Waiting never sounded so good.
RL Grime, What So Not, and Skrillex teamed up for a monstrous new track called “Waiting.” The new record has been referred to as “a perfect blend of the three heavyweight producers’ talents, merging eerie vocal chops, ominous but beautiful synths, and expertly-crafted drums into a dance masterpiece for the end of the year.” Personally I wonder what they use, individually, to make this magic. Could it be the M-Audio Fast Track Pro or the Akai Professional MPD218 Pad Controller? The world may never know. Finally, you can stream the new record below. “Waiting” is out now, everywhere, via Waiting 2016. Read more about “Waiting” on NPR.
