We have the free download for you after the jump, as well as where to hear the entire EP first. ”Do Yer Thang” is reminiscent of TJR‘s dirty funk or maybe even Dirty Tennessee. Skrillex‘s OWSLA continues to reach– and deliver– for the future, with a range of talent that refreshes fans of bass, funk, and electro alike.
Seductive, funky, pounding; Kill Paris has released an EP of futuristic bass with a touch of french (and plenty of remixes). Out now on OWSLA, its kind of like digging through your parents’ Earth, Wind & Fire records with Skrillex and Koan Sound, in the future. Two free downloads and the full EP stream here.
