Whenever a new This Never Happened offering comes our way, we get naturally eager to listen. The excitement further heightens when the release comes from a newcomer making his label debut. Lane 8 has continually proven his distinguished ability to uncover the best up-and-coming melodic house music, and he has struck gold once again with his latest signee Paraleven. Today, the rising producer receives his inaugural introduction to the site as we enthusiastically premiere his A/B side EP Ripples / Siphon.
The dual-track package is nothing short of incredible. “Ripple” has an atmosphere built upon a gritty bassline, a retro-style synth and a persuasive vocal chop; a song that should be featured in the soundtrack of Tron. “Siphon” is darker in nature, with deep percussion that guides the listener through profound pads and shimmering leads. Paraleven seized his opportunity to work with This Never Happened, and has delivered a powerful debut release. Enjoy!
