Hate on Justin Bieber all you want, his almost immediate rise to stardom is something every artist would welcome. Imagine posting a few videos of yourself singing, or playing guitar, or whatever and the next thing that happens is you\’re on the phone with Usher talking about a record deal. It\’s the dream, and for one lucky producer, Skrillex made that dream come true.
\”I found this remix after I got a tweet from someone saying, \’Hey check out this bootleg some kid did,\’… I flipped out immediately and it\’s been in my sets ever since.\” Skrillex told FADER about Jai Wolf\’s remix of \”Ease My Mind,\” a track from his most recent album, Recess.
Hailing from New York, Jai Wolf challenged Skrillex\’s legendary ability to meld genres together with this remix. Beginning with a soulful intro, we are quickly introduced to a drop that melds 808 trap beats with the sounds of the Middle Eastern Desert. Listen to the full track below.
Jai Wolf\’s remix of \”Ease My Mind,\” will be included on Skrillex\’s Ease My Mind/Ragga Bomb Remix Ep due out November 24. The EP will be released through Skrillex\’s label OWSLA and will feature remixes from GTA, Zomboy vs. Skrillex, and Teddy Killerz as well.
