Premiere: Californian duo SKULS shake up Yung Gud's U Want Me

Premiere: Californian duo SKULS shake up Yung Gud's U Want Me

Ending their year with one of their most refined tracks yet, SKULS have their sights set on a big 2017.

Hailing from the Bay Area of sunny California, SKULS are an emerging duo who are ticking all the right boxes. From their crafty remixes (which they label as RIPs) to their effortless production credits and their Terrorhythm-released Terminal EP (succeeding from their two-track Transient release which dropped a month earlier), SKULS’ Soundcloud is littered with cunning and devious productions, each boasting their own style and tone. Likewise is their latest remix and their last release for the year, a remix of U Want Me, a 2015 single from Yung Lean associate and S-Type collaborator Yung Gud. 

The duo’s remix of U Want Me does what SKULS do best, taking the original’s haunting vibe and amplifying it to infinity. By doing so, SKULS manage to turn U Want Me into an emotionally-charged thumper, craftily cutting and screwing brief vocal lines and pairing them with waves of crisp bass and airy, transparent synth work. Marking their last release of a particularly heavy year, the sophistication and cleanliness of SKULS’ U Want Me flip has us all extremely excited to see where the duo go from here – especially with international tastemakers including Plastician being one of their fondest flag-bearers.
