There’s nothing quite like waking up and seeing a collaboration between two of your most admired producers. I haven’t seen many artists have the same kind of all encompassing reach in the music scene quite like ODESZA has. They’ve gotten props from people all across the board. From Wu Tang Clan to ZHU, so it’s pretty well regarded at this point that these guys are a force to be reckoned with.

 

This remix shows their slower, more chilled out and groovy side. With Katie Herzig’s vocals slowly building to a fast paced and synth heavy dance sesh that ODESZA is so good at.

Moose Records has been fueling many a dream of ours since their inception. Their prized compilations, Moosetapes, have turned us onto so many cool artists who are just doing their thing, most elegantly so. #7 is no less awesome than we expected.

 

Kick back, relax, and let the chill run through you. Support the art!

Finnish producer Tontario caught the world by surprise with his version of the highly remixed ‘A World Alone’ by Lorde. The simplicity turned it into easy-pickin’ mellow mood setter. Between then and now, he’s been busy with similar summery vibes. His more recent tracks see him venturing into more energetic and experimental realms.

 

Case in point: his remixes of SOHN‘s ‘Bloodflows’ and MNEK‘s ‘The Rhythm’.

As is customary for year’s end, we must reflect back on our experiences. The way everything came together for us this year in regards to music – album releases, shows, festival appearances, CAD4.0! – definitely makes it one of the best years we’ve had. We’ve put together a top 20 list to recognize our very much opinionated favourite releases of 2014. These twenty albums influenced us in some way or other throughout the year by making us dance, think (or not think), and enjoy life; and they deserve a shout out for that. Onward to bigger and better in 2015!
