Skrillex is a man of many shades — from massive bass tunes to pop jams, he knows how to hit the sweet spot. Skrillex and Poo Bear were behind Fifth Harmonies latest single “Angel,” their second single promoting their upcoming album which is set to release on August 25. The producer pair did a great job highlighting the girls’ vocals, crafting a deep bass canvas with minimal percussion and synths that results in a palatable record for the masses.
Fifth Harmony lost their 5th member Cabello several months ago, who will be releasing her own album later this year. Stream “Angel” in full below.
Listeners of “Would You Ever,” the Skrillex collaboration with Poo Bear that dropped last week, were understandably surprised to find the “Purple Lamborghini” producer’s name tied to a house music production. Yet, those disoriented by the unexpected deviation in aesthetic might now put their minds at ease with the knowledge that Skrillex won’t permanently be crossing over genres, the confirmation verbalized by Skrillex’s remix of LH4L and Billion Dollars’ “Neoprene.”
Uploaded today, July 31, via Proximity, the remix is a longtime fan favorite, and sees Skrillex deliver his celebrated, formidable dubstep roots in a fashion which many fans missed on “Would You Ever.”
Skrillex has had a quiet first half of 2017 with a reduced tour schedule and a sparse offerings in terms of new music. In the past month, the producer has hinted at future collaborations and a potential revival of Dog Blood.
Skrillex enthusiasts can breath easy because today, however, as the producer dropped a new collaboration with with Justin Bieber‘s preferred producer Poo Bear. Dubbed “Would You Ever,” the track is a new direction for the famed producer with a groovier, more pop skewing sound. The song still has Skrillex’s signature complex layering and upbeat bpm, but Poo Bear’s vocals ensure this will be both a radio and club hit.
