Premiere: Massimiliano Pagliara – Midsummer’s Dreams


Oddysee release their first charity sampler for the Sinchi Foundation.

Focus is a funny thing. How I don’t have it all day, how it’s all I have at night. How when you stare at a field of sunflowers you can either choose to zoom into the sinuous details of a breathing petal, or you can adjust your gaze to notice the swarm of bees pollinating the fruits of earth. Subtle in their movements and blurred to your eye, their interactions are alive with virtuosity, a family of caretakers ruminating before the dusk sky.


Berlin-based producer and DJ Massimiliano Pagliara offers us the undeniable sentiments and sounds of summer in his latest infectious dance track ‘Midsummer’s Dreams’ released via Oddysee. The acid-house number boasts phasing and whirling synths that break out into a high-energy house beat with a pounding kickdrum to match. Further along the track we are graced with a jazz piano melody and digi-flute, all working together against the acid bass to transport us straight onto summer dancefloors; feet in the sand and arms over friends.

In the first 18 months since its inception, Oddysee has already worked with a fantastic array of artists on their event series including Ciel, Fantastic Man, Midland and Lena Willikens amongst others. Come Mid-November they will launch their label with a first vinyl and digital sampler with 100% of vinyl proceeds being donated to supporting First Nations people across the globe via the Sinchi Foundation.
