Blood Diamonds -Barcode ft. Dominic Lord (Figure Remix)

Barcode (Figure Remix)

Blood Diamonds released a new EP off OWSLA’s label the other day. I did not find the EP to be all that great. It was one orignal song titled “Barcode,” while the rest of the EP consisted of remixes from a wide array of artists. I found most of the songs to be quite boring to be honest. Not the best OWSLA release, but something different for sure. The one gem in this EP to me was Figure’s remix of Barcode. Usually a song that has any type of rap in it isn’t my style, but figure but a nice hard twist on the song. Figure’s style is pretty consistent for the most part, and in this remix he featured some sped up vocals, and multiple voice distortions and funky hard beats. While the drop is very sped up and intense, there are moments in this song that are very soft and soothing. Just when you feel the song undergoes a calmness to it, the words AK47 come piercing back, and heavy sounds of Figure come about once again. It reminds of me drops in a roller coaster that you didn’t see coming. It is surprising but also very exhilarating. Definitely a very different kind of song for me to post, but this song really caught my attention, and I’m sure it will catch yours.

Alvin Risk – SKYCLAD

Alvin Risk - SKYCLAD pic

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.

Kill Paris – To A New Earth EP

Kill Paris - To A New Earth EP

I really was trying not to do any posts tonight with this test tomorrow and all but this was just too much to ignore. We finally have gotten the unveiling of the latest release out of Skrillex’s OWSLA imprint courtesy of the panty dropping sensual sounds of Kill Paris. We’ve followed his ascension into the highest ranks of the electronic music scene with his R&B and bass influenced sounds that capture a niche previously left vacant. The three original tracks ooze of Corey Bakers magic touch and all the stops were pulled out when accumulating remixes; stars like GRiZ, Gramatik and Candyland all offered a hand in making this a monstrous EP amongst others. The original title track is my personal favorite at the moment so grab the full release on Beatport and enjoy the funk!

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!

The M Machine – Metropolis Pt. II

The M Machine - Metropolis Pt. II

There’s nothing cooler to me personally than when artists try to push sonic barriers. Rather than creating the same sound or going after the same motif as everyone else, The M Machine has never settled for what is already in front of them. Their first album Metropolis Pt. 1 was an absolute game-changer for me and this album stands to do more of the same. The songs range all over the place like blistering, dark and gritty tracks like Moon Song to the aggressive and empowering Schadenfreude but no matter what there seems to be an element of noir to their songs. They really encapsulate a cinematic element available in electronic music and it works so well for their whole aesthetic. Metropolis Pt. II is a true evolution in sound from the San Fransisco based trio and represents yet another successful release out of Skrillex’s OWSLA label.

Kill Paris – Slap Me (GRiZ Remix)

Kill Paris - Slap Me (GRiZ Remix)

You had to know this was coming. Future funk fans rejoice, GRiZ got a hold of a track from the To A New World EP, the upcoming OWSLA debut for Kill Paris and it is everything you could’ve possibly hoped for. As I continue cleaning out my library of all the tracks this week that I forgot to post, I couldn’t ignore the signature bass slapping and wailing synths of a GRiZ production. It’s amazing how quickly and accurately Skrillex and the rest of his OWSLA label evaluate and facilitate the growth of the talent in this burgeoning scene. This To A New World EP is definitely one of my most anticipated releases coming in the near future; if nothing else it will only serve to solidify Corey Baker amongst the best of the best.

Showtek & Noisecontrollers – Get Loose [Out Now]

Showtek & Noisecontrollers – Get Loose

Amazing, epic, wonderful, hard-hitting, banger. All words that can be used to describe this upcoming song “Get Loose,” but none of them would do it justice, which i don’t say too often. Showtek & Noisecontrollers might not be the biggest out there like Tiesto, Prydz, Skrillex, etc, but this song will send them flying through the ranks. Not a usual sounding song from these artists, which sort of confused me. Then i was informed that this song will in fact be released on OWSLA’s label. A very big shock since Showtek has never been associated with OWSLA in any sense, and has had songs come out on labels such as Spinnin’ Records. This song has the combinations of multiple genres of electronic music. It is really something special. If you like house you’ll love it. If you like dubstep if you’ll love it. It now makes sense why this song would be released on OWSLA’s label. It’s just something different and that’s what OWSLA is best at. If you’re looking for diversity be sure to check out all of OWSLA’s artists. No info on the release date yet, but this long radio rip will do for now.

UPDATE: Full release out now! Buy it on Beatport now!

Teddy Killerz – Toys Riot EP

Teddy Killerz - Toys Riot

OWSLA‘s label just doesn’t stop pumping out releases. It’s new release intially exclusive off The Nest is the Toys Riot EP. This is an all trap EP done by Teddy Killerz and although they usually produce dubstep, they decided to change it up. This Ep is definitely a dark side of trap, and is very enjoyable if you’re a big fan of the genre. Nothing that i would kill for, but an EP that should be heard. This is Teddy Killerz first release on OWSLA’s label. Hopefully we will hear some new dubstep from them in the future. It is now excluisively available for purchase on beatport here.

You can listen to all tracks by clicking the link below.

Kill Paris – Tender Love

As far as I’m concerned, Kill Paris is in a league of his own. Pulling samples from the 80’s eponymous slow jam by The Force M.D’s, Corey Baker is sure to get panties dropping with this fat-bassed dropstep jam fit for any late night adventures one may be having. It should come as no surprise that Skrillex’s OWSLA label has already scooped up this unbelievable talent for the label tour and as Jon Bellion once said, “This track’s too sexy I think I might just call a friend and see where the night goes.” Amen.

Kill The Noise & Feed Me – Thumbs Up (For Rock N’ Roll)

Wow. I haven’t heard something this unique in a while and we can all thank a collaboration between Kill The Noise and Feed Me. Utilizing a YouTube clip has worked well for Porter Robinson and Dillon Francis & Doctor P and it seems like these two have used this one to perfection. This track’s got some funkk at 112 bpm its in no way moombah but it’s got that comfortable flow which I love.
