Skrillex crowd-tests new music on Holy Ship
It seems like every day Skrillex is making moves in one way or another. Either teasing a swift clip of new music or word of an upcoming collaboration underway seems to surface, begging the question: Just how much new material is Skrillex sitting on? Between grainy Snapchat footage and brief clips of recent live performances, it looks as though Skrillex is packing a trove of new material with both originals and star-studded collaborations under the hood. OWSLA‘s head honcho set sail on HARD‘s second Holy Ship cruise of the year this past week, where some crisp camera footage by videographer extraordinaire, Glenjamn, captures Sonny crowd testing a thundering new jam.
The ID is quickly introduced by a sharp sample from a Skrillex live staple, “Imma Try It Out,” featuring the snarling, penetrating barrage of bass hits that are now quintessential Skrillex. Weaving together a scalding assault of laser fire and bulldozing synths in this forthcoming material, Sonny’s latest preview is an indicator of what’s ahead for the OWSLA leader’s 2015.
