After much anticipation, Skrillex has shared his remix of Travis Scott's recent single, "Sicko Mode." More critical music fans may not praise the Los Angeles DJ/producer's rendition, however, as it does little to improve upon the original.
Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore) minimally updated the first two and a half minutes of the source material. When a call and response between growling bass wobbles and chopped-up vocals finally finds its way into the arrangement, it hardly feels worth the wait.
Moore had teased a clip of his "Sicko Mode" remix on his Instagram Story last week. A month ago he broke an extended release hiatus with a Joyryde collab, and then he soon revealed that quite a bit more music is on the way.
The Skrillex remix of "Sicko Mode" is out now via Epic Records. Stream or download it across platforms here.
