Lane 8 continues to impress with both his musical output and his pursuit of a different kind of party experience with his ‘This Never Happened’ phone-free shows.
His latest ‘Little Voices’ arrives off the back of his the birth of his daughter and sees the San Francisco producer on imperious form.
For the track, Lane 8 crafts a sultry cut of deep house with progressive overtones that’s steeped in reflective melancholic melodies and serves up just enough energy and emotion for the perfect end-of-set finisher.
Lane 8 has also announced a new outdoor version of his hugely popular ‘This Never Happened’ parties which sees a blanket ban on all mobile phones so attendees are forced to live in the moment and not to capture the night’s most special moments for social media posterity.
“I truly feel that we developed a connection with music and each other that needs to be built upon and nurtured.”
“The response to our This Never Happened tour last year completely blew me away,” explained Lane 8 in a lengthy post on his Facebook page. “The shows were among my favorite club experiences ever – and to see you all embrace the concept and make those shows so incredible was one of the proudest moments of my career. I truly feel that we developed a connection with music and each other that needs to be built upon and nurtured.”
“I’ve had a little dream of doing a series of extended daytime events since we launched the TNH concept,” explained Lane 8 via a lengthy post to his Facebook page. “So, this summer, we are excited to bring TNH back, with a twist, for the Summer Gatherings – three extended daytime parties in three unique locations with an extra focus on positivity, character and atmosphere.”
“I’ve always felt there’s a special magic that comes together at the best daytime events, so my team and I have been searching high and low for locations that have that unique and positive vibe. I’m really excited to announce the first three – the stunning outdoor Mishawaka Amphitheatre in Colorado, the outdoor courtyard of The Well in Brooklyn and an amazing warehouse space in San Francisco.
“Each has its own unique character and vibe, and we’ll be putting in extra touches to make the events even more special.
“We’re also changing the format of the events to create a more expanded musical journey. I’ll start each of these shows with a 2 hour warmup set – then our special guest Luttrell will take over, before a 3 hour closing set from me. I also wanted to share some new music as we announce these shows – and Little Voices was made with exactly this kind of show in mind. I’ve been closing a lot of my sets with this recently, hope you enjoy and hope to see you this summer.”
