Lane 8 disperses full ‘Cross Pollination’ project through final venture with Massane [Stream]
Descriptions that would properly depict the high level of consistency from Lane 8 in 2020 are few and far in between. After introducing his third full-length effort at the top of the calendar year, the This Never Happened director has made good on his pledge of weekly label releases, issuing a steady line of one-offs, collaborations, and two seasonal issuances of his always-worthy mixtapes. Following a reunion with Yotto at August’s midpoint, the candidate for “producer of the year” is now returning to submit his flawlessly branded Cross Pollination project with “And We Knew It Was Our Time,” produced alongside Massane.
Joining six other collaborative counterparts previously delivered throughout the year, “And We Knew It Was Our Time” is as a masterful culmination to the Cross Pollination release cycle that initially provided the entrance to Lane 8’s “Summer 2020 Mixtape.” Standing at a towering nine-and-a-half minutes, Lane 8 and Massane’s effort guides a galvanizing end-of-summer expedition, eliciting reminiscence of deadmau5‘s “Strobe” with its outstretched progression and radiant library of synths.
