Skrillex and TroyBoi coalesce for full-throated battle cry, ‘WARLORDZ’ [Stream]
Skrillex has been back in electronic earshot in a big way this past year, vigorously venturing the festival front and continuously churning out high-caliber offerings both under his Boys Noize-assisted Dog Blood masthead, along with a recent Kelsey Lu remix. But he warned that the sun had only begun to rise on his release agenda for the year. Now he’s delivering on that promise.
He’s most recently taken up arms with worldly and ever-active torrential trap talent, TroyBoi. Their boisterous OWSLA-housed brainchild, “WARLORDZ,” is intuitively named for its audacious architects. The track exudes the complexity and dexterity of its creators, oscillating between throaty Asian vocals and tender piano-driven interludes.
