When Tiësto and The Chainsmokers put their heads together, they’re an unstoppable combo. With a beat that’ll get your blood pumping, and deep melody sampled from Ashanti’s 2005 original “Only U,” The Chainsmokers and Tiësto have come out with a huge track. “Split (Only U)” is their latest and greatest, and is now out on Musical Freedom.
Hints of a collaboration came out back in April, and the mystery track finally resurfaced during Tiësto’s Ultra Europe set. Both acts are known for their originality, with Tiësto’s legendary talent standing the test of time and The Chainsmokers’ meteoric rise, producing hit after hit. “Split (Only U)” distinguishes itself from typical big room, electro-house releases with its trap-like beats, upright bass and four-on-the-floor feel. This in line with the track’s deep, brassy melody makes for an irresistible dance-floor track that would feed energy to any crowd.

Incandescently gripping, Little Dragon is musical frisson, perfected. Coupled with ODESZA‘s anthemic overture, “Light” is dazzling, spiritual. Their effortless synergy proving that ambient electronic can’t get any better. The stabilizing bass, airy falsetto, and cohesive movement throughout the piece mesh brilliantly. This is clearly the winning collaboration. Lyrically beautiful, “Light” is an otherworldly love story scored to dream-sequence, “floating on a feather, landing on forever”.
It may not speak to everyone, but it shouldn’t be for lack of listening. And what’s most fascinating, is how it accidentally came to be. While on tour for their sold out In Return run across North America, ODESZA was asked to remix a song from Little Dragon‘s most recent album Nabuma Rubberband. They were sent the backing vocals for an unreleased track by mistake. Months later, they used those vocals to complete an entirely new single, “Light”, which serves as brilliant promotion for In Return (Deluxe Edition) dropping September 18th. With appearances at Bonnaroo, Coachella, Governor’s Ball, and Lollapalooza, ODESZA is growing exponentially brighter, quickly and efficiently.
