This song is so dope. Never heard the original or the band Hundred Waters, but the Skrillex rework and Chance feature got me to listen instantly. Hundred Waters is an Indie Folk band from the University of Florida that somehow ended up signing with Skrillex's OWSLA label. An unexpected pairing with the predominantly electric heavy acts but good music is good music. Can't wait to hear more.
Haven't listened to much of the Canadian duo Torro Torro but I see Skrillex hop on a remix and I had to listen. The original "Make a Move" is more of a big room house anthem, the OWSLA boss gets his hands on it and Sonny turns it into a dubstep banger, a welcome return from all the pop anthems Skrillex has been on lately. The remix is grimey, dirty, and I actually prefer it better than the original.

I've never listened to What So Not before. Then I found out that What So Not is a duo with Flume, and now Flume isn't apart of What So Not, but What So Not dropped a new EP called "Gemini" with Flume co-producing; it's a lot to keep up with. Regardless I've finally hit play on the OWSLA artist and I'm so glad I did. What So Not is down to one member, Emoh Instead; but "Gemini" is their last collaborative body of work. Dope from start to finish. Free download too.
I'm pretty sure Diplo and Major Lazer are the most frequent artists posted up on the blog. We're quite fond of them, lol. "Peace is the Mission" just continues to deliver, this time with a remix from our favorite duo LOUDPVCK and OWSLA artist Aryay. The song is dope in the first place; the remix keeps Wild Belle's vocals intact but adds monster bass and crazy synths throughout. Wish the song was a little longer but it does the job.

I've been hearing Valentino Khan's monster dance hit "Deep Down Low" all summer. Everybody and their mom has been remixing the track but LA producer Party Favor probably takes the crown with a sick trap remix that is just freaking nuts! All the original elements are kept in the song but he slows it down and turns it on its head, with trap and hardstyle at the end, banger!
The OWSLA team is strong with this one. Pusha T gets the full production strength from Skrillex's record label with a monster hit provided by Yogi collabed with Skrillex, Moody Good, and TrollPhace. Pusha T just sounds right over the EDM/trap heavy beats. The video is dope featuring fire, contortionist, and even Dennis Rodman. Sick!
