Skrillex Teams Up With MUST DIE!, Team EZY on OWSLA ‘Worldwide Broadcast’ Compilation [LISTEN]
Mere hours before dropping the latest OWSLA compilation album, Worldwide Broadcast, Skrillex leaked "VIP's," his new collaboration with Berlin-based producer MUST DIE!. Now the entire album, which features the label lead's remix of GTA's "Red Lips" and his collaboration with Team EZY as well as Mija's DJ Snake remix and tracks by DJ Sliink, Yellow Claw and San Holo, Bixel Boys and Poupon among others, is available to stream.
Worldwide Broadcast presents nine uniquely different productions that run the gamut from trap and future bass to electro house and Jersey club. The album showcases new talent alongside some of the biggest names in bass and serves to set the tone for what to expect from the imprint in 2016. Listen below.
Skrillex demonstrates his versatility as a producer in his contributions to the compilation. "VIP's," his collaboration with MUST DIE!, and "Pretty Bye Bye," his collaboration with Team EZY featuring NJOMZA, bookend the compilation with two extremes of Sonny Moore's typical sonic palette.
"VIP's" delivers some hard-hitting moombah and is one of the most face-melting tracks of the compilation. Meanwhile, "Pretty Bye Bye" calls to mind artists like Mt. Eden and is one of the dreamiest, neural tracks on the album.
MUST DIE! discussed collaborating with Skrillex on "VIP's" in a statement: "Working with someone I've admired so much for so long was a dream come true," The FADER reports. "We took our time and really honed the song into something fun and expressive, I think! I'm really pleased with the outcome."
Skrillex added that, "MUST DIE! and I made this track mostly online. We never worked on it IRL which is a cool thing about producing in the 21st century."
Pitchfork reports that in addition to the album, OWSLA is releasing a new apparel collaboration with streetwear brand Dimepiece LA and Bixel Boys' #FREELIFE campaign. Watch the video for Bixel Boys and Poupon's nudisco track "Ain't Your Girl" below.
