LICK steps up to Skrillex’s ‘Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites’ for ambitious new remix
Yes! Oh my gosh!
LICKick has delivered a hefty riddim flip to Skrillex‘s groundbreaking, Grammy Award-winning “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites.” With the addition of a high-energy build after the original’s standard buildup, the remix throws a screaming synth into a modified, monstrous dubstep break. The second drop utilizes the original’s infectious melody in the fill, locking in listeners with a tickling pre-break crawl before the remix’s thrashing riddim section.
The “DARK VIBE ORDER” producer is known for his signature flips, gaining traction from a catalog packed with previous edits, from Skrillex and Wolfgang Gartner‘s “Devil’s Den,” to Virtual Self‘s “Angel Voices,” Kiiara‘s “Feels,” and many more. Most recently, Lick added a darker touch to Excision and Illenium‘s beautiful cross-genre “Gold” track. Lick performed at Digital Mirage earlier this month, and unleashed his set on Soundcloud.
