Ty Dolla $ign has "a lot of respect" for Skrillex and is thrilled they have had a chance to work together
Ty Dolla $ign has "a lot of respect" for Skrillex.
The 32-year-old singer couldn't be more pleased about teaming up with the music producer as he has "always wanted" to work with him.
He shared: "I always wanted to work with Skrillex, and if you pay attention to my work you'll know that on the first 'Beach House' record I sampled Skrillex's 'Z' and mixed it with some Mint Condition on the track 'Cabana'. So that was sampling Skrillex, but 'So Am I' is the real Skrillex on production.
"It was dope working with Skrillex. I've got a lot of respect for him because I've worked with a lot of producers who will come in, but later you'll find out that they had someone else playing the keys, or that someone else did the whole track and they just put their name on there. But Skrillex will come in there, he'll do the beat in front of you, make the edits in front of you, mix the record, master the record - the full s**t. So much love and respect to Skrillex."
Ty Dolla $ign - whose real name is Tyrone William Griffin Jr. - feels he has made a lot of "sex music" in the past.
Speaking to NME magazine, he added: "I think it comes from my music, because I have a lot of 'sex music' - music that people have sex to. S**t man, I'm your guy: I'll tell you exactly what you need to know about sex."
