Lane 8 introduces the new year with his annual Winter Mixtape. This one is a stunning mix of just over three hours and is the perfect way to captivate the snowy winter vibes. It features about 50 tracks with several unknown IDs. Fans of his look forward to these mixtapes that happen every season. He features several albums and labels as well from his This Never Happened, Rose Avenue by Rufus Du Sol, Anjunadeep, Enhanced, and more.
Firstly, he starts with ‘Survive’ and transitions into MRAK’s ‘One’ from Afterlife. The tone is set, deep and brooding but emotional and powerful. Next, gentle melodies coddle you while your ears are swaddled with angelic notes. Thirdly, you go through ‘Watermelon Wormhole’, ‘Monday Mood’ by Maya Jane Coles, ‘Polaris’, ‘Rosewood’ by Bonobo, the tracks subtly progress to more tech elements. Let’s appreciate the smooth transitions throughout this as well. He never fails to deliver the best in music through these tapes.
You’ll find Qrion, andhim, Sultan + Shepard, ARTBAT, Paul Thomas, Milky Chance, Monkey Safari, and various other artists of the same soundscape. Concluding with ‘Illuminate’, your journey concludes for the time being but the year is only just beginning. Let this mixtape be the start of something new for 2022 as we look forward to Dan’s Reviver tour this season. You can see his stops along the way below. Whether you stay inside, hit the snow-capped mountains for some snowboarding/skiing fun, or want to discover new music, take a listen to this.
