Skrillex has been making waves in the industry since his third EP Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites was released in 2010. While some may have taken a while to warm up to his genre-defining first full-length release, Recess, Skrillex has proven that he is still at the top of his game with his long awaited second album, Quest For Fire, which comes nine years after that debut. While some may view this as a comeback, Skrillex's intentions are not to prove himself to anyone but instead to showcase his evolution as an artist, demonstrating that he remains one of the biggest names in the electronic music scene.

Quest For Fire is an impressive display of Skrillex's musical prowess, featuring collaborations with twenty-five eclectic guests across fifteen tracks: Four Tet, Missy Elliott, Dylan Brady (100 gecs), Nai Barghouti, Fred again.., and Flowdan. The result is a mixed bag of goods and, although it seemingly does not follow an overarching throughline, the lack of cohesion is precisely what makes it so unique. 

The opener "Leave Me Like This" is a catchy song that sets the tone for what is to come. As the album progresses, Skrillex continues to surprise listeners with unexpected genre blends, noise-elements and wild drops. Standout tracks include "RATATA" with Missy Elliot and the dark and jarring "Tears" with producer Joker. Skrillex's ability to fuse unrelated musical ideas results in an incoherent yet exhilarating listening experience that keeps listeners on their toes. While some tracks may feel like filler when compared to the big hits, it's his unconventional approach to music production that creates an impressive showcase of his musical range and skill.


The penultimate track "Hazel Theme," which is the only solo track, attempts to find a moment of solace before flowing into "Still Here (with the ones that I came with)." The album's final moments give listeners a sense of closure, a feeling that they've been on a wild musical roller coaster with Skrillex and are now coming back to reality. Quest For Fire proves that Skrillex remains a force to be reckoned with, a testament to his position as one of the biggest names in the industry. And it's a reminder that he has always been here and is going nowhere; this is a must-listen for Skrillex fans and anyone who appreciates innovative and unconventional electronic music. © Jessica Porter-Langson/Qobuz
