Listen to Skrillex’s new non-dubstep song with Chance The Rapper
Skrillex finally dropped his rumored collaboration track with Chance The Rapper on Monday night just hours before streaming his new record “Recess” with no advance warning Tuesday. You can listen to the Chance collaboration “Coast Is Clear” below and stream the whole album here. It also features cameos from Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos, Diplo, and many more.
In early 2013, Skrillex surprised everyone with the “Leaving” EP, a departure from the dubstep blitzkrieg of his 2011 album “Bangarang” that catapulted him to fame. “Leaving” showed a unexpected new level of subtlety and nuance. “Coast Is Clear,” while not exactly subtle, is further adrift from the dubstep chaos that launched Skrillex. Pumping distorted synths still underly parts of the track, but if anything it nods to throwback sounds like Outkast in the overall presentation. “Recess” is officially out March 18.
