Alvin Risk – JUNKFOOD EP

Alvin Risk - JUNKFOOD EP

When you’re looking for something WAAAYYY off the beaten path, look no further than the man Alvin Risk. The OWSLA product is guaranteed to put your ears through an experience unlike anything they’ve been through before with every listen. This latest 4 track JUNKFOOD EP varies all different styles and tempos and is available for free download through his website.

The frantic glithcy DnB paced TR0NCE is sure to leave you absolutely disoriented (in the best way), while the vocal-chop infused opener ZOOM! breaks down into driving chromatics that will have any crowd moving uncontrollably. The good ole fashioned dubstep sonic onslaught of WASH DAT is a perfect contrast to the screamo influenced tracks like PUT EM UP sound more like The Refused than “EDM”. The full project is 100% worth the download and listen, it’s artists like this that will keep moving the genre moving forward.

Alvin Risk – SKYCLAD

There are few people that are as interesting to me like OWSLA’s very own Alvin Risk. The only way I can think to describe his previous releases is frenzied but his latest single SKYCLAD is a wild departure from what I was expecting. The first surprise came after he sang backup for Zedd on The Late Show when I realized that Alvin Risk sings on his own tracks, something that you don’t see all too often but I respect a lot. Rather than the psychotic energy of tracks like Survival, this track is absolutely beautiful while still retaining his signature aggressive breakdowns.

When you’re looking for that guy that’s poised to do it bigger and better than anyone else, look to OWSLA’s upcoming superstar Alvin Risk. His music has always been erratic and aggressive to me and with the preview of his newest track SKYCLAD, you can add beautiful and layered to the list of adjectives. To only accentuate the talent of the kid with the thick-framed hipster specs, he sings on his own tracks and you can see him singing backup for Zedd during his performance on The Late Show. Preorder the track on iTunes as I most definitely did after hearing the preview so you can get the full release on 3/5 right here!

Skrillex Ft. Alvin Risk – Imma Try It Out (Unreleased)

Skrillex & Alvin Risk- Imma Try it Out

Almost a year ago “Imma Try It Out” was played by Alvin Risk, and although originally thought to be a solo release, it turned it was a collaboration with Skrillex. Months later, it was featured in the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 video game, although wasn’t on the soundtrack. The version featured in the game was a lot different then the individual and we can only hope that this song will see a real release; like much of the music made by Skrillex, it’s always up in the air. For now we can just add this to the list of Skrillex Unreleased Music. Skrillex even released a snippet of a VIP remix of the song in early January, which I personally think is unbelievable. Check out all the versions below, and lets hope for a release one day.

Skrillex Confirms New Album Due Out Summer 2013

Skrillex Confirms New Album Due Out Summer 2013

On January 24th Skrillex played a re-scheduled show at New City Gas in Montreal along with Alvin Risk. It was his first time touring in two weeks, and decided to test out some new tracks. Then towards the end of the concert he announced ” this is the last time you’ll hear this song until i come back with my new record in the summer.” He recently announced on a live stream (only for Nest members) that he won’t be touring for the next 5 months- in order to focus on making and producing new music. Looks like he’s keeping true to his word. Definitely something to get excited about and look forward to.
