Ninja Tune and Odesza’s Foreign Family Collective label have announced a new partnership. The deal will see Ninja Tune release, promote and distribute FFC’s catalogue worldwide, similar to its partnership with Brainfeeder.

“Partnering with Ninja Tune to continue to expand and evolve our vision for FFC is a dream come true”, say Odesza’s Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight. “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”, they go on.

“As an electronic duo starting a label back in 2015 the parallels between what we sought to accomplish and what Coldcut had accomplished with the Ninja Tune orbital were plentiful – we literally couldn’t be happier to continue to learn more from such an experienced team”.

Head of Ninja Tune North America, Marie Clausen, adds: “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. To collaborate with them as they seek out that feeling and grow their label and story is truly an honour”.

“Ambition, talent and a shared ethos have characterised the process of working with Foreign Family Collective successfully on a number of projects already”, she continues. “Therefore it made perfect sense to extend the relationship to cover all FFC releases. We will now, together, be able to focus on amplifying growth for all FFC artists and ensure that the roster benefits from, and is empowered by, the trust and friendship that underpins the FFC/Ninja Tune relationship”.

Artists signed to Foreign Family Collective include Rüfüs Du Sol, Big Wild, Jai Wolf, Kasbo, Ford and Mild Minds.
