Odesza Guest Mix for Purple Sneakers on FBi Click
Well here we are, did you ever think we would make it this far? 2014 has become the year of FBI CLICK – and with it, PURPLE SNEAKERS being one of the fortunate few lucky enough to lasso a show together for all you lovely internet people week in and week out.
Now that the season of giving upon us, and with the fact that we’ve managed to keep a full radio show cranking all year without our heads exploding – we thought we might end 2014 with a special treat in the form of a guest mix. You’ll want to stick around for this one.
This week’s guest mix comes from none other than the Seattle-based duo ODESZA.
With their 2014 album achieving global kudos and pure, unadulterated love from pretty much everyone, there isn’t many places in the world where you can say the word ‘ODESZA’ without hearing a glorious ‘Fuck yeah!’ shouted from somewhere else in the room.
And whilst you may be thinking to yourself – ‘Holy shit, ODESZA guest mix, my life has reached its peak, I can die happy now,’ – Get ready for this bombshell, coz it gets better: the ‘dezza boiz are fruitfully endowing us with a whopping 40 minute slab of mix this week.
Expect many new tunes taken straight fro, the playlists of the ODESZA studios within this mix – the diversity that shines through within this tape is nothing short of frothworthy. From left-field electronica, to soulful hip-hop to ground-shaking bass-isms (spasm of bass), ODESZA have truly gone above & beyond with this one.
Amongst this barrage of new and mind-breaking music is another special treat. Within this mix you’ll be treated to the sweet sounds of LANE 8’s remix of ODESZA’s track ‘Bloom’. World premiere, yo.
And with us finally making our way to the end of 2014, may we here at PURPLE SNEAKERS lend our shoutouts to all you sick dudes & dudettes who’ve kept their ears and eyes with us, keeping up with the groundbreaking new music that has been continually stemming from Australia and beyond. We love y’all. Here’s to a killer 2015.
