Track of the Day

Skrillex takes a hard left with the Burial-influenced "Leaving"

It’s definitely not everyday that we’d ply you with a YouTube link for the Track of the Day, but when Skrillex takes a hard left into Burial-esque vocal treatments and garagey beats, you tend to throw out a few conventions yourself.

“Leaving,” which Skrillex uploaded today to his official YouTube page, is hardly the kind of track we’ve come to expect from the OWSLA CEO. Full of slow, chunky beats, cinematic synths and pianos, and a pitched-down, clipped-up vocal sample, the track signifies what might be an entirely new direction for the US dubstep wunderkind. 2013 looks brighter than ever.
