Lane 8 & Kidnap Kid – Aba


Kidnap Kid has joined forces with Lane 8 to release on Anjunabeats. It’s pretty special for the both of them as they started on the track in 2014 and have really built up a solid friendship. Even when the track was still in the demo stage it was heavily requested in their sets and their fans have been asking what it is for some time.

Lane 8 & Kidnap Kid ‘Aba’ out now on Anjunabeats. Get it here.

Icarus – Home feat. Aurora (Lane 8 Remix)


Anjunadeep mainstay Lane 8 delivers another stellar remix. Icarus’ “Home” featuring the ethereal vocals of Norwegian dream-pop artist Aurora is flipped into a melodic house gem, a perfect score for the summer of 2016.

The first few months of 2016 have been an extremely productive time in the studio for me. after an exhausting year of the most intense touring i’ve ever done, i came home with a lot of new ideas and inspiration and finally had the time to sit and write and translate all the energy i had into actual music. i’m really proud of everything that came out of those sessions, and i can’t wait for you guys to hear it all. today, i’m really happy to share one of those new pieces, a remix I made for Icarus and AURORA’s beautiful song ‘Home’“. – Lane 8

Lane 8 – Rise (Live & In Session)


Selling out shows from Los Angeles to London, Daniel Goldstein aka Lane 8 marked himself out as one of electronic music’s rising stars in 2015 with the release of his acclaimed debut album ‘Rise’ on Anjunadeep. Highly praised by The New York Times, Hype Machine, Mixmag, The Fader and The Metro, and supported by global tastemakers Annie Mac, Jason Bentley and Pete Tong, Lane 8’s diverse sound connected with audiences across the board.

Casting new light on the songs and musicality at its heart, ‘Rise (Live & In Session)’ collates live and session recordings of five tracks from the album, recorded with collaborators Solomon Grey and Lulu James and featuring live keys and arrangement from Daniel himself.

Album opener ‘Loving You’ appears as an ‘In Session’ performance with original vocalist and Jon Hopkins collaborator Lulu James.

Long-time collaborators Solomon Grey return on ‘Diamonds’ and ‘Hot As You Want’, taken from the popular ‘In Session’ videos debuted last year, originally premiered by Fact Magazine.

Closing the EP is a recorded live rendition of ‘Hot As You Want’ and a Solomon Grey-sung live cover of ‘Loving You’, both taken from an intimate Lane 8 live show at Peckham Liberal Club in London.

Lane 8 – Midnight


Here’s the title track of Lane 8’s upcoming Suara EP, called “Midnight”.

Although Daniel Goldstein has been releasing most of his music on Anjunadeep thus far, he’s moving towards a more instrumental, clubby sound in his productions as of late and as such, his new EP is landing on Coyu’s Suara.

The title track is a long instrumental based around a very simple piano sequence. He first started jamming around with this idea back in March 2015 and fine-tuned it over the rest of last year. Out on January 18.

Maribou State – Wallflower (Lane 8 Remix)


UK duo Chris Davids and Liam Ivory aka Maribou State released their debut album ‘Portraits’ earlier this summer to widespread international acclaim. Also fresh from a debut album is Anjunadeep’s Daniel Goldstein, better known as Lane 8, whose own album ‘Rise’ was “packed full of beautiful melodies and left-field pop moments” (Mixmag).

After hearing and falling in love with ‘Wallflower’, Daniel got in touch with Maribou State and asked to remix it – and here we present the result, a rolling dancefloor juggernaut layered with anthemic vocals, mournful strings and rumbling brass, rounded off with a huge low end groove.

Walking Shapes – In The Wake (Lane 8 Remix)

lane 8

Acclaimed producer Lane 8, who has just released his new album Rise via Anjunadeep, has remixed track “In The Wake” by New York indie-rock five-piece, Walking Shapes. A poolside disco groover, Lane 8 graces his signature sparkle on the driving original creating a slow-building summer jam that is well worth the final payoff. Listen to the remix below and click here to buy on iTunes.

The original “In The Wake” is taken from the Walking Shapes’s debut album Taka Come On, out now via No Shame | Mishu Music. The Lane 8 remix comes ahead of a further three excellent remixes of Walking Shapes track “Feel Good”, reworked by Jonas LR, FRZN and Z A N D A, which will be released on July 31.

Walking Shapes released the deluxe edition of their debut album Taka Come On earlier this year, recorded with producer Gus Oberg (The Strokes, Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson). Walking Shapes is the living and breathing result of a creative environment centered in a house on Kingsland Avenue in Brooklyn owned by visual artist Joseph Grazi. “People show up and hang out until five in the morning and that energy has swirled into our scene and core group of friends,” says violinist Jesse Kotansky. The band carries forward that kind of collective energy, injecting the spirit of the city’s noises and the souls of its people into their songs, with the resulting frenetic charge and emotional waves feeding back the sound of the city that never sleeps. Walking Shapes are comprised of Nathaniel Hoho (vocals, guitar), Jesse Kotansky (guitar, violin, vocals), Jake Generalli (keys, vocals), Dan Krysa (bass, vocals) and Christopher Heinz (drums).

Lane 8 – Undercover / Loving You


Ahead of his forthcoming debut artist album ‘Rise’, Anjunadeep’s Lane 8 has premiered his collaboration with underground hero Matthew Dear (Ghostly International), entitled ‘Undercover’. Known to techno fans under his legendary Audion guise, musical polymath Matthew Dear here brings his distinctive vocal touch to this dreamy, leftfield pop number.

‘Loving You’ featuring Lulu James is the first track of the album and can also be streamed below.

Featuring collaborations with Lulu James, Solomon Grey and Patrick Baker, and including the singles ‘Diamonds’, ‘Hot As You Want’ and ‘Ghost’, Lane 8’s diverse debut album ‘Rise’ will be released on Anjunadeep on 17 July.

Lane 8 – Ghost feat. Patrick Baker (Remixes)

lane 8

Rising Anjunadeep star Lane 8 announced the release of his debut album in style recently, with the brilliant new single ‘Ghost feat. Patrick Baker‘. On remix duties are a diverse trio of talented producers; techno innovator Audion, Aus Music prodigy Bwana and blogger’s favourite Luvian.

After collaborating with Lane 8 on a track on the upcoming album, Matthew Dear took his notorious Audion guise to remix ‘Ghost’, following remixes for legendary acts like Leftfield, Four Tet, Dubfire and Seth Troxler. Completely twisting the mood of the original, cutting the vocal over a frenetic groove he delivers a gnarly late-night techno cut.

Bwana has marked himself out as one to watch with his excellent EPs on Will Saul’s Aus Music, and his epic take on ‘Ghost’ is another winner, playing off the subtle melodies of the original with a huge bass hook, and Patrick Baker’s evocative lyrics.

UK based Luvian has been bubbling away for a while, with his early tracks picking up millions of plays on YouTube and Soundcloud. He takes his remix away from the club, instead opting for a gorgeous poolside version, stripping back almost entirely to sparse percussion, sensual melodic textures and warped vocals.

An emotional 10-track journey across beautiful melodic instrumentals, leftfield pop moments and quirky electronica, the confident debut album ‘Rise’ (out 17th July on Anjunadeep) represents a bold, bright coming of age for an act who burst onto the scene with a flurry of Hype Machine #1s and stand-out remixes of diverse dance titans like ODESZA, Eric Prydz and Above & Beyond.

Featuring vocal turns from Solomon Grey, Ghostly International’s Matthew Dear and Patrick Baker among others, ‘Rise’ also features standout instrumentals such as the romantic techno vibes of the title track and the Joris Voorn-inspired ‘Klara’ – touching on the DJ sound that has won him so many fans on recent tours.
