See Skrillex play out new unreleased material at Contact Festival [WATCH]
Now that Skrillex resumed playing shows, the dance music don has been teasing an abundance of unreleased material. One recent example was caught on New Year’s Eve at Contact Festival — an untitled edit of Skrillex’s infamous Benny Benassi “Cinema” remix — in Vancouver after first being played at Fuji Rock in Japan. While most are used to the hard hitting mayhem induced by his emo metal electronic upbringing, the unreleased tones seem to suggest a traverse towards the pop realm. With high-pitched vocal chops and and uplifting melody, the track turns the original from anger to pure bliss.
In 2018, Skrillex dove into the producer credit world, collaborating with big label superstars such as Camila Cabello, The Weeknd, Kimbra, Jennifer Lopez, and Lykke Li. He did an original remix for Travis Scott and Drake‘s “Sicko Mode,” worked with his original band, From First To Last, and collaborated with up and comer, Elohim, on more subdued OWSLA released tracks.
From the sounds of it, it seems Skrillex is in a happier, more comfortable place, making waves in some of the most distributed tracks on the planet.
