EDITORS’ NOTES

Dubstep, trance, and pop collide on producer Seven Lions' Worlds Apart EP, and the results are as forceful as a punch to the gut and as light as a dandelion tuft on the wind. While instrumental "Nepenthe" winds its way through parade snares, chainsaw bass riffs, and shimmering progressive house, the vocal cuts really show off his range. Ellie Goulding's breathy voice is the perfect foil for the chimes and soaring climax of "Don't Leave," while Tove Lo flies like a silver bullet through fizzy synths and side-chained pulses on "Strangers."

Seven lions is the best Dup artist out there right now. I've been waiting for this release. It's been well worth the wait, Ellie Goulding being on the album is a spectacular surprise, and "Don't Leave" has to be my favorite song on the album right now. I'm in awe, thank you for your musical genius.

About Seven Lions

Melding mainstream pop, trance, and dubstep, California producer Jeff Montalvo quickly amassed a cult following under the alias Seven Lions. The onetime drummer transitioned to music production in 2007, and shortly thereafter he won a competition held by the trance act Above & Beyond by remixing their song "You Got to Go." Success snowballed. At 25 years old, his debut EP, Days to Come, was mentioned on Vibe's Top Electronic Albums list of 2012, and later that year he gained attention internationally when his music picked up regular rotation on BBC's Radio 1. A second EP, Polarize, was released by Viper Recordings in April of 2013. He moved to the Casablanca label and a year later the Worlds Apart EP hit number two on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, also landing on the Billboard 200. Continuing a slowly growing emphasis on song form, The Throes of Winter returned him to both charts in 2015 and topped the Heatseekers Albums chart. In 2017, the Creation EP became his first Billboard dance/electronic number one. ~ Jason Lymangrover & Marcy Donelson
