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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

One of the most impressive songs from Skrillex’s debut album has to be the collaboration with Diplo on the massive anthem “Dirty Vibe”. The gritty club tune features some fierce verses from K-Pop stars CL & G-Dragon and highlights both rappers throughout the video. They are accompanied by some outrageous dancers and over the top visuals to capture the dark edge of the song. Enjoy!
Skrillex continues his seemingly endless stream of new music in 2014 with news of another remix EP taken from his debut album earlier this year. Today we get the official remix to "Dirty Vibe", the song co-produced by Diplo and also featuring G-Dragon from Big Bang and CL from 2NE1. Today's remix is from the exciting French producer Habstrakt who's seen his fair share of love on TSIS with tracks like "Datbooty" and "Listen". He has flipped Skrillex and Diplo's rave anthem giving it a proper UK Garage remix, with modern Future House elements all delivered in Habstrakt's gritty bass styling. Listen to the premiere below and you can pick up the full EP when it releases on Dec 15th on OWSLA. Enjoy!

A few months back we premiered the debut single, "Maybe", from the new collaborative project Carmada the team of budding Australian producers LDRU and Yahtzel. Today we get the entire Realise EP featuring three brand new songs released through Skrillex's OWSLA label.
Skrillex was down under recently and premiered the whole EP via Nina Las Vegas' Triple J Mix Up Exclusives take-over along with Diplo, RL Grime and What So Not. Listen to the radio show stream below.
Carmada have been carving a lane in the chilled out side of production. They regularly step outside of what you would expect from them and prove to keep pushing the boundaries of the Australian sound with a harder twist. In the title track "Realise", the vocals from New Zealand based Noah Slee make the track stand out along with a subtle melody and funky drop. "Carmalude" showcases the more Australian feel we are used to with a touch of saxophone that really gives the track diversity. "On Fire" puts off a bouncy Flume-ish feel with vocals from Melbourne based RnB singer Maribelle that really take it to the next level.
You can now stream the EP in full and purchase on iTunes thanks to OWSLA. Enjoy!

After receiving a co-sign from Skrillex, rising LA based dubstep producer Trollphace has been on a hot streak this year and the releases aren't stopping. The LA-based producer joined Skrillex in delivering an official remix of Yogi’s “Burial”, and now Trollphace let’s us explore his creative capacities with his newest original “Make It Bounce” featuring vocals from North Carolina based Harvery J. The heavy dubstep foundation is hit with bursts of wobbly low tones and some added kicks. It’s a bass enthusiast's wet dream to hear something this energetic, and we think you should turn the volume all the way up to experience this track in its full glory.

Skrillex music videos tend to be a little outrageous, but with that being said they are always very entertaining. Bass ambassador Skrillex has unveiled his newest video for the track "Fuck That" from his debut studio album Recess. This is one of the more different sounding tracks we've heard from Skrillex stepping far away from the typical heavy sound hes is known for.
The video takes us through a visual journey of what seems to be a foreign interpretation of fight club. It starts off with our main character being released from some sort of underworld boxing training camp back into the arms of his presumed girlfriend. You would be naive to assume they were going home happily ever after as almost immediately after his release he receives a call that leads him back into the world of fighting that ends with an epic twist. Watch the video below and you can pick up your copy of the album today. Enjoy!

Rising Montreal-based artist SNAILS is one of very few producers who hasn’t missed the mark on a single release this year. He’s crafted an unique sound within the bass spectrum called “vomitstep” that has revitalized the entire bass world. SNAILS' standout singles “Wild” and “Pump This” continue to smash festival stages, venues, and clubs across the globe with no end in sight.
For SNAILS next release, he transitions into a remixer for fellow bass icon, Must Die!. Working his magic on the electro / dubstep single “Hellcat”, SNAILS lays down his signature style while leaving us with an extra weird interpretation. He completely restructures the drops to include a truly different, yet attractive sound. Snails keeps pushing the boundaries within the bass world on every new release, and today is no different. You can stream the full song below via our world premiere and pre-order on iTunes for a December 4th release via OWSLA.
