Odesza are an American electronic music duo from Seattle consisting of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight. Their debut album, Summer’s Gone, was released in 2012 to much acclaim in the underground electronic music community. Following Summer’s Gone, Odesza released their first EP in 2013 entitled, My Friends Never Die, followed by their second LP, In Return, in 2014. Their name has an interesting story behind the meaning- Odesza is coincidentally the Hungarian spelling for the city of Odessa, Ukraine. The band’s name, however is taken from the name from Mills’ uncle’s ship, which sank. Only his Uncle and one other crew mate survived. Since the spelling “Odessa” was already being used by a Scottish synth band, they instead chose to use the Hungarian spelling, replacing the “ss” with “sz”.
They are still currently busy out on the road, and yet the first phase of their forthcoming ‘In Return’ world tour has already been revealed. With major festivals like Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and Coachella under their belts, the Seattle pair will enjoy a mere 19 days of R&R before traveling to destinations including New Zealand, Paris, Cologne and Amsterdam. From October 30 until December 5, Odesza will make their long-awaited return to North America as part of their largest headlining tour of their careers thus far. Don’t miss out on this dynamic duo’s music and be sure to check out the full list of tour dates below, with more shows to be announced toward the end of the summer!

The Sonic Bed provides a full body psychedelic musical experience that you won’t want to miss out on!
Sound artist Kaffe Matthews has been experimenting with different electro-acoustic material for over two decades in an attempt to explore new ideas of musical perception. One of her more interesting conceptions is the Sonic Bed. Part of the Music For Bodies collaborative research project, it’s a large, wooden structure with high fidelity speakers embedded into the framework. Almost like an isolation tank set to a backdrop of psychedelic soundscapes, it provides a meditative space where two listeners can interact with sound as a full-body experience.
Sonic Bed is also an instrument, to be played by anyone who is interested, to make pieces for it using the specially developed software interface, built by and being developed in collaboration with David Muth. This interface enables the maker to draw and record sounds through the 12 channel sound system hidden under the mattress while lying in it. 12 independent sources of sound can be playing and moving independently at any one time simultaneously while lying in the bed.
Created by Matthews as a museum exhibit (no plans for retail as of yet), the bed requires 220 volts of electricity and covers every inch of your body in sound. Throw in a flat-panel TV and you will never leave bed again.
Click below for details on the construction of the Sonic Bed. Don’t miss out on this psychedelic musical experience!
Josh Wink is an electronic music DJ, label owner, producer, remixer, and an artist. He is a native of Philadelphia and a pioneering DJ in the American rave scene during the early 1990’s, Wink was the most prominent exponent of the tribal forms of techno and house in the U.S. Taking trends, making trends, and breaking trends, Josh Wink’s music has always experimented and influenced. The sound of Josh Wink today remains one of a man unafraid to walk the border between stylistic boundaries. Steve Bug is a German DJ and music producer in the field of minimal house. His DJ skills and a keen, innovative ear led him not down the typical path of the early nineties trance and harder dance scene, but instead towards a fresher, hybrid sound-merging stripped deep house, tweaked out acid and more minimal forms of techno and electronic music.
These two talented DJs are coming together to participate in a series of four back-to-back performances at Kehakuma on the legendary terrace of Space Ibiza. Bug’s house-meets-techno sound has served as a driving force behind today’s commonly dubbed “Berlin sound,” and represents a natural compliment to Wink’s acid-edged genre-blending brand of house. The first of the four exclusive back-to-back performances will take place this Saturday, June 13, with support form Radio Slave and Javi Bora. The remaining three sets will follow each month with dates on July 11, August 8 and September 12. Don’t miss out on these four unforgettable performances by these two unique and talented DJs!
Want a proper bedroom DJ booth but not wanting to pay the pretty penny? DJ Puzzle has a solution: build your dream booth with parts from IKEA. Inspired by a guide from DJ Tech Tools circa 2011, DJ Puzzle has created an in-depth guide to constructing a DJ booth via ready-to-assemble furniture. The setup centers around a Kallax Bookshelf, which, aside from providing a stable foundation for one’s gear, also affords ample storage space for things like equipment or records. The total cost comes out to about $200, and, as detailed in the video, is not as daunting to assemble as one might think. Many DJs spend much of their time at home, in the studio or the in bedroom creating their sets. In the process, DJs have spent a great deal of money on the latest and greatest DJ gear. Luckily DJ Puzzle has assembled a way for you to receive the benefit of an awesome home audio desk without spending a hefty amount. IKEA also has other products that are useful such as some multi-color LED strips for some additional lighting in the darkness. If you’re the least bit serious about mastering your mixing skills, then take the time to check out the video below for creating your own audio desk!
The Swedish duo, Olle Corneer and Stefan Engblom, came together in 2006, combining pop-leaning electro sounds and an over-the-top attitude. This eccentric duo injects their EDM with humor that fills dance floors to its capacity. They don’t care about genres. They don’t care about smartness. They don’t care about the things you care about. They just care about making their audience wanting to jump up and down all night long. Their single “The Fashionista Swindle” parodied the Sex Pistols with its artwork, “The Great Smorgasbord” introduced their love of processed meat, while “Do the Dada” introduced their love of being self-referential. Any song they choose to play fills the floor wherever the hottest electro is welcomed. They went official in 2009 with their debut album, Just Do The Dada, released by the Hussle label and featuring track titles like “Don’t Snort the Yellow Snow” and “So You Wanna Be a Prankster?” Their tour that followed after their album release, introduced Europe to their kinetic live shows where inflatables flew through the crowd, booking agents were forced to “Do the Dada” themselves, and the duo’s tour rider stated that the backstage area must be filled with champagne and bananas or the venue was punished with a tech-house set.
In 2010, they toured with Tiesto, playing remixes from Kylie Minogue to Chickenfoot and collaborating with Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, and Tara McDonald. In 2011 they headlined the Electric Daisy Festival in Los Angeles with a full marching band to perform their song “White Noise/Red Meat”. In July 2014, Dada Life debuted Dada Land: The Voyage, a mini-festival in San Bernardino, CA attended by over 10,000 fans where the duo arrived via hot air balloon. Dada Life will be gracing New York City tonight with their unique and enviable beats. Be sure to join this hilarious and extremely talented duo tonight at LAVO NYC for an unforgettable night. As Dada Life would say, “Destroy dance music and have fun. Don’t look back in the past. Always go forward. Don’t think too much. Always follow the money”.
