Lane 8 – Midnight
A new track from Lane 8. To be honest, I wasn’t sure we’d have more from him. His association with Anjunadeep was taking him to styles and vocalists that aren’t really this blog’s thing. But here’s a track from his new Suara EP not destined for Anjunadeep but Coyu. And right good it is too.
Lane 8 says it’s more clubby and “I’m moving towards a more instrumental, clubby sound in my productions as of late and as such, my new EP is landing on Coyu’s Suara.” Perhaps, but it still works brilliantly in my kitchen as the sun comes up. It still has that wonderful sense of smooth composition and emotional core. For something billed as clubby, it’s not the beats that drive this (except in a sense of having an uplifting vibe) it’s the slightly melancholic piano synth stabs. It tempers club hedonism with an awareness of the outside world. It’s out now.
