Skrillex premieres collaboration with Valentino Khan on OWSLA Radio
With the advent of his “OWSLA Radio” show on Beats 1, Skrillex now has a new avenue to premiere unreleased music, further fueling the indefatigable hype machine of his unreleased back-catalogue. In his most recent broadcast, Skrillex showcased “Slam Dunk,” a forthcoming collaboration with Valentino Khan and rapper Kstylis. Purported on the broadcast to be “the ‘Jumpman’ of the summer,” Skrillex and Khan’s creation is crafted deftly for the festival format.
Skrillex’s signature gridiron bass groans vie with Valentino Khan’s caustic trap synthesis for dominance among the continually changing rhythmic backdrop. Atop the producers’ chaotic canvas, Kstylis delivers pop-driven verses that temper the raucous instrumental, allowing it the possibility to garner airplay appeal.
