Detroit duo Gosh Pith blend genres as well as anyone, and their new single “Gold Chain” is a trap-tinged, guitar-soaked 21st century love ballad that is both emotionally resonant and club ready.
They describe the track as “a ratchet love song about the constant conflict between the meaningful and the meaningless,” and that description is certainly fitting.
The duo dropped a stellar EP (Window) earlier this year, and have another project slated to drop at the top of 2016. They’ve already hit the road with acts like Vic Mensa and Odesza, so you’re going to want to have Gosh Pith on your radar before they become the next big thing.
The Mid-October Edition of Womp Womp Wednesday is here, and we got some absolute heat for your ears.
Hotlíne Blíng – Charlíe Puth x Kehlaní (DATHAN Flip) – Starting this week with an incredible flip of a “Hotline Bling” cover by DATHAN.

Everything ODESZA touches turns to gold. Since the Seattle-based duo blew the doors down and stormed onto the scene in 2014 with the release of their debut album, In Return, ODESZA has delivered stellar release after stellar release, including remixes for the likes of ZHU, RAC, and most recently Hayden James. In celebration of their biggest year to date, ODESZA will be releasing a deluxe edition of In Return in September, and they’ve unveiled the first new original that will be featured on the album last weekend titled, “Light.”
The deluxe edition of In Return will not only showcase an instrumental version of the album, but it will also feature live editions of “Bloom,” “IPlayYouListen,” and “Say My Name,” alongside their brand new track featuring Little Dragon, “Light.”
On “Light,” ODESZA’s signature, sparkling drum arrangements and synth sequences are out to play in full force, as Little Dragon’s lead vocalist, Yukimi Nagano, delivers a stellar vocal performance as soothing and ethereal as a mother’s touch. “Light” is classic ODESZA – shimmering melodies meets unrelenting beauty for a jaw-dropping result.

Not even bolstering winds and seasonal snowfall could deny the party at SnowGlobe last weekend. Despite only being in its fourth year, the 2014 incarnation of the Lake Tahoe music festival drew estimated crowds of 14,000 each day. Locals and out-of-towners were drawn to the EDM-heavy lineup and celebrated the New Year together with fresh powder, scrumptious food vendors, and of course, simply good music.
The festival, which spanned across three stages under the mountainous backdrop of Northern California, gave festival goers a face-melting way to ring in the 2015 to the tune of big and small EDM acts alike. Staples like Skrillex, Zedd, Porter Robinson and Flume were present, as well as up and comers like Bro Safari and Branchez.
Whether you (very sadly) didn’t make it to the festival or simply want to relive it (again and again), we got you covered with the best moments from each day of the musical winter wonderland below. Also, don’t forget to check out our 21-track SnowGlobe playlist for your aural pleasure.
The Best Moments of SnowGlobe Music Festival 2014
by Tia Nguyen
The Entire Bro Safari Set
Before his set even started, there was an obvious sense of energy that rippled through the crowd as the emcee pumped everyone up for the long night ahead. The tightly packed Sierra Tent waited in anticipation for Bro Safari to emerge, and the dedicated group of fans that trekked through the cold to see his performance didn’t come in vain. His killer set gave everyone a taste of the electric vibes that the rest of the night and the next few days would bring.
Disclosure’s Performance of ‘Latch’
With Disclosure’s addictively rhythmic tunes, the crowd found itself swaying along to every beat of the electronic duo’s tempo. But it was clear that everyone was eagerly awaiting ‘Latch’ as their closing song. Disclosure effortlessly united the crowd as everyone joined the two brothers to sing harmony, making the song easily one of the most unforgettable moments of the night.
The Energy During Skrillex’s Set
As Skrillex rounded out the end of the night, it seemed the crowd was ready to finish in high spirits, creating an atmosphere so full of energy that the frigid temperatures were completely forgotten. In fact, Skrillex’s own performance, complete with headbanging and climbing on DJ stands, had the sea of people in beanies and animal hats jumping around and feeding off of his excitement.
Odesza in the Sierra Tent
By the end of the night, the combination of heavy winds and the biting cold had many festivalgoers fleeing to the Sierra Tent for some much-needed warmth and the melodic rhythms that Odesza delivers. The duo’s electronic-pop fusions created an ambiance perfect for the end to SnowGlobe’s second night with a balance between smooth instrumentals and upbeat vocal tracks.
Porter Robinson Ditches the DJ Set
The 10 degree weather did not stop the die-hard Porter fans from coming to the Main Stage. Freezing winds pierced the many layers of hundreds of festival goers, but when Porter Robinson opened his set with Sad Machine, all was forgotten. His live performance at SnowGlobe was refreshing in the midst of all the DJ sets and constant rhythms, leaving the crowd in a trance with soundscapes unlike any of the other music on this year’s lineup.
The Entire Zedd Set
Zedd may have taken the crown as the best set of the entire festival. The light show alone was awesome enough to make his set one of SnowGlobe’s top moments. But what made his performance even better was how interactive he was with the crowd, getting everybody even more pumped than they already were for ringing in the New Year. Remix after remix of popular songs had the entire audience feeling ecstatic.
What So Not Brings the Heat
Typically after popular sets in the Sierra Tent, the crowd took in their last moments of warmth and ventured out into the more prominent outdoor stages. But What So Not delivered an unforgettable performance of his own. With songs like “You and Me” and “High You Are,” he kept the crowd energized the entire set and ready to go for Flume’s big finale on the Main Stage.
Flume’s ‘You + Me’ at Midnight
2014 saw the year of Flume’s rise as one of electronic music’s biggest names, and with the midnight slot on New Years Eve, he attracted the biggest crowd of the entire festival. ‘Insane,’ ‘On Top,’ and ‘Drop the Game’ as the first few songs were only the buildup to Flume’s epic midnight countdown, which was appropriately followed by a remix of his biggest hit “You + Me,” an epic fireworks show, and New Year’s kisses all around. There was no better way to welcome 2015 than with Flume.
There may not be a better way to ring in the New Year than attending SnowGlobe Music Festival, situated in scenic South Lake Tahoe, to the tune of Disclosure, Flume, Porter Robinson, Skrillex, and Zedd serving as major headliners. The EDM scene has equally dominated charts and fests in 2014, so SG seems like a natural cap to a year driven by DJs.
The most rowdy set should be Flume, with the Aussie-native shutting down the Main Stage as the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve. Skrillex and Porter Robinson will get similar nods on Friday and Saturday, respectively, so who else should you be seeing on Tahoe’s snowcapped mountains?
If you find yourself at SnowGlobe come this year’s end, make sure to check out these other fantastic acts that aren’t headliners.
7. Bro Safari
When he says “bro,” you say “safari.” Bro! Safari!
Stretch appropriately for B’s brand of smooth, melodic trap.
Their falsetto makes all the girls soon.
Catchy beats, chill melodies, and poppy hooks. What’s not to love?
3. Flux Pavillon
FP will be sure to bust out hyper synths and a busy light show.
A wildcard in a fest lined with EDM artists, but don’t sleep on this hip-hop duo. This will be a party.
Phantogram’s bouncy production and seductive vocals will have you feeling some type of way.

ODESZA, fresh off their album release ‘In Return‘, have just released a dope remix of ‘A Heartbreak’ by Angus & Julia Stone. This Seattle Duo doesn’t seem to sleep in 2014 as it seems they keep churning out anthems left and right. Excited to see the music careers of ODESZA take off, and am curious to see what magic they will produce next.

ODESZA just gave ZHU’s Faded the remix treatment, and it’s craaaaaaazy. Definitely a 180 switch from ZHU’s original work. Both are great, and should be equally enjoyed. Below is the original, and the remix for comparison.
Below are the remaining tracks off of his stellar debut EP, Nightday.
