STEVE LIONS @ MAYA DAY + NIGHTCLUB
Jeff Montalvo began his musical career as a metal and punk-inclined drummer and then he decided to go out on his own. He wanted to revamp the dance music industry as a producer. His sound is a hybridized creation of trance and deep bass music. His remix of Above & Beyond’s “You Got To Go” served as his breakout introduction to the dance music world. Over the course of his brief career thus far, the top EDM publications and artists have already recognized this sound. This year, Seven Lions was selected as the main support for Porter Robinson’s sold-out Circle Assembly tour, made appearances at world-renowned festivals, such as Ultra Music Festival and Electric Daisy Carnival New York, as well as headlined the Avalon Hollywood, Webster Hall New York City, and other top-tier venues in cities far and wide. The Steve Lions’ musical experience is one you need to experience yourself.
