Lane 8 “Little By Little” Album & Tour Dates

Denver-based artist Lane 8, aka, Daniel Goldstein, just released his second album, Little By Little, this January on his own This Never Happened label. Ever since it’s release, the album has been on repeat at Stop Breathe Bump headquarters. It’s deep house at it’s absolute finest. Between the beautiful melodic instrumentals and standout vocals — the album is an instant classic that takes you on a mesmerizing aural journey. The new LP was accompanied by an extensive 35-date global headlining tour, with stops in North America, Australia, and Europe.

Lane 8 on Little By Little:

I think that writing and releasing my first album, Rise, so early in the Lane 8 project, was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. But at the time, I felt like albums were really on the out. A lot of people within the music industry said albums were a waste of time and effort – nobody listened to them anymore. Especially not from relatively new, relatively low profile artists! Most artists within dance music were releasing single after single every few months – and having a lot of success with that formula.

Maybe it’s because I grew up on albums, but I’ve always felt that a good album tells a story and creates an experience that is impossible to replicate with a run of single tracks alone – no matter how good they are.

When I listened to my favorite albums as a kid, one of the things I loved the most was entering the artist’s world – even if just for an hour, it felt like I was being taken on a unique journey that could really be savored, a journey only the artist could take me on. The experience of listening to a great album gave me a connection to my favorite artists that I never would have had just listened to their hits.

With that somewhat romantic (or just outdated!) feeling toward albums in mind, I ignored a lot of the advice out there and pushed forward – and Rise came out soon after. When I toured that album, I had the surreal experience of hearing fans tell me what the album meant to them, and how much of a connection they felt to the journey of Rise – that familiar feeling I remember from my own youth.

Over the past two years, I’ve waited for a certain feeling to return – the feeling that I was ready and excited to do it all over again. As it happened, at the end of 2016, we finished an incredible first This Never Happened tour shortly before welcoming our daughter into the world. As 2017 began, I found myself really driven to create album #2. Throughout this year, I found a lot of joy in focusing on each little task achieved, each small accomplishment that pushed me one step closer to the goal of making another album – another experience – that I was really proud of. In a way, I think that’s what this album is all about – taking the time to appreciate each small step in a larger journey.

I’m really happy to announce that the pieces have now come together to form my second album, Little By Little.

“No Captain”, a song I made with Poliça, is the first piece of music I’m sharing from Little By Little – and it’s available to stream and download now. Hope you enjoy it.

I will be touring Little By Little across North America, Europe, and Australia for the first half of next year. Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 9 am local time.

You can listen to “No Captain” and see tour dates here.

Love,

Daniel

Ultra Music Festival 2018. Miami, FL. March 23-25

There is just something special about Miami at the end of March. Every year the masses converge on this sweltering city to celebrate dance music in what has been dubbed “Miami Music Week”. The parties start early and often at every club, hotel pool and parking lot, turning each into its own little slice of electronic heaven. Whether you’re into trance or dubstep, big room or minimal, Miami remains the mecca of everything EDM. The landscape now seems saturated with festivals from the hallowed grounds of Woodstock to the massive soccer stadiums in Europe and everywhere in between. But one thing remains the same, Miami Music Week, culminating with Ultra Music Festival, is still THE place to celebrate the music we love.

[EVENT REVIEW] Anjunabeats New York 1/27/18

Last Saturday we had the pleasure of joining our Anjuna family at Barclay Center for Above and Beyond’s Common Ground tour stop in Brooklyn, NY.  With support from the brilliant Yotto, and legendary Andrew Bayer, this was one of our favorite Above and Beyond shows of all time.

Barclays is an incredible venue, and they don’t oversell the floor so there is plenty of room for dancing.  With a beautiful mix of old and new monster tracks, the ground exploded with one of the best dance parties we’ve experienced.  It’s always an amazing crowd at Above and Beyond shows, and this was no exception.  We can’t express how much we love the new album, Common Ground.  Some of our favorite new tracks off the album are “Naked”, “Cold Feet”, and “Sahara Love”.  In true A&B fashion, all the lyrics are meaningful and the beats are triumphant (regardless of whether or not the lyrics are happy or sad).  There is power in positivity, and A&B has an abundance of this force.  Oh yea, and did we mention that they brought just a FEW lasers to the occasion?!

The after party was at Schimanski, with Andrew Bayer and Spencer Brown as our guides for the late night/early morning fun.  We danced deep into the night to some of the grooviest tracks.  The club was packed, and everyone had a smile on their face.

Thank you, Anjunabeats, for an enchanting evening with our Anjuna Amigos.  We will be counting down the days for your return to the City That Never Sleeps.

[Review] Above & Beyond @ Los Angeles Convention Center (12/29)

 

I have always made the argument that electronic dance music producers (great ones, anyway) are our modern-day classical composers. The production of a piece from start to finish, whether on a laptop or scribbled on staff paper, requires an amazing amount of musicality and technical knowledge. Translating the emotion of a song to an audience requires innate talent and large amount of passion for the music. Above & Beyond have always hypnotized us with their message and emotional transparency, and wear their hearts on their sleeves both in their studio productions and live performances.

The show was truly special and we are always so impressed with the loyalty of the fans. People of all ages, colors, backgrounds, all coming together for a night of great music.  Anjuna must be one of the strongest families in the dance music world. The emotional grip that the lyrics and sounds have on Above & Beyond fans everywhere was apparent in the tears and palpable joy emitting from the convention center.

After seeing them perform several acoustic shows across the Country, we gained even more respect for them. They truly go Above & Beyond our expectations. See you at the next show <3

Insomniac Presents Above & Beyond @ Los Angeles Convention Center on Friday, December 29

“For one night, the Los Angeles Convention Center becomes our Common Ground: a place for us to enjoy the music we love, together. This is the kick-off to our album tour and is our first solo LA show since the Hollywood Bowl. We’re very excited to be playing at one of the biggest all GA venues in LA for the first time and hope to see you on the dance floor!” – Above & Beyond
