Skrillex and Kanye West collaboration shelved, will ‘be on something eventually’
Skrillex‘s production for Kanye West had been anticipated for a year before the rapper’s latest album, Yeezus, was released without the dubstep maestro in tow. Instead, the album had been led by Daft Punk, who prodcued four major tracks for Yeezus following their own Random Access Memories. But in a recent interview, album contributor Mike Dean reveals that the record was too dubstep for Yeezus and that it has been shelved for a later date.
“You’ll find there’s no bass wobbles on this album. Dubstep is really big right now, but it’s not something we could use in our production styles. We met up with Skrillex… there’s one song that’s sitting around that’s pretty good– it’ll be on something eventually. It had been in the running since last year. It’s a work in progress.”
