NO. SLEEP Mix. 12 by ODESZA is the soundtrack you need for a summer in isolation

Production duo Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, have been making music together since their college days at Western Washington University.

They began their journey in 2012 with Summer’s Gone, followed by 2014’s In Return, which debuted at the top of Billboard’s Dance/Electronic charts and featured gold single “Say My Name.” A remix of the track by RAC was later nominated for a Grammy in 2016.

Odesza have gone from ground zero to playing huge festival stages, all without the benefit of mainstream press or radio airplay. They’ve built their appeal through word of mouth and streaming, plus a unique live show featuring an 11-piece ensemble that includes a horn section, marching-band drumline, and stunning visuals.

My relationship with Odesza began 6 years ago on SoundCloud with the release of NO. SLEEP Mix. 01. The first mix quickly gained popularity and soon turned into a series.

Mix. 12, the duo’s first NO. SLEEP mix after roughly three years, running approximately one hour, is everything you need to get through a trying day working from home.

These mixes are a reminder of the power of music to bring people together even when we are apart. Please support small businesses, medical workers, and those who have lost their job amongst this outbreak as you are able. Now is the time for solidarity from a distance. Please stay home and stay healthy.
