The deeper vibes are catching on to the heavy hitters. First Jack Beats “Beatbox”, Skrillex’s “F That” and now Zeds Dead has teamed up with Brooklyn indie-throb Twin Shadow. The product is hauntingly soulful – a jackin house groove carried by a devilish deep bassline. Don’t worry Zeds Dead fans, there’s still just enough bang in this one to keep you going… check it below!
Just earlier today, the queen Annie Mac debuted the new Jack Beats original “Beatbox” on her BBC Radio 1 show. We’re happy to hear another deeper groove from Beni G and Plus One, this one is favored for the club. Expect to hear this at SXSW and WMC, as it’s set for a March 18th release on the LA collective imprint OWSLA. Listen below and be on the lookout!

Supporting the night will be a special b2b set by CONTROL residents BONES and Sam Hiller, and a closing set by Mister Blaqk. *This event will reach capacity early, so please RSVP below and arrive before doors to guarantee entry!

Following their chart-topping collaborative EP release Careless, the infamous slime of duo Jack Beats has teamed up with label collective OWSLA once again with an evolved sound (that we’re really happy to hear). Off their forthcoming EP Somebody To Love, their first single off the release “Just A Beat” is a deeper and minimally executed (almost garage-like) production that still rings true to the signature Jack Beats sound we’ve all grown to salivate over.
The newest release on Skrillex’s dominating label project OWSLA features the massive production of Dream’s This Isn’t House Music EP. The original mix is anthemic and has already landed support from big guns Noisia, Magnetic Man, and even Skrilly himself. The full EP also features huge remixes from Topher Jones, LoBounce, and GDD pal Flinch, taking you on 4 rides of serious bass. Check out the original and remixes after the jump, and support OWSLA on Beatport!
