LA-based DJ-turned-producer Sklyer Madison made her Monstercat debut today with her fiery new single, “Phoenix (feat. GLNNA).” Drawing inspiration from trap, future bass, and hip hop, Skyler has carved a niche for herself in the electronic space with her unique “future-trap” style. Nestled atop the rich bassline and warm chord stacks, GLNNA’s beautiful vocals tell a story of rebirth and perseverance, capturing Skyler’s emotions during a toxic period in her life. Akin to the fabled bird that rises from its own ashes, “Phoenix” carries a powerful message that anyone can find the strength to start over and transform the next chapter of their story.

Skyler Madison shares, “This record is by far the most personal body of work I’ve ever created. “Phoenix” is a metaphor for a dark time in my life but also a very transformative peak within myself. I hope it sheds light and gives those the inner strength they need to turn their pain into power and rise above their old self or a situation that no longer serves them the same way I did.”
Since transitioning from an open-format DJ to a full-time producer, Skyler Madison has garnered immense support from industry greats such as Flux Pavillion, SLANDER, Flosstradamus, and Krewella to name a few. Fans can look forward to seeing Skyler’s first performance of 2021 on October 7 at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco as direct support for Blunts & Blondes.
Skyler Madison Bio
Los Angeles-based DJ and Producer—Skyler Madison is truly paving her own lane to success as a Bass music magician this year. After deeply immersing herself in national and international club culture as a headlining open-format DJ for nearly a decade, she’s flipped the switch to emerge with her own fine-tuned production arsenal that she’s silently crafted underground over the past couple of years.
Impassioned by her eclectic love of Trap, Melodic Bass, and Hip Hop music, she’s making waves with an experimental trifecta of all three. Skyler’s diverse sound transcends the barrier between genres, illustrating a colorful sonic realm between beauty and the madness within. Expect an orchestrated array of crunchy harmonics, booming 808’s, and bright dream-like chord progressions, further representing her duality between airy, euphoric bass music and bolder, in-your-face trap-infused sounds.
Since her rebirth as a full-time producer, Skyler has also garnered immense support from the likes of bass music legends Flux Pavilion, Krewella, and Nitti Gritti to name a few. Be on the lookout for her upcoming label releases…there’s a whole lot in store for this promising artist in 2021.
