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.
12th Planet is blasting through 2012, which started off with a North American tour to celebrate the release of his 'The End Is Near!" EP. To top it off, 12th Planet "Reasons" (Doctor P Remix) was named one of the '30 Greatest Dubstep Songs of All Time" by SPIN Magazine -- after all, "nothing set the tone for domestic bass culture quite like this Planet's orbit," says SPIN. This fall, the American Dubstep King continues his reign with tours that storm through North America (in support of Dada Life and Pretty Lights), as well as his first headlining tour in Asia.
12th Planet has also just re-launched his website, www.12thPlanet2012.com, in a joint venture partnership with ElectroStub and Church of Merch, with plans to integrate ticketing solutions and merchandise with tools to better connect and serve his fans. By self-distributing his own merchandise, show tickets and downloads, this acclaimed DJ is joining the ranks of many forward-thinking pioneers in the entertainment space who understand the importance of owning their own data and keeping service fees low for fans.

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.
We have your order for 142 Trigger Fingers...haha!
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.
