OWSLA presents EGGNOG Vol. 1 (Mixed by Etnik) [OWSLA] Skrillex’s imprint tapped German up-and-comer Etnik to mix its holiday compilation, whose sales go to support international music nonprofit Bridges for Music.

The Martinez Brothers, "Tree Town" [Cuttin’ Headz] The Bronx brethren test drive their new NYC imprint’s first digital release with an upbeat and percussive tech house offering.

Kayzo, "Fired Up" (feat. Nina Sung) (Fawks Remix) [Firepower Records] Making his debut on Datsik’s label, the L.A.-based artist delivers an energetic drum n bass rework centered on jaunty percussion and chugging electro synths.

Nicone & Sascha Braemer, "Barsch" [WHATIPLAY] Two of Berlin’s finest talents join forces on a powerful track that builds from a lively arpeggiator line amid moaning vocals and driving drums.

Tremor, "Huella" (El Búho Remix) [Wonderwheel Recordings] Drawing upon Latin American influences, the Amsterdam artist buoys the original’s beautiful vocal with birdsong, marching snares and ethereal atmospherics to timeless effect.
