Skrillex nabs major production credits on new Mariah Carey & Ty Dolla $ign song, ‘The Distance’Screen Shot 2017 12 18 At 10.32.44 AM

If there were any doubt about whether Skrillex‘s music has become one with the world of mainstream pop and R&B, his latest production credits will eradicate any remaining uncertainty.

Sonny Moore’s new production for Mariah Carey hits the big leagues. It’s no deep OWSLA cut, or anything like, say “Chicken Soup,”  but it is a welcome reimagining of the timelessness that Mariah Carey always so elegantly exudes. There’s still the Skrillex MO buried somewhere in the buoyant baseline.

Of course, Skrillex also reportedly has new music of his own on the way and judging by his hand at this number, it’s looking like anything is possible.

Jeremih and Ty Dolla $ign’s long-teased full-length collaboration, MihTy, FINALLY has a release date — just in time for sexy-Halloween costume-sex season (which I just made up), as well as a new advance single!

That’s right, MihTy will grace the world’s boudoirs…on October 26!

Ta dah!

Chatter about the album has persisted throughout the summer since the release of advance track “The Light,” but in the meantime Jeremih has been touring and Ty Dolla $ign has continued his frankly legendary tear as a guest vocalist for pretty much everyone in the biz.

Now, the duo has released a new track, “Goin’ Thru Some Thangz,” which you can listen to below.

Oh yeah: in addition, before the album drops, Jeremih & Ty Dolla $ign have announced they’ll be steaming up late night on October 22 when they play “The Light” on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Hey, awesome! Everyone watches that show!

Police body cam footage shows that Skrillex was with Ty Dolla $ign at time of rapper’s drug arrest [Watch]Skrille Feelcycle

Skrillex made a cameo not on a Ty Dolla $ign track, but during the rapper’s recent arrest in Atlanta on September 5 — the same evening that Dolla was to jointly headline for G-Eazy‘s North American Endless Summer Tour at the Cellairis Amphitheatre. Newly released video footage from the arresting officer’s body cam shows Skrillex follow the rapper out of the car as Ty Dolla $ign exits his Mercedes van to speak with the officers present at the scene.

The footage captures Dolla’s admission that he smoked weed earlier in the day, in response to one officer’s comment that he smelled marijuana. The video also follows the officer’s pat down of both Skrillex and Ty Dolla $ign, but only one of the two artists would emerge unscathed. Police immediately arrested the rapper for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and possession of cocaine after finding the drugs in Dolla’s bag. Ty Dolla $ign was released on bond on September 6, and is scheduled to appear in court on September 20.
