The much anticipated Jack U duo that has kept us patiently (or impatiently) waiting for some material has unveiled a new track for us. Skrillex and Diplo are superstar producers who have teased their collaboration for some time now, and delivered their second track at Burning Man last week. This video incudes both Jack U songs that we've heard with the new one starting at aroung the 3:30 mark.
This new tune "To U" featuring vocals from AlunaGeorge melds the styles from both producers as each of their sounds come through individually, but their efforts work together to create a unique sound different from either of their typical solo releases. This new tune utilizes Rustie-style slashing synths alongside sexy, energetic female vocals.
There was a lot of buzz around Burning Man this past week including rumors that Skrillex and Diplo were booed off stage. Diplo was upset about these false rumors and released an extended tweet, part of which is below. Read Diplo's entire statement here.
…Everyone on stage had a fun moment when we played a few tunes as we were Just killing time while the next dj was setting up.. We weren't kicked off or booed .. Jus wrapped our set up with an inside joke … And of all the stories to come out after an amazing week… This is pretty tabloidish that's not what burningman is about.. Everything we did there was good fun and all the people that attended knows it..

On top of just producing music, his consistent touring schedule see's him popping up in more places than you can fathom within a calendar year. But this hasn't deterred the iconic mogul from releasing a brand new full length compilation album appropriately titled Random White Dude Be Everywhere via his own imprint label Mad Decent.

New tracks like the recent collab with Steve Aoki and Deorro on "Freak", a monster turn up anthem "6th Gear" which is a joing effort track with DJ Alvaro and Kstylis, and the party banger "Techno" featuring rapper Wacka Flocka Flame. Random White Dude Me Everywhere is pure bliss for on the ears for Diplo fans new and old; listen to the entire album in full below and pick up your own copy through iTunes today. Enjoy!

Diplo is quite the guy I must say. He's never one to let up on providing entertainment from his stream of greatness via social media or jokingly acknowledging that his recent cut of Lorde "Tennis Court" didn't exceed the remix done by friend and Australian powerhouse producer Flume. The Mad Decent head honcho recently took to Reddit to conduct an AMA and shared some juicy news on his supergroup project with Skrillex known as Jack U. The breakout collaboration of these two titans is coming out with a full length mixtape, which is something that could potentially crash the internet upon its release. The overflow of new material between the two found its way into Diplo's recently as he played out their first single "Take You There" in front of a daytime crowd. Though the video doesn't have the best audio, you can hear the excitement (largely the two girls confessing their love for Diplo) as songstress Kiesza lays down her pipes over a Jack U produced trap and bass beat that screams massive banger. Until we see the official release of the single or the news on the highly anticipated mixtape… Enjoy!
