Skyshaker is releasing mixtape Novox 10 via SVBKVLT on November 26, with preview track ‘Scintii -Deux (Skyshaker Dawn Edition)’ premiering today on AQNB. The record traces the artist’s coming-out experience across a diaspora of club communities, remixing SVBKVLT affiliates Osheyack, Yen Tech, Gabber Modus Operandi, and more along the way.
Novox 10 runs amongst the ranks of the Shanghai label, buoying itself in a scene far from Skyshaker’s native New York find to create newfound belonging. The artist reassembles ten tracks from international collaborators into a homage to Black femininity, collapsing themes of alienation and belonging into a singular form. On their remix of Scintii’s ‘Deux’, Skyshaker detonates the artist’s vocal track into an explosive ballad of synths that rupture at the pulsating techno beat. It’s an equally tender and fierce interpretation of the artist’s three-year-old release.**
