How do you tell a new season has begun? Equinoxes and solstices? Leaves turning red, snow falling, flowers blooming, or the sun scorching? Well, if you’re a fan of Lane 8, there’s no better sign than the arrival of his seasonal mixtapes, a staple since 2013.

The Colorado-based producer just released his "Summer 2021 Mixtape," a 61 track house and techno exploration—including 22 IDs—clocking in at just over four hours.

The mix starts relaxed and melodic, with sultry songs from Massane and a couple of remixes from Gui Boratto. A growling remix from Kasper Koman takes listeners into darker, deeper territory before Lane 8 leads the soundscape into melody-driven, dance-focused tracks. This ebb and flow between powerful, driving synths and soft, progressive melodies continues over the course of the mix, as Lane 8 adeptly charges forward through the mix.
