THE PLAYGROUND launches their next event at Electric Brixton on Friday 12th May featuring a rare performance from Owsla Records veteran Seven Lions and the debut UK performance from Flume remixer and breakthrough artist of 2016, Illenium.
SEVEN LIONS- After several successful releases under the OWSLA label (his debut EP, Days to Come, reached #2 on the iTunes Dance charts), Montalvo released his highly anticipated 2014 follow-up EP, Worlds Apart, on Republic Records' dance imprint Casablanca. Containing several notable features which include Ellie Goulding and Tove Lo, Worlds Apart debuted at #1 on the iTunes Dance charts, and the title track was also featured in Billboard's "Top 10 Electronic/Dance Songs of 2014" list. Even with the release of his fan-controversial single, "Lucy", Seven Lions continues to receive high praise from notable EDM publications glorifying his itch to avoid creative stagnation. According to Billboard, Montalvo "continues to champion [dubstep's] melodic potential" and Dancing Astronaut, while acknowledging that "Lucy" was a significant departure from his previous sound, praised the track as "a potent crossover track that is destined to go over well in trance and big room sets alike".
ILLENIUM has garnered previous support from the likes of Billboard, Dancing Astronaut, Mr. Suicide Sheep, YourEDM and many others. In addition to selling out his debut headlining tour, ILLENIUM has appeared at Lollapalooza, Mysteryland, Summer Set Music Festival, Paradiso, Decadence performing alongside Bassnectar, Jack U, Deadmau5, Tiesto and many more. ILLENIUM has earned himself a No. 1 spot on the iTunes Electronic Album Chart in USA, Canada, UK, a No. 6 on the Electronic Albums Billboard Chart for his debut artist album "ASHES'' and was a 'Trending Artist' on Billboard three times for 'It's All On You,' 'Fortress' and 'Sleepwalker'.
ILLENIUM's remix of Flume's "Say It (feat. Tove Lo)" has reached over 13 million views on Youtube whilst his remix of The Chainsmokers' "Don't Let Me Down" has racked up over 200 million streams on Spotify, Soundcloud, Xkito and Trap Nation. 'Ashes Remixes' feature an incredible list of currently thriving artists including Synchronice, Just A Gent, Crystal Skies, Virtu, K?d, Ryan Exley, William Black, Kill Paris, FURY, Dabin, Hazey Eyes, Ryan Exley, it's Different, T-Mass & LZRD and Mr. FijiWiji.
