Skrillex, Slushii, What So Not And More Celebrate OWSLA’s 5th
Skrillex’s OWSLA imprint celebrated its five year anniversary over the weekend, with the producer turned label boss calling upon a cast of his friends and DJs to commemorate one of EDM’s most recognizable brands in style.
Marshmello, Slushii, What So Not, Anna Lunoe, Bauuer and more were all present at the label’s birthday party in Los Angeles, dubbed OW5LA, and helped usher in the anniversary with some top notch DJ sets. Footage from the evening has now surfaced on YouTube, giving casual fans the chance to witness the exclusive event.
OWSLA achieved its first milestone on September 13, 2011 with its inaugural release in the form of Porter Robinson’s debut album Spitfire, a record that epitomized the sounds of complextro while shooting to the top of the Beatport charts and actually crashing its servers when it came out. Five years later and the label is still a safe haven for dance music’s most promising acts, a testament to the success of its founder’s extra-curricular activities outside of producing and DJing.
Check out the videos below to re-live the festivities from over the weekend, which included an OWSLA themed cake, plenty of DJ sets and a Hawaiian shirt clad Skrillex.
