Okay, so maybe it didn’t save ALL of summer 2020, but Slushii Remix of Nero x Skrillex’s “Promises” is the summer banger we didn’t know we needed. There are few songs so easily recognizable by the very first note; “Runaway” by Kanye West, “Welcome to The Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance, and then “Promises” Skrillex x Nero Remix. The original Skrillex Remix released nearly ten years ago in 2011, talk about a Throwback Thursday. Slushii‘s Remix is currently premiering on the Proximity YouTube page. Hit play and find comfort in that familiar first chord.
This remix is nostalgia in its purest essence. The drop is a bit surprising for Dubstep artist Slushii. While it does have elements of his signature sound, Slushii himself has dubbed this song as being dubstep electro house. What exactly that means, I am not entirely sure. What I do know for certain is that the bass is FAT and you’re going to want to add this to your summer jams playlist.
