Out on Beatport February 12th, 2013
“Meet Oleg and Anton, the Russian/Ukrainian duo formerly known as Place 2B and Paimon, now more popularly known as Teddy Killerz. Skrillex himself was so impressed by the duo’s Make It Bun Dem Remix Contest entry that he not only proclaimed them honorary winners, but he also decided to sign them to his groundbreaking label, OWSLA. Best known for their stellar dnb, dubstep, and breaks productions, the duo decided to switch things up for their first original release for OWLSA with the Toys Riot EP, a three-track collection of some very filthy trap music.”
Bangarang Featuring Sirah for Best Dance Recording
Bangarang for Best Dance/Electronica Album
Promises (Skrillex & Nero Remix) for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical
Last week OWSLA released the new Birdy Nam Nam EP, Defiant Order, which arrived with a slew of remixes by DJ Craze, Breakbot, UZ, and Block Beattaz. But today we’re about to do you one better with an exclusive video of Craze cutting up the track live.
“The most important thing for me is to give it that human funk,” Craze comments on cutting up a live remix. “Whether you’re playing an instrument live or scratching live or whatever—as long as it’s got that human funk. I wanted to give this mix a little bit of what I can bring to the table, with the scratches and that swing I love having in my music. I focused on the vocals ’cause they sounded organic and added some horns to give it that funk.” Below you can check out both the live mix on video and grab Craze’s remix from the Defiant Order EP. As well, Birdy Nam Nam have just uploaded a brand-new Beatport Mix, which features the likes of Four Tet, Jam City, Para One, Hrdvision, and tons more, so check that out, too.
