Hear a New Track from Skream
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Though he's most recently been heard flirting with the more fun-loving ends of disco and house, Skream's new effort sees the long-standing producer/DJ delivering a more subdued sound. Titled "Let It Go," the new production comes in at almost nine minutes long and focuses on a steady, understated shuffle as it begins unraveling a series of delicate melodic sequences. A slow-moving affair, "Let It Go" builds mass as it chugs forward, its low-rumbling bass drones giving way to dense pads, spiraling arpeggios, and—eventually—a rich string section.
Skream's latest can be streamed in full below. At this point, the UK artist has not indicated whether "Let It Go" will see a proper release somewhere down the line.
