Denzel Curry links with Canadian producer Ekali for “Babylon.” This is Ekali's first original release since signing to OWSLA/Atlantic/Big Beat earlier this month. Ekali was announced as OWSLA’s newest member just before playing Webster Hall’s final club night alongside Skrillex and Boys Noize on Aug. 5.

“Babylon” merges hip-hop and electronic with Denzel Curry showing off why he's one of the most versatile rappers in hip-hop right now. The former XXL Freshman has a knack for rapping over non-traditional rap production. He recently made a stellar collab with Ritual for “Real Feels" earlier this year. For Ekali, choosing Curry for "Babylon" made perfect sense.

"My objective with 'Babylon' was to create a world where rap and electronic coexisted without tipping the scales too far in either direction," Ekali says to XXL about the collaboration. "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 percent 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."
