Daniel Goldstein, also known as Lane 8, is no stranger to dance floors around the world. His mixture of melody, thump and groove is appetizing to any dance music enthusiast. With “Divina/Crush” Lane 8 stays true to his high level production quality and knack for creating emotional, driving dance tunes. Both tracks, that are on his own This Never Happened imprint, are slow burning, hard hitting, melody soaked bombs that are guaranteed to drive the dance floor wild.

As if that wasn’t enough, Lane 8 has also decided to take on the task of creating a concept party and tour the U.S. in the fall. The concept is simple: no phones on the dance floor. This concept allows the crowd to be in the moment and not distracted by all the temptations of smartphones.

After being tested out in San Francisco, with great success, the party (which shares the name of his label “This Never Happened”) will hit the road for 17 dates featuring extended sets by Lane 8.

Both the EP and the concept tour are examples of the drive and vision of Lane 8. Its both refreshing and inspiring to see an artist take on such a task while still putting out excellent dance music.
