OWSLA is a record label[2] and creative collective (OWSLA Goods) founded by Sonny "Skrillex" Moore and co-founded by Tim "Bitvargen" Smith, Kathryn Frazier, and Clayton Blaha. Skrillex announced the label on 17 August 2011.[3] The label's first release was Porter Robinson's Spitfire, which reached number one on Beatport.[4]

Prior to the record label, Skrillex had teamed up with Zedd, 12th Planet and Flinch to release a free EP titled Skrillex Presents Free Treats Volume:001 in 2011.[5] The 19-track sequel was released on the record label on March 13, 2012 and also included KOAN Sound, The M Machine, Ghastly, Zardonic and Alvin Risk among many others.[6]

The name "OWSLA" is a reference to Richard Adams' fantasy novel Watership Down which is about a group of anthropomorphized rabbits who live in a Sandleford warren.[7]
