I think you can make a pretty good argument that A$AP Rocky and Skrillex are the strangest musical pairing on a track within the past few years. I would give anything to know if they actually like each other, or are actually friends, because these guys are literally on different ends of the spectrum musically and style-wise. However, some are really thinking this is the future of dubstep, simply existing as a medium for great beats. Regardless, take the up and coming A$AP Rocky and arguably the most commercially successful Dubstep artist in Skrillex and you are going to get a good song.
Just yesterday, the official music video was released for their track “Wild for the Night”, which was shot in some impoverished sections of the Dominican Republic with a lot of locals, especially children with machine guns and flipping off the crowd while riding motorcycles.
Honestly, it’s a decent video but there is one thing I cannot shake; how out of place does Skrillex look in this entire thing. He is the only white person in the entire video full of African-Dominicans, Latino-Dominicans, and A$AP Mob. When there is the line “riding around with my n****s” and there is a close up of Skrillex I lost it.
Basically, this video gives me a lot of questions. Is this going to inevitably hurt A$AP’s street cred? Is Skrillex entering the rap community as a viable figure?
CMB TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!!!! What’s your opinion on this video and just A$AP and Skrillex working together in general. Leave a comment. Fuel a discussion!
The M Machine has been killin it ever since they signed to Skrillex’s OWSLA label. This track is nothing short of amazing. Beautiful vocals, dirty cut up drops, bass, synth, its got it all. Check it out and be sure to pick up their new EP “Metropolis Pt. 2″ when it drops Feb. 19th!
Now I know this is not the newest to most people who have already heard the leak when that came out about a month ago. We did not even bother posting the leak because the quality of the leak was horrible. Skrillex has officially released “Wild For The Night” which he works with rapper A$AP Rocky and OWSLA’s own Birdy Nam Nam. I don’t really listen to rap like I used to so I don’t have much to say about A$AP’s lyrics, however the beat put together by Skrillex and Birdy Nam Nam is nothing short of insane. Skrillex can do it all and he shows it with this track. Check it out! Oh and Happy Birthday Skrillz!
Whoa..wait what? New Skrillex?? Yeah thats right Sonny fans, Skrillex has just released his newest EP with a style that very different to any type of tracks Sonny has put out in the past. These three new tracks are being categorized into a different breed of garage dubstep called “future garage.” I am really digging this new style Sonny is trying. It’s great to see a producer try something new instead of sticking to the same style. Now check out these tracks out!
On this new track from the Twilight Breaking Dawn Soundtrack, Skrillex brings the beats while Ellie brings her amazing vocals to make a great song. If you don’t know by now that Skrillz and Ellie broke up then you do now, but that still doesn’t mean they cannot put out tracks together. The two of them working together always seems to produce something great and they did it again. This track may not have the womps and wubs that Skrillex is known for, but he can’t always just give you want you want. Check it out and decide for yourself if you like it.
I’ve always been a fan of this track with Damian Marley and Skrillex, and now Bro Safari and UFO! have given us a filthy trap remix that’ll get any party bumping. Check out the track and download it for yourself for free!
Skrillex and Nero come together to take this track by MONSTA and turn it into something from another world. This track has the great vocals from MONSTA and Skrillex & Nero brought some heavy bass to it. The second I heard this I loved it and so will you! Check it out!
