RL Grime and Australian producer What So Not began writing their newly released collaboration "Waiting" in 2013, on the same day they began writing their 2014 festival smash "Tell Me." The sketch went by the wayside until Skrillex got his hands on it this summer.
"I think it's kind of cool that both tracks were born from that same session," RL Grime told NPR. "It's had a few different lives over the years and the timing feels right."
"Waiting" has the familiar glossy uplift of many an electronic track, followed by the downwards cascade of something much bigger and dirtier. Then the process repeats itself.
