"Lanes hails from Brooklyn, USA and firmly sits in the EDM genre however there's a clarity in the synth work that I really enjoyed – above and beyond the usual EDM fare I'm sent. His first EP entitled Vixens is ..."

"It's slowly grows out of these fairly minimal sounds, flowering into this house beat, over which
Lanes shows he can cut the mustard with his melodic skills, and his chord sequences are pretty
razor-sharp as well. What transpires is this bubbling, melodic track that ebbs and flows, builds
and releases tension, and just allows you to float away from it all, whether that's on the dancefloor
of a club, or in front of the fire in my living room.
Welcome to the party, Lanes. Please, do stay."
Thank you Jim!

Just came across this clever post by Carl King (a.k.a. Sir Millard Mulch a.k.a. Dr. Zoltan Obelisk).
It's called " 10 Myths About Introverts " and is based on a book
" The Introvert Advantage (How To Thrive in an Extrovert World) " by Marti Laney.
Being a typical case of the book's subject I'm pretty much familiar with a range of
misconceptions commonly projected toward introverts, and although I personally find most of those prejudices more amusing than offensive, I still thought this post might be of interest to you because it can either help you understand your own eccentricities or give you a good insight on what makes some of your friends tick (and how to treat them accordingly).
Here is the list in case if you'd like to read it here (for original post and book click on the titles above):
Myth #1 – Introverts don't like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don't talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won't shut up for days.
Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don't interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don't worry about being polite.
Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don't see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.
Myth #4 – Introverts don't like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you're in.
Myth #5 – Introverts don't like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don't like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don't need to be there for long to “get it.” They're ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.
Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don't have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.
Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
Introverts are often individualists. They don't follow the crowd. They'd prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don't make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.
Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It's not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it's just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.
Myth #9 – Introverts don't know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.
Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
A world without Introverts would be a world with few scientists, musicians, artists, poets, filmmakers, doctors, mathematicians, writers, and philosophers. That being said, there are still plenty of techniques an Extrovert can learn in order to interact with Introverts. (Yes, I reversed these two terms on purpose to show you how biased our society is.) Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.

The July 27, 2011 video shoot went smoothly. We had to reschedule it twice because of
the rainy weather (I love sky water as long as it doesn't end up on my gear) but the right day
had come and we managed to get the job done.
It's just a bunch of raw footages so far, but it all will soon be put through some creative video editing and turned into a proper video piece. Naturally, I wanted to hire a video production company ASAP but after discussing it with my friends I've decided to put a deeper thought into
all details to be taken care of.
I'm generally quite clear on what I want from my music but here is a different kind of challenge
and I'd rather take my time and make it right than come up with some half-assed product.

Just wanted to say THANK YOU to those of you who bought Hydra Missing CDs from
CD Baby within last two months and for all the feedback about the music. I always
listen to what you have to say, no matter is it positive or negative.
There was a radio girl from Arizona who has criticized the shit out of Verity and for a
moment made me feel totally miserable despite all good things I've heard about the album
before her statement. But after my first reaction subsided I've realized that she actually made
me a big favor because she's also managed to make me angry at myself for not doing enough
for my music to avoid this kind of criticism.
Despite being brutally negative she was specific about a couple of things I neglected to pay enough attention to when I was writing Verity and since I used to learn my lessons fast I have put both of them on my top priority list when I was in the middle of writing material for Biomorphic.
Now that the new album is ready in its pre-production stage I can tell for sure that the things she mentioned and pushed me to take care of have clearly made a lot of difference in my sound bringing it to a new level which I've been struggling to reach since I began to write music. I can't give her all the credit because there were some other factors that allowed me to do that but her part here turned out to be rather crucial.

Me and Susan Frances talk about games, waves and layers.
"Electronic music canvasses a broad spectrum of styles from the tranquilizing atmospherics of Enigma to the club-driven melodies of David Guetta. Its terrain is the product of music technology made mostly from synthesizers, sequencers, midi files/samples, and drum machines which are accessible from an audio digital workstation. Electronic music is tilled by artists who bridge world cultures by being able to produce sounds that are identifiable to distinct regions, sometimes replicating Australia's didgeridoo or Scotland's bagpipes, and then layering the exotic accents with melodic expressions that have a futuristic-slant. In effect, electronic music can form visuals by shaping sounds, and New York City-based Andrei Lanes is one of the genre's finest illusionists to shape its landscape."

Verity review featured in Hybrid Magazine
"Lanes composes cinematic pieces that are continually in a state of motion, emitting crystal clusters soaked in a solution of profound sonic assortments and viaducts of cryptic symphonies sprouting from the main artery."

Verity premiere on KUCR 88.3 FM Siked Electronixx radio show hosted by Walter Douglas: the two-hour program has featured over thirty minutes of my music including tracks from all my albums with a majority of compositions taken from Verity.
Sorry for not giving a heads up before the feature and that's mostly because we were not sure if Verity is gonna make it into KUCR's Friday playlist and only got the good news right before the show.
Siked Electronixx will rerun their 'Lanes Mix' next Thursday, January 14, at 11 pm Pacific Time. http://www.kucr.org

"Lanes' Fractal Collapse on his own imprint is quite impressive; its prime directive crafted by metalic shards of eerie basslines and shredded industrial noise. "Shapeshifter" is the perfect balance of all the above mentioned elements and encapsulates the mood of Fractal Collapse."
