Kaskade and deadmau5 have another Kx5 heater on their hands, this time with steaming hot electronic duo SOFI TUKKER. Today marks the release of “Sacrifice,” which continues on into the techno-leaning direction that Kx5 has established through the released singles thus far.
“Sacrifice” is a booming, big-room track that also infuses a euphoric vocal line from SOFI TUKKER’s Sophie Hawley-Wild. While SOFI TUKKER on their own don’t typically delve into music this heavy, the collab works wonders. Here’s SOFI TUKKER had to say about the collab:
It’s not the style of song we usually create, which tends to be more fun and light. So collabing with deadmau5 and Kaskade for their Kx5 project felt like the perfect fit. They bring it into this dark techno world which amplifies the drama while making you dance. Somehow it feels so appropriate to have that soft emotional vocal followed by such a dark drop. We’ve been playing it out a bunch in our sets and it goes off every single time.
Kaskade and deadmau5’s eponymous Kx5 album is due out next month, on March 17.
