Since late April 2015, Skrillex has taken a break from his popular Skrillex Selects weekly series. But now, the EDM heavyweight has returned with a 10-track playlist that won’t disappoint. This week’s selection is packed with new music from both of Skrillex’ imprints OWSLA and Nest HQ, as well as new releases from The Glitch Mob, Milo & Otis, and more.
Check out the latest installment of Skrillex Selects below…
This past week, The Glitch Mob dropped the leading single off their forthcoming EP Piece Of The Indestructible, featuring vocal work from Moving Castle affiliate Mark Johns; “Better Run, Better Hide” successfully unites the raw power of Glitch Mob’s organic sounds with Mark Johns’ chilling vocals. Released via Slow Roast Records’ sub-label GOODIES, Milo & Otis released a new tune “Diamondz” featuring Paul Wall and N.O.R.E. This track highlights the vocal work of Wall and N.O.R.E, although the production style adheres to the classic Milo & Otis style.
Representing the OWSLA fam, ARYAY delivers a track entitled “Overwhelmed,” featuring Elkka, although instills a more trap-influenced drop that goes way deeper with bass and gives Elkka’s vocals a sense of ghostly, mysterious vibes. Getter and MUST DIE! also recently dropped a new collab “Mega Gun” off Getter’s upcoming EP Allegiance, a track with a familial drop that has the dubstep touch of these two producers written all over it.
A few tracks from the Nest HQ label include Moody Good’s “This Is the Investigation” and Albin Myers & Carli’s “The Legend (Busy Tempo Original).” The hidden gems of the playlist contains a tech-house song “Wolfsbane” by Jonas Rathsman, a track from HANA entitled “Clay,” which displays her soft vocal work alongside a chill, laid-back beat, as well as a few hip hop selections from Boogie called “Oh My” and Fetty Wap’s “My Way” featuring Monty.
