Skrillex\’s Los Angeles based label, OWSLA, has begun a series of initiatives to close out it\’s Nestivus charity drive, the proceeds of which will benefit Bridges for Music
Last year\’s drive raised over $8,000 for the international charity, which uses music through various means to improve our global society. Recently, the organization put plans into motion to build a music school in Langa; a small township in South Africa.
As another means to support Bridges for Music, OWSLA will be live streaming their holiday party to give fans the opportunity to watch and contribute, as well donating a portion of the nights total bar sales.
\”Anything that sits at the intersection of youth, music, art and charity is pretty much something we want to be involved in,\” says Blaise DeAngelo, OWSLA general manager. \”The whole idea is to reward our most dedicated fans while also raising money for Bridges for Music and their efforts to support young musicians in Cape Town.\”
One these rewards is Egg Nog, a compilation featuring some its most successful tracks of 2014, as well some new music from Trollphace, Riton, and more.
This compilation, as well as other prizes including headphones signed by Skrillex, new music, and Sonos speakers will be available to those who sign up for OWLSA\’s Drip.Fm subscription service. They even discounted the price to $9 for a limited time.
This isn\’t the first time Skrillex has been involved with Bridges for Music. He and 12th Planet hosted a workshop in Langa last year in support of the organization.
\”Since then, Sonny has remained close with Bridges for Music,\” says DeAngelo. \”They\’ve sort of become the official charity partner of OWSLA.\”
