What does Alex Metric, Aeroplane, and UZ have in common? The next OWSLA release – Ammunition Pt. 2
The London-based Alex Metric saw a massive response earlier in the year for his chord-stabbing anthem ‘Rave Weapon’, gaining widespread support and the attention of Skrillex and his collective label OWSLA. They’ve teamed up together to release the remix EP, boasting three stunning remixes from the Italo maestro Aeroplane, the mysterious UZ, and Dirtybird newcomer Mark Starr – you couldn’t ask for a better trifecta of difference.
*The EP is due out December 3rd worldwide, and also features the original mix plus (2) new originals ‘Prophecies’ and ‘Motion Study’. Check them all out below!

Webster Hall continues to be one of my favorite venues in New York City and this past Friday was no exception. After getting word that there would be a secret guest I made my way over to the historic club and hoped for an interesting night. With a line-up consisting of Crizzly and Alvin Risk and armed with the knowledge that Skrillex was in town, I prayed that I would finally get to witness a rare surprise Skrillex set like other GDD writers had seen before me.

I’m sure many could relate to feeling that Seven Lions was something truly extraordinary upon first listen. With his self-titled EP due out on OWSLA next Tuesday (10/16), he certainly won the heart of Skrillex and has received both support and collaboration requests from some of the most influential artists in dance music such as Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, and Paul Van Dyk, among others. We have the pleasure of premiering this Seven Lions mix that is a proper display of his visionary talent and unconventional style that is simply unparalleled. In just under one hour, he takes you through his multifarious selections which include his signature bass music tracks, blistering electro-house, and euphoric trance. We’ve also included a brand new track off of the EP, “She was ft. Birds of Paradise,” that is another showcase of his versatility as he ventures into the glitch-hop realm without diminishing his distinct vibe. Enjoy all of this music and spread the word, Seven Lions is just getting started.

It’s not exactly dance music, but it’s 100% music worth listening to. Don’t let the “OWSLA” in the title trick you, this is far from anything you’d expect to come out of the Skrillex camp. And you know what, that’s why Sonny Moore is becoming increasingly hard to hate. Those still ignorant enough to spew their constant vitriol his way are obviously ignorant of his gracious acceptance speech(es) at the Grammy’s, his humble and endearing personality, his appreciation of and efforts to push his more mainstream leaning legion of fans to embrace more obscure electronic music (from Aphex Twin to Gesaffelstein), and now his endorsement of a beautiful, undefinable and timeless record like this Hundred Waters album.
I can see myself listening to this album in twenty years over a nice glass of wine accompanied by good conversation and better friends. It’s majestic, ambient yet stimulating, and it’s brought to you courtesy of… Skrillex? Mind-boggling I know, but it’s just one of the few reasons I can think of that the young Sonny Moore deserves his spot at the top right now.
Stream the album after the jump, and ask Siri to set a reminder for tomorrow, when the full album goes on sale via OWSLA. Just don’t try to have Siri spell “OWSLA”… Continue Reading
The roaring production of the mysterious WHIIITE has struck again – this time with a giveaway sinster moombahcore bootleg remix of Birdy Nam Nam & Skrillex’s “Goin In”, and his heavy-hitting official remix for Cypress Hill & Rusko’s “Shots Go Off.” I would say don’t sleep on these tracks, but after you listen you won’t be able to anyway. BOOM.
While I personally can’t stand to hear “Make That Booty Clap” one more time this year, there’s no denying the massive success it had across all genres of dance music in 2012. From Soul Clap to Skrillex, Kill Frenzy united the community with his rump-shaking masterpiece. Now, the Belgian follows up his debut EP on dirtybird with Go To The Mo — a 3-track EP which once again demonstrates Kill Frenzy’s ability to make dance music for all sorts. Bits of Breaks, Techno, Bass, and more can be heard throughout the 3 original productions, leading me to believe that Kill Frenzy has found a good home here in America with the eclectic dirtybird family. Go To The Mo is out today on Beatport and will be released worldwide on the 25th. √+Continue Reading
