Ford. Reworks ODESZA's 'Thin Floors And Tall Ceilings' For 'A Moment Apart' Remix LP: Exclusive

Ford and ODESZA

ODESZA and ford.

A Moment Apart was more than just ODESZA's third album. It was the LP that skyrocketed the Seattle duo to a full-fledged arena act. The corresponding tour, with all it's high-powered production and energetic drum line, perfectly complimented the emotional breadth of the duo's shimmering catalog. It's an album worth celebrating, and while it got a deluxe edition release in November, and today, it goes even further with a cool hand-picked remix collection.

"We wanted to handpick some of our favorite producers and friends to re-contextualize songs off of A Moment Apart," ODESZA tells Billboard Dance in a joint statement. "A lot of the tracks on this package weren’t the main singles which led to some awesome reinterpretations. We’re really impressed with the ability of each of these artists to have made it their own and can’t wait for everyone to hear them too.”

Foreign Family Collective member ford. gives us the lead single from the package. He reworked the soft and tender "Thin Floors and Tall Cielings" into a clippy, melodic dance offering. A steady beat gives the deep album cut a bouncier rhythm, turning it from a mellow piano ballad into an introspective house jam. 

“I’ve always been a fan of Harrison and Clay‘s work since I was in middle school," ford. says. "It was an honor to have the chance to put my own spin on a song from an album that was and still is a personal favorite of mine. As an artist, I just hope I did the song justice.”

The full remix package is out Friday, Feb. 15, but you can listen to ford.'s remix of "Thin Floors and Tall Ceilings" a day early below, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
