David Heartbreak's production is a perfectly muddled swirl of pitch-warped dancehall, mellow moombahton groove, and sparingly used dubstep. The Brooklyn-bred beatsmith's elastic amalgam also happens to make him an ideal fit for Skrillex's well-curated OWSLA imprint, whose diverse approach to hard-edged yet accessible electronic music is always leaning toward the future. That'll be the home for The Foundation, Heartbreak's 23rd (or so) EP release, though his first for the label. "Acid Youths (Legalize It!!)" is a woozy highlight from the May set featuring Danish producer Simon Sayz and established English toaster Feral is Kinky. The track now gets a perfectly fitting video treatment courtesy of director Ryan Staake, who ratchets up the tension when it becomes clear that a wonderfully debauched party is about to get broken up by a very serious set of SWAT team goons. Stick around for the surprise ending (spoiler alert: the piñata never saw it coming), and also the fine print: OWLSA does not condone "awesome" brought on by substance abuse, "especially in the presence of heavily armed law enforcement officers."
