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!

Track of the Day: "Faster Than Light" - Far Too Loud

Ever since they stepped onto the field, Far Too Loud has been known for their throttling, high energy productions. The latest EP "Faster Than Light" holds true to their roots while adding another level of technicality to their arrangements. Oliver Cash, the man behind Far Too Loud, has a rare way of taking the usual electro-house wobbles and squeals and arranging them in a manner that is technical and unusual. The song kicks off with an ominous vocal clip that leads into a frenzied build with some whining synths and well-used filters. The verses have pounding rhythms which are tightly layered to keep the tempo moving at a break-neck pace - but this is just the warm up. The song title can be taken literally as the interlude carries a surprise. Instead of following traditional song structure and going back to the chorus, the tempo changes to double time and this track turns into an unrestrained drumstep thumper. The production quality is close to flawless, as even the most distorted and chaotic elements of the track rip through the mix in an incredibly clear manner. Pick up the EP today!

Free Download: "Wash Dat" - Alvin Risk

"Wash Dat" off the JunkFood EP is the next big song in Alvin Risk's repertoire. With his signature screeches and wobbles, Risk throws down an absolute monster of a track which easily wins my favorite on the EP. The high-pitched vocals blend in perfectly, setting you up for the signature OWSLA style bass attack. As Risk increases his notoriety throughout the EDM world I expect to see more tracks like this blazing through his sets as well as many others. Expect more greatness this summer from one of the scene's rising stars!

Video: Destroid Live @ Warfield, San Francisco

After a critically-acclaimed 10 track album release The Invasion featuring collaborations with the likes of Bassnectar and Far Too Loud (album stream here), the Dubstep collective has set off on their tour of North America guns fully loaded. The trio of Excision, Downlink, and Pendulum drummer KJ Sawka have been drawing attention for months now since the announcement of their revolutionary new style of live performances reliant on wireless MIDI controllers and digital drum kits. A quick look at the video below will have you assured that this experiment's about to take the bass world by storm in a fashion more riotous than any metal show. Prepare to be Destroid this summer when these three launch you to the stratosphere!
