Seattle based production duo ODESZA are certainly no name anymore, just recently dropping off a very successful debut album offering with "In Return", something we here at TSIS think is a contender for album of the year. The album featured one of the group's best tracks to date "Say My Name" feat. Zyra, the infectious single that is guaranteed to put you in the best mood over and grooving all the way through. The song was even brought to life in a cinematic music video which is actually an ode to the movie Mullholland Drive. Well now the catchy anthem is going to be taken to unheard places as we have teamed up with ODESZA to run an official remix competition for the single with the winner getting an official release on Counter / Ninja Tune Records as well as exclusive placement and promotion through all of the TSIS channels on top of a brand new Native Instruments Maschine (Something Odesza uses regularly in production), plus a brand new set of Skullcandy headphones. We also have some runner up prizes with everything listed below. We have had amazing success with previous contests with winners including Party Favor and others who have gone on to do incredible things. We couldn't be more excited to see what you all manage to do with this song. Good luck and most importantly Enjoy!
