Spanning many different genres, Seven Lions has been picking up fans from all over the EDM scene. This has led to an uncharacteristic rise in popularity for the 24 year old producer from California and an official endorsement from the much loved Above & Beyond after winning a remix competition put on by the trance super group. Though he initially started out doing trance, the producer has been crossing genres and has been putting out a lot of dubstep tracks – though I love that he still keeps the trance elements and influences throughout most of the songs.
The fact that he has been touring with Gemini makes perfect sense once you listen to a few of these tracks. Seven Lions’ contest winning song is an amazing rendition of You Got To Go, that stays true to Gemini’s chill/trance/love step style, though I think Seven Lions does it even better. Next up, my all time favorite song so far. Still With Me gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it. This is a beautiful chill step song with some amazing vocals and just the right amount of wobble. At about 1:40 in is where I start freaking out :O You’ll probably recognize this next remix of Paul Van Dyk’s I Don’t Deserve You. It’s been awhile since I’ve heard a Paul Van Dyk song and this one brings me back to the day. Finally, two songs off of Seven Lions’ new EP “Polarize.” I like how he keeps the trance elements going in this EP but has a harder dubstep background to them than most of his other songs. Enjoy!
