Deathpact release their first edit with a heavy flip of ODESZA’s cult-classic, ‘Loyal’Deathpact Odesza Remi

REZZ’s “Life And Death” collaborator and mystery beatsmith, Deathpact, continues their steady stream of releases with an official flip of ODESZA’s cult-classic “Loyal.” The enigmatic producer released their first edit after dropping two EPs in about a month’s time, Cipher One and Cipher Two. Leaving ODESZA’s signature drum line front-and-center, the haunting horns build into Deathpact’s antsy anticipation, then fall upon heavy bass-house foundation with cinematic glitches and rumbling sub bass. It’s an even more aggressive take on one of ODESZA’s more aggressive offerings, creating a nice contrast to the duo’s already versatile electronic catalog.

Deathpact has received support from the industry’s top tastemakers including Pete Tong and Annie Nightingale on BBC Radio 1, Spotify’s Dance Rising playlist, Apple Music’s Breaking Dance/EDM, and Billboard’s Ones To Watch. The fast-growing fanbase congregates on an unofficial Discord server dedicated to solving the question everyone is trying to answer, “who is Deathpact?” With consistently high quality products coming at such a rapid pace, it has become one of the most interesting dance music storylines of the year.

Deathpact has been one of the most exciting aspects in all of dance music in 2018. The masked producer has broken onto the scene with a series of dark, twisted and powerful bass house and distorted tech-house. In their latest release, Deathpact has remixed Odesza’s powerhouse new record, ‘Loyal’. The remix is everything that one

Sunday Morning Medicine, Vol. 152: featuring ATTLAS, Icarus, Khåen, + moreSMM 2400

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.


Bristol’s Icarus brethren avoid flying too close to the sun, with this ambient house offering, “October.” Instead, like a warm summer’s rain, they’re here to absolve you of weekend transgressions with skittering, precipitous percussion and revelatory vocal incantations.

Listeners of intention may recognize “Third Evangelist,” as well as most of Khåen’s new Solace In The Night album, from Lane 8‘s adorned seasonal mixes and live sets, as well as featured on the latter’s recently incepted This Never Happened label housing. With minimal production froth, “Third Evangelist” glows with a transcendental twinkle, intended to rescue listener’s from the icy precipice of a Sunday afternoon.

ODESZA addicts will revel inside the redemptive reverb of Satin Jackets’s “So I Heard.” The sultry track’s languorous strings and otherworldly vocal harmonies are likely to incite wakeful dreams through lustrous beaches eons from the throes of office monotony.

Sexy doesn’t even begin to chronicle the audible encounter that is mossy.’s reworking of Lido‘s “Dye.” The track experiments, unfettered, with beat-deliberate downtempo mechanisms, most notably its lush and languid harp plucks.

ATTLASmau5trap endeavor from earlier this year, “Concussion,” is an equal parts blissful and torrential odyssey that eventually lands listeners back on their feet—once its effects have abated—much like a night of heavy drinking. Its rattling percussion and stormy synth blasts are mediated by a tender, steadying melody that reminds the listener of lighter arenas, like a ghost of dance floors past.

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.

ODESZA announced earlier this year that they would not return to Red Rocks Amphitheater in 2019, thereby ending a consecutive four-year run of shows at the venue. The news led fans to speculate that the electronic duo could be plotting a momentous event in place of the annual Colorado show, more specifically, a Foreign Family Collective festival. Now, the duo have officially ended the speculation with the announcement of Sundara, set for March 13 – 16, 2019 in Riviera Maya, Mexico.

The label heads, and now festival organizers, are slated to headline the event, along with Alison Wonderland, RL Grime, and RÜFÜS DU SOL. Supporting talent for the inaugural beach festival includes Bob Moses, Tokimonsta, and Golden Features. Each act featured on Sundara’s debut lineup will play two different, unique sets across the three day event.

ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective label claimed an Electric Forest first in 2017 as the imprint hosted its own stage at the Michigan festival, programmed with talent curated from their imprint including Jai Wolf, Chet Porter, and Kasbo. ODESZA enthusiasts reasoned that the launch of a festival-style event would be a logical next step in Foreign Family’s progression, and as ODESZA has confirmed, a Foreign Family festival is now well within fans’ collective ‘line of sight.’
