Elohim makes her OWSLA debut, dropping a new track co-produced by Skrillex, “Connect,” with an accompanying music video. Combining Elohim’s emotive vocals with Skrillex’s signature vocal chop melodies and sharp drum production, “Connect” creates an uplifting atmosphere, lined by shimmering notes and warm harmonies. The LA-based singer/songwriter’s voice has an authentic feel and defined crispness that contrasts nicely with the OWSLA label head’s purposeful production style and vocoded accents. The music video is a perfect aesthetic fit to Elohim’s newest feel-good bop too.

Since releasing her self-titled debut album this year, Elohim has made major strides in 2018, building her catalog with collaborations alongside some of the most in-demand artists of the moment. She was featured on Louis The Child‘s Kids At Play EP; dipped into alternative rock with a feature on AWOLNATION‘s new single, “Table For One;” and REZZ remixed her and the Glitch Mob‘s “I Could Be Anything” from the group’s See Without Eyes Deluxe album. With her breakout year culminating in a new Skrillex co-sign, OWSLA could prove to be a fitting home for the emerging vocalist in 2019.

Anna Lunoe shines light on the scene’s latest club stompers with new HYPERHOUSE Livestream series

Anna Lunoe shines light on the scene’s latest club stompers with new HYPERHOUSE Livestream seriesAnna Lunoe Hyperhouse 1

The “High-heel Killer,” the “Midnight Thriller,” Aussie on the up-and-up, Anna Lunoe has just launched her very own live mix series dedicated to her longstanding brand of rambunctious, club-hailing dance music, HYPERHOUSE–the moniker under which Lunoe thoroughly toured the US in 2015-16.

Lunoe wields the hour-long mix to shed light on recent releases she finds particularly experimental and emblematic of “club culture,” a mission complemented by the slightly outlandish ’90s club footage projected on the green screen behind her. HYPERHOUSE Livestream 001 casts a wandering, nuanced net, within which the “Stomper” specialist pays homage to her deep-seated OWSLA digs, tossing Skrillex and JOYRYDE‘s anything but low-key latest, “Agen Wida,” in rotation. Lo-fi, garage-y, off-the-wall leanings run rampant, as Lunoe unloads on listeners with new material from Walker & Royce, Duke Dumont, and of course a bit of her own catalog, including her quirked-out dancefloor demonstration from this past summer featuring Born Dirty, “Badass.”

HYPERHOUSE met its making through Lunoe’s longtime hot seat on Beats 1, wherein she brought two hours of the most “exciting and inspiring” new music on the dance front under the microscope each week. Lunoe and team are uncorking a HYPERHOUSE mini-tour through the end of November, making stops in Brooklyn, LA, and Las Vegas, each fully loaded with a mystery special guest.

Alvin Risk and Hodgy release second single, ‘Precious,’ under alias, HA

Original member of the Odd Future rap outfit, Hodgy teamed up with OWSLA vet, Alvin Risk to create a collaboration alias named HA earlier this year. The debut of their new project came in the form of a single release, and now the duo have come out out with a second track titled “Precious.” HA’s output is much different than fans would likely expect of Risk, with his work under the alias exemplifying how starkly diverse his production abilities range.

Risk writes on his Twitter, “The song we’re putting out next resurrected me. So proud of Hodgy. Can’t believe we made this.”

A tropical drumline opens with Hodgy’s playful chanting cutting in and out of a Caribbean melody. The track is reminiscent of the Black Eyed Peas’s fervent, off-the-wall hip-hop sound during the peak of their popularity, and HA certainly brings something scrumptious to the table for both artists’ listeners.

Good Morning Mix: Ekali gives unknown Soundcloud producers a platform in newest episode of Awakening RadioEkali

The third session of Ekali‘s SiriusXM Insomniac Channel’s radio session called Awakening Radio has just landed, and this session is particularly unique. The Canadian producer states he hand selected most of the releases for the session from producers who have little to no SoundCloud following, yet are releasing fantastic music. For those who like discovering unknown and up and coming producers, this radio session is just the place.

The mix features a variety of ear-perking remixes and mashups of mainstream tracks with a side of enamoring originals. He of course sprinkles in releases of his own — aptly-timed, considering he’s currently on his Crystal Eyes tour in honor of the release of his full album of the same name. The next stop of his tour will be in Denver, Colorado, where he has two back to back shows on the 23 and 24. Ekali has been dropping unreleased OWSLA ID’s on his tour, most recently dropped Skrillex‘s collaboration with JOYRIDE before its full release.

One of the most anticipated electronic match-ups of 2018’s closing months, with compatibility ratings that leave Tinder’s in a shallow grave, Skrillex and JOYRYDE‘s “AGEN WIDA,” has landed—at long last.

Both EDM blue chips have been wielding the track’s jungle-themed savor to add a fan-friendly swelter to their sets for over a year now. With its spontaneous tempo switch-ups, offbeat vocal contortions, and delectably danceable four-on-the-floor framework, the collaborative delivery behind “AGEN WIDA” is a lesson in organic chemistry. While JOYRYDE has been touting his driving bass-house since spawning his solo project, Skrillex’s foray into house sensibilities more recently grew out of his now-omnipresent effort with Habstrakt on “Chicken Soup” from 2017’s HOWSLA compilation, catapulting his output since toward its current dock in heavy-house harbor.

The momentous new track comes as a precursor to JOYRYDE’s recently announced debut studio album, Brave, touching down November 30. Both OWSLA entities are set to take the stage at a slew of fall/winter festivals before the year is up, doubtlessly with “AGEN WIDA” in-hand.

Ekali road tests explosive Skrillex trap ID [Watch]Ekali Teases Skrille Trap Id

Skrillex hype fever is in full swing, and the prescription is more Skrillex hype. Thankfully, OWSLA label mate Ekali came through by unleashing a rumored Skrillex ID during Sunday’s tour stop on his Crystal Eyes tour. The unreleased trap heater called to mind past trap anthems from the producer like the “Purple Lamborghini,” with signature growls and blaring horn stabs filling out a slapping drop.

Reddit user u/Samwise78 caught a quick clip of the track’s build and drop while Ekali’s crowd basked in the ID. The song is rumored to feature vocals from fast-rising vocalist Dounia, who Skrillex was pictured with this summer. Music fans have eagerly awaited teasers of what to expect from the bass legend’s much anticipated new album, and if this and his upcoming collab with JOYRYDE are any indicator, it’s going to pack some serious heat.

With fan anticipation well past fever pitch, Skrillex news is beginning to pick up. Now, the OWSLA boss has teased a new collaboration with JOYRYDE via social media that will only add more fuel to the new Skrillex hype train. In a tweet, Skrillex posted a screen shot of his iTunes loaded up with track by himself and JOYRYDE titled “AGEN WIDA.” While it’s unclear whether or not the track is slated for the long-awaited Skrillex LP, the screen cap also contained an extra tidbit for music fans. Just a week after hinting strongly at a full length OWSLA LP, the “HOT DRUM” producer’s music in Skrill’s own music collection is shown with BRAVE as the album title.

While the exact details are still a little fuzzy, music fans have a double dose of goodness to look forward to, with a confirmed new Skrillex collab and a full JOYRYDE album. It’s looking like an explosive end of year for OWSLA, and liftoff can’t come soon enough for impatient fans.

Ekali releases inaugural EP, ‘Crystal Eyes,’ through OWSLA, Big Beat, and Atlantic [Stream Here]

It seems with a single stroke of his pen, Ekali has swiftly solidified his leafy emblem near the crest of the EDM pyramid.

Securing momentous slots at both Ultra and EDC this year the Canadian producer seeks to consolidate his efforts with the release of his first-ever multitudinous body of work, the Crystal Eyes EP.

For an inaugural EP, it would be hard for an artist in the electronic circuit to fathom a better threesome of label-housings than an OWSLA, Big Beat, and Atlantic trifecta; Ekali has managed to acquire exactly that for this watershed notch in his still rather formative release history. A frequent and well sought-after collaborator, the Canadian producer hosts a series of esteemed guests to help the listener navigate the glistening Crystal Eyes topography, including K. Flay, Medasin, Elohim, and SLUMBERJACK. The release will coincide with a North American tour, making stops across major musical hotbeds in the US and Vancouver.

Ekali uses the EP to first and foremost demonstrate his ability to wander spacious experimental sonic terrains while primarily keeping one foot grounded in pop sensibility. His track with K. Flay, for example, sees the producer wield the songstress’s notoriously moody pop vocals to accentuate his woefully drawn out guitar chords and wistful synth twinkling. At the other end of Ekali’s emotional rainbow, with exquisitely nuanced support from Medasin and Elohim, “Forever,” invites the listener inside its halcyon fortress of bouncy, beat-privy idealism. Crystal Eyes is a glimpse inside Ekali’s all at once flourishing and fragmented inner world. The EP functions terrifically as a hallmark of Ekali’s affinity for wide-reaching emotion, unfettered energy, and a perceptive level of adventurousness when it comes to his ever-evolving sound design.

 

Skrillex purportedly working on remix of Travis Scott’s ‘Sicko Mode’

New Skrillex music is not a matter of “if,” but of “when.” Audio engineer Randy Urbanski further fanned the flames of suspicion that Skrillex would release fresh material in the near rather than the distant future in his birthday tribute to Skrillex’s OWSLA label, which celebrated its seventh anniversary in early September. Urbanski’s comment that he couldn’t wait “till this guy [Skrillex] is back changing the game next month” provided an unofficial confirmation that the star producer would likely drop new music in October.

Skrillex’s recent Instagram story supposedly showed the producer at work on a remix of Travis Scott‘s “Sicko Mode.” Given Skrillex’s success with his 2017 rework of Kendrick Lamar‘s “Humble,” a Skrillex stamped take on Scott’s Astroworld staple certainly isn’t far fetched, nor is the likelihood that listeners would relish another electronic/rap hybrid remix from the OWSLA head.
