Coming just a little while after Quality Goods Records’ compilation release is “Killa” from bass artist Oski. He is currently on tour across both Australia and New Zealand, and this release will go off in any set he plays out. “Killa” once again utilises Oski’s keen eye for a sharp melody – creating strong basslines

Travis Stewart, better known as Machinedrum, is a groundbreaking DJ/producer whose manic, break-beat inspired style of bass music has established him as one of the most scintillating and sought after artists in the current landscape of dance music. Recently, Quality Good Music records enlisted Stewart as one of the many artists to feature on an upcoming remix project for UZ‘s Layers LP. Machinedrum completely took off the gloves with his reimagining of UZ’s already raucous track “Inferno.”
In its original iteration, ‘Inferno,’ which features Craze and Oski, trembles with modulated bass growls and wicked rolling hi-hats. True to form, Stewart completely revitalizes “Inferno” with imaginative and aggressive composition. Cacophonous percussive elements collide brazenly with rattling basslines as the remix raises the original banger to another level.
This white-hot remix is ready for download now via Quality Good Records.
Following on from the huge success that was his Kid Chrome EP, bass maker and DJ Oski, who hails from Sydney, is back for more this week. Having carefully teased fans with snatches from his Kid Calamity collection, the full record is now out through Quality Goods Records. Spread out hazily across four tracks, Oski
Oski is an artist who has made a real impact with every bit of material he has released so far. His latest efforts for UZ’s Quality Goods Records make no exception, and the Kid Chrome EP is essential listening for any bass fan out there.
Growing stronger and more confident in his production style since the early days of his popular bootlegs, this creator has put together four tracks for this release. It moves seamlessly between the rugged, earth-shattering low end sounds of ‘Super Hot’ and ‘On Fire’ (made with label mater Ian Munro and featuring bossman UZ), to the more refined cuts of ‘Tell Her’ and ‘Flex’.
There is some seriously strong ideas strewn throughout this selection, and we urge you to check it out. You can do so by heading here.
I’ve been covering IRIS Presents events for about two years now, yet their endless drive to support fresh talent still surprises me. Being a longtime follower of the EDM industry, I’ve always seen an almost cult-like obsession with headliners as opposed to raw talent. IRIS exhibits the complete opposite, which is perfectly exemplified by their showcase with Oski, Tropkillaz, and Sunday Service.
Being the most recent IRIS event I attended, I thought it’d be perfect to describe the absolute madness they provide each and every weekend. If you haven’t heard of Oski, his mind-boggling combination of trap percussion and dubstep screeches are sure to make you question the bounds of reality.
His live set somehow surpassed my expectations, as he played his hardest tracks alongside the likes of HeRobust, Mr. Carmack, Troyboi, and RL Grime, showing that you can never have too much filth in one set. It honestly proved to be the best set I’ve heard in a really long time, so I strongly suggest you see an Oski show as soon as humanly possible.
Tropkillaz murdered the crowd per usual, but my analysis on their performance will be borderline non-existent. The trap and twerk slinging duo gets a ton of exposure from their superstar-tier following, so I’d like to focus on the up-and-coming talent – like Oski and Sunday Service. Sunday Service closed out the night with an unforgettable set, unleashing relentless dubstep tracks one after the other with no regard for the safety of the subs. Even the IRIS CEO declared the Service duo his favorite of the night on Facebook, stating that they absolutely brought the house down. The most memorable part of their set had to be the transition of an unreleased Snails track into their gargantuan dubstep collab, Run It.
In case it wasn’t clear, IRIS Presents proved once again that it has an insane knack for showcasing raw, uncorrupted talent. It makes complete sense that Atlanta can’t stop buzzing about Imagine Music Festival at the end of this month, as people are starting to realize that something huge is in the making.
