Seven Lions and Blastoyz reunite for their second collab “Reason For Fighting”.
Since its live debut in 2020, the track has become one of the most highly anticipated releases on the label and follows their latest collab “After Dark” off Seven Lions’ Start Again EP. Featuring three powerful drops, “Reason For Fighting” weaves through psytrance and melodic bass to blur the lines between a mainstage anthem and underground heavy-hitter with triumphant vocals from ERV ELLO. From Ultra Music Festival to EDC Mexico, the track has marked showstopping moments at festivals around the country over the past few months. Most recently, Seven Lions and Blastoyz reunited on Beyond Wonderland’s mainstage to showcase the track one last time before its release.
Washington-based producer Seven Lions has never had an issue pushing the boundaries of electronic music to fulfill his creative vision. Catching a break after winning a Beatport remix contest in 2012 with his dubstep-focused version of Above & Beyond’s “You Got To Go”, Seven Lions, born Jeff Montalvo, garnered support from the likes of Anjunabeats, Casablanca, OWSLA, Viper Recordings, Republic Records, and Monstercat over the past ten years. After releasing on a plethora of labels, Seven Lions founded Ophelia Records in 2018 which has since become a leading independent label in the melodic bass subgenre. Since its emergence only four years ago, the label has already made an imprint in the dance music scene having been voted Dancing Astronaut’s Label Of The Year in 2021, releasing multiple #1 iTunes Dance albums and hosting festival stage takeovers and showcases around the country. Seven Lions’ productions have seen stages at world-renowned festivals including Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Electric Zoo, and HARD. Later this year, he’ll be playing shows at Forbidden Kingdom, Escapade Music Festival, Project Glow and more.
Israeli DJ, musician and producer Kobi Nigreker, better known as Blastoyz, has cemented himself as one of the leading artists in the psytrance scene over the past few years. His uplifting production and hypnotizing basslines have landed him on labels such as Armada Music, Iboga Records, Spinnin’ and Dreamstate with support from the likes of Armin van Buuren, Gareth Emery, Hardwell, Will Sparks and more. With a steady presence on Beatport’s top charts and millions of streams worldwide, Blastoyz has accumulated a dedicated international fanbase with no signs of slowing down. Throughout his career, he’s collaborated with artists such as Vini Vici, Skazi and Seven Lions with major performances under his belt at festivals like Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Zoo, and EDC Las Vegas. Blastoyz also recently launched his own independent label ‘WELVRAVE’ in partnership with Create Music Group.
