EDM megastar Skrillex is currently in the midst of a Brooklyn takeover, performing at various BK venues this entire week. Last night at the Brooklyn Bowl, he dropped a welcome surprise for fans: a brand new collaboration with none other than Chance The Rapper. Although we’ve known a project between the two has been in the works ever since producer Mike WiLL Made It posted a picture of himself with the two in the studio on Instagram last month and Do Androids Dance previously speculated that Skrillex may have attempted to sign the notoriously independent rapper, last night confirmed the pair have made new music together. Interestingly it sounds unlike any of Skrillex’s previous work. It’s very vocal heavy and linear without the heart-stopping drop Skrillex is known for, ending with electronically manipulated guitar riffs.
Skrillex recently hinted to XXL there’s plenty more where this came from saying, “The thing about it is that there are so many records that are being made right now—which is also exciting—and whether they come out tomorrow or a year from now, there’s definitely a lot of bullets in the chamber.”
Chance has also been playing very coy on social media, which might mean something larger than this one track could be on the way sooner than we think:
