While speaking with XXL, Skrillex recnetly revealed upcoming collabs with some big hip hop names. Chance The Rapper and Mike Will Made-It were among the artists the DJ/Producer plans on releasing music with. Skrillex also revealed his other plans for 2014.
“The thing about it is that there are so many records that are being made right now, which is also exciting, and whether they come out tomorrow or a year from now, there’s definitely a lot of bullets in the chamber,” Skrillex said. “That’s the cool thing about it—previous to this last decade of the 2000s, it took so much to get people in the studio, managers going back and forth, who’s getting paid and this and that. And now it’s just like, people are working together collaboratively for fun, and then you see what happens afterwards. But yeah, we’re all working on projects together, for sure. There’s a lot of cool shit in the making right now.”
Skrillex also went on to detail how much respect he has for people like Mike Will.
“It was appreciation for each other, and it was just natural,” Skrillex says of Mike WiLL. “I didn’t really know much about Mike WiLL…and then I realized he was a self-made kid. He just had his whole crew with the Eardrummas, and created this whole collective of musicians that he grew up with. And it’s the same story we have with OWSLA, my record label.”
