Foreign Family newcomer obli debuts blissful two-track release, ‘Recourse / Hold You’
Foreign Family Collective is among the dance music industry’s most highly regarded labels—just like it’s founders, ODESZA. Not just because of ODESZA’s sheer star power, or their ear for tastemaking music trends even, but because of the roster of artists who’ve released on the label. With a roster of immensely talented trendsetters, including RÜFÜS DU SOL, Louis Futon, Big Wild, Jai Wolf, Chet Porter, and more, landing a spot in the family is a huge honor.
Foreign Family’s newest addition is Los Angeles producer, obli, who has just debuted his two-track release, recourse / hold you. Chocked full of light-hearted synth work, blissful ambiance, energetic drum kits, gentle vocal loops, and cinematic atmospheres, the two tracks really put a target on the newcomer as one-to-watch. Not only that, but it’s the quintessential sound that adds another dimension to the Foreign Family toy box. obli doesn’t seek to copycat or piggyback off of ODESZA’s sound. Rather, he crafts something uniquely his own that fits snugly into their broader sound movement.
