OWSLA veteran, josh pan is known for his snarky online persona and versatile musical offerings. From his sprawling remix of “IT G MA” to his recent indie-leaning collaborative album with Dylan Brady, pan’s work is nothing if not emotional. Showcasing one of the more cinematic points of their album, josh pan & Dylan Brady have released a new music video for their track “My Own Behavior.”

The video serves as a prequel to their recent “Wheels” video, adding a narrative thread to the album. Staying in line with the album’s themes of seeking truth and meaning, the video is yet another piece of pan & Brady’s ever-expanding artistic portfolio.

OWSLA‘s josh pan continues to prove himself as an unstoppable force bound by no musical limits. Establishing his initial sound in heavy-hitting bass production but quickly showcasing his shapeshifting artistry from trap to house to lofi-esque beats, pan’s latest production foray into the indie realm should come as no surprise, but still defies all expectation. Teaming up with Mad Decent artist and pop producer Dylan Brady on the collaborative full-length project This Car Needs Some Wheels, josh pan once again reinvents his brand and subtly flexes his versatility as an ever-growing artist.

This Car Needs Some Wheels has many faces, and the only semblance of each track to the next is their minimalist stripped-down foundation. The album’s overarching broodiness makes sense in the context of pan opening up about his vulnerability and his human loneliness in an exquisitely raw form permeate tracks like “Past Lives” and “Save the World.”

“I was self-medicating a lot during this time, really depressed, and towards the end of writing the album, I realized I could be happy, that I don’t just have to hide in myself, and that I could totally depend on and trust other people again,” pan told Nest HQ.

A true concept album, This Car Needs Some Wheels expresses complexity in both themes and musicality from electronic artists that lend increasing credibility to the industry’s growing crossover territory.

Watch Josh Pan turn into a snake in visual conveyance of ‘Undefeated’

“Undefeated” and its lively, optimistic atmosphere is already built to stay stuck in its audience’s head. Off Josh Pan‘s latest EP, the world within, the lyrical tune shows off his true musicality while serving up an encouraging message of finding inner peace. Its video has finally arrived following a confusing social media campaign, and its plot is certainly as attention-grabbing as the song itself.

We see the protagonist, Pan, just getting into a good space following a breakup, after which he catches a strange ailment that causes him to turn reptilian. Certainly a bizarre plotline, but one that speaks to the song’s overall motif of learning to accept and be happy in the present, no matter what sorts of “lemons” life might present. The video thus far has earned rave reviews from Skrillex and others in the OWSLA camp and beyond.

OWSLA knows how to pick outside-the-box artists. Their regular signee, josh pan, is an embodiment of this curatorial edge. He’s most known for his bassier, high-octane productions, but has proven himself equally effective in other realms, like hip-hop, deep house, and more. Now, he caps off the year with even more broken ground, exploring an even more stripped-down, chilled aesthetic in a four-piece EP titled the world within.

Pan opens the project with a breezy, indie-esque number with buttery falsetto and lo-fi sound design. These themes carry over into the other tracks of the EP; ultimately, however, each track stands completely on its own outside this bond. “take your time,” for example, is a smoother number that errs more on the contemporary R&B side, while “overdue’s” cinematic elements make it feel like it came out of a film soundtrack. Once again, the low-end star proves he knows how to evolve as an artist and remain on the cutting edge.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

How many flips of ZHU‘s “Faded” is too many? The limit does not exist! I’m always intrigued to hear new takes on this monumental 2016 release. Tiny Elephant gathers momentum quickly in the introduction he’s built, leading up to a dramatic bass drop in the chorus. He’s filtered the original’s vocals in the chorus in a unique way, bolstering the song’s backbone with a pounding house beat. This sensational remix is perfect for those who can’t get enough of the original, as it maintain’s ZHU’s ever-present dark atmosphere.

In his most recent effort, josh pan teams up with AWAY for an eerily melancholy OWSLA release, “Mask.” This trapped-out bass collaboration is highlighted by pan’s sinister vocals, which are ushered in by a plinking piano introduction. The duo hold nothing back in this release, creating a jarring environment that yanks the listener back and forth between more traditional trap elements and stuttered, unpredictable vocal and beat chops.

After making his Monstercat debut earlier this summer, CloudNone has quickly proven himself to be a valuable asset to the Canadian label. His chilled-out take on modern electronic music is perfect for the winter months and is filled with lush soundscapes and subdued vocals. CloudNone has expertly captured the wistful sounds of the season with the union of instrumentals and minimalist percussion. The song is out now as a part of Monstercat’s latest Rocket League compilation.

A.M.R.’s Silver Lining EP kicks off with a gorgeous intro mix of the collection’s title track. This six-and-a-half-minute venture is built around a subtle house beat, but A.M.R.’s introduction of elements like piano and children singing tucks the bass into the background and allows for the melody to shine through. Strings, too, many an appearance, elevating the “Silver Lining” intro mix to a whole new level.

As we settle into colder months, songs like Steve Brian‘s latest are perfect for brightening up a dreary winter day. “Playa de Santiago,” out as part of Enhanced Chill Vol. 5, brings blissful beats and a cheery piano melody that’ll light up any room. Brian has painted a vivid soundscape of rich, resounding synths, layered to perfection. The breaks and variation in percussion keep this song alive throughout its seven-minute entirety.

Josh pan and AWAY have returned to OWSLA for a new video and single release. The hype around “Mask” has slowly been building online, with rumors reaching fever pitch around the collaboration in the weeks leading up to this release. The final product is something that takes us back to Halloween, with ominous, eerie production that sounds like it came from the underworld.

Not only now is this record out at long last, but the team has additionally unveiled a coordinating video to compliment its dark production. Animated by Sam & Andy Rolfes, the video features motion capture work that blurs reality, 2D and 3D across psychedelic visuals. The release of “Mask” shows signs of a longer release coming from josh pan sometime in the indeterminate future, continuing along his 2018 release streak.

Subtlety has always been a virtue for josh pan. Starting out his career under full-shrouded mystery, he has built a following releasing music that follows no rules, except the expectation of quality under any circumstance. His latest is a perfect example of such diligence, as the producer continues to flesh out his style in 2018. “VOOM” is his first original release of the year, seemingly long-awaited after he teased its arrival over social media.

Veering away from his harder bass sounds of the past, “VOOM” sees josh pan enter a new era with stripped down production that focuses on a few key elements that on their own are compelling, but together, are mesmerizing. Keeping hip-hop an ever-constant in his music inspiration, josh pan’s work on “VOOM” is precise as ever for an artist known for perfection.
