Seven Lions has definitely been one the most impressive up and comers I’ve seen in the bass scene the past few months. So it’s not much of a surprise that the California producer got nabbed up pretty quickly for a record release by the folks over at OWSLA. However, this new release, the Days to Come EP, shows a side of Seven Lions that I have yet to be introduced to. While the release is certainly still solid, I was ultimately disappointed with the over presence of influence of electro house on the tracks. I prefer the dubstep that this man producers, but admittedly, it’s good to see artists trying new things, and in fairness, there is still a clear representation of dubstep as well. That being said, the final track, “She Was” shows a glitch-hop element that is absolutely mind-blowing (and dare I say, reminds me somewhat of Tipper?) That might be a bold statement, but nonetheless, it’s easily my favorite and the most unique track off this release. You can stream the full thing below completely free for your listening pleasure! Enjoy!
