Skrillex Shares His Favorite Tracks
Each week Skrillex picks his favorite tracks of the week and uploads them to a playlist for your convience. This is a very special selection as EDM.com's good friends ATLiens and Party Thieves made the list with their Main Course release "Chief." This is one of the freshest trap tunes we've heard in a minute and we're happy to see Skrillex giving it the love it deserves. You can read NEST HQ's description of each track below:
Hundred Waters – Show Me Love [OWSLA]
You’ll remember this one as the leadoff track from Hundred Waters’ sophomore album, The Moon Rang Like A Bell, or possibly from the feelsy Coca Cola ad in the Super Bowlearlier this month. Nicole’s layered a cappella is beyond beauty and inescapably goosebump-inducing. If you like this one, make sure to check out Nicole’s acoustic version due out on the Remix LP later this month.
Dub Phizix and Strategy – Buffalo Charge [Senkasonic]
As Manchester DnB stalwart Dub Phizix describes, “This song is about buffalos.” What he doesn’t tell you is that “Buffalo Charge” is a skanking beast of a tune with a 100mph flow from homie and collaborator, Strategy. This one doesn’t sound like anything else you’ve listened to today.
ZHU x DJ Snake x DJ Mustard – Faded 2.0 [unreleased]
Two of the biggest producers in Hip Hop in 2014 revamp one of the biggest dance music tunes of the year. “One night in L.A we did this shit – thought we’d drop it,” says the Paris x Los Angeles connection. Glad they did, as they’ve transformed ZHU’s original, druggy vibe into a beastly, trapped out bruiser.
Party Thieves & ATLiens – Chîef [free download]
This is easily the biggest tune from our friends at Main Course so far in 2015. As our writer alphaGraph warned when we covered the collab from Party Thieves & ATLiens a couple weeks back, “The first half of the tune is a surefire bet for any debaucherous audience or lowkey house party, but beware of that second drop; it’s got some serious weight behind it.”
Keith Ape – 잊지마 (It G Ma) (feat. JayAllDay, Loota, Okasian & Kohh) [free download]
A+ Korean Rap from Keith Ape and a bunch of homies. If you haven’t seen the video for this yet, make sure you watch it.
