For the first time, ODEA—one of Dancing Astronaut‘s Artist to Watch in 2023—and Synymata are crossing collaborative lines. Featuring Donna Tella and backed by Insomniac’s fast-rising label NIGHTMODE, “Running Out” enters as part of a two-part label EP from the latter name, which is rounded out by a dueling B-side “You Hurt Me” with Delaney Kai and is a sonic brace of the soundscape he’s built out over the course of a timeline that dates back to as early as 2016.
“Running Out” at its core is an emotive future bass track that comes as a perfectly even split between two boundary-pushing producers, complimented by a sublime vocal from Donna Tella. And the crossover isn’t the first time that both ODEA and Synymata have me with NIGHTMODE, with “Running Out” marking a label reunion for each after “Streets” in 2020 and “Guilty” in 2022, respectively.
ODEA earned a nod into our forenamed artist class behind the strength of a potent 2022 that included official remixes for heavyweights like Said The Sky, Dabin, and William Black. And his succeeding year got off to a hot start with a second consecutive release on Lowly in the form of “Found You” alongside. VAUX. Listen to “Running Out” with Donna Tella via NIGHTMODE below
