LA based Yogi who just released the highly anticipated music video for "Burial" is back on our radar but this time with something a bit different from their other productions. "Tsing Tao" is a hard hitting hip-hop driven beat with trapped out elements that will get any party started. Yogi are signed with Dr. Dre's Aftermath label so it makes sense to hear them putting out forward thinking beats along with more dance oriented tunes. We're wondering if this one was supposed to go to Dre himself but instead they have decided to pass out as a free download. Stream the full song below and enjoy.

Montreal bass producer Snails cannot slow down. He just released his #FREETHEVOMIT EP, along with his monstrous EDC set full of unreleased tracks and edits. He has teamed up with Atlanta native HeRobust, whom we last heard on his remix of Rihanna's BBHM$, for a festival trap VIP remix of their electro house single "Pump This” which was released late last year. This has been a dj weapon over the past few months, and now you can finally get your hands on the full version, as they are releasing this as a limited 7 day free download via Skrillex's OWSLA label. This VIP comes with the announcement of a full "Pump This" remix EP dropping August 18th, featuring remixes from Getter, Apashe, Ghastly and Drezo. Be sure to catch Snails while he's on part two of his SNAILIN' USA Tour with full dates below. Enjoy

Vindata has popped back on our radar with a brand new single alongside the announcement of their highly anticipated forthcoming EP Through Time And Space that's set to release through OWSLA. This epic song “Getting Away” features the angelic vocals of Mack, a female singer whose voice is a beautiful blend of R&B with a tin of pop. With heavy build-ups and drops, future synths, unbelievable vocal chopping and a new almost jungle flavor, Vindata has really taken their sound to new heights. The post-tropical era is beginning, and Vindata are one of the first to capitalize on it. Keep an eye out for their 6-track EP and enjoy the stream below!

Electric Forest Defines the Idea Of A “Secret Set” With Skrillex, Datsik, 12th Planet, SNAILS, Mr. Carmack and Big Gigantic [Editorial + Photo + Video]Posted in Bangin, Chill, Events, News by Bryan | Tags: 12th Planet, Big Gigantic, Carmack, Cherub, Crizzly, Datsik, Electric Forest, Honeycomb, Mr. Carmack, OWSLA, Secret Sets, Selection, Skrillex, SNAILS, Team Supreme, Vaski
Make sure to follow the TSIS Instagram here for more exclusive photos and videos from EF posted daily.
Even before the now infamous TSIS secret closing party with Big Gigantic and Cherub, which took place on top of RV’s in General Admission camping the last night of Electric Forest, Thissongissick.com already had two other epic secret sets under our belts that will go down as festival folklore for years to come.
We were slated to curate the “Good Life” stage located in VIP camping on Friday night and amassed a collection of bass brethren to throw down a very rare b2b2b2b2b2b take-over that kicked off at 3AM. After decimating the main stage crowd with a close out set, OWSLA head honcho and Jack Ü co-captain Skrillex lead the charge and was joined behind the decks by Firepower Records ace Datsik, SMOG general and last minute festival addition 12th Planet, vomitstep aficionado Snails, pizza-gang advocate and crunk-step innovator Crizzly, and dubstep maverick Vaski.
All six DJs/producers took the stage together across four CDJs. The song selection was nothing short of organized chaos as bass banger after bass banger melted the faces of all 1000+ attendee’s that packed the very intimate tent till just past 6AM.
Recreating something as stacked and intimate as this set was a daunting challenge, but a series of blessed events opened the door for another secret set Saturday night. This time marked our first return to the luminous forest since the iconic 2012 TSIS secret set that gave birth to Big Grizmatik (Big Gigantic + GRiZ + Gramatik). One of the most forward thinking producers in the game Mr. Carmack was chosen as man to start the night off, and ended up delivering much more.
As we commandeered the Grand Artique stage around 4:30AM, Mr. Carmack took a seat and went into the mix for 4 hours and played the perfect blend of soul, funk gritty bass, hip-hop and more. He not only unloaded an uncountable amount of unreleased originals and remixes from himself and friends, but then moved into mo-town hits, R&B classics and more for one of the most eclectic sets anyone in attendance had ever experienced.
There was a cast of other artists from the festival that were set to follow, but Mr. Carmack was nailing the vibe so perfectly that they allowed him to keep going.
Then, something magical happened toward the middle / end of Mr. Carmack's set. Newcomer hip-hop MC Honeycomb started beatboxing over the producer's funky beats. Having picked up on the vibes from the sidelines, the two were soon accompanied on stage by The Fungineer members Lafa Taylor, Kyrian Bobeerian and Honey LaRochelle, who delivered an unbelievable display of vocal talents alongside bass player Simply B (Brandon B Barker). It became a completely organic live band that even saw Carmack switch from Traktor to drum duties.
This unintentionally became one of the most outrageous and unexpected live musical experiences we've been apart of yet, and was further enhanced by a pristine sunrise that spread throughout the forest.
To be completely honest, we aren't sure if any other festival could house something so special and secretive compared to what the Thissongissick secret sets at Electric Forest became this year. We'd like to thank the Electric Forest team for the opportunity to craft these very special parties, and both Ryan Hug and Michael Silberman for their added assistantce. But most importantly, we'd love to thank those who attended these unforgetable performances with us so late in the evening. You best believe that 2016 will see another round of secret sets sponored by Thissongissick, so start planning your Electric Forest trip now! Enjoy
Chicago based producer Aryay first appeared on our map with his collab remix with Flosstradamus of Raury's "God's Whisper" and is back with his biggest release yet. He has a huge "Vicious" EP that's set to release through OWSLA and we have the premiere of our favorite song off the release. "R YOU OK" is one of the most refreshing "future bass" styled songs we've heard in quite some time. Aryay takes you on a melodic journey with unique percussion, colorful chords and even throws some violin in the mix to let the vocals sit on top for the perfect outcome. Stream the song and pre-order his "Vicious" EP dropping on OWSLA July 10th.

LA bass producer Getter regularly pushes the boundaries of his heavy brand of electronic music. He returns from his latest single "Stay A While", with his highly anticipated collaboration with Must Die on "Mega Gun", set to be featured on his debut release, Allegiance EP on Skrillex's OWSLA label. We are treated to a refreshing take on dubstep, with a melody filled heater full of powerful drums, bright synths, and signature drops. Stream the premiere below and grab a copy with the EP release on June 16th.

German producer Etnik is one of the Techno forces to break outside of the Techno die hards thanks to people like Skrillex and his OWSLA label supporting him. He released a massive single "Unclassified" last year and has been rolling out the "Unclassified" Remix EP, and we have a premiere of the latest track. Sydney based Wax Motif steps up to the plate and delivers a fresh, gritty G-House remix of the song. This is a song that screams to be played at an extra sweaty house after party. This comes fresh off the release of Wax Motif's exciting original single "Since I Left You." Stream the full song below and you can now pick up the full remix EP through OWSLA. Enjoy!

Last year Aussie producers Yahtzel and LDRU combined forces to become the supergroup Carmada and TSIS premiered their debut single "Maybe" which was apart of their Realise EP which has already been followed up with live festival debuts foreshadowing their very massive year ahead of them. Over a million plays later on "Maybe" has led to the natural decision of releasing a monster remix EP around it and we have the exclusive of the very first one. Fellow Aussie rising forces Slumberjack and Elk Road have stepped up to the plate to offer an eerie future bass styled twist to the song with added horns, melodic synths and powerful drums to make things interesting. Stream the premiere below and you can pre-order for a release on April 16th through OWSLA along with the entire package also featuring Getter, Trollphace, Pegboard Nerds and more!

Toronto to LA duo, Torro Torro took some time out of the spotlight last year to focus on new music and have been making quite a scene rolling it out. Following up "Cashville" and "Front 2 The Back" we have the premiere of their newest single "Make A Move". This song is a certified electro house rave anthem kicking off with smooth melodies and female vocals that were actually co-written by Skrillex himself, building up to some drops that do not let up.
This song is available as part of the OWSLA Spring 2015 Compilation which is available today. This compilation also features the previously premiered SNAILS & Big Gigantic collaboration "Funk With Me" and AWE's remix of Jack U's "Take U There" and many more.

Today we get the epic, very unexpected collaboration with Colorado's Big Gigantic.

LA based producer AWE has always pushed the boundaries of Future Bass, Trap, and Bass music; taking elements from all over and truly carving his own sound. Today his latest target for a remix is Skrillex and Diplo's debut single as powerhouse duo Jack Ü's, "Take Ü There". As always, AWE pushes sounds further then you could imagine leaving us with something that is almost impossible to toss a label on, yet he is using "Future Trap" to get the message across. This is not for the feint of heart, as it will rattle your spine from the very first drop. This is taken from OWSLA's newly announced Spring 2015 Compilation which is out next week. Listen to the premiere of this song below and grab your copy next week. Enjoy!

One of the most exciting breaths of fresh of air in the bass world is without a doubt Montreal's own SNAILS. The TSIS regular has premiered with us since his Bubble Gun VIP, and has rose to the forefront of bass music thanks to massive singles like "Pump This", "Wild", his "Crazy" bootleg with Brillz, or even his recent collaboration alongside Skrillex an Diplo with "Holla Out" on the Jack U album. On top of all this, last summer he changed the game and put out the first ever all UNRELEASED music mix, the Snailed It! Mix, still receives heavy plays to this day.
Today SNAILS follows up the first Snailed It! Mix with Volume 2 of the series, "Welcome To SLUGZ CITY". In similar fashion the mix is filled to the brim with unreleased songs, adding up to a full EP of unreleased SNAILS material alongside new tunes from some of the biggest names in bass music. Following in the same fashion as the first mix, the track names and artists will be revealed one by one.
SNAILS has also revealed the exciting details on his first ever headline tour fittingly called the "SNAILIN USA TOUR" check out the full list of dates below.

Skrillex and Diplo's collab project Jack Ü continues to bring us a stream of all star remixes of their debut single "Take Ü There". Following up the recent Zeds Dead version, we now have Paris based future house pioneer Tchami offering his own spin. We hear Tchami deliver his signature house sound with an even more heavy twist on the drops, which makes sense considering who he is remixing. Looks like Tchami is not slowing down anytime soon as he continues to establish himself as one of the most exciting producers to be watching out for. You can stream the song below, but be on the look out to pick up your copy alongside the upcoming Take Ü There Remix EP set to release December 23rd. Enjoy!

Today we are in for a special treat as we have have the world premiere of LA based Ghastly and Mija's highly anticipated single "Crank It" featuring vocals from Lil Jon. The track has received widespread support from Skrillex and many other big dogs. Ghastly has been pushing the limits of the future house sound with collaborations with the likes of Jauz on "Miami Connection". Newcomer Mija first popped up on our radar after she went b2b with Skrillex for a sunrise house set at Bonnaroo and has been taken under Skrillex's wing.
"Crank It" pushes genre boundaries carrying out a house vibe to pair with some beastly future wobbles that is completed by Lil Jon's indistinguishable vocals. Side note- this song started with a Lil Jon sample but after he was shown the track, he gave them approval for a feature credit.
You can now pre-order the song below as part of OWSLA's first ever Christmas compilation properly titled "EGGNOG" out Dec. 16th with all proceeds going to Bridges For Music. You can also sign up for OWSLA's Nestivus advent calendar at a discounted rate via their NEST subscription service here and receive the compilation plus 24 other giveaways leading up to Christmas. Enjoy!
