Seven Lions & Blastoyz Unleash Ominous Psytrance Single “After Dark” Feat. Fiora

seven lions after dark

If any producer has proven time and time again that he can experiment in various sub genres, it’s Seven Lions. The Seattle-based producer reigns as one of our favorites year after year, and for good reason: from vibrant offerings like “Calling You Home” to gritty, abrasive releases like “The Sirens,” you can never be quite sure what he has up his sleeve. After dropping the shimmering “Dreamin’” last month, Seven Lions is back today with a single that descends to the other end of the spectrum: a collaboration with Blastoyz titled “After Dark” feat. Fiora. 

With the Tel Aviv-based Blastoyz lending his psytrance expertise to the single, Seven Lions takes an ominous plunge with “After Dark.” A heart attack-paced cascade of bass guides the drop, with everything from the menacing synths to the haunting vocal samples creating a mystical, borderline occult signature that pulls you deeper with every note. Fiora, a popular name among Seven Lions fans due to features on lighter tracks like “Dreamin’” and “Days To Come,” flexes her vocal range throughout, honing a graveness in her tone that drives the wonderfully grim mood of the track to severe new heights. It’s powerful, it’s intense, it’s wicked, and we’re loving it. Check out “After Dark” below and enjoy!

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!

Seven Lions, Kill The Noise & Tritonal Unleash Massive Collaboration “Horizon” Feat. HALIENE

Seven Lions kill the noise

After coming together throughout fall 2017 for the Horizon Tour, powerhouse producers Seven Lions, Kill The Noise and duo Tritonal dropped their much-anticipated collaboration “Horizon” feat. HALIENE today. Each of these explosive artists has been up to big things in 2018 – Seven Lions announced his Ophelia label and Kill The Noise dropped his incredible “Killumination” mixtape as he heads out on his own headlining tour, to start. “Horizon” is yet another impressive achievement from each of these musicians.

A collaboration between three groups (composed of four producers total) is easier said than done; with vastly different styles, the final product could have descended into a jumbled mess. Instead, each artist’s signature shines while still remaining cohesive with the track’s tone.

A euphoric intro guides the listener in, with HALIENE’s lofty vocals and a gradual build sounding quite Seven Lions-esque. The drop is split into three distinct sections where we can only assume each producer or group steps up to the plate. The first piece is reminiscent of Seven Lions, composed of a raucous kick and rumbling bass combined with glowing progressions. Next up is Kill The Noise – this dark section bursting with chopped up bass will no doubt take you by surprise. Last is Tritonal with a more radiant, lighthearted piece rolling smoothly into the outro. This style of collaborating was definitely a risk that paid off in leaps and bounds for these four. Check out “Horizon” below and enjoy!
