BLOOD DIAMONDS // BARCODE EP

RELEASE DATE: 3/12/2013




“Oh OWLSA how you never cease to amaze me. Yet another glorious release inside The Nest is now open to the public.”

-THIS SONG SLAPS

“The original features plenty of BD’s sonic trademarks– chopped-up, fucked-with vocals, twinkling synths– along with a grungy bassline that drops right in the middle of the tune.”

- PITCHFORK

“I’m surprised that Canadian native, Blood Diamonds, has stayed under the radar this long. His sound design is dreamy and his songs offer almost unlimited replay ability. Technically this is Trap, but it’s one of the most elegant Trap songs I’ve ever heard.”

- SALACIOUS SOUND

“Blood Diamonds’ ‘Barcode’ pairs Harlem rapper Dominic Lord with a handful of elements (trap-inflected percussion, dubstep wobble, electro-pop synth work) that are more divergent on paper than on record.”

-FACT

“Barcode kicks off with the original collab between the two, utilizing Lord’s lazy-ish rap style and Diamond’s nice synth work, coming together to turn out OWSLA’s first Hip Hop single.”

- IMMACULATE MUSIK

“OWSLA released this EP back on March 12th, 2013 and has already been surprising thousands of people throughout the world with this incredible original release as well as the remixes to go with it.”
