Trance purists may turn their noses at the addition of Seven Lions (real name Jeff Montalvo) as he specializes in melodic dubstep. His trance credentials ought to speak for themselves, however. In addition to his longstanding relationship with Above & Beyond and Anjunabeats, he's been known to occasionally incorporate psytrance into his sets.
