Recent OWSLA signee josh pan has been gaining legitimate traction over the last few months. With a coveted spot on OWSLA's Worldwide Broadcast compilation, the NYC producer has quickly become an artist to watch out for. His next venture sees him remixing South Korean enigma Keith Ape and his viral hit "IT G MA," which attracted features from A$AP Ferg, Waka Flocka Flame, Father, and Dumbfoundead on the original remix.
Now josh pan has remixed the track and brings on a new stand-out verse from rising hip-hop artist Anderson .Paak to add to the already stacked roster. Anderson .Paak has quickly risen as an artist to watch following his many features on Dre's album Compton, and he's since released an impressive debut album, appeared on TV for Colbert's show, and he's just signed with Dre's Aftermath Entertainment. The remix, dubbed "Opus" keeps the backbone of the original beat while incorporating electronic tinged trap layers into the nearly 15 minute track, which might as well be a mini mix. The song also boasts co-production credits from sakuraburst, MISOGI, X&G, MEDASIN, and oshi. Even Skrillex himself had something to say about the song.
This is a masterpiece. My jaw dropped when I heard it. – Skrillex
A saga of a song, josh pan seemlessly transitions between each verse, all while creating a whole new feel to the Korean trap hit. The song will be released Feb. 12th via OWSLA, but you can stream josh pan's "Opus" now!

Drezo has accumulated quite the following over the years. But since Jauz started repping Drezo's remix of Drowning Pool's "Bodies" during his live sets, Drezo quickly became one of the most talked about new producers. We last featured the LA producer for his remix of SNAILS and heRobust's "Pump This" and now he finally drops off the official version of "Bodies."
Turning the gritty original into a hard-hitting house remix, Drezo utilizes the intense vocals to deliver his own unique take on the song. Though we initially heard the song after Jauz posted a slightly viral video from one of his recent shows which included the song in his set, Drezo gives us the full quality version today. Check out the grimey song below and grab that free download.

Today we have the pleasure of introducing a talented rising hip-hop producer Boathouse, residing on Chicago based SoundScape studios, which houses the Closed Session label. Originally from Minneapolis, he was actually the engineer behind the Based Freestyle mixtape that brought together Chance The Rapper and Lil B last fall.
While his first EP, Girl, was solely instrumentals, his new Hibernation EP has guest features on three of the four tracks to deliver a more complete package. The title is fitting as Boathouse explains the EP “came from a place of restlessness. The confinement of the cold allowed me to hole up in the studio and focus my energy into a project meant to touch those who felt like me.” Each of the songs carry the same vibe throughout the project as he goes on to say “the aesthetic is definitely inspired by the season and the feeling of being inside when it's cold outside. If you find yourself stuck inside like us, let this EP be the soundtrack to your grind, your reflection, your rest, or however you choose to spend your time in Hibernation." The the beats are spacey and electronic, yet they have hip hop roots with atmospheric synths adding depth.”
Boathouse kicks it off with “Far,” his collaboration with Kweku Collins & Kipp Stone, which shows off his production talents with intruding, distant sounding melodies along with rumbling 808s and shuffling drums laying the foundation for the swaggy singing and an on-point verse. The EP moves into a more trippy and seductive direction with “Twin Flame,” as the R&B based track kicks off with the sexy backing vocals of Drea Smith with skittering hi hats and dark, psychedelic keys. He then throws in a solid instrumental track “Coming Into Focus” with his with signature off-timed, fascinating drumbeat and floating background synths. Ending the EP is his collaboration alongside Allan Kingdom on “Lavish,” in which Allan offers some short raps while singing catchy lyrics in tune with the hard hitting, atmospheric beat.
Grab a free download below of the EP and some other goodies and keep an eye on this up and coming producer!
