has been busy lately. The infamous EDM mastermind dropped three new releases in just two weeks, and two of these releases were collaborations. One of them was the track "Saint Laurent," which was recorded with DJ SLiink and Wale, and the other was "Would You Ever," a collaboration with the producer Poo Bear. However, this week's surprising and unannounced Skrillex release is easily the best collaboration that he has put out so far.
The new track, titled "Favor," is a catchy, melodic single recorded with the electronic duo Vindata
and R&B artist NSTASIA
. The instrumentation is booming, bassy, and illustriously produced, but NSTASIA's vocals are the real star of the show here. She owns the track, and her multi-layered vocal harmonies are part of the reason why the production sounds so grand and immersive. "Favor" is certainly the most listenable song that Skrillex has put out in the past few weeks, and fans who were surprised by some of the directions that he's gone in with his recent material (especially his collaboration with Poo Bear) will want to give this new song a chance, because it's bound to be one of his most significant collaborations in recent memory.
