Adventure to Underground Toyko in Skrillex & Vic Mensa’s “No Chill” Video

When not creating noisy dubstep tracks or dropping the bass alongside Diplo for Jack Ü, Skrillex will occasionally lend his EDM stylings as a producer of other genres. One of his most recent collabs was with rapper Vic Mensa. The Skrillex sound is perfect for a song titled “No Chill” and you pick up on the aggression that one can recognize from some of Skrillex’s crunchier tracks. It’s not all-out womp-y this time around, but given the nature of the track, it works well.

If you’re a fan of A$AP Rocky’s video for “L$D” or Porter Robinson’s “Lionhearted” (or a fan of shiny Daft Punk robots), you’ll enjoy the adventure into Tokyo’s underground that is the “No Chill” video. You’ll explore the city alongside Vic Mensa and Skrillex with their crew in tow (even catch the “#fkagenre” DJ Mija from time to time). After a chilling intro in Japanese about Tokyo’s rebellious youth, you’re taken on a colorful journey in and out of buildings and on the streets of Tokyo.

This isn’t the first time Skrillex has worked with a rap artist. Popular track “Wild For The Night” by the previously mentioned A$AP Rocky features Skrillex’s “Goin’ Down” mix of French group Birdy Nam Nam’s “Goin’ In.” Even Sonny Moore wasn’t always into EDM – he made himself known as the lead singer of emo group From First To Last. It’s clear that Skrillex is always down to try new things and collaborate with a variety of artists – who knows what kind of coolness that will come out as 2016 goes along?
