Four years ago, Hundred Waters, a quartet of musicians from Gainesville, Florida signed to Skrillex‘s LA-based dance imprint OWSLA. In changing the fabric of the label and the preconceptions of how electronic music is produced, Hundred Waters and OWSLA have proven to be a fitting partnership ever since.
One production in particular stands out as their most commercially successful piece to date, “Show Me Love.” Aside from roping in Coca-Cola’s attention during the 2015 Superbowl, the song also received a stunning rework from Skrillex and Chance The Rapper. Coming together on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the group performed the remix live together for the first time.
Hundred Waters’ Nicole Miglis covered Moses Sumney’s opening verse on the remix while Chance nailed his bars, harmonizing during the hook with finesse. Meanwhile, Skrillex provided the melodic guitar riffs for Miglis’ delicately vocoded topline. Imploring compassion and care for one another, Hundred Waters spread their message on one of their biggest stages yet, with a little added star power from friends. Watch the full performance here.
Watch Chance The Rapper spit a hot 16 (and then some) freestyling about breakfast cereal, as Skrillex lays a beat over Colbert’s opening monologue jokes.
