R7 is closing out summer with the new progressive mainstage EP, Close Your Eyes. Defiantly shattering expectations, Close Your Eyes is a massive follow-up to their hit debut Superhero EP (Rubicon 7), which rocketed into the Beatport Top 10 simultaneously in Techno, Progressive House and Breaks.
The radio-friendly original mixes have a solidly progressive house feel, yet the EP as a whole shows R7's unmistakable disregard for genre boundaries, combining elements from electro house, techno, trance and pop.
Close Your Eyes is rounded out with energetic club mixes and a bass heavy late night mix of Love Will Carry Us -- with stunning original vocals and driving beats, this EP hits on every level.
The EP will be exclusively released through Beatport worldwide on August 21, 2015. Other stores including Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify and Amazon will follow on September 18, 2015.
