Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson says he’ll be working on a track with British rapper Professor Green.
Wilson revealed to NME that he met Professor Green in Australia while he was on the Soundwave Festival and Green was on the Future Music Festival.
He said he’d pitched to Professor Green in the past, but cemented it when they met.
“Me and Clown [Slipknot percussionist Shawn Crahan] went straight there after our tour and I ran into him,” Wilson revealed. “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.”
As for what the music might sound like, Wilson suggests, “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.”
