Hip-hop has intersected with electronic music countless times throughout history - and a fair amount over the course of Skrillex's career alone. Following collaborations and remixes with the likes of A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg, the Los Angeles DJ/producer will soon add Saint Jhn to the growing list.

...That is, if comments made by Saint Jhn (real name Carlos St. John) hold any weight. The Brooklyn singer/songwriter/producer/emcee took to Twitter to reveal the full extent of their work together, which he says is "maybe 6 and a half" songs.

In fairness, given St. John's previous discography their collaborations may not even take the form of hip-hop. In addition to writing songs for the likes of Usher and Rihanna, he boasts production credits on songs by such electronic music acts as Gorgon City and Kiesza.

With that in mind, Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore) makes perfect sense as a collaborator. Before he became known for his growling brand of bass music, Moore had delivered an eclectic range of music in his debut EP, My Name Is Skrillex. Prior to that, he made a name for himself as frontman of the post-hardcore band From First To Last.
