Cosmic Gate unleash 'Light Years' out today, taken from the forthcoming LP

Drawn from the ranks of their ‘Forward Ever Backward Never’ LP, the new Cosmic Gate single hits today! After Nic & Bossi’s recent ‘Need To Feel Loved‘ and Come With Me outings, Light Years sees the duo getting instrumental, and in about the finest, most floor-persuasive way imaginable.

Channeling in all that 20 Years know-how, its production may major in uplift, but no one is getting short-changed in the harmonic feels department either. Cool and melodic in all the right places, euphorically summit scaling everywhere else -you can experience that ‘Light Years’ feeling for yourself right here, right now.

 It’s fair to say Cosmic Gate have had a pretty charmed start to their milestone twentieth year. The first six months alone have seen the duo serve the aforementioned brace of Beatport #1s with the MINT-playlisted Come With Me and the “profound” (say DJ Mag) “9/10” ranked ‘Need To Feel Loved’. January brought word of their first Grammy nomination and further saw the group kick off their Forward Ever, Backward Never tour -one that to date has touched 30 cities globally.

Evermore those shows have seen Nic & Bossi introduce IDs from their impending ninth longplayer, but further hard facts on [Forward Ever Backward Never]’s contents have remained elusive. Into the new month and we can at last give it to you complete & straight. And for fans old & new, that’s gonna make for some mighty fine reading!

On its announcement, Cosmic Gate commented that it was their intention to “take us closer to the 360 of who we are, where we’ve been and where we’re going. In order to do this, the group junked the ‘greatest hits album’ blueprint and approached their 20 years commemorator from four separate production angles.

Forward Ever places new Cosmic Gate productions like latest single Light Years & Come With Me side by side with 2.0 rebuilds of immortals like The Wave and Not Enough Time. It also serves as a platform for reworks of tracks that personally have been beyond inspirational to Cosmic Gate - Lizard, Need To Feel Loved and ‘L.E.D.’ among them. Further, it features new takes by others on classic Cosmic moments from the past 20.

In that respect, Nic & Bossi have called on the redoubtably future-minded talents of Ilan Bluestone, Andrew Bayer and others to prepare Be Your Sound, Fire Wire and others for next-decade club floor glory.
