Ellie Goulding played her long-rumored follow-up collab with former BF Skrillex, titled Because, during her Feb. 17 Goodnight Valentine Mix on Annie Mac Presents.
Goulding ended her set with the sexy future-beats production from Skrillex peppered with her warm tones chopped and pitched in the way that made us fall in love with Summit.
The beat itself is a slow-churner strewn with syncopated drums and finger snaps atop Skrill’s smooth bass accents, creating the perfect (love) nest for the passionate vocals and your new go-to gettin’-busy track. The overall feel would suggest his time with artists like Flume and Emoh Instead has added to his growing tendency toward the mellower side of things that surfaced with 2013’s Leaving EP. However, Sonny shared the history of the track in a tweet, making it pre-date much of his recent activity.
That track was made in a hotel room 2 years ago...I almost forgot what it sounded like...thanks for droppn this beat @elliegoulding 😊— SKRILLEX (@Skrillex) February 17, 2014
