Yoo, this melodic progressive trap remix by Slander of Seven Lions’ “Don’t Leave” featuring Ellie Goulding is off the chain! It was put on my radar two days back, and I have to admit, I should’ve listened to it the minute it was sent to me, it’s that epic! From support by the likes of Snake, Diplo, and Carnage, be sure to keep Slander on your music radar, because at the looks of things, or I should say the sounds of things, their future is looking bright! This is a must listen and a must download!

Dubstep | Seven Lions – Worlds Apart EP

Posted by on May 3, 2014

Seven Lions - Worlds Apart EP
Whenever Seven Lions releases new music, you immediately stop what you are doing to take a listen. His sound is so unique, enthralling and well put together that every time you hear new something him it is a totally different experience. Recently signed to Universal’s burgeoning dance imprint Casablanca Records, which has artists like Tiësto, TJR, Martin Garrix and Chase & Status in its stables, Seven Lions was given access to top of the line topline writers like Ellie Goulding and Kerli.

All five tunes show the mastery of Jeff Montalvo and the hard work he has put in over the winter break he took from touring to focus on just making music. The aforementioned Ellie Goulding kicks off the EP, featured on the first track. It is fitting that someone whose career is largely owed to producers remixing her songs, Ellie Goulding, hopped on this EP to provide her instantly recognizable vocal talents to the trancy opening tune, “Don’t Leave”. Only “Strangers” is a previously released track, with each record having its own feel and sound, yet remaining true to the Seven Lions ethos. This may be his most complete EP to date and this will hold us over for quite some time as we know the perfectionist takes a while to release material.

Progressive House | Seven Lions with Myon & Shane 54 feat. Tove Lo – Strangers (Paris Blohm Remix)

Posted by on March 13, 2014


In his first release since his collaborative efforts on  “Colors”, Paris Blohm has taken on the task of remixing Seven Lions and Myon & Shane 54’s “Strangers”. The remix has his typical full sounding production which keeps itself in the pleasant middle ground between the uplifting sound and the harder hitting stuff.

Dubstep, Progressive House | Denzal Park & Dave Winnel – The Great Valley

Denzal Park & Dave Winnel - The Great Valley
A trio of under rated producers from down under come together to create something that is very different for both parties. They have become known for their clubby, progressive house, and with “The Great Valley” they keep some of that sound, but go for something a little more mellow and different. They eschew the trend of big drops and go for something more soothing, with long melodic segments that almost act as though they are narrating some epic journey, only to be interrupted by a Seven Lions-esque dubstep bridge. It is great to see artists experiment outside of their comfort zone, and even better to see it work and it does here in “The Great Valley”.

Compilation, Featured, House | Top 50 Dance Tracks Of 2013 (Including 50-41)

Top 50 dance tracks of 2013

Yes we know, you may be “top _____ of 2013” listed out, but bear with us as we present you our top 50 dance tracks of 2013. In the past we have done just big room / progressive, but here we attempt to take on the whole genre, from trap to progressive to deep house. A few ground rules and biases for how these tracks were selected. “Top” means biggest and best. So the most supported and played out tracks, first and foremost, but also our own bias as well to make this list not just a carbon copy of every other one you have read. All of us are based in the US / Canada, so our perception of what is played live is a largely US worldview, though we try and take a step back. The songs have to have been released in 2013. So tracks like “Easy”, “I Could Be The One”, “Alive”, “Clarity” and “Harlem Shake”, while all huge in 2013, won’t qualify for the list because they were released in 2012. Tough luck, but I think the artists will manage. Check out 50-41 after the jump and at the end find links for 40-31, 30-21, 20-11 and the best of the best, 10-1.


Dubstep, Trance | Röyksopp – Running To The Sea Ft. Susanne Sundfør (Seven Lions Remix)

Posted by on December 2, 2013

It has taken a long time for me to gather enough nerve to write this review, because this piece of music intimidates me so much. I don’t know how to accurately convey the way that this song made me feel when I heard it for the first time. I was on a crowded city bus, but felt completely alone. I didn’t feel lonely, rather, I felt as if I had been transported away by the music, and was in a different place than the people around me. I moved to the music without regard for the perceptions or judgments of strangers in my vicinity, and it felt surreal.

Seven Lions

There aren’t many guys who have created trends and styles in dance music today. Seven Lions’ patented brand of melodic dubstep has quickly become one of the go-to styles for a throng of copycats and established producers alike. After transitioning from metal to electronic music, Jeff Montalvo made his presence felt in a huge way with his Beatport competition winning remix of Above & Beyond’s “You Got To Go”, that would launch his career and open doors that were not even on possible for him to reach before.

We caught up with Seven Lions on his tour bus before he was slated to go on at Pier 94 on Halloween with Krewella, Gareth Emery, Candyland and Cash Cash. We chatted about his upcoming plans, including taking time off from touring next year, touring in general, releases he has coming up, music piracy and much more.
