San Francisco-based house producer Lane 8 made quite a splash when The Magician played his debut single, “Don’t Want You Back”, in the 23rd installment of the wildly popular Magic Tape series in May 2012. The follow-up single, titled "Dusty," surpassed all expectations, racking up diverse DJ support from the UK’s Jody Wisternoff and Kidnap Kid to California’s Viceroy and Goldroom. The rest of 2012 saw Lane 8 releasing a flurry of original songs and remixes for established bands like Snowden and Fenech-Soler, and attracting support from a variety of DJ's including Tensnake and Zimmer. In early 2013, Lane 8 released his most popular single to date, "Every Night", which has been streamed over half a million times on soundcloud and youtube since its release. Moving from strength to strength, Lane 8's record label debut came via London's Anjunadeep imprint with the single "Be Mine". Within a week of release, "Be Mine" hit #1 on hype machine, gained support on BBC Radio 1, was named record of the week on Above & Beyond's radio show, and earned an ever-exclusive spot on the Majestic playlist (his second to date). In the club, Lane 8 has built a reputation for mixing his own energetic productions with private edits of hip hop and funk classics, as well as peppering in exclusive new music in a hybrid live-dj set that is a truly unique experience for the audience.
