Skrillex Selects has become an awesome way to promote fresh new music from the OWSLA and NEST families while also helping little known artists that the talented Sonny Moore elevates from the bowels of the internet. This week is no different and highlights some truly impressive talent; talent to be watched in this burgeoning world of electronic dance music.
Check out the playlist below and more details about each track, the contributing artists, and why it was included, after the jump.
“Torro Torro – Make A Move [OWSLA]
T.Dot two-piece, Torro Torro, make their OWSLA debut with this big room Electro cranker. Sexual vocals are met with fiery synth wiggles ready for your next festival main stage experience.
Getter – Head Splitter [OWSLA]
“Let the record play, and get your head knockin.” Wise words from Getter in his bass’d out trapper, “Head Splitter”, out now on the OWSLA Spring Compilation.
Snails – Funk With Me ft. Big Gigantic [OWSLA]
Who knew that vomit-step and the funky feels of Big Gigantic could work so damn perfectly together? Love this collaboration and hope there’s more in store from Snails and the Colorado duo in the future.
Wiwek – Bang Bang Theory (Instrumental Mix) [OWSLA]
If you’ve heard or read any interviews with Skrilly as of late, you’d know how pumped up he is on Jungle Terror innovator, Wiwek. “Bang Bang Theory” is all energy, stacked with wonky synth shooters and big, fat kick drums. Ditch your coffee and replace with Wiwek.
AObeats & Jai Wolf & Manila Killa ft. Mark Johns – Diamonds for Breakfast [Moving Castle]
What a huge collab. Moving Castle all stars AObeats, Jai Wolf, Manila Killa, and Mark Johns connect on a gorgeous single from the Moving Castle Vol. 004 compilation, shining a light on URL culture with the melty hook, “My phone was on silent…” Read up on the rest of MC’s ace compilation here.
Born Dirty ft. Kid Sister – Don’t Stop Get It [NEST]
Born Dirty is the brand new side project from Linden Jay & Son of Kick, and they’ve teamed up with CHI-town rapper, Kid Sister, for their debut single on NEST. Download this bassline meets hip hop jawn direct here.”
