OWSLA Unveils Ekali’s Highly Anticipated Original, “Babylon” Featuring Denzel Curry

Being the most recent signee of the forward-thinking imprint OWSLA and playing Webster Hall’s final club night alongside Skrillex and Boys Noize earleir this month, there has been a lot of buzz surrounding Ekali recently. Let’s make one thing clear, the hype is real.

His latest original, “Babylon,” is a groundbreaking fusion of the world of electronic dance music and hip-hop featuring verses from Denzel Curry.

“My objective with Babylon was to create a world where Rap and Electronic coexisted without tipping the scales too far in either direction. I was hyped on the idea of producing an entire song AROUND Denzel’s story instead of having him tell his story around my beat, so I ended up producing 99% of the song after Zel had already recorded his parts. It’s an approach to rap music that I’d never seen done before, so I wanted to know what that sounded like. Working in the room with Denzel was fast… he’s a real rapper. Most of the time we spent kicking it just playing shit back and forth. He wrote and recorded his parts for Babylon in minutes.” – Ekali
