STYLSS is a premier worldwide (via PDX) online collective and platform for underground electronic artists and producers to share and boost their tracks through global appeal. Started by Eugene-born Cory Haynes, STYLSS has long been affiliated as a Verfied co-host, but tonight brings in producers from as far afield as Humbolt County, Nashville and Paris, along with the usual local suspects Eastghost and Gang$ign$. Here, Haynes, aka Quarry, gives us his essential tracks released through the label.
1. "Omniscient, They" by Eastghost
It's as unexpectedly mind-blowing as it is emotionally powerful while pushing the envelope of "electronic music," whatever that means. If you listen to anything from STYLSS, I would recommend giving Eastghost's "Omniscient" a listen in full.
2. "Mashdi" by Onhell
If Shlohmo and DJ Mustard worked together on a track, I would imagine it would sound similar to "Mashdi." The perfect vibes for cruising down any West Coast city street on a sunny day—or a rainy day, for that matter.
4. "Remain" by Shmuck the Loyal
5. "Huffin & Coffin" by Jvnitor
SEE IT: Verified: STYLSS Takeover, featuring Eastghost, Onhell, Shmuck the Loyal, Jvnitor, Quarry and more, is at Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison St., on Saturday, June 11. 9 pm. $8. 21+.
