French live trio, Oden & Fatzo officially release “Lauren” via B1 Recordings/SME Germany/RCA Records. Listen HERE. Oden & Fatzo consists of three people, the electronic live duo Oden, and house DJ Fatzo, who, through mere coincidence starting creating music together a while back, and thus discovered the explosive energy that is released when they perform as a group of three.
The track came about when Fatzo’s dad wanted to know the difference between an edit and a remix, as the DJ explains: “… To show him, I took a song from a band my ex-girlfriend listened to (Men I Trust) and sped it up and added a drum beat and violin. After playing it to Oden, they loved it, and in turn, added their secret ingredients.”
In November 2020, a bootleg version of this edit was uploaded to the YouTube channel of the electronic music label Novaj, kicking off an unforeseeable wave of enthusiasm. Completely organically, that video of Oden & Fatzo’s edit is now steadily approaching the 2 million mark, leaving enthralled listeners in the comments begging for a commercial release.
With its captivating beat and nostalgic catchiness, “Lauren” by Oden & Fatzo makes up for all the party nights lost to the pandemic lockdowns, and sees people dancing in their homes and on the streets, as concerts, parties, and live sets are finally celebrating a slow return. As the trio puts it: “This song was all about hope, freedom and a party atmosphere at a time when you couldn’t go anywhere. We think it gave everyone who heard it a little bit of an escape, including us.”
