Good news for Skrillex fans—the perpetual state of “new music coming soon” is now confirmed to be coming to an end. New work from the OWSLA boss is being prepared for imminent release, and it sounds like he has more than a few bullets in the chamber. According to Skrillex, the amount of new material he’s currently sitting on, “feels like a couple bodies of work,” and that’s aside from the new Dog Blood EP that’s due to be released on Friday, May 24.

While Skrillex hasn’t exactly kept quiet in recent years, he’s generally stepped away from building out his own canon of original works, and it has been more than five years since his debut LP secured his place within dance music’s highest echelon. It appears that’s all about to change, with a Dog Blood EP already underway, additional separate concepts nearing completion, and enough left over for some “other random releases in the coming weeks.” See the tweet below, and turn Recess up to 11 today; we’re celebrating. New music from Skrillex is due any minute now.

Skrillex and Boys Noize have finally set a date for their long-awaited, resurgent EP under their joint moniker, Dog Blood. The former took to Twitter to announce the four-track project will make its emphatically anticipated landing May 31, as Skrillex confirms each song is finally finished and primed for release.

Dog Blood’s official road to resurrection has been a gradual one, beginning this past March, with performances at BUKU Festival, the Miami Music Week staple, Brownies & Lemonade, as well as Ultra itself promptly after. The torrential twosome paired the feverishly awaited Ultra set with a brand new track, “Turn Off The Lights” that very same day. Skrillex confirmed more new music was on the way shortly thereafter.

Per Skrillex’s tweet, Dog Blood secured some special guest spots to accompany them on the new venture. The project will mark the duo’s third multi-track release, following both the Middle Finger EP of 2012, and the subsequent Middle Finger Pt. 2 of the following year, each jointly released through OWSLA and Boysnoize Records.

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

Autograf preview their forthcoming EP with the release of their new single, “Casual Love,” with The Griswolds, and FANGS debuts on Big Beat Records with a fiery new single, “Money.” Grabbitz ups the intensity of Dog Blood‘s “Turn Off the Lights” in his new flip, and Matroda teams up with Dances With White Girls for “Bang.” Grant returns to Monstercat with “Color,” and Luis da Silva releases a formidable remix of 13’s “Uppercut.” Jarvis‘ new EP, The Bro Code, is out now via Firepower Records, as is um..‘s on Deadbeats, featuring tracks like “what?” Rootkit teams up with Bryan Finlay for “Feel Your Love,” and Dombresky takes a “Simple Hit” in his new single. Chime reveals his take on Dodge & Fuski, PhaseOne, and The Arcturians‘ “Mistakes,” and Dutch producer NWYR unleashes a dreamy new single, “Artificial Intelligence.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 89

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Listen in playlist format here.


In celebrating the return of Skrillex and Boys Noize‘s Dog Blood project in late March, Grabbitz has taken on the task of flipping “Turn Off The Lights.” Grabbitz cranks up the intensity on this take of the pair’s first offering since 2014, speeding up the intro and leading straight into a glitchy, distorted drop. With its simultaneously fun and heavy atmosphere, this feisty but brief flip is sure to make its rounds at festivals this summer.

One of the reigning kings of anthemic drum ‘n’ bass has returned with his first offering of the year, “Devotion.” Dimension has linked with the talented Cameron Hayes for this latest single, building a sinister drum ‘n’ bass instrumental around her powerful vocals. These two are a force to be reckoned with, and what they’ve created in “Devotion” is pure energy from start to finish.

While we’re on the topic of drum ‘n’ bass power ballads, I’d be remiss if I didn’t tip my hat to Koven‘s latest. Katie Boyle and Max Rowat have composed a truly mighty piece in their latest single for Liquicity. Boyle gives her heart and soul to this song, and it’s readily apparent in every line she belts. The combination of her vocals and authoritative instrumentals is goosebump-inducing, and I love it.

The world saw just one bit of new material from Timecop1983 last year in the form of “Back To You” (which was brilliant, by the way), and the ’80s-inspired producer has now returned with a new single, “My Delorean.” The Dutch producer has teamed up with fellow ’80s enthusiast Primo for the beautifully emotive tune, which tugs at listeners’ heartstrings with nostalgic synths and dreamy vocals.

SIGMA follow up their end-of-March release, “Here We Go Again,” with a merry remix from Just Kiddin. Where the former UK duo chose a breezy pop-oriented feel for their original, the latter UK duo have opted for a more dance floor-ready rendition. A bouncing house beat makes this tune even more infectious, and a fun, filtered twist on Louisa‘s vocals makes this remix one worth hitting “repeat” on many times.

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

It’s been more than five years since the music world has seen new music from Skrillex and Boys Noize‘s supergroup, Dog Blood, but that wait is finally over with “Turn Off The Lights.” Dillon Francis joins forces with lovelytheband for a, well, lovely collaboration called “Change Your Mind.” Armin van Buuren, Lucas & Steve, and Josh Cumbee deliver a feel-good number by the name of “Don’t Give Up On Me,” and Nicky Romero, DallasK, and XYLØ create a contemplative, low-key collaboration, “Sometimes.” Whethan and Bearson have crafted an effortlessly groovy “Win You Over” with SOAK, and Seven Lions and Kill The Noise take things up a notch with the formidable “The Blood.” Bassnectar reveals his Reflective Part Four EP is on its way with “Illusion,” and Kove keeps his brand of drum & bass subtle and smooth with “Echoes.” Jai Wolf and Dresage come together in “Better Apart,” and NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg make a powerful pair in “REDLIGHT.” Sam Feldt brings summer a few months early with “One Day” with ROZES and Yves V, and Zomboy brings “The Beast” with his new single. The Chainsmokers prep for their new album with “Kills You Slowly,” and Mielo releases his Anywhere But Here EP, featuring a closing song of the same title.

As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.

Supergroups are a tough concept to nail. More often than not, the sum is far less than the whole of its parts, and the dueling influences of the outfit’s two (or more) megastars falls short of its members’ solo endeavors.

Such is not the case for Dog Blood, nor has it ever been. Skrillex and Boys Noize’s abilities to measure up to their solo catalogues in tandem is rooted partly in their skilled production approach, and more so in their stylistic compatibility. Most of all, however, it’s the result of their decision not to over-exert the project. Dog Blood releases are few and far between, but when they arrive, they inevitably leave an inimitable impact.

Today, March 29,  the iconic pair has released their first new single in more than five years. “Turn Off The Lights” picks up just where Skrillex and Boys Noize left off in 2013; detuned synth-work, Ragga-esque vocals, and garage-inspired beats pervade Dog Blood’s long-awaited return to the studio.

While the new single is a bit less heavy than most of their earlier work, it undeniably leaves us yearning for more.

The wait is finally over, new Dog Blood is on the way.

At long last, Skrillex and Boys Noize are primed to deliver scalding, acidic mayhem on March 29 under their joint Dog Blood moniker—the duo’s first release together since 2013’s menacing Middle Finger Pt. 2 EP. The new track, still nameless, comes just ahead of the pair’s first show outside of a festival setting, when they take over Brownies & Lemonade’s highly anticipated MMW warehouse affair the night of Friday, March 29. Though, the new music landing this Friday is only the tip of the iceberg—apparently the pair have multiple tracks in the chamber, with more rounds expected to follow soon.

Dog Blood has long promised new music, though Skrillex and Boys Noize famously only produce new material when they can be together. With two insanely demanding itineraries, the Dog Blood studio sessions understandably come few and far between. Though, between Skrillex and Boys Noize’s headlining BUKU performance and their upcoming performance at Ultra Music Festival, the two have managed to carve out plenty of quality production time, and now the fruits of their handiwork will finally be heard by the masses.
