Just a few hours ago, a new Skrillex track seemed to have surfaced on the interwebs yet again. Sonny Moore is slowly starting to make his much awaited comeback and this track with Alvin Risk definitely is one hell of a fire cracker! They've both been playing this jam in their sets since the summer and looks set for release, according to the statement below
"Here’s a video we made with all our friends! “TRY IT OUT (NEON MIX)” sets a perfect mood for exercising, hunting T-Rexs, swimming in volcanos, playing with catbug, playing video games, or just hanging out with your parents on a cool summer’s night. If you’re feeling like you need a lil umph in your rumph, bang this track and get pumped up for whatever ever it is you’re trying out (LOLz)
-Skril and Alvin
PS: This track w 2 other B mixes will be on Itunes if ya wanna buy em "

Skrillex was recently interviewed by NME Magazine where he revealed that he will be debuting new music when he returns to his first festival shows of the year at Reading and Leeds Festival. This is the first time since The Leaving EP that Skrillex will be releasing any solo material. Considering his multi-genre inspired essential mix on Radio One that was voted to be the most played content in BBC Radio one's history, the experimental nature of The Leaving and the recent releases on OWSLA -- Check out Phonat's EP, -- I think that Skrillex is going to showcase something very unique that's going to steer dance music in a better and different direction. We'll find out in the next couple of weeks.
Meanwhile his record label, OWSLA premiered their latest radio show 'OWSLA After Dark' on Mistajam's BBC Radio 1Extra program, yesterday. Jack Beats kicked off the show with a wicked hour long mix. Tracklist below. Also, check out the OWSLA crew's new blog, THE NEST HQ,

The dynamic duo of Skrillex and Boys Noize are back at it again, releasing new music under their Dog Blood alias. It is so great when two artists can combine their equal talents in such different genres to create something so badass. This EP is just littered with influences from the Acid house days of yore, as well as the underground warehouse music of the 90's. Then, the next thing you know, you are hit with some Skrilly style dub that makes your insides melt, and that is somehow pitted up against a Boys Noize style glitchy backbeat. Oh yeah, let's not forget the break beat and metal influences too they somehow managed to squeeze in.
These guys have been killing it lately. From epic live shows (check out their monumental 2013 Coachella set HERE) to new releases, there is really no stopping either of these artists right now. Nest, Skrillex's new subscription based music service via OWSLA, has even been making some strides lately.
Stream the new Dog Blood EP below, and check back for more news on the actual release. They were nice enough to assume a leak was coming, and just tossed it up for us to hear.
New EP release by Sonny Moore AKA Skrillex. Get ready for your friends to turn down the track yell "dude check out this drop" then blast the volume. These tracks definitely live up to the dubstep superstar's standards.
A couple of interesting stories have emerged about the prince of dubstep of late. A new track that samples the build up from his previous collaboration with Foreign Beggars known as, "Still Gettin it" has gone viral in the EDM world. "Scary Bolly Dub" definitely delivers the grind for all Skrill fans!
Also here's another piece of information we're trying to figure out if it's official or not. It seems like Sonny Moore is expanding his womb enterprise to the fryer. LA Weekly has reported Grillex a new dubstep themed food truck is making its way through LA under the ownership of our very own local dubstep master! LA Weekly has more here.

Relieve the magic of HARD Summer 2012 with the official recap video released by HARD Events yesterday. Marking the pinnacle of the Los Angeles summer music festival this year, HARD Summer welcomed over 50,000 fans this month (August 3-4, 2012) at the Los Angeles State Historic Park for the event's fifth annual installment. Expanding to a two-day event for the first time, HARD Summer - the largest ticketed music festival in the city of Los Angeles - proved to be one of the year's most stellar celebrations featuring high-octane performance from Skrillex, Bloc Party, Miike Snow (Live), Boys Noize, Bloody Beetroots (DJ set), NERO (Live), Magnetic Man, Squarepusher, James Murphy, Little Dragon and many more.
According to reports, Boys Noize and Skrillex have collaborated on what is being called "300% break-acid-tech-noise."
Earlier this morning, Skrillex posted a teaser video for a track titled "Next Order," attributed to an artist called Dog Blood. The 1:43 video features the logos of both artists' labels - Skrillex's OWSLA and Boys Noize's Boysnoize Records - and is described as "MIDDLE FINGER ACID TERROR from Boysnoize Records and OWSLA".
Having appeared in Boys Noize's set at Tomorrowland, it's no surprise that speculation exists as to whether this is a new band or a side project for the two artists.
So far, neither Skrillex nor Boys Noize have commented on who or what exactly Dog Blood is, but Alex Rhida (BN), in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, did express his desire to explore harder sounds much like Skrillex's, saying "I always love to play jacking stuff and harder stuff... Right now, like in the last two years, a lot of the electronic music, or what you call now EDM, it feels too generic for me sometimes and a bit soulless."
While the entire world speculates and tries to figure out who this Dog Blood really is, be sure to peep the teaser video. From the sounds of it, it would be difficult to contend the strong possibility that the two have actually joined forces.
Skrillex out with a pair of remixes here, to which I've chosen to feature just one of two in this post. He's remixed Birdy Nam Nam's 'Going In' single, & his "Goin Hard" title to this remix perfectly describes exactly what you get. Enjoy this and GO HARD.
The brand new official video for Kaskade and Skrillex’s juggernaut collaboration “Lick It”, released back in October 2011, is finally upon us! Complete with a hefty remix package (out now on Ultra Records) from some of the biggest-hitters to match, Kaskade continues to demonstrate his A&R excellence and prowess as he breathes fresh life into an already exquisite release.
Taken from Kaskade’s critically acclaimed long player ‘Fire & Ice’, “Lick It” serves up a growling slice of electro-infused Skrillex gold, with the strongest sense of musicality and melody that underpins each and every Kaskade production – a stunning record from two of the most in-demand producers on the planet. Ryan explained:
“Collaborating with Skrillex for the track and video of ‘Lick It’ was one of the more unique opportunities I had when recording Fire & Ice,” said Kaskade. “Skrillex and I have different styles but that is part of what made it fun. I like doing the unexpected and this track and video is something truly distinctive.”
The ever eclectic three-track remix package, featuring unique re-licks from rising dubstep star Datsik, French house maestro Norman Doray and Italy’s very own Alex Kenji is available to buy now from iTunes.
Donned by The New York Times as the “new face of electronic dance music,” Kaskade recently wowed the EDM world with his brand new stage set up at California’s legendary Coachella festival, headlining the iconic Sahara tent on Saturday night to a truly immense reception. Continuing from this he’s just announced that this summer he’ll be taking on his biggest ever tour, with more than 50 North American shows across venues of all sizes; from ballrooms and theatres to arenas and festivals. The initial 35 dates announced for the “Freaks of Nature” Summer 2012 Tour will begin on May 25!
With other recent news that he will be performing at the globally-renowned Lollapalooza fest in August at Grant Park in Chicago and a handful of high profile European tour dates, 2012 is shaping up to be quite the year for Ryan.
