Seven Lions Shines With Luminous New Single “Dreamin’” Feat. Fiora

Seven Lions Dreaming

When it comes to the euphoric highs and wonderfully gritty lows of melodic dubstep, nobody does it better than Seven Lions. The Santa Barbara-born producer kicked off an explosive year back in February with Ophelia, his very own record label and a place to share his unique style on his own terms. He’s gone on to collaborate with Jason Ross as well as Kill The Noise and Tritonal since then, dropping diverse releases that highlight his range of sound. Today Seven Lions continues that hot streak with “Dreamin’” feat. Fiora, the latest to drop on Ophelia.

At nearly five and a half minutes long, the breathtaking “Dreamin’” takes it’s time to thoughtfully craft each layer of the production. The shimmering progressions float higher and higher as the song progresses, providing a fitting base for Fiora’s ethereal vocals to soar — many Seven Lions fans will recognize the talented vocalist from tracks like “Days To Come.” Shying away from the bass this time around, Seven Lions instead utilizes glowing synths on the drop that will absolutely radiate through your speakers. Between the sound design, vocals and mesmerizing art used to portray the single, “Dreamin’” will give you a tiny escape from reality as we head into the weekend. Check it out below and enjoy!

PREMIERE | Oliver Nelson Drops Disco-Infused House Single “Talk” Ft. Linae

Oliver Nelson

We are deep in the heart of summer on this Friday the 13th, and there aren’t many producers out there that better capture the carefree sound of the season than Oliver Nelson. From getting his start crafting disco-tinged remixes for Route 94 and CAZZETTE to unleashing fresh singles like “Rhubarb” in more recent years, this Swedish nu-disco savant always keeps us coming back for more with his always radiant, always danceable signature. Today we’re ecstatic to welcome Oliver Nelson back to the site with a premiere of his latest single, “Talk” featuring fellow Swedish artist Linae.

Oliver Nelson finds his disco-driven stride on “Talk,” putting forth a track bursting with striking percussion and funkified basslines that will take you back in time. Linae’s feelgood falsettos shine atop the deep bass, helping to create a mood that will have you bobbing your head no matter where you’re listening from. To put it bluntly, “Talk” is simply what Oliver Nelson does best, and we’re loving it as we head into the weekend. Check it out below and enjoy!

Paper Diamond Returns With Versatile New Album 'Holograms'

Paper Diamond holograms

Although he just recently emerged from a two-year hiatus, you’d be hard-pressed to find a bass music fan who doesn’t appreciate the versatility that is Paper Diamond. From his debut 2005 release of the iconic “Can We Go Up” with Mad Decent to the his ethereal Levitate LP with Pretty Lights Music in 2011, the Colorado-born artist has proved time and time again just how dynamic he really is. Today we welcome Paper Diamond back onto the scene with Holograms, an album years in the making that takes listeners on a sonic journey through sound.

Paper Diamond has kept the bass community at attention since he dropped “WORK 9000,” a ferocious, bass-laden single that ends this album on a triumphant note, in January. Anticipation only grew from there with the punchy “Downfalls” and the surprising moombahton heater “Bass Real Big,” with each singles’ distinct sound characterized by artwork the producer created himself.

These three tracks were just a small taste of the 11-track LP, and in it Paper Diamond pulls from the past to push his genre forward. Low, rumbling songs like “Wear Me Out,” with its haunting whispers and shifty percussion, stand side by side with album standouts like “Piece Of Mind,” a chilled out work that will take you on a ride through the rise and fall of its otherworldly progressions. The shimmering transition in “Hologram 02” leaps straight into the ominous, jaw-dropping “Yay.” Pieces like “Done Up” feat. Rarri channel hip-hop while “Lose My Mind” feat. JSTJR and Lafa Taylor goes moombahton once again. Subgenres of all kinds find their home in this project, fitting together in a way that only Paper Diamond could pull off. Holograms isn't just everything we expected from the dynamite producer — it’s everything and much, much more. Check it out below and enjoy!
