Skrillex – Mothership Tour US 2014 Video Recap
We've watched the meteoric rise of Montreal based producer / DJ SNAILS as he unleashes a relentless stream of essential bass anthems over the past year from his chart topping collab with Antiserum on "Wild", to the recent "Slugz", and collab with Botnek on "KRMT" among many others. Now Snails has teamed up with Atlanta-native heRobust for a lethal release that see's the two producers stepping outside of their roots to deliver one of the hottest big room / electro house anthems we have heard all year. "Pump This" has received play out by the likes of Skrillex, Diplo, DJ Snake, Dillon Francis and even electronic music king Tiesto! The drop builds some unreal suspense before hitting you in the face with some frenzy inducing sirens. "Big Room Barf" is what the artists are calling this epic tune and we feel it fits quite nicely. I'm excited to premiere the stream of the song below and you can listen in full before picking up your own copy available now via Skrillex's OWSLA record label. Enjoy!

Be prepared for a strong dose of something lovely as mysterious OWSLA trio Yogi drop one of their freshest remixes to date. The cluster of respected producers have taking the reigns of rapper Schoolboy Q "Hell Of A night" and flip the crap out of the original by implanting a trapped out foundation with some juke / jersey club aesthetics layered in. This pleasent array of elements are warped and twisted within Q'd verses and though release details are unknown, you can stream the track in it's entirety below and purchase their brand new Burial EP featuring the lead single with Pusha T now!

[TSIS PREMIERE] SNAILS – SNAILED IT! Mix Vol 1. Coming To America : Must Hear Bass Mix Of All Unreleased SongsPosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: #SNAILEDIT!, Kannibalen, Mix, OWSLA, SNAILS
SNAILS is currently in the middle of a full takeover of the somewhat stale bass world with his extra weird style you can't forget thanks to everyone from Skrillex to Diplo playing out all his tracks like the recent "Wild" collaboration. He continues the takeover by dropping off his first mix ever to celebrate him playing his first tour of shows in the US. So we have Snailed It Mix Volume 1 : Coming To America edition, and since of course SNAILS wanted to make it even more unique and has gone and only included unreleased tracks on the mix leaving us scrambling to figure out who they could be. We can see and hear that there are a handful of brand new unreleased SNAILS tunes that sound absolutely insane right out the gate; and there are also a collection of unreleased tunes from some of his homies like Datsik, Must Die!, Paper Diamond & Protohype and many more still all labeled as ID. It's easily one of the most exciting bass mixes I heard in longer than I can remember. He is also making the mix interactive releasing all the artist names once it breaks 100k plays and the track titles every 25k after that. View Full Track-List below.
This also comes with the announcment of SNAILS playing his first ever shows in America. He will be kicking off his run of shows with a last minute suprise announced peformance at HARD Summer followed by his first headline US show at The Yost Theater in Orange County. He will then be hitting Detroit for a headliner show, followee by playing at Moonrise Music Festival and finishing up at TomorrowWorld in Atlanta. Tour dates and ticket links below.

Genre blending and crafty innovations in sound design best describes the work of UK native and OWSLA / MTA Records producer Moody Good much anticipated self-titled artist album which hits shelves on June 2nd and 3rd in its respective regions. With the whole album available to stream on SoundCloud now before the release, we've dissected the robust 15 track offering which showcases a vast collection of forward think breaks, gritty bass influxes, UK garage stylings, and transitions between tranquil and savage synth patterns featured throughout.
My personal favorites are the collaborations with two highly coveted songstresses, Eryn Allen Kane on "Musicbx" and Haleighblu on "Living Off The High" & "Bubbles", where the chill bass instrumentals allow the ladies to flow some sultry R&B soaked lyrics over the production. From start to finish the album takes takes less an hour to digest, but within that minute amount of time the beauty of Moody Goods meticulous perfection in each song is apparent and inspiring with this solo endeavor from his previous days as 1/2 of 16bit proving to be fruitful. Stream and pre-order the release below, but above all… Enjoy
