Jeff Montalvo is straight killin’ it lately. The Santa Barbara-based producer, who goes by Seven Lions, is on the prowl for some big game. With each track, Montalvo unleashes an arsenal of captivating soundscapes. First it was originals “Deep Divide” and “Luna,” then remixes of Oceanlab’s “Satellite” and Above & Beyond’s “You Got to Go,” which caught the attention of the trio and their label, Anjunabeats. Now comes a taser shock remix that takes on the immersive track, “Cosmic Love,” by Florence + the Machine.
Seven Lions flips the already incredible song upside down, and then bites it in half. Montalvo leaves Florence’s vocals untouched to retain the feel of her emotive lyrics, yet rips the beat to shreds with his signature sounds leaving just the mesmerizing piano chords that pave the way. The drop is nothing short of an eruption of sonic spatter.
Tune in, turn up your speakers, and let the sweet sounds of Seven Lions take you far, far away on a safari in the neon Serengeti.
