Above & Past‘s milestone ABGT reside performances are usually not overseas to many within the digital music world. And neither is the trio’s label, Anjunabeats. The label, and the reveals, have opened the door for a lot of producer’s careers like Audien, Lane 8, Oliver Smith, and Tritonal.
Again in 2011, Seven Lions (Jeff Montalvo) bursted into the scene together with his remix of Above & Past’s ‘You Received To Go’. The remix caught the ears of the legendary producers and, as you now know, the whole lot that got here from that monitor for Jeff modified his life for the higher.

The 2 shocked the world by going B2B at ABGT’s 250 milestone present at The Gorge in Washington. Each of their sounds flowed supremely properly collectively. Whereas there, they debuted their first collaboration, ‘Ocean‘, that includes Johnathan Mendelsohn. Proper then and there, their friendship was solidified. Jason nonetheless launched on Anjunabeats but in addition signed with Jeff on his new label, Ophelia. After many monitor releases, Jason’s proving himself as an artist on Ophelia simply as a lot as he did on Anjunabeats.
1000 Faces – Observe Critiques
Now, right here’s the great half. Let’s get to this debut album, 1000 Faces, which debuted right now.
The 10 tracks circulation easily collectively. The straightforward sounds of ‘Intro‘, which may be heard all through the album, welcomes the listener so rigorously. ‘When The Evening Falls‘, with singer Fiora, integrates the melodic dubstep sound that Seven Lions helped affect. Fiora can also be no stranger to Ophelia. Her delicate and touching voice is unquestionably going to have the viewers singing alongside.
The album additionally includes a monitor, ‘One That Received Away‘, with fellow producer Dabin. For this tune, Dylan Matthews lends his infamous voice to the tear-jerking lyrics about love, change, and ache. ‘Chains‘ with Røry, who lends her voice to many different artists, picks up the tempo halfway via the album. ‘Shelter‘, which was launched in Could of 2019, has cracked over 1 hundreds of thousands streams on Spotify that encompasses and completely continues to impress.
The tempo slows with Fiora in ‘Go away Me To Surprise‘ that has an angelic circulation to it. Jeff, Seven Lions, contributes to ‘Recognized You Earlier than‘ which the 2 debuted way back and has been performed in every producer’s units for fairly a while. Jeff’s signature sounds are heard all through the refrain and gives an simple beat. Singer Dia Frampton on ‘1000 Faces‘ and RUNN finishes the gathering out with ‘Letting Go‘. I like to recommend wanting up the lyrics whereas listening to this ending monitor. It’s a monitor we are able to all relate to with love and saying goodbye.
