ODESZA’s “Falls” gets an all-star remix pack from Kaskade, TOKiMONSTA, and moreOdesza

ODESZA blasted back into focus this fall with the release of the horn-powered cinema that is “Loyal”– but that didn’t stop them reaching back to their 2017 track “Falls” for a grip of remixes by a fittingly star-studded set of names. Originally appearing on the duo’s fourth long player A Moment Apart, the Sasha Sloan-assisted cut was pure ODESZA from start to finish, with echoing vocal cuts and tribal percussion. With six stellar artists on hand to reimagine the song, it’s clear the track is headed for exciting new worlds on a stellar array of remixes.

UK-based trap and hip hop savant TroyBoi is up first with a minimal knocker of a rework, featuring sugary guitar strums and twinkling leads over knocking drums. Australian producer Golden Features swoops in next to dial up a menacing and spacey house take that packs equal punch and ambiance. TOKiMONSTA provides a standout addition by preserving the joy and depth of the original along with an injection of stuttering percussion and driving vocal chops. Ever the wildcard, Kaskade surprises with a majestic trap-infused take that lets the vocals soar over rich electro-tinged pads. Photay keeps the unexpected rolling with a rolling and experimental offering that glitches the original’s vocals into a synth like riff. The Glitch Mob wrap the journey up with their sizzling signature electro, capping off a remix pack that brings the ever expansive emotion of ODESZA into the throes of some of electronic music’s most creative minds.

Kaskade Drops The Dance Floor Ready Club Banger – ‘Tight’

This post was originally published on this site

Kaskade has been dropping hit after hit this year, and I could not be happier. It seems that Kaskade has been focusing more on his club-ready house productions more than the euphoric big room many fans have come to know him for producing. This has been more or less welcome across the board. Kaskade has

It’s been a big fall for Kaskade, and we’re not even halfway through October yet. It’s also been a big year overall for the Arkade head honcho, but when does he ever really take a break from issuing new music, charitable performances and positivity? Keeping the answer to that question quite firm is his latest release, entitled “Tight.”

After spending most of 2018 doing sprint drills between his club, festival and patented Redux style, “Tight” takes a strong stylistic stance. He’s found a new muse in the making in Madge, who as a singer/writer/producer herself plays a similar back and forth between the ethereal and gritty, the unifying and the chaotic. On “Tight,” her vocals are dominating and affirmative as they enter, the perfect complement to Kaskade’s similarly discordant synth choice.

Out via his own Arkade now, “Tight” follows the release of “Fun” earlier in the year. With this addition, it’s clear the dance music icon is clearing a new path for himself musically as he blends sounds of underground house with an almost carefree message paired with mainstream music.

Odesza Releases Kaskade’s Gorgeous Remix Of Their Hit Single ‘Falls’

About a week ago a fan shared a video from one of Kaskade’s set of a gorgeous ID that they were begging for more information on. Many fans quickly chimed in and said it sounded like an unreleased remix for Odesza’s hit single off of A Moment Apart, ‘Falls’. Soon Kaskade jumped into the mix

An unrestrained rawness of expression and an accompanying uplifting sentimentality likens some of the staples of ODESZA and Kaskade‘s respective catalogs. Despite the poignant emotionality that pervades both artists’ music, both ODESZA and Kaskade succeed in their shared ability to sheathe even the most achingly confessional production in optimism. Fans of the electronic titans need look no further for an example than Kaskade’s newly released remix of “Falls,” a constituent of ODESZA’s 2017 album, A Moment Apart. Kaskade listeners will recognize the featured vocals as those belonging to none other than Sasha Sloan, memorable for her work on Kaskade’s 2015 Automatic inclusion, “Phoenix.”

Kaskade’s take on the A Moment Apart track listing initially surfaced in several live Kaskade sets, but now gains a full-fledged, mastered release. Kaskade makes minimal but impactful alterations to ODESZA’s evocative original, beginning with the isolation of Sloan’s vocal during the remix’s first few seconds. Whereas ODESZA opt for a melodic breakdown that melds and twists harmonized vocal cuts, Kaskade leans in a more ascendant direction. Kaskade follows the climbing soprano bent of Sloan’s vocal at the song’s hook with mounting synth work that extends the hook’s higher pitch, making for a resplendent re-envisioning of ODESZA’s track.

Kaskade talks new ‘Destinations’ compilation series, the translation of a place into a sound, and plans for upcoming spotlight cities [Q&A]

If a specific place could be translated to sound, then just what might that place sound like? Kaskade envisions an answer to this question on his latest project, Destinations: Tulum, the inaugural installment in the producer’s newly conceived Destinations compilation series. Destinations: Tulum debuted on Kaskade’s Arkade imprint in August. The production sought to embody the spirit of Tulum, crafting a sensory listening experience emblematic of the distinctive personality and aesthetic of Mexico’s coastal getaway spot.

The project’s 18 tracks, hand selected by Kaskade, comprise the first edition of the newly minted series and befit both the character of Tulum, and the larger vision of the Destinations concept. Kaskade describes the actualized product as the result of, “traveling the world and becoming emotionally attached to different locations.” Dancing Astronaut caught up with Kaskade just before his main stage set at Electric Zoo‘s tenth anniversary edition in September to chat about the veteran producer’s newly emerging series.


The first installment of Destinations is out on Arkade and it’s a hefty offering. 18 tracks really gives you a breadth with which to recreate that sensory experience of ‘walking through the town’ or ‘sitting on the beach’ as you’d stated was your objective.

Kaskade: Sounds like you listened to it!

It’s a really dynamic concept. When it comes to translating a place through sound, I’m imagining that the song selection process is different for each compilation. So what were you specifically looking for when it came to choosing the tracks for Destinations: Tulum?

I think I was just trying to capture the mood of that. I’ve been to Tulum, I’ve visited Mexico many, many times, and I came up with the idea for the compilation while sitting in Tulum in a cool café which I don’t know the name of, and they had this DJ playing this really chic, cool music, and in my head it sounded like what’s on the compilation now. It’s been a few years, so I don’t know if it’s actually like that, but it paints a picture in your head. It was this really laidback and chill groove, and I’m sitting at the beach drinking lemonade with my family, and hanging out and I was like, ‘this is amazing,’ and I think the idea for the compilation was just to kind of capture that moment.”

But even if it’s changed you crystallized and froze that moment in time. What is it about these locations — Tulum being the first — that make them canvases for upcoming editions of the series?

I kind of have this theory, and a lot of people agree with me, that you’re inspired by what you’re surrounded with, right? People, places, things, food, you know, family, whatever is happening around you. I think the idea for the compilation is just to have moments, sonic moments, that kind of weave this tapestry and make for something memorable. Then later you’re like, ‘oh my gosh yes, this reminds me of this time I went here or when I went there,’ so yeah I started with Tulum, and we’ll see what comes next, I haven’t started on the next one yet.

So you’re kind of making it up as you go.

Producers are reaching out to me and being like ‘dude, Iceland should be next,’ all these cool places that people want to travel and see and I’m like take it easy! You know, like let’s get the first one out. People have been really receptive to the idea, and other producers who want to contribute. Yeah, I don’t have a place chosen yet, but I have a short list going.

Your Chicago roots — might they lead to a Destinations: Chicago compilation?

There definitely should be a Destinations: Chicago, for sure. 100 percent that needs to happen.

Your Redux shows provide a really intimate and immersive live experience. Destinations seems like it could expand and really lend itself well to a live experience, maybe in a similarly intimate style.

That’s the idea, I hope it grows and expands and people are open minded and want to listen to different locations and what they might sound like, all through the filter of my brain. I’m here letting it unravel and seeing where it takes me.

On the subject of travel, what is your absolute, number one go-to travel essential, the one item you can’t travel without, however general or unusual it might be?

I carry a beanie whether its summer or winter, it doesn’t matter. I travel with those compression socks, it’s kind of a unique thing since everyone else is going to say the same thing, iPhone whatever. But I travel with compression socks, I started doing that before it was cool because now everyone makes compression socks, Nike makes them, Stance, I travel with Stance compression socks since I like them a lot.


While Kaskade returns to the studio to plan the next stop on his musical itinerary, listeners can stream Destinations: Tulum sans jet lag and compression socks here.
