Grammy-winning electronic music specialist Skrillex brings his ear and oversight to Hollywood for the "Spring Breakers" movie soundtrack, enlisting some top-notch talent to deliver everything from dubstep to beat-heavy bass rap.
Besides several of his own tracks, the Skrillex-composed album features Atlanta-based rappers Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame, the latter providing an interesting though nearly understated delivery on an explicit track about staying focused in the music industry to provide big dollars for his family.
Skrillex uses Ellie Goulding's breathy dance track, "Lights," as the finale on this decent assemblage. It's not the disc's song with the most pulse, but it brings things to a calming close.
All in all, it's a decent soundtrack and a good sampler of what the spring break set is doing.
