Watch This: ODESZA premiere an album’s worth of unreleased music at Red Rocks

This post was originally published on this site

Due to their meticulously rehearsed, top-notch live performance—resplendent with genre-bending trap, indietronica, and future bass—ODESZA aren’t exactly known for switching up their sets from stop to stop. Just one week after ODESZA premiered a new track ID at their home town global tour kick off, however, the Seattle-based duo delivered as many as 8 entirely new tracks while at their headlining show at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado.

Amid rumors of a new album in the works and plenty of chatter over whether the two would be dropping songs off the new LP at their latest two-night run, which took place May 27-28, the duo certainly delivered on this tacit promise to their fanbase. While both nights’ sets resembled the exact same order of song progression, what made ODESZA’s live performance so memorable and, indeed impressive, was just that: it was a live band experience. An immersive experience at that, complete with all the interchangeable moving parts of a well-cogged machine, including a dramatically choreographed drum line and a stunning visual production by STS9‘s former lighting designer, Saxton Waller, of Colorado-based Brown Note Production.

The direction ODESZA has taken is a clear step away from the EDM duo we’ve come to know, with the duo of Harrison and Clayton eschewing the drums and mixers for one more towards an electronic rock music aesthetic with the two front liners introducing their fellow bandmates on the guitar, trumpet, and trombone. Whether ODESZA plans to oscillate between DJ sets and live acts isn’t known, but make no mistake that the new album—which hasn’t been given an official release date—will contain all the classic musical elements that we’ve come to love about the ODESZA sound stamp: ebullient and ethereal, over a heavy low-end bass line foundation.

Giveaway: Win a pair of tickets to Gramatik, Mr. Carmack and Ekali at Red Rocks

This post was originally published on this site

This June, NYC-based producer, musician, DJ, and entrepreneur Gramatik is coming back from his far-reaching Epigram world tour to one of his favorite venues, the iconic Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Morrison, CO. For the 2017 iteration of his annual night of heavy electronic funk among the rocks, the Slovenian is bringing along his friends and fellow bass-music aficionados Mr. Carmack, Ekali, and Flamingosis.

Gramatik and his team have revamped the Nikola Tesla-inspired stage that he toured with a few years ago to once again honor the eccentric genius and his inventions. The newly re-worked stage and live show, titled RE:COIL, will again feature the aesthetic of the famous Tesla Coil, but is also meant to symbolize – as the name suggests – a departure from the numerous bizarre and tragic events in 2016 that made many people around the world recoil in shock or horror.

Check out the announcement video and enter the contest below for your chance to win two tickets to what is sure to be one of the highlights of 2017.

For those who want to be 100% certain of their spot at the show, tickets can be purchased through Gramatik’s website here.

Snails Announces “Sluggtopia” Red Rocks Performance For 2017 [VIDEO]

As followers of Snails’ social media will know, his New Year’s Eve stop in Denver at Decadance marked a very important milestone in his career. He told fans to expect “the biggest announcement” he’s ever given, and lucky for us, members of the EDM Sauce team were in attendance to capture the full reveal.

During the final minutes of his hour and a half set on Saturday, Snails took to the mic to introduce his attendees to a video that played across the stage’s screens. He promised “another level of bass and filth” to take place in 2017 at Sluggtopia, a brand new festival at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

On October 6, 2017, Snails will be joined by NGHTMRE, JOYRYDE and other worthy bass music scientists to play one of their biggest shows to date, according to the video. As some have speculated, the announcement comes as a subtle hint that Snails might be taking some time off from touring in the upcoming months to more wholly focus on creating new music to premiere at the event.
