Many fans were shocked to see Skrillex make an animated cameo in the first Wreck It Ralph. Though his time in the film was short, it still was a massive surprise. Skrillex also created the track ‘Bug Hunt’ for the film which never ended up seeing the light of day, even though the Noisia Remix
Philly native 5 & A Dime, as the reigning DDR-Extreme (8th Mix) World Champion, has created a revolutionary technology that allows him to create a live mashup while doing what he does best: dancing on launchpads. The mashup includes tracks by The Chainsmokers, Cashmere Cat, Skrillex, La Roux and more. 5 & A Dime’s explanation of the technology is as follows:
“This project is a hybrid between a Launchpad and DDR pads connected via MIDI into Ableton triggering several drum racks worth of samples. It then sends a visual MIDI signal to the 3D projection 1:1 scale model behind me…The 3D projection technology is the same that artists like Excision and Eric Prydz use during their shows.”
We have some great news for you today Skrillex lovers. Skrillex is finally making a comeback to perform at festivals after a long break this last year. The dubstep DJ is set to perform his own individual set at the Form Arcosanti festival. Taking place in May, this year’s lineup features many popular acts such
Literally just yesterday I wrote in an article how talking about Skrillex being in the studio with another artist has become a daily ritual for me. I wrote that in jest. But here I am, the next day, in fact writing about Skrillex being in the studio with another artist. This time around though it
Complextro house isn’t dead — not as long as Wolfgang Gartner is around. The veteran producer’s name is synonymous with the complextro movement that sparked around a decade ago and helped boost EDM into the mainstream. While Wolfgang’s style has evolved considerably since the “Space Junk” days, young, fresh talent like k?d seem to be keeping him young on their new joint effort “Banshee.” Widely considered to be one of the sharpest prospects on the rise, k?d wraps his fluid production acumen around Wolfgang’s penchant for ultra-intricate, rousingly dramatic dance compositions.
“Banshee” packs in grainy, distorted piano chords and snappy percussive builds before breaking out into high-octane sonic mayhem. It’s aggressive yet calculated, vintage and futuristic all at once, and ultimately a flawlessly nostalgic return to the beloved Wolfgang Gartner electro of yesteryear, capped by a menacing contemporary flair with the addition of k?d’s forward-thinking production method.
Historically more of a lone wolf, Gartner has famously collaborated with deadmau5 and Skrillex on two of his canon’s brightest hallmarks, “Animal Rights” and “Devil’s Den” respectively. One listen through, and we can safely say “Banshee” is likely to join those ranks in time too.
Another day, another Skrillex collaboration in the works. This has gotten to be a bit ridiculous to be honest. Every week Skrillex is scene collaborating with a new artist. I guess that is the price you pay for being one of the most talented musical mind’s of a generation. In the Instagram below Skrillex can
Diplo recently added his two cents to the NBA’s All Star weekend, dropping off an hourlong basketball-themed mixtape, Give & Go. Following a recent stylistic shift with DRAM on “Look Back,” the Mad Decent head revisits his firmly planted hip-hop roots, coming through with a souped-up ode to America’s most popular genre.
The new mix rounds together a rhyming highlight reel that includes cuts from Lil Uzi Vert, Drake, Kodak Black, N.E.R.D., Rae Sremmurd, Vince Staples and more. Rifling through the rap crate in honor of the annual weekend NBA festivities, LeBlonde James aka the Moombahton Malone laces up a mix packed with the top trending selects of the moment along with a handful of crossover remixes to glue it all together.
Kendrick Lamar, Baauer, Travis Scott, and Skrillex all make appearances in the new Give & Go mixtape, and with Diplo’s hiatus from solo work nearing an end with his impending California EP, perhaps fans can expect a heavy hip-hop motif on the upcoming release. Until then, enjoy this new 30-track roundup from EDM’s Flairry Bird.
Despite Ronny J teasing his latest collaboration with Skrillex, Skrillex has been relatively quiet about new music lately. Just the other day, Skrillex took to Instagram to share a picture of his new puppy and it is officially cuteness overload. “Happy Sunday,” was all that Skrillex shared on Instagram, but everyone is quick to notice
As a follow-up to their remix of Rain Man and MAX’s “Do You Still Feel?” QUESTIONS ○ ANSWERS aka Q&A are back with their ‘reconditioning’ of Skrillex’s killer remix of Kendrick Lamar’s massive single “Humble.” Q&A describe the remix as a “slightly tweaked version compared to the one that was premiered on Slander and NGHTMRE’s
Behind every great artist stands a great manager. Pat Corcoran and Tim Smith are the driving forces behind two of today’s biggest stars, representing Chance The Rapper and Skrillex respectively. The pair, affectionately known as Pat the Manager and RoadHog, have already cemented themselves as music indsutry power players, and now the two managers are setting off to conquer new ground in the world of wine.
Connecting with Chicago-based sommelier Ryan Arnold, the national wine director for the Lettuce Entertain You restaurant group, Corcoran and Smith are preparing to launch No Fine Print — a fun and affordable wine brand that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
The vision behind the new project was simple: provide a festive libation that casual wine drinkers can enjoy without needing extensive wine knowledge or experience. Moreover, the new venture is a healthy excersize in branding, challenging the two managers to apply their creative approaches to a product, rather than a person.
“We’ve built our reputation in the music industry by focusing on our unique approach to managing artists that we’re passionate about,”
“[We] wanted to find a way to merge the creative branding we’ve used in the music realm with wine,”
No Fine Print is also debuting with a Fine Print counterpart, which will offer consumers a more expensive, higher-end alternative which will be available in a much more limited capacity. The No Fine Print label, retailing at $19.99 is a 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon from California. By contrast, Fine Print is a 24-month barrel aged 2014 Syrah-Pinot Noir blend from Northern California, which will be sold at a $34.99 price point. A portion of the proceeds from both brands will go to benefit a group of social and environmental charity organizations.
