"I F*cking Love My Life Right Now…"
The words echoed throughout a packed audience within the Sahara Tent at Coachella Music Festival as Skrillex, one of the top producer / DJs of our current electronic music generation, took the stage full of zest and sporting a brand new production rig for his one of a kind "mothership". Sensory overload was greeted with an engaging performance from the OWSLA kingpin as a combination of stunning visuals on display for the first time and tailored specifically for this set, coincided with the artists signature delivery of music spanning multiple genres. Yes, bass music was the main focal point of the performances as were tracks off Skrillex's recent debut artists album Recess, but the rawness and fearlessness to transition into hip-hop/rap, place an interlude featuring MGMT's "Kids", and having guest appearances from Dillon Francis and A$AP Rocky made the set as special for those in attendance or watching at home could have asked for. Stream the set below via SoundCloud or Youtube below and above all… Enjoy!

They have certainly always been very ahead of the curve when it comes to booking talent bringing in next years' superstars time and time again, largely due to founder of Triad Dragons, the promoter, who always has such hands on involvement every single year with booking the lineup.
This year the festival has another eclectic lineup featuring headliners Zedd, Adventure Club and Destroid alongside Carnage, Showtek, Wolfgang Gartner, Bro Safari, Andy C, ETC!ETC!, David Heartbreak and Savant.
