The Summer of Skrillex continues with the LA-based super producer dropping off his next single, while both of his recently released Show Tracks still remain heavily on repeat. Skrill’s latest is a posse cut that finds him linked once again with TroyBoi, frequent collaborator Ty Dolla $ign, and dominating Brazilian forces Ludmilla and MC Lan on the long-teased “Malokera.” And, as per usual with Skrillex, it’s completely different than his other recent outputs—a knocking Brazilian funk framework polished by multilingual spits from Ty Dolla, Lan, and Ludmilla.

Skrillex and TroyBoi are forming a close production kinship as the latter joins OWSLA‘s roster, with “Malokera” serving as an enticing follow up to June’s “WARLORDZ.” Together they’ve delivered an infectiously bouncy original cut that proudly wears Brazil on its sleeve. Stream below.

8.08 Day: A  bass lover’s neck-breaking nirvana [PLAYLIST]808 Day

8/08 day is an annual cause for resounding celebration. The iconic Roland drum machine played a quintessential role in electronic, hip-hop, and pop’s development, with its imprint permanently stamped on a vast amount of top-charting singles of the ’80s and ’90s. While, the mechanism became antiquated by the turn of millennium, on account of oversaturation, lack of availability, and Roland’s plans to propel newer gear to the forefront, this was far from the end of its legacy. 

Fast-forward another decade: the 808 revival had begun. Rappers like Kanye West found that the instrument added a unique, crisp edge to the low-end of their productions, whilst dance music innovators like Aphex Twin found other creative ways to utilize the 808 for maximum impact. Today, a good deal of producers appreciate the vintage appeal it offers; so much so, that Roland even revived the 808 in 2017. 

We honor this musical staple with a series of larger-than-life tunes by Skrillex, Eptic, RL Grime, Dillon Francis, Bassnectar, Doctor P, Flux Pavilion, and more from heavy-handed listeners’ legion of 808 legends who have allowed this instrument to shine in the dance space over the years. In 808, we trust.

TroyBoi showcases the third installment of his ‘V!BEZ’ series through OWSLA

TroyBoi has released the third edition of his extended play set, V!BEZ, via Skrillex‘s OWSLA imprint. The EP features five tracks, including the the recent heavy-hitting collaboration with the label’s head honcho, “WARLORDZ.” “PAPI CHULO” is the lead single arriving from the project, released in anticipation to the multi-release bundle, while “Do You?” is the South East Londoner’s hit released in 2015 that highlights his less-is-more attitude and original sound sequencing. “BAILE” and “HIGH” (feat. YAS) are the two new original singles from the project, as the former further pounds the producer’s highly percussive trap leanings while the latter caresses a more celestial feel, allowing the sultry vocalist to shine amidst contrasting percussive ad libs.

In a recent press release, Skrillex mentioned some words about the signee: “TroyBoi is special in that he’s always uncompromising and follows his own vision. I went to see him headline the Hollywood Palladium and he had as much crew as you would bring into a nightclub like aerial dancers and violinists. He’s his own wave, no one sounds like him. It could be the simplest beat and you know it’s TroyBoi right away. He’s unique and simple, he makes people move.”

OWSLA boss Skrillex has been on the move racking up a relentless number of production work in the form of everything—from solo releases, to collaborations, features, and more. Within the summer of 2019 alone, the powerhouse joined forces with TroyBoi on “WARLORDZ“, lent his hand to Lykke Li’s “two nights part ii” with Ty Dolla $ign, and dropped a twofer Show Tracks. As of the past year, Skrillex has no doubt heavily resurfaced with his electronic pursuit, specifically in the form of Dog Blood activity. He has also continued to traverse musical genres, with his scope of work including pop co-writing credits with Ed Sheeran on “Way to Break My Heart.” Now, his latest venture comes in the form of Zac Brown Band‘s sixth studio album, The Owl.

Alongside Skrillex, Zac Brown have also enlisted pop mega-producer Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, and Shawn Mendes for co-writing duties on the forthcoming LP. The group promise “something for everyone” on The Owl, describing it as “exciting, raw, and unexpected”.

“We are always pushing ourselves as musicians by blurring genre boundaries and incorporating all kinds of music we are personally inspired by, elevating what we are capable as a group”, stated Zac Brown.

The Owl will be released on September 20.

Skrillex – “Fuji Opener” (Feat. Alvin Risk) & “Mumbai Power” (Feat. Beam)

Skrillex-Show-TracksPeople still love to make fun of Skrillex, but the man’s live shows are absurd, overwhelming ridiculously fun experiences. (I learned this for myself a few years ago.) There are a whole lot of EDM superstars out there, but Skrillex has eclipsed all of them for reasons that go way beyond his haircut. More »

It seems Skrillex fans are perpetually at the edge of their sets for whatever the OWSLA don happens to be working on. The voracity by which his fans crave his music doesn’t seem like something that will ever be entirely satisfied per se, but moments like this are about as close as we’ll get to the feeling. Because now, Skrillex has dropped off two massive setlist weapons that have long bounced around the internet and are finally ready to see the light of day. Amid the opening of an exciting new chapter in Sonny Moore’s already legendary career, “Fuji Opener” and “Mumbai Power” are zested with the perfect dash of nostalgia, but they undoubtedly represent an older, wiser Skrillex.

The new Skrillex doubleheader, dubbed Show Tracks comes complete with an appearance from Alvin Risk with a sample of his 2013 OWSLA cut “Skyclad” on “Fuji Opener,” which fans will remember Skrillex used to open his performance at Japan’s Fuji Rock last summer. “Mumbai Power” features Beam, and while the new twofer from the Recess producers more than satisfy, something tells us this is just the tip of the iceberg from Skrillex this year. In other words, “Guess who’s back mthfkr–?!”
