Expressing a self-described spacey, rave aesthetic, Brooklyn DJ/producer O/W/W/W/L/S produces a heavy yet energetic mix that is equal parts obscure bass music, juke and danceable pop-infused hits. Bass driven offerings like Lust and Coming Together from Berlin producer Lōtic, or Nguzunguzu’s remix of Massacooramaan’s Dead Long Time entwine with the R&B sensibility of Total Freedom’s edit of Rihanna’s Where Have You Been and Wynter Gordon’s melancholic ballad, Kids, layered over off-kilter beats from the likes of Joy Orbison’s Mercy and Objekt’s Unglued. Back-to-back versions of Montrealer Kuhrye-oo’s For the Fame provide a glitchy yet relaxed finale.
Indiana-native O/W/W/W/L/S gained recent notoriety for his hand in Azealia Banks’ 2012 mixtape, Fantasea, with their collaborative tracks Atlantis, Chips and US earning critical acclaim upon their release this summer. Recent productions like Fuzz and So Froggy, released online under his own outlets, emphasize his quickly developing deep, quirky sound.
