Afters witnessing immense success surrounding his “This Never Happened” show concept, Lane 8 is building a world of his own. This week, he’s surprised with fans not only with three newly introduced show dates, but also with the announcement of a soul-searching number, titled “Little Voices.”
“Littles Voices” is void of complexity and finds strength in its simplicity. It only takes one listen to realize the beauty surrounding the song; the vivid chords atop meditative percussion create the ideal undercurrent for spectral vocal samples to weave in and out the track. The six and a half minute journey also emits a gorgeous feeling of nostalgia paired with effervescence, giving listeners the chance to experience sensations of clarity and feeling present.
Lane 8’s 2016 “This Never Happened” tour outlined similar sensibilities. For each show, the artist enforced a strict “no phones/no cameras” policy, urging fans to deviate from using their devices during the performance and give themselves the opportunity to live in a moment without distractions from technology and social media. The run of shows was so successful that Lane 8 is now expanding his concept by lengthening the performances and finding unique spaces to put his project in motion.
Lane 8 had this to say about the shows:
“The response to our This Never Happened tour last year completely blew me away. The shows were among my favorite club experiences ever – and to see you all embrace the concept and make those shows so incredible was one of the proudest moments of my career. I truly feel that we developed a connection with music and each other that needs to be built upon and nurtured.”
I’ve had a little dream of doing a series of extended daytime events since we launched the TNH concept. So, this summer, we are excited to bring TNH back, with a twist, for the Summer Gatherings – three extended daytime parties in three unique locations with an extra focus on positivity, character and atmosphere.
I’ve always felt there’s a special magic that comes together at the best daytime events, so my team and I have been searching high and low for locations that have that unique and positive vibe. I’m really excited to announce the first three – the stunning outdoor Mishawaka Amphitheatre in Colorado, the outdoor courtyard of The Well in Brooklyn and an amazing warehouse space in San Francisco.
Each has its own unique character and vibe, and we’ll be putting in extra touches to make the events even more special.
We’re also changing the format of the events to create a more expanded musical journey. I’ll start each of these shows with a 2 hour warmup set – then our special guest Luttrell will take over, before a 3 hour closing set from me.
I also wanted to share some new music as we announce these shows – and Little Voices was made with exactly this kind of show in mind. I’ve been closing a lot of my sets with this recently, hope you enjoy and hope to see you this summer :)”
