Northern Nights Highlight: Lane 8
Northern Night Music Festival is set to take place again this year from July 17-19, 2015 and its coming back with a great lineup including Autograf, Gold Link, G Jones, Gold Panda, and many more. All the great artists have the unique forest environment of Cook’s Valley Campground and Northern Nights organizers have an emphasis sustainability. This summer festival should be one to be remembered and one man on the lineup should not be missed: Lane 8.
San Francisco based house producer Lane 8 is one of the headlining acts at this years Northern Nights Music Festival. Lane 8 got his start when his debut single “Don’t Want You Back” got played on The Magician’s Magic Tape in 2012. His next single “Dusty” was played by the likes of Jody Wisternoff, Kidnap Kid, Geisha Twins, and many more. After that his EP and many of his remixes were all gaining lots of airplay. He just put out a new spring mixtape and his debut album should be nearing completion. Lane 8 had his very own solo tour back in the summer of 2014 and he just wrapped up touring with Above & Beyond for the first half of their “We Are All We Need” tour as an opening act.
Lane 8’s sound could be described as much more mellow than the club driven and bass heavy club house or future house that has been popular lately. Lane 8 is currently and the Anjunadeep label which is known for having much more mellow or emotional feel to it. However, do not fear that his set would be boring because of his style. On the contrary, Lane 8’s sets in the past have had a very nice pace and balance of mellow to danceable tracks. If you are heading to Northern Nights this year, Lane 8 is definitely a guy not to miss. Be sure to check out his music on Soundcloud and its always good to support your favorite artists with a like on Facebook.
