Lane 8 releases surprise Ground Hog Day mix

As if his serene seasonal mixtapes weren’t enough of a gift for fans, Lane 8 seems to be in the habit of releasing surprise mixes as of late. In October, the Bay Area progressive house artist unleashes a no-frills Halloween mix. Now, almost half a year later, the This Never Happened boss has given his loyal fanbase a new concept with his Ground Hog Day, a mixtape.

At a time when most Americans would normally be coming out of their winter hibernations, the current state of the world is forcing most to stay indoors. Still, that doesn’t stop Lane 8 from delivering almost three hours of bright, sunny song selections and masterful mixing. Of course, Lane 8 makes sure to include all his favorite producers from K├Âlsch, Four Tet, Moon Boots, Matador, and more.

Soothing and organic, yet highly energetic and upbeat, this is the most progressive we’ve seen from Lane 8 in a while. His landscape is beautifully strewn across a steady beat foundation, complete with hypnotizing energy, colorful textures, long, drawn-out builds, and euphoric payoffs. “Ground Hog Day, a mixtape” is part chill house, part dark tech, and all progressive.
