Welcome back, Skrillex.
After more than a year’s waiting time, Skrillex has finally green lit his highly anticipated tie-up with Noisia, josh pan, and Dylan Brady, “Supersonic (My Existence).” Initially derived out of josh pan and Dylan Brady’s 2019 OWSLA released LP This Car Needs Some Wheels, the release—which had been branded a remix only up until the former’s Instagram update—was welcomed in during Noisia’s Northern Bass Festival in Christchurch, New Zealand right as the year struck midnight and follows the OWSLA label head’s previous double dose of comeback singles in May, “Too Bizarre” with Swae Lee and Siiickbrain as well as “Butterflies” with Four Tet and Starrah.
When stacking it up against Skrillex’s prior two outings, “Supersonic (My Existence)” plods back towards Los Angeles legend’s production foundation towards darkened, heavy bass music. The now remix-turned-original slides in at a half-time D’n’B tempo as both Skrillex and Noisia fill out the original vocal cut with vehement layers of sub-bass, convulsing drum patterns, and gated synths clashed in between josh pan’s spine-chilling lyrics. Nothing short of a monstrous mega-collaboration, “Supersonic (My Existence)” threads a new experimental approach in Skrillex’s comeback campaign.
