TroyBoi innovates the low end on ‘The Truth’Troyboi Concert Jatin Gandhi Photography

TroyBoi is back to flaunt his signature avant-garde bass buoyancy, stepping out on his recent OWSLA tenure, with “The Truth.” The jouncing number is trap-leaning in its overall orientation, but notably leaves the harder-hitting drops denotative of the sub-genre on the shelf this go around. The core constructive focus of “The Truth” is the beat, which staggers and shifts for the duration of the choppy cut. The tune is another hip-inspiriting notch in the London experimentalist’s vast and worldly catalog.

Resounding pops of bass and the assertive declaration of the vocal overlay, “I am the truth / I am the light,” which amplifies the speaker-pummeling power “The Truth” possesses. Deriving a freshness from the glitchy originality of its musical framework, “The Truth” catches TroyBoi doing what’s always set him apart: nuancing the low end.

Skrillex delivers long-awaited ‘Malokera’ with Ty Dolla $ign, TroyBoi, Brazilian stars MC Lan, Ludmilla [Stream]

The Summer of Skrillex continues with the LA-based super producer dropping off his next single, while both of his recently released Show Tracks still remain heavily on repeat. Skrill’s latest is a posse cut that finds him linked once again with TroyBoi, frequent collaborator Ty Dolla $ign, and dominating Brazilian forces Ludmilla and MC Lan on the long-teased “Malokera.” And, as per usual with Skrillex, it’s completely different than his other recent outputs—a knocking Brazilian funk framework polished by multilingual spits from Ty Dolla, Lan, and Ludmilla.

Skrillex and TroyBoi are forming a close production kinship as the latter joins OWSLA‘s roster, with “Malokera” serving as an enticing follow up to June’s “WARLORDZ.” Together they’ve delivered an infectiously bouncy original cut that proudly wears Brazil on its sleeve. Stream below.

Party Favor, A$AP Ferg & Juicy J – Wait A Minute (TroyBoi Remix)

OWSLA‘s newest signee TroyBoi has been putting out songs at a juggernaut pace. Fresh off the run of his V!BEZ trilogy on the aforementioned label, he’s just made a pit stop over at Area 25 to remix Party Favor, A$AP Ferg & Juicy J’s smash anthem, “Wait A Minute.” He opts for a stripped-down, yet heavier direction, replacing the melodic bits and overall fluidity of the original of the original with a chopped-up, trap arrangement set to a lower tempo. Doing so makes the vocal parts sound more cunning as well, ultimately making TroyBoi’s take on the tune a hugely destructive festival weapon.

Outside his busy release schedule, TroyBoi is also gearing up for an expansive Nostalgia tour, which kicks off in October and sees the artist travelling across the states all through the end of the year. More information and presale tickets can be found here.

TroyBoi showcases the third installment of his ‘V!BEZ’ series through OWSLA

TroyBoi has released the third edition of his extended play set, V!BEZ, via Skrillex‘s OWSLA imprint. The EP features five tracks, including the the recent heavy-hitting collaboration with the label’s head honcho, “WARLORDZ.” “PAPI CHULO” is the lead single arriving from the project, released in anticipation to the multi-release bundle, while “Do You?” is the South East Londoner’s hit released in 2015 that highlights his less-is-more attitude and original sound sequencing. “BAILE” and “HIGH” (feat. YAS) are the two new original singles from the project, as the former further pounds the producer’s highly percussive trap leanings while the latter caresses a more celestial feel, allowing the sultry vocalist to shine amidst contrasting percussive ad libs.

In a recent press release, Skrillex mentioned some words about the signee: “TroyBoi is special in that he’s always uncompromising and follows his own vision. I went to see him headline the Hollywood Palladium and he had as much crew as you would bring into a nightclub like aerial dancers and violinists. He’s his own wave, no one sounds like him. It could be the simplest beat and you know it’s TroyBoi right away. He’s unique and simple, he makes people move.”

TroyBoi unveils that another Skrillex collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign is on the way

Skrillex can’t stay out of the headlines thanks to the sheer volume of music and diverse nature of collaborations he has been releasing as of late. Over the last few weeks, the producer has released music with Ed Sheeran, Ty Dolla $ign, Lykke Li, and TroyBoi. According to a new Instagram post, it would appear Skrillex will not be stopping there.

TroyBoi took to Instagram to announce a new collaboration with the OWSLA boss that will feature Ty Dolla $ign, Lan, and Ludmilla titled “Malokera.” The new collaborative cut comes hot off the heels of Skrillex and TroyBoi’s boisterous “WARLORDZ” joint from earlier this summer. While TroyBoi did not specify a release date, he did note that the track is “coming soon,” giving Skrillex fans their next piece of material to look forward to. This track announcement comes only weeks after news surfaced of TroyBoi’s upcoming EP, PAPI CHULO, which will almost certainly feature “Malokera.”
