This is sounding like it might be one of the biggest tracks of the year. It's no secret that Skrillex loves working with a diverse cast of rappers, in recent years adding names like CL, A$AP Rocky, G-Dragon, Foreign Beggars, and Chance The Rapper to his long list of collaborations, and he was also recently in the studio with Roc Nation's own Vic Mensa.
Now he's been spotted in the studio and partying alongside UK rapper Tempa T, who you might remember from the classic Chase & Status anthem "Hypest Hype" and collaborations with fellow grime artists like JME, Skepta, and D Double E.
The first video shows Skrillex at his computer smoking a cigarette while a room full of people jam out to a song called "Phone," which will be on Tempa's upcoming album It's Bait, It's Bait. There's no word if Skrillex was involved with this one, or was just playing this track while keeping the party entertained.
The second one though is actually in the studio, and shows Skrillex rocking out as Tempa T is spitting hard over a electronically influenced instrumental. You don't have to be a massive Skrillex fan to know that this is definitely his beat, sounding vaguely like influences used in the A$AP Rocky version of "Wild For The Night." No report on where this will end up, but based on the hashtags and vocals, it looks like this song might be called "Dick Head Ting" and should also appear on his album.

Nothing has come of this track years later, but maybe we will see something comes out in the future. Skrillex is working on so many different projects, it can take time.
