Just a couple weeks ago, Skrillex threw down a very special set at FORM Arcosanti. At first listen, we were blown away per usual by the DJ’s current taste.
Upon second listen, we heard what sounds like a brand new ID. And, it sounds a lot like it could be a Skrillex x Missy Elliott collaboration. It’s a little hard to tell with the vocal processing — it’s possible there are two vocalists on the track or it’s all Missy.
The ID even references, lyrics from “Work It” — this the kinda beat that go ra-ta-ta.
Skrillex has cut down drastically on shows, but he’s been staying busy in the studio. It only makes sense that he would use a rare appearance like this one to test run some new material. The verdict: Missy’s (or whoever’s) quirky lyrics matched with in-your-face bass is most definitely a sure hit.
As pointed out by a fellow staff writer, the song definitely has some Wiwek vibes. There’s a low-key jungle terror sound going on here, so we wouldn’t be surprised if he’s behind the production as well.
Whatever the case, here’s that new fire for your listening pleasure!
