A few months back, Skrillex teased a collaboration with Chance the Rapper, which his artist Mija eventually premiered during a DJ set in December. As it turned out, the song was a remix of Hundred Waters' "Show Me Love." Now, the song has finally surfaced online in CDQ after popping up on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show earlier today. Even better, they have come through with an official video for the remix that sees Skrillex making his directorial debut. The video is premiering on the band’s new site showme.love through Loveback, a new media platform that allows people to directly support creators, who can then give back rewards. A fan can "loveback" any amount and will receive a download of the remix and be entered to win one of several spots to attend and participate in FORM Arcosanti, a music festival founded by Hundred Waters with 1200 participants including Skrillex and Moses Sumney.
Although the original song clocked in at just over a minute, Skrillex has turned it into a full-length, four-minute jam featuring vocals from Moses Sumney and arrangements courtesy of Robin Hannibal. "It’s all about love and positivity, what this world really needs right now. I want to thank all of the artists in the world going out of their way to make people's lives better and happier through creating and sharing their art," Skrillex says of the remix. Skrillex's production aside, Chance is the song's real star, spitting a lengthy verse about growing up and loving his home city of Chicago. "City I always talk about/What I rap about/Show me love because I love it/Only thing I can covet in public," he raps. The chorus, adapted from the song's original, soars wispily over the top, making for a solid track overall. Although we've been waiting a couple of months for it to surface, the hype was definitely worth it. Watch the "Show Me Love (Remix)" video above.
