ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective and leading independent label Ninja Tune have officially teamed up on releases, promotion, and distribution.


In the wild world that we’re currently living in, it is more important than ever before for artists, brands, and labels in the scene to work together and continue their growth. That’s exactly what ODESZA and Foreign Family Collective (FFC) had in mind as they look to Ninja Tune for a new beneficial partnership that intends to help expand their reach around the world.

Starting this month, Foreign Family Collective and Ninja Tune will put their minds together and soar to even greater heights after years of close collaboration. Previously working together on releases like ODESZA’s A Moment Apart album, which helped propel the duo to the top of the dance music scene, this longstanding relationship has now been further cemented with this news. Moving forward, Ninja Tune will assist with forthcoming releases on FFC while also lending a hand on the promotion and release front.

Partnering with Ninja Tune to continue to expand and evolve our vision for FFC is a dream come true. Ninja Tune served not only as an inspiring template for us when we were starting the label, but also a label home and creative partner that has fostered and inspired us since the release of our album “In Return” in 2014. To be able to bring our team at FFC into an even closer dialogue and partnership with the hardworking and innovative team at Ninja Tune is a privilege and we can’t wait to see what amazing things we can achieve for the artists we love that are part of FFC.

Foreign Family Collective has seen loads of success as of late by unleashing a number of fantastic releases from artists both established and rising through the ranks alike, a collection of NFTs, and plenty more. Ninja Tune has seen similar success over the past three decades with their own vast range of releases from artists in styles ranging from house and techno to indie dance.

“Everyone who works in this industry is, or should be, chasing that indescribable feeling that only music can provide. We experienced that the first time we heard ODESZA’s music and we’ve experienced it every step of the way subsequently during our long and successful partnership,” said Maria Clausen, Head of Ninja Tune North America and Head of Global Streaming. “To collaborate with them as they seek out that feeling and grow their label and story is truly an honour.”
