Shadows only exist in the light, and Lane 8 just pulled the sunshine out of Virtual Self’s dark house brooder “Ghost Voices.” It’s the most influential track from the Porter Robinson side project. It’s been a popular tune to rework, but this may be our favorite as the Denver producer breathes entirely new life into its familiar mood without losing its essential character.
“Ghost Voices,” the original, is haunting and ethereal, a pulsing, neon light in a dark and smoky room. Lane 8’s version is what plays when the sun rises to clear the smoke away. It’s light and airy, almost angelic but still with that bittersweet minor key melancholy. Lane 8 fans may recognize it from his 2018 Winter Mix.
Open the windows, put on some flowy clothes and let the serenity of Lane 8’s friendly remix of “Ghost Voices” calm your senses below.
