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.

TroyBoi unveils that another Skrillex collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign is on the waySkrille Live Aug 2017 Billboard 1548 0

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.”

Skrillex summoned for Lykke Li ‘two nights’ follow-up with Ty Dolla $ign

Skrillex summoned for Lykke Li ‘two nights’ follow-up with Ty Dolla $ignSkrille Feb 10 2017 Billboard 1548

Skrillex continues his omnipresent 2019 push across production landscapes both near and far from dance music’s earshot with his latest credit alongside indie/dream-pop vocalist, Lykke Li, and resounding hip-hop figurehead, Ty Dolla $ign.

The offering comes in the form of a sequel of sorts to Li’s “two nights,” which originally featured rap support from Aminé. The updated offering, “two nights part ii,” is far less subtle than its slow-burning predecessor, as would be expected from a track bearing Skrillex’s auspicious earmark.

The initial “two nights” appeared on Li’s so sad so sexy EP. The follow-up is scheduled for inclusion on Li’s impending EP due July 26, still sad still sexy.

Earlier this year, Skrillex intimated he had droves of new “random” releases poised for the foreseeable future. So far, he’s made good on that promise. In addition to his long-awaited Dog Blood resurgence, Skrillex recently surfaced on a deliciously raucous track with TroyBoi, “WARLORDZ.” The OWSLA boss will also appear on Ed Sheeran’s impending album, which will see release tomorrow, July 12.

serpentwithfeet and Ty Dolla $ign master the art of the brotherly duet on new track, “Receipts”

This post was originally published on this site

serpentwithfeet and Ty Dolla $ign seem like they must have been destined to meet, gravitating celestial bodies of buttery voice drawn close like binary stars breaking binaries together. Brothers in sultriness, inquisition, and poetic mastery, the two singers now find themselves together—both geographically in L.A. and musically on serpentwithfeet’s first track since last year’s soil.

About “Receipts,” the new track out now via Secretly Canadian and Tri Angle Records, serpentwithfeet writes:

I began writing “Receipts” when I first moved to Los Angeles last summer. I was and still am mystified by the city – the mountains, the men, the hummingbirds. I played an early demo for Ty Dolla $ign and he asked to join me on the track. This song carries a lot of weight for me because it’s a snapshot of two brothers rhapsodizing about unforeseen romance. Ty is a huge part of my LA story so “Receipts” feels like a perfect document.

Watch out, Philly! Looks like L.A. is entering the ring to box you for the title of “city of brotherly love,” and this new track is a strong first punch. Listen to “Receipts” right now down below, and read about our love of serpentwithfeet’s last album on our Favorite 50 Music Releases of 2018.

The choral soul of serpentwithfeet‘s latest single is pure and euphoric in tone. Viscous in pace, the production filters slowly through listeners speakers’ in a languid lag and ultimately, proves worth the wait. Dubbed “Receipts,” the track arrives nearly a year after serpentwithfeet’s debut album, soil, released June 2018.

The refinement with which serpentwithfeet vocalizes “Receipts” reminds those familiar with the artist’s musical journey that serpentwithfeet previously studied classical vocal techniques during his time at at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts. Yet, the vocal poise of “Receipts” is not attributable only to serpentwithfeet’s technique. A hip-hop entity who characteristically scales the rap to crooning continuum with ease, Ty Dolla $ign lends his inimitable vocals to the cut, which serpentwithfeet describes as “a snapshot of two brothers rhapsodizing about unseen romance.”
