Seven tunes this week sent over from Skrill for another installment of Skrillex Selects. Stream each track and read on below for some commentary.
DUCKY – Rain Dance
Leading the new set is a track off our latest NEST release, an EP from LA artist DUCKY. “Rain Dance” is the second of three songs featured on her Lost Angeles EP, and it was premiered last week through Anna Lunoe’s Beats 1 Radio show. This one is warm snuggly house-y goodness. Check the full EP here and get to know DUCKY through our recent interview.
Kill The Noise – FUK UR MGMT
Kill the Noise‘s excellent OWSLA released full length, Occult Classic is here, and “FUK UR MGMT” is a definite highlight off the album. It’s west coast style bassline house made with gnarly KTN perfection.
Keith Ape – It G Ma (FAWKS Flip)
LA up and comer, FAWKS gets some shine in the latest pack with a nod to one of his earliest anthems, a take on Keith Ape’s “It G MA”. This one goes off every time.
Ivy Lab – Sunday Crunk (Mefjus Remix)
TWRK – Helicopter (Sliink Remix)
Jersey Club innovator DJ Sliink gets tapped to remix TWRK’s Helicopter single for Mad Decent. The result is some hair-raising, vocal chopping, body-moving flames. Sliink goes in on some new ways to approach percussion and rhythm for jersey cut in this one. Biggup.
ZHU x Skrillex x THEY – Working For It
The don, Zane Lowe gives us the premiere of a new collaboration between ZHU, Skrillex and THEY which sees each artist continuing to blur the lines between the worlds of pop and dance music. “Working For It” grooves with a catchy tropical bounce while giving us a taste of the type of collaborations we’ll be hearing throughout 2016.
YOGI – SIRI ft. Elliphant & Pusha T
YOGI and Pusha T, the team that brought you the massive “Burial” single, returns with a new release through OWSLA, this time featuring the charming vocals of Elliphant. The new “SIRI” single is the apocalyptic evolution of trap which blends razor sharp synths with expansive high res atmospheres.
