OWSLA just released today a compilation of new, exclusive tracks from friends and family featuring productions from some RCP heroes like Style of Eye, Alvin Risk, and Nick Thayer. The album is a clusterfucques of raging electro house and dubstep, with some moombahton and tech house included for good measure. Free music from Skrillex’s label showcasing some of the best up-and-coming production talent – you can’t complain. One nitpick, however, is that I’ve been waiting to hear the version of ‘Devastate’ that Style of Eye uploaded from a radio rip from Pete Tong – instead, we got some half-assed, earphone friendly version in the compilation. Not to worry, Style-fans, cuz the word is that the version we heard in the Pete Tong radio rip is his dub mix, and he’s “planning something special” for that. Stay tuned, and peep some of our favorite remixes below.
Zedd has come a long way. The first I’d ever heard of the guy, he was just a feature to support Skrillex on his EP, who himself was just starting to get his name out. Zedd’s first original release was a gimmicky electro update of the Zelda theme, which I found to be kind of unbearable. But following a slew of rowdy remixes and an absolutely EPIC release on Skrillex’s fledgling label OWSLA (I’m talking, of course, about Shave It), Zedd has dropped another banger on our unsuspecting heads. Sampling none other than youtube’s very own Winnebago Man, the track features an unorthodox beat that still goes as hard as any other. Here’s the youtube video Zedd sampled; catch the track after the jump.
My love of Skream has always been at odds with my love of good rager-music. While his stuff is generally as true to the origin of dubstep as one can be, it’s usually smoking music more than anything else. However, with his recent release on Skrillex‘s very own label OWSLA, Skream has proven that he can lay down the hype when he needs to. Expect a step away from the chilled out dub that Skream has been known to produce, and instead enjoy the Avicii/Swedish House Mafia styled uplifting synths before an epic spacey drop. Check out the track and a bonus remix (which is in my opinion better than the original) by Netsky after the jump.
