It's been big year for Daniel Goldstein, known by his fans as Lane 8.

Originally from San Francisco, California but based in Leipzig, Germany, Goldstein launched his career in 2012, signing with Anjunadeep a year later. Pete Tong singled him out, calling him a "future star."

The past 12 months have proven to be the manifestation of such high hopes and predictions.

2016 saw Goldstein release his new EP Midnight, as well as the Remixed and Live & In Session accompaniments to his 2015 debut album Rise. He was also tapped by deadmau5 to remix his iconic "Strobe" for the mau5100, a special EP celebrating the label's 100th release.

This year, Goldstein also set out on his landmark This Never Happened tour, a 22-date tour across North America that included sell-out shows LA's Fonda Theatre, New York's Warsaw and Toronto's The Hoxton.

Inspired by the idea of once again facilitating magical dancefloor moments unobstructed from phones recording, snapping photos or updating social media, Goldstein's tour asked fans to enjoy the shows phone-free. Each show, therefore, encouraged fans to live in the moment and connect to the music and the community.

Because nothing from This Never Happened was recorded and shared online, the demand for these sets has been at an all-time high. Goldstein assured fans that this year's annual edition of his annual Winter mixtape will be the next best thing.

“A lot of fans have been asking me on socials for recordings of the This Never Happened sets, which goes against the whole premise of the night… nothing is recorded, photographed or video’d. It’s all about what happens in that room at that moment. So this year’s annual mixtape is perhaps the closest musical experience for those who didn’t get to any of the events. It certainly isn’t a replay of any of the sets, but does include many of the tracks that were special for me across the tour. It was recorded in the last week of the tour. Enjoy.” - Lane 8
