As one of the most truly innovative, versatile, and sought-after producers in all of dance music, it is undeniable that Seven Lions is on an exponential rise to international prestige. By garnering the attention of some of the world’s most prolific and well-respected artists such as Above & Beyond, Paul van Dyk, Skrillex, and Ellie Goulding, among others, it is clear that his powerfully emotive, visionary brand of bass-driven electronica has broken through the status quo to unveil a rare, one-of-a-kind musical experience. With his sheer technical prowess in the studio and behind the decks, Seven Lions brings new meaning to the art of music production and performance with his masterful, intricate and imaginative compositions and live sets that shed light on his deeply impassioned motivations as a true artist. Seemingly ahead of his time, he will only continue to harness his infinite potential as a producer/DJ and further establish himself in a vanguard of his own.
In his early years as a metal and punk-inclined drummer with a fierce tenacity for success, Santa Barbara, California’s Jeff Montalvo, the mastermind behind Seven Lions, decided to take matters into his own hands, rather than waiting on his band mates. After a friend gave him the production program Fruity loops, it was history. Montalvo was set on an auspicious path to revamp the dance music industry as we know it - not as a drummer, but as a producer.
With soulful, deep, hybridized creations - at times majestic, at others pulverizing - all distinctly his own, the 26-year-old multi-talented musician is single-handedly changing the sonic landscape for future generations to come by bridging the gap between the soaring, ethereal vibe of trance and intensely adrenalizing bass music. His breakout, contest-winning remix of Above & Beyond’s “You Got To Go” served as his remarkable introduction to the dance music world. As the track sat at #2 on Beatport’s Dubstep chart for over 6 weeks, second only to Skrillex’s remix of “Levels” which received hundreds of thousands of listens on YouTube, it was obvious that something particularly phenomenal was imminent for Montalvo.
