Skrillex debuts soulful new song with Chance the Rapper
EDM DJ and Chicago emcee are working with Mike WiLL Made It
On Skrillex’s first of five shows in Brooklyn last night, he unveiled a new track from his recent collaboration with Chicago emcee Chance the Rapper. Watch a fan-made video from the set below.
The EDM producer — known for his massive dubstep sound — gives Chance the Rapper’s verses a soulful spin, then drops in a thick drum ’n’ bass beat around the two-minute mark.
The unnamed track is likely the result of Skrillex and Chance hitting the studio with hip-hop producer Mike WiLL Made It. In a recent interview, Skrillex told XXL that the trio is "working on projects together.” "Whether they come out tomorrow or a year from now, there’s definitely a lot of bullets in the chamber,” Skrillex said.
Skrillex will continue his Takeovers tour through March 1, playing back-to-back gigs in Brooklyn, Amsterdam and Barcelona. For another taste of Chance the Rapper’s genre-shifting collaborations, watch the video below from his "Life Round Here" duet with James Blake.
