Get the latest Skrillex Selects
You don’t have to be a fan of his music to know that Skrillex is one of the most widely respected tastemakers across dance music. With a keen ear for the next big thing, Sonny provides some selective picks to cap the week off and give fans a little taste of what’s being playing on his iPod recently. His picks for this past week come in with a genre-spanning collection ranging from Schoolboy Q to up-and-coming force Mija.
With remixes of MUST DIE!‘s “Hellcat” starting to trickle out, Habstrakt’s electro remix leads the weeks selections, giving “Hellcat” a bit of mobility and shuffle. Schoolboy Q’s radio-dominating R&B cut “Studio” switches the vibe, however the welcomed hip-hop element fits in well with the rest of the short playlist alongside Branchez chilled-out rendition of Alesso‘s “Heroes.”
Teddy Killerz‘ remix of Skrillex’s “Ragga Bomb” serves a heavy dose of drum n’ bass, but easily the best selection from this week comes by way of Mija and Ghastly’s remix of Diplo’s “Biggie Bounce.” The pair flip Diplo’s twerk-rap crossover into a bumping trap-inspired rework, clipping vocal cuts into a dirty one-two punch.
Another week, another handful of crisp jams to carry you through your weekend courtesy of Skrillex.
