“Summit” – Skrillex (ft. Ellie Goulding)
Skrillex has been crowned by some as the King of American Dubstep. To write an article on Skrillex is foolish because people are so polarized on his music, his way of life, and his influence on contemporary dance music.
So call me a fool, but I’ve chosen a Skrillex song for this week. This one technically falls under the massive genre of Dubstep but it’s also one of the more relaxing, chill songs to come from Skrillex, maybe ever.
The song is called Summit and features Ellie Goulding — best known for her song Lights among others. Rumor has it that Skrillex and Ellie just wrapped up their long term relationship and perhaps this was the track that started it all. Maybe it’s fitting then that we enjoy this tranquil bass-filled soundscape. Have a chilled out Friday, and know that the rest of Skrillex’s discography doesn’t really reflect this style, but that’s why I chose it. Enjoy!
