Wynter Gordon Gets Vocal Tips From Skrillex

Leading up to her New Year’s Eve shows at Luna Park, pop diva Wynter Gordon tells us that Skrillex has been giving her vocal advice.

Wynter Gordon, the singer behind club hits like the triple-platinum ‘Dirty Talk’ and ‘Til Death’, is visiting Australia once again.

This time she’s ringing in 2012 at the Harbour Party at Luna Park in Sydney on New Year’s eve, alongside The Potbelleez, Zoe Badwi, Ajax, Beni, Cassian and more.

We had a chat to her about famous friends Lupe Fiasco and Bruno Mars, but the most unlikely news was that dubstep disseminator Skrillex has been giving her vocal tips.

The background on Wynter’s twitter account when we spoke was a photo her and “Skrilly” and I asked how they knew each other.

“I’ve been in music for years and years and years,” she notes, “meeting a lot of people as artists, and we all have, kinda like, a close circle.”

“When you meet another artist that gets your pain and frustration, we have all these moments that people don’t get to see of sharing tips on how to prolong vocal activity. It’s cool,” she chuckles, “You learn stuff from each other and people I’ve worked with, you always learn a bit from them, and I’ve learned from Skrillex.”

Before spreading dubstep to the masses, Skrillex was the singer for screamo band From First To Last.

“We had discussions, because I had a lot of throat problems in 2011,” she reveals. “And going through acid reflux, and pre-nodes and things like that, and he would give me tips because he went through a similar thing. Connecting that way, being on tour with him, you kinda get close”.

Wynter also spoke about her fruit and vegetable regime, the “realest person on the planet” Lupe Fiasco, clothes and boys, the Grammys, making new music, avoiding New Year’s Eve kisses, resolving to take her image into her own hands, and why she’s the Ferris Bueller of Pop.
