We ascend to cloud nine as two of our all time favorite electronic acts, Seattle’s ODESZA and Australia’s Flight Facilities, come together on a track off ODESZA’s new Higher Ground remix pack. I’ll let that sink in for a moment… this is two juggernaut production forces with completely different artistic styles. That’s right, Flight Facilities has given Higher Ground, one of the most beautiful arias off ODESZA’s beloved album A Moment Apart, a lush, halcyon house edit! Their remix departs from their usual disco imbued dance music, but it’s a deep thrumming, verdant and feathery beauty nonetheless with glowing sunset vibes enhanced by Naomi Wild’s gorgeous voice. ODESZA’s new remix pack also features remixes by Reske, pluko (fka Pluto), and the original version of HIgher Ground. Stream in full on Soundcloud, here. Support via alternate platforms, here.

I’m quite sure that there are few electronic projects that are as well respected and widely loved as Seattle’s ODESZA. It’s safe to say much of the electronic music loving world is looking forward to September 8th with an immeasurable amount of excitement, since the duo’s next album A Moment Apart will be arriving that fateful day. They’ve already given us a few sweet tastes off the album, some of them featuring talent we deeply adore, all of them showcasing the pair’s growing versatility. ODESZA adds to their growing list of stellar A Moment Apart tracks with Higher Ground, a prismatic and effervescent aria featuring Los Angeles chanteuse Naomi Wild. Higher Ground is a sweetly shimmering, chromatic sprawling aria whose celestial beauty recalls the pair’s earliest hits off phenomenal 2014 album In Return. The single is available, here.

argonaut&wasp’s Higher Ground is no new gem, but the Vermont duo’s song which has been enchanting and melting me for a year now just received a fine music video treatment. The song itself is such a velvet plush, dexterous groover. It’s a sexy, wonky funk jam with copious deep house resplendence. The new heated video is the fitting accompaniment to the lustful burn of Higher Ground. The single comes from argonaut&wasp’s Future Protoccal EP, available on iTunes.

Vermont duo argonaut&wasp revealed a new track off their debut EP, Future Protocol. Like the first track, Higher Ground, Stranger Lover (When You Came Into My Life) is a gloriously sexy electro funk jam, full of Jungle meets Mark Ronson rich guitars and snazzy bass. Crisp falsettos round out the deeply grooving, slick, and sensual song. The track also boasts one of the best guitar solos I’ve listened to in a long time, so thoroughly gratifying. Argonaut&wasp’s debut EP will be out February 20th and it’s available for pre-order, here.

Argonaut & Wasp is gearing up to release their debut EP, Future Protocol, come February, and the first track, Higher Ground, is up for free grabs as of today. The Vermont based duo, comprising of Trey Schibli and Theo Klein, blends old school rhythms of funk and indie with thrilling electronic production. Higher Ground is a simmering, sensual treat that glistens and glides slickly. A&W has been attracting tons of buzz lately back in the Northeast, having played a series of dates with Lemaitre over the summer. They were also named as best local act by “The Vermont Cynic”.
