OWSLA seems like it can’t miss. Recent highly anticipated releases include albums from Kill The Noise and its founder, Skrillex, in addition to the slew of tracks Zedd has been unleashing upon the EDM world. Add another success in the form of “Metropolis Pt. I” from The M Machine (formerly of Pance Party fame). This album is almost impossible to classify in terms of genre; the album draws upon dubstep, electro house, ambient, drumstep, and indie dance (just to name a few). As a whole the piece is dark and ominous, but not in a depressing way. The best such examples are “Immigrants” and “Shadow in the Rose Garden.” Although very different tracks, they both are energetic despite a certain brooding quality they possess. The M Machine even successfully incorporates a more uplifting track (although it can’t quite be deemed ‘happy’) in “A King Alone.” Give the album a listen or two all the way through and you certainly won’t be disappointed.
