This one dropped a little earlier today and it’s an absolute must that we post it. A$AP Rocky travels to the Dominican Republic with Skrillex and the A$AP Mob to shoot the video for “Wild for the Night”. Really like how this one looks, especially the scene with the torches and scripture in the background. It’s dope seeing artists going out of their way and using much more than a green screen to create unique music videos.
Bootlegger Ken Loi drops a new edit of two songs that were huge hits in the EDM genre this year. Afrojack’s “Rocking the House” and Skrilex & The Doors’ “Breaking a Sweat(Zedd Remix)” get mashed up on this new edit. Pretty sick mix if you ask me. You can listen to the track below and at Ken Loi’s Soundcloud page.
Not sure if you’ve seen this boating accident footage, but it’s a lot more entertaining now that Skrillex was added to it. We don’t condone people getting hurt or anything, but this one has to be seen. Everyone survived so no worries about the victims.

We know that electro is taking over the music scene, but Michael Jackson might be turning over in his grave after hearing this. Apparently Diplo, A-Trak, and Skrillex are about to work together and remake his hit single “Bad”. For more information on this one click here.
Not sure if you noticed this yesterday but Deadmau5 was wearing a shirt that displayed Skrillex’s private phone number and the term “u mad bro?” underneath it. Could this be a DJ beef brewing?
The Grammy’s haven’t aired yet but you better believe they’re already giving out awards. Kanye West has earned three Grammy’s already winning best rap album with “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fanstasy”, best rap song for “All of the Lights”, and best rap collaboration for the same track. Skrillex also took away some trophies after winning best dance/electronica album with “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites”, the title track on that album won best dance recording and his remix of “Cinema” won best remixed recording, non-classical. Not bad for the 24-year-old super producer/dj. Tune into the Grammy’s 8PM Eastern.
