SLIPKNOT DJ Sid Wilson has confirmed to NME that he is collaborating with Professor Green on a new track. We first mentioned this when we spotted Professor Green talking about it in a recent article – see here. Asked how he met Green and what they had planned, Sid replied:
“We’ve not been together in the studio at the same time or anything, but I’ve got a lot of ideas in the works for him. I ran into him into Australia over at the electronic festival. Me and Clown [Slipknot percussionist Shawn Crahan] went straight there after our tour and I ran into him. I told him I was a total fan and I played his stuff all the time in my truck. I just said let’s get down and work together. My family’s from England and I grew up on grime, jungle and drum’n’bass so it’ll be cool to work with someone who’s from that world.”
Then asked what he thought the music he and Green were planning to record would sound like, Wilson replied: “It’s going to have a DJ sound, but it’ll be dirtier and grimier, with more of a punk rock edge to it. There’ll be some guitars maybe, but you’ll definitely have to have your ugly face on when you hear it.”
