There’s the regular way to release a remix package, and then there’s the OWSLA way. The team over at the Nest has just released Birdy Nam Nam’s Defiant Order Remixes Project Vol. 1, where the French quartet’s own DJ Pone hand selected what made the cut. Featuring remixes of seven of the album’s 11 tracks, a G.Vump remix of “Written In The Sand” proved one of the most interesting.
G. Vump, or Gucci Vump, is Guillaume of The Shoes and Louis of Brodinski, and the pair took an already otherworldly track even further from Earth. The duo shot the original’s guided relaxation vocals into the stratosphere, leaving them wafting through a lofty melody anchored by a solid percussive line. According to DJ Pone the mix is “Gucci Vump at his best” and if cinematic chords are your thing you’ll have to agree. Click below the break for the EP’s full tracklist and head to The Nest to get in on their exclusive releases.

It’s been a while since we last heard from OWSLA label boss Skrillex. With his first original productions since “Make It Bun Dem,” Skrillex is starting off the new year with a brand new EP entitled Leaving, and it’s some of the most interesting material to come from the mind of Sonny Moore yet. The EP was released to fans last night via OWSLA’s new subscription service the Nest, and contains three brand new originals: “Leaving,” “The Reason,” and “Scary Bolly Dub.” Click past the break to listen to all three tracks, and subscribe to the Nest to receive all three originals in pristine WAV format.
Perhaps you have been seeing some peculiar tweets from some of your favorite OWSLA artists the past few days with hashtag #TheNest. This had many stirring with the question… “What is The Nest?”

As if Boys Noize and Skrillex‘s spontaneous collaboration, Dog Blood, wasn’t enough, the former-Pance Party members turned enigmatic electro outfit The M Machine run “Middle Finger” through a gauntlet of acid house growls and electro grit. The result is a wildly energetic, squealing, kick driven production that cuts off just before it really kicks off. This is one of those previews that ends way too soon, good thing it will be out on OWSLA new music distribution service The Nest in the next few weeks.
