Friday Mix: Brand New Odesza Mixtape: ‘No.Sleep – Mix 0.9’

THIS week, a particularly generous Music Brewery is dishing out two Friday Mixes to really get you excited for the weekend. The first should have you seriously contemplating a trip to Birmingham in the near future, while this diverse offering is hot off the production decks.

odesza nosleepOdesza have just today released the ninth instalment in their highly-regarded No.Sleep mixtape series. The production duo from Seattle, consisting of Catacombkid and BeachesBeaches, have followed the precedent they set in earlier instalments and liberally ignored genre boundaries once again.

The result is the best part of an hour’s blend of techno, deep house, hip-hop and more. One of the most impressive characteristics of the track is the variation in the tone; light, reflective sounds can change quickly to a distinctly earthier and more sombre feel.

Fans will recognise some of the broader Odesza hallmarks, such as the ethereal, heady sound accompanied by attention-grabbing drums, as well as more specific commonly-used tools like the glitched-out vocals that are present.

I’m already looking forward to what will be an intriguing tenth volume – let’s hope the landmark release is as diverse and enjoyable as this one.

A busy schedule sees the pair touring all around Europe and North America this summer. Check out their website to see when they’ll be near you.
