Seven Lions & Above & Beyond go way back. Jeff Montalvo aka Seven Lions has been associated with the trance legends since 2011 when he won the official remix competition for A&B’s “You Got To Go”. He later remixed the trio’s classic “On My Way To Heaven” And now he returns with a stunning remix for “Sahara Love” which features Zoë Johnston on vocal duty.
Coming to the remix itself, when I heard it the first time I sorta just went… wow. His ability to transform a tune into his own while still retaining the essence and feel of the original is amazing. Whereas the original is a beautifully crafted heartwarming trance track with a superb guitar riff in it, Seven lions transforms it into an amazing melodic dubstep track. The superb sound design, euphoric drop, stripped down intro & Zoë Johnson beautiful voice transport the listener into a whole new dimension. Instant fan favourite? Instant fan favourite.
Apart from crafting mind-blowing remixes, Seven Lions has a busy month ahead of him. As he’s playing at Insomniac’s Beyond Wonderland on March 23. And if you happen to be heading down to Miami Music Week catch him and Above & Beyond at their RC Cola Plant takeover on the 28th. Tickets for the RC Cola show are still available so get them while you can here!
