Skrillex and Boys Noize drop rhythmic dub mix of ‘Midnight Hour’
After releasing triple collaboration “Midnight Hour” alongside Ty Dolla $ign, Skrillex and Boys Noize have dropped off an exclusive two-tracker remix package via OWSLA. Containing the duo’s own alternate dub mix as well as one by Desolat label boss Loco Dice, the combination release is available to listen on Beatport here. Having employed the dub mix previously in their sets, the Dog Blood co-members put an energizing spin on their original track that perfects it for dance-floor mayhem.
With select isolation of Ty Dolla $ign’s main vocals, Skrillex and Boys Noize’s dub mix boosts the bass, emphasizes the speedy elements of hard-hitting percussions, and ramps up the four-on-the-floor intensity. Weaving in two vocal interludes that serve as pre-build up sections, the remix is a pure manifestation of a dub mix—stripped to the pure energy of bass and percussion. A true relishing of club movements, Skrillex and Boys Noize’s re-rendering of their track places vocal and melodic embellishments secondary to the core elements of rhythm and pace and cut through the noise to deliver an incisive dance beat.
