EVAN GIIA makes her Astralwerks debut with Memba co-produced single ‘Encore’Image001

Astralwerks has signed Brooklyn-based, Berklee College of Music alumna EVAN GIIA, and she is finally out with her first single on the label. “Encore” is co-produced by fellow rising star MEMBA, who’s become somewhat of a favorite on ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective. The new joint effort follows up their last collaboration, “Heat Of The Moment,” which also served as GIIA’s recording debut. They continue their success working together with this smooth new single.

“Encore” begins with a cinematic build that lays the foundation for GIIA’s sultry vocals. Energy builds and emotions stir, leading into an overwhelming bass-tinged drop; the effect is quite climactic. Additionally, the production feels built for radio play; moments of electronic euphoria are laced throughout the crossover-appealing tune, and GIIA’s impassioned vocals are a help create a well-rounded whole.

EVAN GIIA will be touring with Big Wild this fall, and fans can see if they are coming to a location near them here.

MEMBA’s “SAGA-II” EP has finally arrived on ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective. The dynamic duo is ready to showcase the depth of their musical and artistic capabilities with this next project. The SAGA series is a trilogy that explores three planets in the universe, conveying different emotions. SAGA II is the next stop on the MEMBA

MEMBA release sublime second chapter in the ‘SAGA’ release series, ‘SAGA-II’MEMBA

MEMBA take a different course of stylistic action on SAGA-II, the second installment in the electronic duo’s three-part conceptual release series. SAGA-I arrived as a cerebral three-cut effort with sauntering rhythms and a barefaced indulgence in bass. Sitting at a total of seven tracks, SAGA-II is less aggressive in its implementation of the low end in comparison to the inaugural EP of the sonic SAGA. SAGA-II prioritizes nimble instrumentation, as evident on “Boundless” and “Schools Out,” among other EP inclusions.

SAGA-II channels the feeling of childhood and that universal wonder we are all born with. That wide-eyed curiosity and desire for play that slowly fades as life goes on. This EP is a really personal one for us, we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it

-M

Rippling melodies undulate across SAGA-II‘s body. There’s a tonal brightness to the EP that characterizes SAGA-II as a spirited, particularly effervescent endeavor. MEMBA involve vocals in an impactful capacity: the vocals of “Smara” showcase the powerful synchronicity of MEMBA’s musical arrangements and the vocal, as do EVAN GIIA‘s on “Walls Down.”

SAGA-II is out now via Foreign Family Collective.

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKEDRukes III

While HOLY SHIP! won’t be setting sail in 2020, it’ll sure still be getting down. The revered HARD Events maritime festival will anchor itself in the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana next year, January 22-26 with a whole new name: HOLY SHIP! WRECKED.

Casting a wide and prominent net, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED has secured Diplo, Lane 8, Claude VonStroke, and Madeon to top its astounding 2020 roster, while Chris Lake, NGHTMRE & Slander, and Jai Wolf comprise what one could hardly call an undercard. Distinguished names from across the house and bass-abundant spectrum speckle the robust roster, from 12th Planet to TOKiMONSTA, Whethan to What So Not, the agenda seems to extend something irrefutable for every electronic taste preference. Up-and-coming contenders like Dom Dolla, Sonny Fodera, and ODESZA-championed MEMBA offer the lineup a fresh-faced appeal as well.

Not only is the lineup set to be one of the most in-depth throughout the HOLY SHIP! timeline, but the shift in format will offer #Shipfam an event that is both excitingly new and refreshingly familiar. Cloud 9 Adventures,the lead company behind the ship experience, has been producing events in concert with the Punta Cana resort for many years already and will bring that expertise to HOLY SHIP! WRECKED .

Just as on HOLY SHIP!, the resort will only be open to attendees throughout the festival. Seasoned Shipfam will still receive their robes as well as their OG party as fans and artists live together for a weekend in paradise:

We are shipfam for life, so we couldn’t miss out on this! – Gorgon City

Time to start the search for buried treasure. We be shipwrecked this year me maties! – Claude VonStroke  

When it comes time for the artists to perform, there will be nine different areas for music spread throughout the resort. With the increased amount of space, the overall production will be at a much higher level and each area will maintain a specific sonic identity. From daily pool parties to a 1,000 person-capacity club to a sunrise set on the beach, artists will be spinning multiple sets in a variety of environments to satisfy the astute tastes of Shipfam.

Plus, the extensive amenities provided both on-site and in the immediate area will allow for a much broader range of artist involved activities which will be announced soon.

Attendees of HOLY SHIP! WRECKED will have 24-hour access to the resort’s private beach. Every room includes its own balcony, hot tub, free Wi-Fi, and is roughly three times the size of rooms on the boat. There are nine restaurants around the resort offering everything from sushi to pizza, and just like on ship, food and drinks (including alcohol) are all-inclusive.

In terms of recreation outside of music, there is mini-golf, a lazy river, a waterslide, and much more on property. For an extra charge, attendees can take their experience to the next level with a full 18-hole golf course, excursions on dune buggies and ATV’s, a 65,000 square-foot spa, scuba diving, and various other activities that only a world-class island resort can offer.

Pre-sale for HOLY SHIP! WRECKED starts next Monday, July 29, and tickets officially go on sale Wednesday, July 31 at 11 am PT, available here, along with general festival information.

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.

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.
