Skrillex lends production expertise to rising R&B artist Dounia on ‘GREYGOOSE’
The last 48 hours have been a whirlwind for Skrillex fans. Immediately following the 10th anniversary of the producer’s breakout Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites, Skrillex dropped new single “Kliptown Empyrean” as a surprise release. As the fever pitch a forthcoming sophomore album reaches an all-time high, Skrillex continues to dabble in projects outside the scope of electronic dance music, most recently, lending his production talents to R&B singer Dounia‘s “GREYGOOSE.”
Hip-hop and R&B projects have provided a reliable creative outlet for Skrillex—he’s continuously proven time and time again through phenomenal collaborations with Lil Tecca, Kanye West, and so many more, that he is not confined to one style of music, and “GREYGOOSE” is no exception. While the production on “GREYGOOSE” lacks guttural, distorted bass growls, Skrillex flexes his sound design and vocal chop mastery, intertwining beautifully with the soft voice of Dounia. Dounia undoubtedly recognizes Skrillex’s influence, stating to Hip Hop N More, “I align with icons only, it’s kind of my thing.” Stream “GREYGOOSE” below.
