Summer is associated with abundance, fulfillment, and happiness. The northern hemisphere has just passed the soltice, and as the sun moved north over the celestial equator, the summer heat brings a feeling of languidness. We give ourselves permission to be a little lazy. It is the season of summer vacations. It is also the season for Lane 8‘s summer mixtape, a lackadaisical journey through warm textures, soothing indietronica touches, organic instrumentation, and hints of deep and progressive house.
Throughout the expansive four-hour listening journey, Lane 8 makes sure to orchestrate a mixtape that encourages listeners to relax, slow down, celebrate, and loosen up. Along the way, he once again captures the full ethos of summertime bliss in a time capsule. He also includes some relevant titles to capture the reason for the season with Calvin Harris’ “Disco Heat,” TInklicker’s “Sleepwalker,” AMTRAC’s “Odyssey,” Motez and Qrion’s “Slow Down,” Le Youth’s remix of Lane 8 and POLIÇA‘s “The Rope,” and so much more.
