Skrillex has returned with a larger-than-life remix of the iconic “SICKO MODE” from Travis Scott and Drake. He teased this remix on his Instagram over the weekend, but it’s here in all its bass-boosted glory.
He follows the sequence and arrangement of the original song, beginning with its Drake-led introduction that’s fashioned to sound gritty and distorted. Once that iconic beat switch happens, Skrillex sounds the alarm with his signature yoink (“Purple Lamborghini,” anyone?) and thick, fat basses over the tune’s original percussion. Rather than simply transforming the single into a bass-boosted rendition, Skrillex breaks it down just after Travis’ verses into a trapped-out dubstep inferno. Keeping the energy at an all-time high, he beefs up Drake’s verse with thumping kicks, Reese basses, and gunshots firing off. Finally, Skrillex drives it home with an energetic Jersey club breakdown. Yeah, looks like he’s taken “SICKO MODE” to an unprecedented new level.
