Tuesday is usually a sleeper day, but numerous producers decided that they just couldn’t wait till Friday to drop their newest singles. As a result, we have new progressive trance, deep house, and a whole new sub-genre from Flume.
The first single coming in hot this week was from Lane 8. The Anjunadeep graduate now spearheads his own label, This Never Happened. On September 24 Lane 8 released the title track from his January 2020 album Brightest Lights.
The first thing that struck us about Brightest Lights was Lane 8’s powerful lyrics.
“With our brightest light // Stars will gather round // Just to be with you // Love’s loudest sound.”
We can’t wait to sing these lyrics at an upcoming Lane 8 show! Fans from the Pacific NW will have three opportunities to catch Lane 8 on the Brightest Lights tour. Portland is February 20, then Seattle on Friday the 21 and finally Vancouver February 22.
so excited to hit the road for these shows and play new music for you all!!

Next Above & Beyond released a song that was first played at our very own Gorge Amphitheater in 2017. Yes, that’s right the opening track from Above & Beyond’s ABGT 250 set has finally been unleashed.
Hideaway has been available on Anjunabeats Volume 14 since late May, but only as a mixed track. Now we have the full 7 minutes and 52 seconds. There is also a 4 minute and 20-second version but a lot of key elements are missing.
What is special about this song is the memory it evokes. Hideaway brings us right back to our home, The Gorge Amphitheater. Luckily since ABGT 250 was recorded people who weren’t at the event can experience the same nostalgia feels from Hideaway.
Finally, Flume surprised everyone by randomly dropping another new single. In total since the divine Hi This Is Flume (Mixtape) Flume has set free four new songs. Friends, Let you Know, Quits, and the topic of discussion Rushing Back. Despite this, the Australian producer has not confirmed any rumors about an upcoming album.
Rushing Back was crafted with fantastic lyrics. While the instrumental section sounds a lot like some of the experimental pieces from Hi This Is Flume (Mixtape). This could be the highest energy song in this article! There are so many details to be discovered in Rushing Back, it is certainly a journey.
Firstly there are numerous segments. Beginning with a verse from Vera Blue while Flume steps back. Until the drop, when the lyrics and instrumentation merge. “And it all comes rushing back // Rushing back.” Where Flume bounces back between lyrics and a nasty drop. Rushing Back ends with a strong final verse, a cheerful ending. Flume takes charge again.
