Skrillex's OWSLA Label's New Compilation: We Rank the Tracks
14. The Juggernaut
The Juggernaut is a dubstep two-piece from Orange County with a lot of potential. "Chess Fight" is far more introspective than the dubstep tracks we hear at clubs. It's almost reminiscent of '90s IDM.
13. Nick Thayer
"Wake up Call"
Australian producer Nick Thayer has a real party-starter here with "Wake up Call." It's like he wrote a melody for a horror movie and then turned it into a monster festival jam.
12. Alvin Risk
Alvin Risk has been popping up on L.A. bills a lot lately. With good reason -- he can get the dance floor going. With "Cities," though, he plays around with dance floor-unfriendly beats, sweeping synths and hints of video game melodies for a track that will last after the party is finished.
11. Two Fresh
Occasionally, I feel like I have to strain my ears to listen to "Leaving Here." It's unusually quiet. But, the closer you listen, the more you discover hidden inside the track.
10. Child in Disguise
I'm currently geeking out over Child in Disguise's SoundCloud because he remixed J-pop viral hit "PonPonPon" and a track from the anime Samurai Champloo. As for his contribution to this compilation, it got me dancing. "The Drifter" probably isn't a banger, but that's alright. It's funky, slick and everything you need to keep the night going.
