The rollout of OddKidOut’s Solstice EP finally comes to completion today, with the official release of the project via Skrillex’s OWSLA record label. We’ve been covering the presentation of this unique EP over the past couple months, which focuses on sampling different tracks exclusively from the OWSLA catalog and are excited to premiere the full project. So far the first three singles, “6 Years,” “The Getaway,” and “Napa Street” have all been right on the money, and now we get to hear Solstice in it’s full and final form.

The brand new number being released today to conclude the EP is “MIND/$,” which samples the Yogi track Money On My Mind (feat. Juicy J and Alexander Lewis)”. Unlike the other tracks, which lean towards a much more chill and euphoric sound, “MIND/$” is a straight slapper with bending 808s that will twist your face up every which way.

OddKidOut has seemed to really outdo himself on this entire EP. It’s clear that Skrillex saw something within this young Philly-based producer, and this release has certainly earned him some credentials in the production world. We definitely expect to see some more of OddKidOut soon.

PREMIERE | Rising OWSLA Artist OddKidOut Drops Charming New Track “The Getaway” Off EP


OddKidOut is back with the second track from the rollout of his unique, new Solstice EP. Last week, it was announced that the fresh OWSLA producer would be taking on the special project, which focuses on the sampling of different OWSLA tracks from their catalog.

We fell in love with the first track, “6 Years,” upon first listen. The tune sampled the ever-so-talented brother and sister duo, Tennyson, and today, OddKidOut delivers track two from Solstice, which also samples Tennyson (“Cry Bird”), as well as Skrillex and Team EZY’s “Pretty Bye Bye.” The new track is titled “The Getaway,” and it’s just as impressive as the first.

The most identifiable use of the sampling is how OKO utilizes the intro to “Pretty Bye Bye,” while creating an entirely new, charming melody that is unique to “The Getaway.” The vocal cut is utilized throughout the whole track, and it works perfectly.

Stay tuned for the next couple weeks, when OddKidOut and OWSLA reveal the third part of the four-track EP, Solstice due July 11. Listen below and enjoy!

OddKidOut Drops Stunning Track “6 Years” Via OWSLA & Announces New EP

Considering the success of Skrillex’s tastemaking label OWSLA, we can almost always trust what music they’re pushing forward at any given time. Today, OWSLA has put forth a brand new track from OddKidOut, who’s a fresh face in electronic music. The track is titled “6 Years,” and not only is it an amazing, complex piece of music, but there’s also quite an interesting story behind it.

According to the press release, "After moving to LA last year to work with Skrillex, the two talked about OKO sampling some OWSLA tracks and seeing what he could come up with. OddKidOut ended up creating a full EP made with samples from the label's discography, including Skrillex & Poo Bear's "Would You Ever", Skrillex & Team EZY's "Pretty Bye Bye", Yogi's "Money On My Mind" with Juicy J, and Tennyson's "Cry Bird" and "your face tastes like my happy place."

OWSLA is set to release a track from the EP every week over the next four weeks, and this first one, “6 Years,” already has us hooked. This specific tune uses samples from one of our favorite groups, Tennyson, which explains the skittery, glitchy complexity. OddKidOut corrals Tennyson’s spacey percussion and vocal chops from “Your Face Tastes Like My Happy Place” and turns it into a more full, cohesive piece of art.

Stay tuned for the rest of rollout of OddKidOut’s new EP as it is unveiled over the next few weeks. "6 Years" comes along with an artistic video bringing the song to life. Enjoy!
