It's been a relatively quiet few years for Skrillex. While the producer released a series of collaborative singles in 2019 -- including the Boys Noize and Ty Dolla $ign collab "Midnight Hour," which earned them all a Grammy nomination for best dance recording -- it's been awhile since we've gotten new solo work from the superstar producer.
That changed over the weekend, when Skrillex dropped a new track, "Kliptown Empyrean." Composed of a pitched up and chopped up vocal sample mixed in over spare, skittering percussion, the song is the first release of what looks to be a significant new project from the producer born Sonny Moore.
"Still finishing this main body of work," Moore wrote on Instagram when sharing the track, "but in the mean time I just made this today and wanted to put it out."
