Binding ambient soundscapes with melodic house and techno grooves, Brisbane artist Odd Mob releases his dynamic new single ‘Wide Open’ on Tinted Records. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Flume and Kaytranda, the new record highlights the producer’s knack for intertwining hypnotising synth sounds with a pulsating, club ready bassline while seamlessly blending in soulful vocals, adding a level of sophistication to the record.
Odd Mob discusses his love for contrasting chill electronic music with a bouncy bassline, “‘Wide Open’ was a really fun track to make. Similar to ‘Bad Moon’ it was nice to have such a soulful vocal performance to juxtapose with the heavier bassline.”
Cementing himself as an innovative producer, Odd Mob has released a consecutive run of club favourites over the years. Following the release of the ‘Diffusion’ EP featuring the stand-out record ‘Lithium’, earning the producer over 3.5 million streams, Odd Mob has gone onto craft a style and sound that is so uniquely his own. Compounding this with the release of ‘Intrinsic’, Odd Mob brought together distorted vocals and diverse futuristic house beats, winning him fans all across the globe, and a dedicated cult following out of the US. Off the back of the success of ‘Intrinsic’, Odd Mob embarked on his debut tour of North America in 2019, playing iconic venues such as the Sound in Los Angeles and Schimanski in New York. With high demand for the Odd Mob’s energetic club shows, he returned to the US for a second tour in 2020. Continuing to release an array of singles, Odd Mob’s track ‘Gassed Up’ became a festival anthem across the US, played to crowds at Coachella, EDC Las Vegas and Holy Ship after it caught the attention of industry heavyweights, JAUZ and DJ Snake.
More recently, Odd Mob has further explored working with vocalists on his records ‘All Of You Heart’ co-written with Alexander Burnett (Hayden James, Flight Facilities, Elderbrook) and ‘Bad Moon’ featuring singer song-writer Kameron Alexander (Illeniumm, A$AP Rocky, Frank Ocean), which gained him a plethora of radio support across the global, with regular plays from the likes of triple j, BBC Radio 1, Sirius XM, Nexus and Groove Radio. ‘Wide Open’ is out now via Tinted Records, get your first listen below!
