Xavier Wulf has solidified his spot as one of the underground’s finest artists throughout the past few years by way of unforgiving personality and a certain aggressive energy that simply cannot be imitated. Today, in an unexpected yet incredible new collaboration to start the new year off with, Wulf is here on our pages with a remix of his hard-hitting track “Check It Out” featuring none other than Skepta. The original Skepta cosign came a few years back via Twitter, and although nothing ever seemed to come of it, the two finally decided to join forces in a powerful song that may just be one of my favorite releases of the year so far.
Skepta’s raw deliveries and ominous sound fit perfectly over the eerie production in a seamless manner, and with the way that the distinct voices of each artist clash against each other, I truly believe that they could continue to develop the natural chemistry so clearly apparent in this remix. Additionally, we were also blessed with a visual companion directed by Sleem Luciii that utilizes hypnotic coloring and raw effects to carefully illustrate such a confrontational sound to its full effect. With that being said, be sure to check out this meeting of the underground star with one of the UK’s biggest names via “Check It Out (Remix)” below.
