Given there’s been no shortage of cringe-worthy dubstep cross-genre collaborations (ahem, Korn and Skrillex) over the past year or two, we’re probably due a decent wubb crossover. So ahead of the April 10 release of his album Vava Voom, Bassnectar has stepped in to drop a joint with hip-hop artist Lupe Fiasco.

Album title track Vava Voom was released through Rolling Stone for streaming over the weekend – but you can listen to the YouTube rip below. According to Bassnectar, work on the tune began last year and was recorded in the space of a few days in the studio with Lupe. ”[Lupe] was doing this crazy double-meaning story over the track, talking about hypnosis while waving his arms in the air as if casting a spell,” the producer told Rolling Stone. “’Vava Voom’ is where life shifts into time-warp speed, but you find yourself in an almost slow-motion trance.” So, thoughts?

This is going to be a fiasco

With the dominance of dubstep, I can only say these kind of collabs will be the norm soon

Lupe already ripped over Bassnectars remix of Lighwork by Ellie Goulding.

Was only a matter of time.

I really liked Lupe over Bassnectars Lightwork remix from his last mixtape. This is just horrible though.
