Hot on the heels of his recent club smash, “The Attention Deficit Track,” Skream returns to CircoLoco Records with longtime collaborator Jansons for a breakbeat-fueled instant classic, “World Is Empty.”
Already selected as BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record this week, the track is centered around an irresistible sample from The Supremes above a driving electro bassline and nostalgic synth pads as it builds to an emotional vocal breakdown.
Building on his storied career as an electronic and dubstep pioneer, “World is Empty” follows The Attention Deficit EP, also released on CircoLoco Records, alongside recent remixes and releases with names ranging from Solomun to Boys Noize.
The new collaboration between Skream and Jansons marks the seventh release from CircoLoco Records, the pioneering partnership between CircoLoco and Rockstar Games dedicated to both brands’ longstanding mission to champion and elevate underground dance music and club culture.
“World Is Empty” follows the release of Chloé Caillet’s “NYWTF” feat. Mikhail Beltran, Map.ache’s single “IZA” and “On My Own Now” from DJ Tennis and Ashee featuring Lady Donli. Prior to that was Skream’s acclaimed The Attention Deficit EP and the Monday Dreamin’ compilation, which featured visionaries and icons from every era of CircoLoco’s greatest parties, including Carl Craig, Moodymann, Kerri Chandler, Sama’ Abdulhadi and tINI.
