Lane 8 is already pursuing back-to-back seats at Dancing Astronaut‘s Artist of the Year table. Our 2020 Artist of the Year put the finishing touches on an overflowing, 12-month bid of musical feats with his fourth and final seasonal mixtape in mid-December, and after a well-deserved holiday intermission, Lane 8 is now making his presence in 2021 known with his first original of the new year, “Oh, Miles” with Julia Church.
The open-armed introduction to the This Never Happened king’s “Winter 2020 Mixtape” was just one of an untold count of IDs in the two-and-a-half-hour marathon, but it potentially serves as the mix’s sole unreleased crown jewel. Arriving just days after the one-year commemoration of Brightest Lights, “Oh, Miles” is good cause for our “Winter 2020 Mixtape” listening session taking much longer than it should’ve, considering it was nearly impossible to make it past the endeavor’s opening minutes without stopping to rewind. Coupling Church’s chilling verses with Lane 8’s empyreal production echelon, the tie-up makes an admirable bid as one of Lane 8’s finest as it provides an encouraging beginning to 2021.
