Seven Lions Launches Two-Hour Episode 1 Of New "The Observatory" Mix Series

Seven Lions

Seven Lions, the master of melody-driven dubstep, has done the unexpected and released a rare 2-hour mix today as Episode 1 launching his new The Observatory mix series. 

Seven Lions is currently a month into his cross-country Horizon Tour riding on the recent release of his EP Where I Won't Be Found and the latest Kill The Noize collaboration "Cold Hearted" as he once again continues his hot streak in 2017. The producer has used his rapidly expanding platform to push further into previously unexplored genres, mentioning The Observatory series is sonically different "this (series) allows me to highlight tracks I wouldn't normally play in my live sets, and explore different sides of my tastes and influences." 

True to his word, the melodic dubstep DJ/Producer delivers a much more experimental performance. Seven Lions expertly takes listeners on a sonic journey across a range of genres from San Holo's "I Still See Your Face" to far reaches of Drum & Bass moments like Nu:Logic's "Driftwood". Seven Lions really leaves no wasted space on the 30-track mix, packing in music from an impressive list of producers including Lane 8, Above & Beyond, The M Machine, Madeon, Porter Robinson, and more. Seven Lions kicks off this new series exercising his musical creativity and gives a truly unguarded session below. Enjoy!

Seven Lions And Kill The Noise Share Massive Melodic Dubstep Collaboration “Cold Hearted” Ahead Of Joint Tour

In honor of their joint Horizon Tour that kicks off in just one short day, TSIS favorites Seven Lions and Kill The Noise have gifted listeners with their long-awaited collab “Cold Hearted.” Both of these producers have impressed throughout 2017, from Seven Lions’ experimental Where I Won’t Be Found EP to Kill The Noise’s massive “Killuminati Mixtape” and much more. It’s only fitting that these two have finally come together to create music and bring their iconic sound on the road together.  

“Cold Hearted” very well could be one of the biggest collabs of the year. The track leads you in on a deceivingly light note with atmospheric synths and haunting vocal samples before breaking into a drop that brings together the two powerhouse producers’ distinctive signatures effortlessly. Kill The Noise’s gritty bass and heavy kicks take center stage on the first drop, with Seven Lions’ euphoric style running below the surface. This filthy production appears once again towards the end of the release, with a smooth melodic dubstep interlude leading you from one drop to the next.

The Horizon Tour, which will also include Tritonal, kicks off tomorrow in Brooklyn (find tickets here). Stream “Cold Hearted” and check out tour dates below – enjoy!

Seven Lions Shares Diverse ‘Where I Won’t Be Found’ EP

Seven Lions Where I Wont Be Found

Melodic dubstep king Seven Lions is back with a new EP. Titled Where I Won’t Be Found, the 8-track offering surprises with the sheer range of sounds it explores in roughly 30 minutes worth of music. 

Seven Lions has successfully built the anticipation for this EP throughout 2017, dropping upbeat singles “Freesol” and “Where I Won’t Be Found” over the past few months. Although both of these songs showcased Seven Lions’s distinct euphoric signature, they definitely weren’t a preview of the EP itself. The producer stepped outside of the box in all directions with Where I Won’t Be Found as a whole.

Perhaps most interesting are the tracks created with Rico & Miella, a New York-based vocalist/production duo. Both of these songs, titled “Sun Won’t Rise” and “Without You My Love,” channel a haunting vocal tone familiar to Seven Lions fans. When it comes to the production, however, both take an ambient, downtempo route that’s pretty new for the artist. Yet another standout is “Rescue Me,” a feverish future bass original that enlisted Unlike Pluto in co-production. Two originals that go back to Seven Lions’s melodic dubstep roots, “Steps of Deep Slumber” and “Silent Skies” feat. Karra, close out the project.

Overall, Where I Wont Be Found is quite a dynamic collection of work, and we’re most definitely on board. Stream the EP below and enjoy!
