We first featured the talented NSTASIA on the site back in August with “Favor,” a smooth collab between her, Skrillex and Vindata. Today the singer/songwriter and TSIS regular Skrillex have come together once again for “Parachute,” a breezy single that showcases NSTASIA’s impressive vocal chops and Skrillex’s always impeccable sound design.
The most compelling aspect of “Parachute” is the effortless blend of genres represented in both the vocals and the production. Skrillex utilizes a dreamlike synth intro that slowly but surely brings in hip-hop-influenced percussion throughout the rest of the track. NSTASIA, on the other hand, possesses an R&B-style cadence and a silky, effortless tone that will float through any speaker.
This is far from Skrillex’s first dip into the hip-hop / R&B world – in just the past two months he dropped his highly anticipated remix of Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.” and linked with Sirah for unique single “Deadbeat.” After hearing “Parachute,” we can’t wait to hear more of this style from both Skrillex and NSTASIA. Check out the vibrant single below and enjoy!
