6. Island (Remixes), 2019
“Not every song here is meant for everyone, but to each his own. If you are new to the electronic world, this is a great primer, despite hearing Nevve’s singing over and over again. That’s not necessarily bad, but then again, everyone yearns for a well curated Spotify queue. Listen to this at your own pace, then decide which ones you liked best.”
5. Worlds Apart, 2014
“When Seven Lions’s Worlds Apart EP released, I was floored by the sheer quality of every song. There is a bit of classic Seven Lions instrumental dubstep with Nepenthe, while having some expertly crafted electronica overall. I would say that this is Jeff’s perfect EP, none of the singles feel weak, and need a certain amount of attention to truly appreciate them. Probably my favorite EP from any artist.”
4. Days to Come EP, 2012
“Perhaps one of the reasons this EP is far better than most in the genre is that the effects are used tastefully and appropriately instead of throwing them around spastically in unpredictable and unstructured patterns. In fact I’m not even sure that some of the tracks on here belong in the ‘typical’ dubstep category. Then again my experience with dubstep is very limited, so I could easily be wrong.”
