ODESZA announce final performance of ‘A Moment Apart’ eraOdesza Lost Lake Jeff Kravitz

All good things must come to an end—including, of course, ODESZA‘s immersive A Moment Apart tour. The rapturous live experience that followed the electronic duo’s lauded 2017 LP of the same name has taken Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight across the world to deliver mesmerizing renditions of A Moment Apart album inclusions. With a storied run of shows as a result of this latest album cycle now largely in the rear view mirror, Mills and Knight are ready to retire the concept and get back into the studio.

ODESZA will conclude their expansive live initiative with a finale installment, slated for July 27 at Los Angeles State Historic Park. Special guests Big Wild, Evan Giia, MEMBA, and Ford. will provide support. MEMBA and Ford. are memorable for their recent remixes of “Corners Of The Earth” and “Thin Floors And Tall Ceilings,” respectively. Both reworks graced ODESZA’s A Moment Apart Remixes release. Fans looking to be at the highly anticipated A Moment Apart The Finale can register for access to pre-sale tickets, here.

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes.

Reinvention fuses with original foundation on A Moment Apart Remixes, ODESZA‘s newly minted, six-track pack of album revamps. MEMBA, ford., Kodak To Graph, Mild Minds, Running Touch, and Chet Porter each have a re-imaginative “moment” with one A Moment Apart inclusion. Bearing no repeats, the collection of remixes is a diverse, full-bodied assortment of takes that enables ODESZA listeners to hear select A Moment Apart cuts anew. The featured artists respectively inflect “Corners Of The Earth,” “Thin Floors And Tall Ceilings,” “Divide,” “Just A Memory,” “Late Night,” and “Line Of Sight” with their own stylistics, to construct a different listening experience for the A Moment Apart Remixes streamer.

To listen to a remix pack is to discover new sonic perspectives, and in their time with the slew of remixes, ODESZA fans will do just that. MEMBA place a meticulously crafted, cinematic twist on “Corners Of The Earth,” while ford. dives into viscous, downtempo bliss on “Thin Floors And Tall Ceilings.” Kodak To Graph’s contribution surfaces as a similarly silky, slow offering, as does Mild Minds’. Running Touch makes tasteful revisions to “Late Night” that increase the euphoria-inducing ability of the original, and last but certainly not least, certified crowd-pleaser Chet Porter submits a stunning rendition of “Line Of Sight,” to provide a formidable finale to A Moment Apart Remixes.

Adorned or scorned, DA has a playlist for either this Valentine’s DayDA V DAY

Snuggle up with your boo or rev your vengeance this Valentine’s Day, as Dancing Astronaut delivers a double dose of situational satiation. Playlist 1, This Could Be Us, scratches the adorned listeners’ sensuous itch, with syrupy electronic selects from Above & Beyond, Daft Punk, ZHU, and more. Playlist 2, But You Playin’, ventures the length of the scorned lover, with deliciously despondent offerings from SZA, Mija, Lido, and many more. It’s complicated? Just as well, as you’ll have twice the listening litany this year.

Robotaki makes Foreign Family Collective debut, announces forthcoming EP

Robotaki makes Foreign Family Collective debut, announces forthcoming EPRobotaki

Toronto-based producer, Robotaki, is adding his name to the menagerie of luminous talent ODESZA has hosted under their ever-growing Foreign Family Collective. His latest, “All I Can Do,” serves as Robotaki’s first official Foreign Family release.

With its languid, downtempo allure, “All I Can Do,” emulates the moody, retro synth struts of Tame Impala, alongside his own nuanced brand of hazy surrealism. The deceivingly detached vocal floats in and out of the forefront of the composition, all the while chugging towards the gradual realization that the relationship in question is officially doomed, ultimately giving way to emotional epiphany, embodied in the swirling synth bursts ensconcing the track’s latter half.

“All I Can Do” is the first track to usher in Robotaki’s Anachronism EP and coinciding North American tour. He’s also expected to join Big Wild and Mild Minds for a series of select live shows in Chicago, New York, Detroit, Portland, and more.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 75

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 75Deters Beat Lab@0.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Listen in playlist format here.


Fans have come to expect consistently groovy tunes from The Knocks, and they always deliver. The New York duo has released some mighty remixes already this year including ones for Charli XCX and Joe Janiak. Now, they’ve taken on ODESZA‘s “Falls,” flipping it into a “Get Up Mix” of easygoing swankiness. This remix brings The Knocks’ signature good vibes, giving listeners a new way to digest one of ODESZA’s most iconic tracks.

BLOODTONE‘s latest original comes at the listener dark and heavy. Fitting in perfectly with his “post-apocalyptic horror house” brand, “Drag Me Down” does just what its name implies and drags its listener down to the deepest depths of his breed of house music. Haunting vocals drift in and out between a weighty bassline and sharp kicks, giving an eerie atmosphere to the song’s entire length. It’s deliciously spooky.

Julian Calor returns to Monstercat with his second single, a spirited psytrance track called “You Might Get Lost.” The track is brilliantly deceptive, with an introduction that seems easygoing enough. A computerized voice warns to not wander around your memories, because you might get lost. Even when a build begins to crescendo, it’s still hard to grasp the pounding trance beat that hits at the drop. The melody is infectious, too.

Hidden Face‘s latest takes on a bit of a different feel, showing a vulnerable and emotive side to his often-mysterious production. “Looking For Happiness” leads in with a delicate guitar introduction and soothing vocals, setting the tone for the minimalist instrumentals to follow. These components together give the track a dreamy and contemplative feel throughout course of the song. It feels deeply personal and somehow familiar, and it’s a beautiful thing.

For his first release of the year, Grabbitz leans into his pop/hip-hop skills. “Polaroid” on Ultra Music is all about heartbreak and the raw emotions that come with it, which Grabbitz showcases perfectly with wistful vocals and solemn instrumentals. Its smooth beat flows effortlessly with the heartfelt verses, illustrating Grabbitz’s production capabilities in their finest form. The Buffalo native continues to demonstrate his versatility with each release, leaving fans wondering what’s coming next.

Organizers on behalf of San Diego’s house-and-techno-hailing CRSSD festival have released the Waterfront Park event’s phase-one lineup. The expansive artistry, including widely received electronic billings, like ODESZA (who will be returning after making their far humbler debut in 2015), Phantogram, and Whethan, exemplifies the once-modest festival’s continued growth in popularity and attendance.

The bi-annual soiree, of which this year’s spring installment is set for Mar 2-3, has seen idiosyncratic acts across the board–from Gesaffelstein to Empire Of The Sun–sweep through its stylistically sectioned stages, The Palms, City Steps, and Ocean View. With a mass of acts still to come, the brimming first batch includes additional support from Petit Biscuit, The Martinez Brothers, Jungle, and more. See the full lineup below.

Tickets to 2019 CRSSD go on sale Tuesday, Dec 11. They’ll be available here.

Electric Forest is pulling out all the stops for their single 2019 edition. The festival recently scaled back their two weekend offering back to their original one weekend format, though organizers were quick to even it out with the delivery of 2019’s lineup. To say next year’s billing is stacked would be an understatement — ODESZA, Kygo, Bassnectar, and Zeds Dead are holding down headlining duties, with festival favorites The String Cheese Incident returning for a three-night run. The under card features a mile-long list of talent headed to Rothbury, Michigan including Claude VonStroke, Alison Wonderland, Bob Moses, Lettuce, Ekali, Whethan, Gramatik and many more across June 27 – 30.

SLANDER and NGHTMRE are billed for a GUD VIBRATIONS label showcase, with Snails, TOKiMONSTA, The Knocks, and Bloodpop all slated for Electric Forest 2019 as well. Live sets from Gorgon City, Pnuma, and Ookay are expected, along with jam band flavors and a healthy serving of hip-hop from T-Pain. See Electric Forest 2019’s full lineup below.

ODESZA release VIP Mix of ‘It’s Only’ on new deluxe edition of ‘A Moment Apart’ [Stream]Odesza 1

With the release of their album In Return four years gone and A Moment Apart over a year in the rear view mirror, ODESZA has brought both releases into 2018 with multiple new elements. The first is a new VIP remix of the single “It’s Only,” taken from their 2014 sophomore album. The updated mix of the track bumps up the original’s energy with a stampede of drums and an isolation of Zyra’s vocals.

But remix is only one half of ODESZA’s newest offerings. The Washington-native electronic duo has released the deluxe edition of A Moment Apart. Rounding out at 25 tracks total, the two-sided offering includes nine new tracks, breathing brand new energy into one of the strongest albums from 2017.
