Ellie Goulding Previews “Because,” Which is Apparently a Collaboration With Skrillex

For her special “Goodnight Valentine” mix for Annie Mac, Ellie Goulding pulled out all of the stops. Not only was she dropping remixes from Cyril Hahn and The Ninetys/Hucci, she dropped a little bit of hip-hop and some R&B, among other beautiful sounds. She ended her set with this chilling slice of downtempo, a collaboration with her ex-boyfriend entitled “Because.” While we don’t have too many specifics on the track, Skrillex did say it was made in a hotel room two years ago. It’s a gem, and shows that Skrillex is so much more than a turbo-charged dubstep and electro that’s associated with his sound; this is much more of a turned down affair, with enough IDM tendencies to keep you calm.
