From Kendrick to What So Not
Every few weeks, bass mega-star Skrillex hits SoundCloud with another round of tracks he’s vibing to. After a couple of stacked editions in March featuring the likes of Valentino Khan, Lapalux and Brodinski, the OWSLA boss has just delivered his essential listening for April.
This time around, he’s honed in on six tracks from across the musical spectrum, including a standout cut from Kendrick Lamar’s new album To Pimp a Butterfly and the Rusty Hook flip of Jack Ü x Justin Bieber’s “Where Are Ü Now.” He also includes What So Not’s new one, “Gemini,” which is taken from the trap duo’s upcoming EP on Sweat It Out/OWSLA. (It’ll be their last release together as a production team – read more about that here.)
Skrillex recently made headlines with a cameo-heavy set to close Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, bringing his Jack Ü collaborators Diplo and Justin Bieber to the stage as the grand finale. As summer approaches, his schedule is ramping up again, with regular trips to Las Vegas, a Movement Detroit set alongside Boys Noize as Dog Blood and much more. He also just announced the return of his Full Flex Express tour, which is traveling across Canada in July with an all-star cast. This guy sure knows how to stay busy. Get into the April ‘Skrillex Selects’ below.
