MUST LISTEN: Seven Lions unveils highly-anticipated ‘Start Again’ EP on his own imprint, Ophelia
Seven Lions has been an EP releasing machine this summer. The melodic bass icon released his Oceans remix pack in June, followed by a recent string of release in “Dreamin’” and “After Dark.” Now Jeff Montalvo, the man behind the moniker, returns with the final two tracks to round out his 4-track Start Again EP, out now on his very own Ophelia Records.
Every track on the EP features the eloquent vocalist Fiora, along with one entralling psytrance collaboration with Israeli producer Blastoyz. The two new song additions spotlight Montalvo’s captivating waves of melodic chords and endearing drops, all while encompassing Seven Lion’s signature euphoric sounds. While “Start Again” is trance-driven production that the producer has been fond of lately, “Let Go” is a step away from the Seven Lions style in it’s showcasing of a four-to-the-floor, house-like rhythm not yet explored by the producer — until now.
To top off his newest productions, Seven Lions is embarking on a 43-date North American bus tour, dubbed “The Journey 2,” in late September. Joining him on tour will be dubstep standout MitiS, Anjunabeats mainstay Jason Ross, and scene newcomer Dabin.
