Skrillex drops ominous new single ‘Rumble’ featuring Fred Again.. & Flowdan: Listen

Skrillex is ready to “Rumble”. On Wednesday (January 4), the producer dropped a new single, a collaboration with Fred again.. and UK grime MC Flowdan.

The song adopts elements of grime and bass while stretching into the experimental realms of electronic sound design that have been Skrillex’s signature since he exploded onto the scene more than ten years ago with his era-defining take on bass music.

Clocking in at a scant two minutes and 26 seconds, the song packs a heavy punch with a sinewy, choppy beat smouldering in the deepest vibrations of the low end and a bridge composed of a voice that’s turned all the way up. Above that, Flowdan delivers an ominous flow around and “killers in the jungle” – a feeling matched with an almost imperceptible growl.

“Rumble” first saw the light of day (or ahem, club darkness) when Fred again.. dropped it in a series of 2022 shows, including his record-setting Boiler Room show in July. After sharing the track today amid massive hype, Skrillex also revealed that a joint single with PinkPantheress and Trippie Redd is coming on Thursday, Jan. 5.

Both of these songs are presumably from Skrillex’s upcoming double album, which he teased New Year’s Day. The project will mark his first solo LP since 2014’s Immersionwhich peaked at No. 4 on Billboard 200 in April 2014 at the height of the EDM boom. This album announcement read “QFF/DGTC 23”, with the acronyms widely understood to stand for the names of a pair of albums coming in 2023.
