Skrillex and Diplo have just released their debut album as Jack Ü. Their new production team-up got their start last year, and made waves with their Kiesza-featuring lead single "Take Ü There," which recently got an awesome remix from Missy Elliott.

Jack Ü – “Take Ü There (Missy Elliott Remix)” (Feat. Kiesza)

Diplo and Skrillex's team-up Jack Ü already had a decent hit with their Kiesza-featuring "Take Ü There," but, damn, Missy Elliott just made it a million times better. Riding high from a spotlight-stealing Super Bowl appearance, Missy Elliott does the same thing here, laying down a few verses and pushing the song's already present… More »

Giorgio Moroder And Skrillex Teaming Up For Tron Video Game Soundtrack

It seems reasonable to assume that Giorgio Moroder has always been effortlessly cool. But now that he's launched a sort of career renaissance at the age of 74, he has the kind of cachet that only comes with being old, wise and still completely badass. In a recent roundtable interview with a handful of… More »

iLoveMakonnen Lines Up Drake, Rihanna, Diplo, Skrillex For Debut LP

iLoveMakonnen is one of the most compelling artists coming out of Atlanta's newest wave of culture-defying hip-hop, and ever since Drake hopped on a remix of his weekday ode "Tuesday" and signed him to OVO, Makonnen's star continues to rise. Proof? "Tuesday" was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. And while… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

There were a couple of big high-profile videos this week from artists I like, and they had big ideas, but they didn't move me much. The video for Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney's "FourFiveSeconds" went for a certain classicist magazine-shoot simplicity, and while Rihanna turned in a hell of a charismatic performance, the… More »

Skrillex – “Doompy Poomp” Video

Skrillex has teamed up with French directors Fleur & Manu (they've previously collaborated extensively with M83, the National, Movement, etc.) to release a haywire, batshit video for "Doompy Poomp." The track is off Skrillex's latest album, Recess, and the visuals play off the classic Groundhog Day plot line of nightmarish repetition. More »

Aphex Twin Answers Questions From Caribou, Nicolas Jaar, Skrillex; Says He’s Developing Mutant Music Software

Before returning with his triumphant new album SYRO, Aphex Twin shared a list of all the gear he'd used to make the music. It is long and obscure, and it could honestly be a list of alien technology for all I know. If Richard D. James ever gets around to putting together another… More »

Beyoncé – “7/11 (Skrillex & Diplo’s Jack Ü Remix)”

Skrillex and Diplo have shared a remix of Beyoncé's "7/11" that they made under their Jack Ü moniker. The original song arrived on the scene ready for the club, but the production duo have turned the Beyoncé bonus track into something that could conceivably fill their massive festival sets. You can listen to it… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Earlier today, I published my list of the 40 best music videos of 2014. It's always a bit dangerous to publish a year-end list before the year is actually over, especially in this new surprise-release universe where we now live. But it sure looks like the music-video universe has slowed down for the holiday… More »

The 40 Best Music Videos Of 2014

Next year, YouTube will celebrate its 10th anniversary. For nearly a decade, then, music videos have belonged almost entirely to the internet. Once upon a time, video directors made their work for TV, expecting you to run across their images when you were flipping through channels. By the time YouTube hit its second year, that… More »

Watch Lorde, Disclosure, Alt-J, Skrillex, & More In A Very Austalian Year-End Sketch For Triple J

The Australian radio station Triple J is about to launch its year-end Hottest 100 countdown. And to build up anticipation (or whatever), it put together a comedy sketch that stars as many musicians as possible. It's pretty obvious that none of these people in were in the same room at the same time, but it'… More »

Skrillex – “Dirty Vibe” Video (Feat. Diplo, G-Dragon & CL)

Before Diplo and Skrillex got together to form their new duo Jack Ü, they collaborated on "Dirty Vibe," a track from Skrillex's 2014 album Recess. The song also features the K-Pop stars G-Dragon (of BigBang) and CL (of 2NE1), two people who have way more batshit charisma than just about anyone in Western pop music. More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Last year's Thanksgiving break means we've actually got two weeks' worth of videos accounted for below, and they were a packed two weeks. It hurts my heart not to include strong pieces of work like EMA's grand cyberpunk vision, Atmosphere's masterful The Jerk reference, OFF!'s delirious slapstick freakout, or Ty DollaMore »

Jack Ü – “Take Ü There” (Feat. Kiesza) Video

Diplo and Skrillex recently hooked up to form a duo called Jack Ü, roping in the rising pop-house star Kiesza to sing on their big, bright, bouncy debut single "Take Ü There." Their new "Take Ü There" video is really more like two videos in one: The straightforward people-rocking-crowds-on-tour video and the half-animated frantic-mugging… More »

Skrillex – “Fuck That” Video (Dir. Nabil)

Hiro Murai has been seriously challenging Nabil's stranglehold on the whole Best Video Director In The World thing this year, but here's another strong entrant from Nabil. Skrillex recruited the director to turn his minimal uptempo Recess track "Fuck That" -- OK, relatively minimal; the wub-wubs are barely perceptible! -- into a… More »

Chicago Skrillex Show Leaves 16 Fans Hospitalized

Dance music shows are big, big business these days, and they tend to involve a whole lot of kids on a whole lot of drugs. So it's not too surprising that we've seen reports of fans beings sent to the hospital at some of the bigger shows. Dozens were hospitalized at an Avicii show… More »

Hear Diplo Debut Jack U’s Kiesza Collaboration “Take U There” At Mad Decent Block Party

Jack U is the EDM wonder-twins super-team of Diplo and Skrillex. Though they've been recording together lately, their music only seems to exist in the form of tracks that Diplo plays during festival DJ sets. One of those tracks is "Take U There," a collaboration with Kiesza, the singer behind the monster house-pop anthem… More »
