SAGA-II the epic EP journey from MEMBA is out now!
The EP, a follow up to their debut collection ‘SAGA-I’ spans a total of seven tracks in length, and is paired with a 13 minute audio visual film ( watch below).
As MEMBA elaborates:
"After the filthiness that was SAGA-I, we decided to come back with something drastically different. The new EP offers 7 songs that convey life on SAGA-II, a planet of newfound awareness where people accept life and death as they are, using it to live better now. We feel that the best way to experience this place is to not only hear it but also see it… The SAGA-II film was shot all over the world, from India to New York to Seattle, and combined the efforts of a small army of visual artists. It tells the story of a relic from SAGA-II that accidentally arrives on Earth, connecting strangers in a shared moment of presence. This film is best when watched several times to find all the hidden connections."
We have been excited to share this project for a very long, we hope you enjoy it!
Brooklyn duo MEMBA are back with their latest single “Inevitable”. The emotive, introspective track is the third single from their upcoming seven track audiovisual EP titled SAGA-II, set for release this August via ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective. Defined by the simple yet anthemic lead synth line, “Inevitable” perfectly captures the full essence of the SAGA-II project.
“THE SONG IS ABOUT THE INEVITABLE END WE ALL FACE, AND HOW THIS CAN BE A MOTIVATOR TO LIVE BETTER NOW, RATHER THAN SOMETHING TO FEAR.”

Returning for her third FFC release EVAN GIIA’s new single “WHAT U NEED?” is out today. An anthem for the ages, the track features brilliant production and EVAN’s captivating vocals as she sings about leaving stress and anxiety behind, a sentiment that she experiences each time she performs the song.
Explaining the origins of the release’s striking artwork, EVAN GIIA says, “I had this vision of people writing down their worries, anxieties, doubts, frustrations onto a piece of white lined paper, crumpling it up and throwing it away into a big pile. A pile of the things that are holding people back from being in the moment. I brought that vision to life with my brother. We spent 4 days creating this mountain of paper with a structure under it so I could sit on it. 15 paper cuts later we created what I was envisioning in my head.”
Melbourne-based songwriter and producer Running Touch delivers a synth-laden house journey on his newly minted release. Titled “Make Your Move”, the heavenly slice of sonic romantics comes on the heels of his last FFC release “When I’m Around You” (praised by Pilerats for “compact production lush with subtle melodies”).
Running Touch explains that his newest “is born from a years long love/lust story. The wear that comes with being with someone you shouldn’t. Maybe even leaning into anything you know you shouldn’t want or doesn’t make sense at the time it’s in front of you.”
He goes on to say it’s “one of the fastest songs I would have got down...but to finish it took moving a lot of pieces...which in the end proved necessary,” before appraising his work as a whole; “This project is in what I feel is it’s most ambitious and natural phase. I feel like although I’m not wholly matured creatively...I’m taking the right steps to get there....Taking my music to other countries for the first time has proved so influential in what I want to do and how I want to do it, giving me a stronger vision for this project than ever before.”
Coming off of huge sets at Ultra Music Festival, Sundara, Coachella, and soon, Electric Forest, NY production duo MEMBA are back with their latest track ‘Walls Down’ featuring vocals from FFC label mate and breakout solo artist EVAN GIIA.
The trio takes a deeper dive into their darker sounds, exploring uncharted territory in a tune that showcases their unconventional approach to breaking through today’s electronic music landscape. Teased in both artists’ live shows this track has been a crowd favorite.
On ‘Walls Down’ the duo comment: “Walls Down took us a while because we wrote it twice. Initially it was much faster. We showed it to EVAN GIIA and she immediately understood the direction of the song. She wrote the lyrics and recorded the final version in a few hours. She recorded it as she usually does - in the bathroom. We usually retrack but there was this sauce in the original delivery that we just loved. Months passed. We both played the song at our shows. We were raving in the crowd at EVAN GIIA’s show one time and it just felt a bit eh. it wasn’t ever really a huge stand out for us production wise. So we decided to V2 it. We were deep in SAGA-II at this point. We started the entire thing from scratch with that mentality and were possessed to write the version you hear today.”
'Anachronism' the new EP from Robotaki is out now.

2000s indie pop, dance vibes all over this one. Robotaki’s 2nd single “Meant To Be” is out now!
In Robotaki’s own words:
‘Meant To Be’ is a track I wrote about all the people I’ve seen on the edge of either starting a relationship, or ending one. As a stubborn over-thinker myself, I’ve been on both sides of this and, in either situation, have always overly complicated things for myself. There’s a lot of unnecessary noise when you’re constantly wondering whether a person is the right one for you. This song is a reminder to just let these things happen, enjoy the moments you share with others, and be free.

Running Touch returns with his second FFC release “When I’m Around You” out now.
‘When I’m Around You’ is a short-story based record telling of the sweet-blooded unfinished intimacies, self-discovery and unearthed obsession. The story doesn’t start and end at the lyrics. There is a story behind every line that could be experienced outside music. “It’s the first instalment of a narrative I’m close to and the start of a new creative challenge,” says Running Touch.
Toronto-based producer Robotaki makes his Foreign Family Collective debut with his new single “All I Can Do” and announces his forthcoming EP Anachronism.
In Preston’s (Robotaki's) own words:
“All I Can Do is a song I wrote about finally coming to terms with the end of a relationship and saying goodbye to a part of myself that kept on holding on to the past. Sometimes you get so attached to the way you were with someone that when it’s suddenly over, you start asking questions that ultimately don’t have answers, or at least the ones that you’re looking for. Sometimes all you can do is move on.”
