We are officially only a few days away from the highly anticipated release of Lane 8’s third album, Brightest Lights. And what better way to ease you into it than with the release of his latest transient melodic house piece. Marking the sixth release following “Yard Two Stone” and “The Gift,” “Just” continues to set the tone for an effortlessly breathtaking production we are soon to receive from the deeply sedative producer we like to call Lane 8. The track radiates a pure ambient house tempo over toned with buzzing synths and vocals all while wrapping you up in a background of soothing pitches. Spanning five minutes, this track is “Just” enough to tide you over until the release of his album. Out now on his own, This Never Happened, listen below.
Lane 8 spoke of the track via Twitter talking about his humble beginnings to the culmination of his wildly emotive career. He says, “That’s where ‘Just’ comes from. This is kinda dumb but when I was putting this song together I was reflecting on another moment of pure childhood joy: trading baseball cards with my friends during summer break. The original demo was called ‘David Justice’ because I remember having about 60 of his baseball cards back in the day and it was the original concept for the song. ‘David Justice’ turned into ‘Justice’ which turned into ‘Just,’ but ultimately the song reflects that joy of getting deeply into whatever it is that makes you tick, whether that’s baseball cards or making music I think the feeling is the same. I hope you all enjoy it!!”
