Tennyson are known for their ability to craft tracks that are as jazzy as they are animated and uplifting. After breaking into the remix game by teaming up with Skrillex in 2015, the sibling duo have returned with a remix of Kasbo‘s 2018 single “Your Tempo.”
Adding in a smooth breakbeat, Tennyson bring a soulful touch to the poppy original. With full-bodied yet choppy synths and pitched up vocals, the brother and sister’s experimental production has resulted in a song that blurs the lines between future bass and R&B. Released via the ever-growing Foreign Family Collective, this track is sure to make an appearance on Kasbo’s upcoming North American and European tour.
The Swedish producer and Foreign Family member Carl Garsbo, better known as Kasbo, entered music swiftly with his soft and sweet productions that shimmered with simplicity and relished in their effortless ability to provoke emotion. On his debut LP “Places We Don’t Know,” Kasbo captured even more attention garnering more than 26 million streams, and showing the world what it truly meant to dance and cry at the same time.
With so much success, it’s no surprise that some of music biggest acts such as Ed Sheeran would enlist his talent in the form of a remix. In his rendition of “Happier,” Kasbo takes the once acoustic track, grabs it by the hand and introduces it into his very own world full of brilliantly warm atmospherics and delicate synths. The remix swirls with elegance from it’s minimal percussion, yet pumps with sentimental energy, that showcases Kasbo’s signature style to a tee and will captivate both his and Ed Sheeran’s fans upon first listen.
“Ascension” is a journey into a world defined by both the beauty and conflicting dangers of technology. In the dystopian world, conception has been forcefully evolved into a machine-driven process, scored by an unreleased cannon of Big Wild’s computer crafted, metallically enhanced production, and synth prowess.
In Big Wild’s own words:
This art piece tells the story of an advanced society that’s become so mechanized and ruled by technology that it’s neglected the natural environment, which it in turn has to now rebuild. The painful irony of this situation brings to question our infatuation with technology and an increasing detachment from the natural world.
We wanted to create our own world and convey a simple but powerful message. I really wanted to experiment musically and collaborate with visual artists to create something unique. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!”
After a pair of releases on ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective, White Cliffs has returned for a third single: “Daisy.” A dynamic production from the Brooklyn-based musician, “Daisy” combined groovy guitar riffs with psychedelic electronic elements to create one of his best tracks to date. It’s not only an ideal jam for a summer drive, but
The aesthetically pleasing visuals behind him may have set a serene scene for Brooklyn’s famed Knitting Factory on Thursday, April 19, but beyond that, Kasbo truly seized the city’s soundscape. Throughout most of human history, we were wanderers, a nomadic race simply not meant to settle. In recent time, however, mankind has taken on a
Once a member of the Monstercat family, you will always be part of the family and you will always have support from the fans. And for me personally, that’s translates well to Kasbo’s career. His track “Again” from 2015 may be one of my favorite Monstercat releases (ever), and I’ve since continued to follow him
ODESZA had a really difficult task ahead of them the moment ‘In Return’ was released. Their sophomore effort was one of the most impressive electronic music albums to ever grace the ears of listeners all over the world. Overnight ODESZA shot from a side stage act at various regional festivals to the Coachella main stage.
Yahtzel may not yet be a household name stateside, but among the sea of forward-thinking producers coming out of Australia, Max Armata stands out as one of the foremost innovators from down under. Splitting his time between his solo endeavor and his OWSLA-endorsed side project Carmada, alongside fellow Aussie L D R U, the producer has built his own distinctly fresh brand of indie-leaning dance productions. For his latest offering, Yahtzel has teamed up with Savoi for an ultra-infectious future pop record titled, “Someone Else.”
The track features a textured topline from Aussie vocalist Savoi sitting atop lush piano chords and buzzing synth arrangements. Complete with mellow drum accents and a grooving, singalong hook, Yahtzel put together a perfect “roll your windows down and cruise to this” product that could garner more attention in the American market than any of his previous solo work. Swapping out his home label Future Classic and debuting on Odesza’s Foreign Family Collective for his latest, Yahtzel has dropped off a undeniable certified late-summer smash on “Someone Else.”
We have polled the EDM Sauce staff of writers, editors and management on several different best of categories for 2016. Every person in the poll was able to select their top three from each category. A first place vote got 3 points, a second place vote got 2 points and third place got 1 point.
Some of my favorite tracks over the past two years have been released via ODESZA’s very own Foreign Family collective/label. From Jai Wolf to Big Wild to Chet Porter to RÜFÜS DU SOL and it’s now safe to say that Golden Features has now been added to this growing list.
While I’m not sure whether these two singles come together as a coherent, though short, body of work, either way both “Wolfie” and “Funeral” sound amazing while still retaining their own individual elements. Kick off with the mellow production and chilled out vocals from Julia Stone with “Wolfie”before you lose yourself in the Gesaffelstein-esque vibes of the aptly-named “Funeral”.
