Annie Mac premieres Skrillex’s remix of Hundred Waters’ ‘Show Me Love,’ featuring Chance the Rapper and more
In December 2015, the first preview of Skrillex‘s reunion with Chance The Rapper found its way onto the Internet when a fan caught a video of Mija playing the his remix of Hundred Waters’ “Show Me Love” at her DC show. The video has since been removed from YouTube, but UK radio authority Annie Mac has relieved OWSLA loyalists by premiering the remix on her BBC Radio 1 show, right on the heels of Miami Music Week.
Skrillex and Chance the Rapper’s first product together, “Coast is Clear,” held a rapid fire, percussion arrangement that tended to the producer’s bass-driven sound, however, this collaboration falls more into Chance’s realm of easy listening. Skrillex’s “Show Me Love” remix is built on a mind-numbing backbone rooted in hip hop and Hundred Waters’ mellifluous, a capella vocals. Atop this foundation, Chance the Rapper spits flowing verses, accompanied by singers Moses Sumney and Robin Hannibal, whose fervent duet provides a fitting conclusion to the remix.
