Another season down, another gut-wrenching seasonal mixtape. Like clockwork, Lane 8 now releases his newest Fall 2020 Mixtape a week into the cool-off season. A cool down is exactly what the masses need right now, too, as we attempt to put the scorching summer, COVID-19 spikes, and political disinformation campaigns behind us before heading to the polls in a month. That’s precisely what the This Never Happened boss is attempting to do on the mix as well, with nearly four hours of energizing beats to get listeners lost in his world of melodic piety and sublime curation.
While his Summer 2020 Mixtape came in as warm and lackadaisical, Lane 8 really ramps things up a notch on the progressive numbers. The newest seasonal journey provides a seamless transition from summer to autumn with heavier house tunes signifying the shift in colder weather and grounding thought patterns. With inclusions from Ivory, Tinklicker and Helsloot, Sultan + Shepard, ATTLAS, Le Youth, Kölsh, Ben Böhmer, and more, all of Lane 8’s favorites come to bat on the Fall 2020 mix.
Additional remixes from Tom Demac, Rampa, Jonas Rathsman, and a beautiful a capella from Dua Lipa make for a strong mix bent on creative exploration and self-discovery. Or course, Goldstein is sure to end the mix with a spotlight selection from his recently released Brightest Lights Remixed, specifically GEOTHEORY‘s remix of “The Rope.” View the entire tracklist here.
Fall is the time for rooting, slowing down, and reflecting. All the seeds of adventure that were planted over the summer are ready for the autumn harvest and this mixtape provides the ideal soundscape for a truly eidfying inner transition to take place.
