Mr. Oizo & Skrillex Hold A Party At The 'End Of The World': Listen
French experimental dance producer Mr. Oizo puts the real in “surreal.” He and his friend Flat Eric (a puppet that is apparently a dog but looks nothing like one) regularly put forth some of the funkiest and downright bizarre noise dance floors have ever heard.
There was that time he teamed with shock rocker Marilyn Manson for “Solid,” with lyrics that included “you look like s--t when you dance.” There was the time he told everyone to “check that vomit on the floor” at HARD Summer 2013. Now there's the time he and Skrillex got together to celebrate the “End of the World.”
The collaborative track may be Mr. Oizo's most straightforward and Skrillex' biggest case of disco fever to date. It's got a good breakbeat, some slick-talk samples, and a simple hook that repeats with various instrumentation. It's all about the noises here, and we all know Skrillex loves his sounds. Is this the start of a beautiful friendship? Who knows. Go get Mr. Oizo's All Wet out on Ed Banger today.
