“One of the things I love most about being a parent is rediscovering the world through the eyes of a child. realizing and appreciating the magic all around us, those things that too often fade into the distance in the whirlwind of “normal” life. this song came about in an attempt to capture that curious energy that I find so inspiring.” -Lane 8

These are the words from Daniel Goldstein on Instagram, better known by his stage name Lane 8. ‘Is This Our Earth’ encapsulates these sentiments perfectly. With its sonic percussion sounds and frequency shuffling production, the song starts softly only to turn into a full-blown floor filler.

The Deep House influences are very clear. It’s slow and spaced out, almost lagging to the listener on first listen. It’s no wonder the song was released on the Anjunadeep label, Above & Beyond’s home for everything Deep House. As the track builds, different components enter the mix to transcend the magical feeling Lane 8 describes in his aforementioned quote about the song.

The lyrical break is quick, but not brief enough that it allows listeners to get hooked and quickly replay the track just to hear the catchy lines. These brief shifts are a theme of the track as the tone and frequency of the bouncy riffs build and fluctuate in a unique and beautiful way.

The Trance feel mixed with more conventional House bass combine to form the distinct Lane 8 sounds his fans have come to love in previous hits like ‘Run’, ‘Road’, and ‘The Rope’ as well as his plethora of ethereal mixtapes.

Give the new track a listen below and let us know if you experience that childlike wonder the artist hopes to give you – we know it did for us!
