Skrillex’s Next Collab is for “Spring Breakers”
Looks like dubstep lord, Skrillex, is taking his beats to the big screen for the new film, “Spring Breakers.” In a recent interview with Pitchfork, Music Supervisor, Randall Poster, revealed that Skrillex is indeed working on original music for the film, due out sometime early next year. He called Skrillex, “just brilliant, ” and added, “I felt like I swallowed the music. It was like Alien, like it went into me.”
“Spring Breakers” follows four college girls who rob a fast food restaurant to pay for their spring break getaway, starring Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez. On Thursday, Skrillex hinted on Twitter what his contribution will sound like: “it’s more or less traditional scoring … dont expect dance floor bangers! going great … very different style of production for me!” he wrote. Other EDM artists have ventured over to the film side, like Paul Oakenfold’s “Dread Rock” for the second installment of The Matrix trilogy, and Tiësto, who reworked the Mission Impossible theme for the fourth installment of the film series.
