OWSLA Eggnog Compilation Great For Any Festivus

OWSLA Eggnog Compilation Great For Any Festivus There’s no reason your holidays have to be traditional and boring. This first ever OWSLA compilation features four brand new tracks and a ton of grimy mayhem. Clearly on the Bad Santa vibe, Heartsrevolution starts things off with a scruffy holiday rendition. And things only get more unkempt from there. Skrillex, Jack U, What So Not, Henry Fong, and Diplo only make up part of the 28-track rampage. The Galactics vs Alex Metric version of “Heart Weights a Ton” and Silverback’s remix to TC’s “Get Down Low” are...

Cut Snake: A life of beats, boards and shoey’s (INTERVIEW)

1455896_606361662802476_5498341247211969702_n Mad as a Cut Snake, the Australian lingo meaning "go crazy," definitely applies to the guys of Cut Snake. Hailing from Australia’s Gold Coast, Cut Snake is Paul ‘Fish’ Fisher and Leigh ‘Sedz’ Sedley, both pro-surfers from the land down under. Cut Snake made the rounds of the American festival circuit in 2014, with sets at SXSW, Splash House and HARD Day of the Dead.

Fresh Selection: Lakker – Monla (Extended)

10631193_830315813659863_8005299162969979510_o Fresh Selection: Lakker - Monla (Extended) Next up we have an extended version of the song 'Monla' by Lakker. Lakker is a mysterious group out of Ireland who keeps the focus on the art. Not ones to mince words or write up long bios or even do interviews for that matter it would appear. They are deft musicians with a keen sense of what makes music powerful. This extended edit sounds like a song Boards of Canada may have put out if they had started making music today. Pay attention to Lakker, you do not get signed to R&S Records if...

Megan Sutherland’s Los Angeles Event Picks – December 19th, 2014

Megan Sutherland’s Los Angeles Event Picks - December 19th, 2014 Low temps in L.A and high levels of holiday spirit make it the perfect excuse to bust out that vintage fur coat and little party dress. Fellas in the festive mood perhaps opt for a dapper coat or charming bow tie before you paint the town and make those cocktail party appearances. Traffic is even more of a bitch then normal, but hey you shouldn’t be driving after that spiked egg nog anywho, so call an Uber and tell them to take you to one of these destinations darlings. We promise the music you hear will be joyous and hope you end...

The Armand van Helden Masterpiece Minimix Bucks The Trend

The Armand van Helden Masterpiece Minimix Bucks The Trend The Armand van Helden Masterpiece is coming out this February, but you can listen to the minimix here now. All the big names are here: Toto, Kenny Loggins, The Doobie Brothers, India... Hanson and Davis... Oh you weren't expecting all those old people? The 3-disc album cares not about the current trends. Instead, it's a "journey through the mind of a house music icon". Something which is far more interesting. For instance, Armand van Helden's 2007 album Ghettoblaster makes perfect sense now. The Loft - Boston disc is 90s...

artworks-000012085769-xwbm2a-original Fresh Selection:Chromatics - In the City This might not technically be fresh, but it was freshly renewed in being brought to our attention with the anniversary of the Chromatics birthday recently! Chromatics are an electronic band fixed on a path to the well deserved classification of a classic group.
