ODESZA, the Pacific North West-based production duo consisting of Harrison Mills (Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches), just released an inventive new EP, My Friends Never Die, as a follow-up to their debut album, Summer’s Gone. Once again, the duo has created a purely original array of sun-soaked, soulful hip-hop grooves accented by glittering melodies and fine tuned vocal samples.
ODESZA now offers up a special GDD™ Guest Mix to supplement their new release. With the inclusion of their own tracks and others from Vindata, TEED, Bonobo, Djemba Djemba, and Kaytranada, among others, they’ve put together some great listening material for you all to enjoy.

Over the past two years, I’ve had the pleasure of attending The Do LaB‘s famed transformational festival known as Lightning in a Bottle, and each time it was truly an indescribable experience unlike any other. With new dates falling in the heat of Summer and an unfamiliar venue situated in a desert environment, this year’s festival underwent a significant amount of change in certain aspects, but its fundamental anatomy remained as artistic, conscious, purposeful, and spiritually vibrant as ever – exceeding my expectations and providing for yet another phenomenal weekend.
Through hosting an extensive lineup of some of the most in-demand musicians, DJs, speakers, yoga instructors, and artists, among many other performers and participants, Lightning in a Bottle has once again exemplified why it has gained such prestige as a world-class event that draws thousands from far and wide. After the jump, I’ll run through my thoughts on the new venue/atmosphere, my top 3 performances, late-night happenings, other highlights, and some photos to give you a better visual perspective of the festival.
