Skrillex and Sirah are back together again, this time on ‘Deadbeat’
Skrillex has soundtracked the summer with a slew of new material, most of which has found the bass giant reuniting with old collaborators, along with a handful of exciting new tag teams as well. From the Damian Marley and Ty Dolla $ign co-venture “So Am I” to DJ Sliink and Wale’s jersey club ammunition “Saint Laurent,” Skrillex has been all over the map in 2017, capped most recently by his long-awaited take on Kendrick Lamar‘s smash hit “Humble.” Now the OWSLA head honcho is pulling at nostalgic heartstrings once again, linking up with long-time collaborator Sirah for a brand new joint product called “Deadbeat.”
Skrillex fans know Sirah from career-launching products like “Bangarang” and “Kyoto.” The pair’s latest finds the LA-based lyricist riding a heavy handed drum beat that plays upon the moody blend of bass, house, and hip-hop that Skrillex has been experimenting with lately. “Deadbeat” will be available on streaming platforms via OWSLA on September 29.
