Stumbled upon this album when I was building up the new playlist and I can’t stop listening to it!
I finally did some searching online to figure out who’s behind the album and discovered this is Skrillex’s label OWSLA. In a joint effort with Chris Lake, they have produced this venture into house, hence HOWSLA. Check out their feed and some cool merch at #howsla. If you’re lucky enough to be in LA, they are playing weekends through the summer.
“Freeek” is definitely ahead of “Chicken Soup” as my top two tracks on the album, but there are so many good body beats on here you’ll be well entertained. I even set it as background music during a Madden 17 game and was humming the tracks as I lost my franchise matchup; but what’s really more important, right!?
