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 particular stand outs. But it’s the sparsely placed chill tracks like Phonat’s “Never” and Branchez's What So Not remix which really sets the compilation apart.
For a compilation called Eggnog, there’s not anything overly seasonal about it. But that’s good. This mix will be good all year around.
If you're in NYC this NYE, you can still get tickets for Skrillex x Diplo at Madison Square Gardens. If you can't make it there, you can at least listen to Skrillex x Diplo's just-released New Years Eve Mixtape on Pandora. There you can find some dancehall tunes that are even filthier.
