OWSLA, the record label founded by Skrillex and sponsors of artists like Porter Robinson and The M Machine, has decided to release an early Christmas present in the form of the grimy, throw-down track, “Skanka” from the combined efforts of Rell The Soundbender and Kayzo as a part of OWSLA’s Nestivus giveaway. “Skanka” is the perfect tune for your fist pumping, Christmas or Roman Festivus style rager, characterized by a grimy, jittery synth amid pounding bass tones. Though the song builds and falls like a typical big room track, no two drops are alike, and the complexity of the kicks in tandem with a pounding bass that’s usually only found in the repertoire of a heavy metal drummer.
In addition, Skrillex and his OWSLA crew recently launched a charity campaign to help struggling musicians. You can read the full story on Billboard.
