Skrillex BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

It's been a crazy year so far for Sonny Moore, and now's the time for his essential Essential comeback. The crazy rocker from L.A. initially spun for Pete Tong back in 2011, and his second run has been eagerly anticipated by fans and critics like myself alike. The new studio mix combines new music from Dog Blood (his energy-fueled Electro-Bass collaboration with Boys Noize), AC Slater, Alvin Risk, Knife Party, and Skrillex himself.

While many rightfully predicted that the Skrillex persona would take a backseat after his breakup with Skrill-ex Ellie Goulding for Dog Blood to continue its grand unveiling, tonight's mix turned out to be an ode to his versatility as an artist rather than a promotion of his next undertaking. During the press conference at IMS Engage in Hollywood, Skrillex was asked regarding “the kickback” from veteran DJs and artists against his popular, video game-step sound. "I think there's so much criticism that's nice," he told the floor. "People love it, or they hate it. If you look at a painting in an art gallery, even if you hate it, at least it makes you feel something. You've got this new, loud, bombastic punk rock energy that's coming in with electronic music, then you have the old-school techno, which comes from a different place and energy, even though it's all electronic music. We're all coming together – there wasn't a Yuma tent [where underground house and techno names played] last year at Coachella, and now there is." Be sure to catch Skrillex alongside conspirator Alex Ridha (Boys Noize) at the OWSLA-hosted Riverside Tent Friday at Electric Zoo, after hearing their set at Ultra this year I can assure you that's going to be one party you don't want to miss!

Exclusive Preview: "Annie's Theme" - Afrojack

If you were at Bayfront Park in Miami back in March for Ultra Music Festival, you may remember hearing this track drop at Afrojack's headlining set. As a follow up to his massively successful and catchy new tune "Rock the House," "Annie's Theme" does pretty well. While this single, which made its debut recently on BBC Radio 1 may undergo a namechange and a few edits before being released, we're still always excited to hear that trademark Afrojack sound. With glitchy Dutch House drops, high pitched pin-drops, and a similar setup to past hit "Replica," this one's sure to be a hit. Even if you aren't the hugest Afro-fan, you have to give the guy credit - touring around the globe and simulatenously churning out originals is no easy task, even if you fly the Afrojet. Check it, and watch out for more new tracks from Afroman (he's been dropping a lot of new stuff in his sets).
