opened. He threw down a fantastic set and easily could have been the headliner. The Santa Barbara producer released his brand new EP Worlds Apart this week, and all five tracks on the EP are stunning. Likely the most popular right now is Don’t Leave, a melodic track featuring red hot British pop star Ellie Goulding with always on point vocals. However, none of the other tracks are to be waved away or overlooked. Blissed out second track Worlds Apart features Kerli. The cathartic tune reminds me greatly of Zedd’s Clarity, featuring Foxes, but it’s undeniably, obviously a dubstep tune. Head over to Seven Lion’s Soundcloud to check out the rest of the EP, and prepare to hear his name a WHOLE lot more.

Röyksopp – Running To The Sea (Ft. Susanne Sundfør) (Seven Lions Remix)

November 23, 2013

Seeing as it’s Friday (TGIF), I should go with something high energy before I run out the door so I can get some stuff done before the next show I’m catching tonight. Seven Lions is a dubstep producer from Santa Barbara, just down the coast from me. He remixed Norwegian duo Röyksopp’s Running To The Sea which features Susanne Sundfør on sweeping vocals. The rebuilt track has some massive synths and sick beats. Melodic, ethereal dubstep? Sure, thank you!
