Seattle based duo and TSIS favorites ODESZA are quite familiar faces to our site from their outstanding breakout debut studio album In Return, to endless remixes and much more. Well last year we did a huge contest for their song "Say My Name" which helped jump start the careers of artists like Autolaser and Geek x Vrv among others. We partnered up with them once again earlier this year for their single "White Lies," which is also from In Return. To make things even more exciting, we brought one of the largest music festivals in the world into the picture, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. The winner not only gets co-signed by ODESZA, uploaded to the TSIS Soundcloud, and given a home page feature on our website, but they will also get to play a set at Bonnaroo this summer alongside ODESZA, Deadmau5, Kendrick Lamar, Flume and many many others.
Well the contest is over and we were all blown away by the response which had over 8,100 people download the stems to enter the contest, with over 586 entries to the contest totalling well over 100,000 visits. There were so many amazing entries, and now the band has chosen winners. The grand prize goes to Attom who's based out of Minnesota and delivered a suprising, extremely melodic Nu-Disco rendition of the track highlighting the original vocals and melodies in a very original way. He will be getting flown out to Bonnaroo, given full lodging at the festival camp ground, will be playing a set at the festival, and you can find his remix below where it's been uploaded to the Thissongissick Soundcloud. We are excited to see what happens for Attom over the next few months, and we can assure he is an act to keep an eye out for.
Runner ups include Jumbo P coming out of Italy, who went against the grain and went for a deeper, downtempo progressive route that turned out very cool. The third place goes to LA based electronic trio Cheat Codes who venture into the future bass side of things with a very original live indie twist that makes the remix really stand out as one of the favorites amongst some of the TSIS crew. All of these artists have very bright futures ahead of them.
Listen below to all three winning remixes and grab exclusive free downloads provided by ODESZA and Bonaroo. Enjoy!
Here are a few words on the contest from ODESZA themselves:
“Thanks to all the producers who submitted a remix and everyone that voted in the contest. And thanks to the TSIS readers for all the support. We’re looking forward to catching Attom’s set at Bonnaroo!” – Harrison and Clay
