Nick Thayer releases new EP on Skrillex’s label OWSLA
The name Nick Thayer will already be familiar to many ITMers, thanks to his hefty studio output and all-year-round touring. The homegrown beatmaker also unveiled a new audio-visual show in 2011, working alongside artist collaborator Sevenmilligram to create an immersive club experience. 2012, though, is set to be the year that Thayer’s international profile accelerates – thanks to the release of his Like Boom EP on OWSLA, the label captained by US upstart-superstar Skrillex. Not a bad juggernaut to have behind you.
Thayer describes the sound of the EP as “the musical equivalent of putting seven glowsticks in a blender”. Here’s what label chief Skrillex has to say: “Nick is one of the most versatile producers I know, taking everything from house to DnB to Moombahton and putting his own forward thinking spin on it. Not genre-bound, just music-bound”. Thayer’s labelmates on OWSLA include Koan Sound, Kill The Noise, Skream, Porter Robinson and Zedd. You can head to Beatport right now to pick up Like Boom.
