Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Electro, Moombahton | OWSLA Presents FREE Treats Vol. 2

Posted by on March 13, 2012

The big day has finally arrived and OWSLA’s Free Treats Vol.2 is now out. I’m going to go ahead and say personally I was dissapointed at first, while others felt the compilation was up to par. I’m not saying every track on this compilation isn’t as appealing as I thought it was going to be, but for the most part I was let down for the number of tracks that are on this release. Free music is free music though and I won’t complain about that and there are tracks on here that deserve recognition. My overall favorite on the release is without a doubt Flinch & Jamtech Foundation – Bad Boy. I have said it before and I will say it again, reggae with dubstep is a killer combination. The Moombahton representers, Munchi and Sazon Booya, definitely nailed their tracks bringing the lasers and the heavy steel drums. When I saw Koan Sound and Alvin Risk’s names on the track list I had a feeling they would not disappoint. Koan Sound definitely didn’t, but I was a little disheartened by Alvin Risk’s melodic approach on his track. After listening to it a few times though, I got over it and could appreciate the uniqueness incorporated into constructing the track and not just releasing his usual expected laser synth filled Moombah tracks, altohugh that would have been nice. The last honorable mentions goes to Plastician’s Deep Dubstep track and Bare Noize & Zardonic’s Drum and Bass track. The wait still continues for something new from Skrillex. The compilation is free so follow the Beatport link below and grab your free download.
