Skrillex has kept up his unyielding release pace with a new single and reached the top of one of the most influential charts. Vintage Culture also has a new track, while the upcoming releases were announced by &Me (Keinemusik) and CamelPhat. Finally, Human Rias focuses on important, socially engaged topics in a new music project in cooperation with the EXIT festival.
Skrillex: Video Single “Real Spring“ and Another Beatport #1
The unstoppable series of new tracks Skrillex has released since the beginning of the year continues with the new video single “Real Spring“ featuring Swedish rapper, singer, and producer Bladee! Meanwhile, last week’s single, “Leave Me Like This,“ has taken the very top of Beatport’s Top 100, one of the world’s most influential hype-generating music charts.
These singles were preceded by “Rumble“ (ft. Fred again.. & MC Flowdan) and “Way Back“ (ft. PinkPantheress & Trippie Redd). All the tracks released so far will be combined on the double album scheduled for release this year, which Skrillex announced back on 1st January with a caption QFF/DGTC 2023. The meaning of “QFF“ is as-yet unknown, while “DGTC“ links to the producer’s 2022 tweet “Don’t Get Too Close, “ which could be the album’s name.
Vintage Culture: New Single “If I Live Forever“
Brazilian producer and DJ Vintage Culture also presented a new single – the track is called “If I Live Forever“ and serves as an overture for the upcoming album scheduled for release this year.
This will be the Brazilian producer/DJ’s first LP after a series of successful collabs, including megahits “Slow Down“ (Ft. Maverick Sabre, Jorja Smith & Slow Motion), “I Will Find“ (ft. Rooftime), “Save Me“ (ft. Adam K & MKLA), and covers of cult songs like “Another Brick In The Wall“ and “Blue Monday.“
