Most of y’all might not know much about dubstep, but you might know Skream from his excellent remix of La Roux’s “In For The Kill,” which tore up dance floors last year and was hands down better than the original. Based off the success of that remix (and other remixes under his belt), he’s dropping his second full length album–this time with a little bit more buzz.

I’ve always said that La Roux singer Elly Jackson’s voice was hobbled by producer Ben Langmaid’s staic (and cheesy) 80s production, and that’s made true every new collaboration or remix I hear. Skream eschews his dubstep past while highlighting Ms. Jackson’s voice. And it works.

Skream’s Outside the Box drops next week in the UK.
