I know it’s probably been forever since you listened to this early Skrillex classic, Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites. Me too. I must say,it’s still a helluva tune, and a stunning new future bass and trap remix of the song by both Colorado producer SteLouse and fellow Hebinomichi collective co-founder Aah-Ooh begs a return to the groundbreaking song. Together, they’ve created a fresh new Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites that’s thrilling and exhilarating. The song first premiered late last week on This Song Is Sick.

By now, I’m sure everyone’s heard about the surprise Skrillex album in some way, shape, or form. The album is titled Recess, and Sonny Moore gave no hint before this morning that he was going to drop a bomb on us. The 11 track album features a long list of amazing collaborators and showcases Skrillex’s burgeoning, growing ability to incorporate different genres into his music. I noticed this over the past year, and at his live show when he did his series of Takeovers quite recently (note to self, pay parking citation from that night, ugh). Instead of sharing the whole thing, as many have done, I’m presenting a few choice cuts that I liked a lot immediately. Above, stream the title track Recess, which features Kill The Noise, Fatman Scoop, and Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit. Seriously, all the tracks are super dope, but these are ones that stood out more from the boundless drops and beats earlier this morning on first listen. Check out the more subtle (as if Skrillex is ever subtle, ha) Stranger below, featuring KillaGrahm. I was also much delighted and surprised when I reached track number 10 and Niki & The Dove’s DJ Ease My Mind suddenly came into the picture. I’ve been a huge fan of that song for like, four years now, and really loved Niki & The Dove’s debut album 2 years ago. They’ve been silent as hell for the past while, and this Skrillex flip of the tune was a real pleasant surprise. Check it out below, too! To stream the full album, head over here.

Montreal electropop producer Blood Diamonds quickly grew on me with stand out Grimes collaboration Phone Sex. I love his shimmery, electric, future pop sound. Grimes was an obvious and fantastic collaboration choice. The producer’s latest track is titled Barcode and features Dominic Lord on trappy rap vocals. It’s hard hitting yet chill at the same time. It’s no Phone Sex, but it’s still some addicting beats. The single drops on February 26 off OWSLA, Skrilly’s label.

EP STREAM: Skrillex – Leaving

January 3, 2013

Yep, the busy dubstep maestro has a brand new surprise EP today titled Leaving! It’s 3 tracks of electric fun. It seems he’s going for a less explosive, slightly more minimalist and glitchy approach in the first track The Reason. The harder, familiar beats start kicking in again on Scary Bolly Dub (is it me or does that sound like a Pokemon name?). In fact, it’s a track that he plays a lot live so you’d recognize some of the transitions. Hearing it brings me back to the insanity of seeing Skrillex live at Outside Lands 2012. He finishes up with Leaving, which he wrote recently on tour. It seems he quickly put together this little package for fun and as a small treat.

OFFICIAL VID: Skrillex – Summit (feat. Ellie Goulding)

This is for the bassheads, though it’s on the lighter side of bass music. Brand new video has been dropped (ha, pun intended) for Skrilly’s song Summit, which features none other than his ex, Ellie Goulding. I hope there’s no hard feelings and bad blood between them, so they can work together more in the future. You gotta admit, Ellie’s voice works wondrously with Skrillex’s style of dubstep. It’s an uplifting, gorgeous piece of EDM. The song was off his hit EP Bangarang.
