Skrillex and Diplo's collab project Jack Ü continues to bring us a stream of all star remixes of their debut single "Take Ü There". Following up the recent Zeds Dead version, we now have Paris based future house pioneer Tchami offering his own spin. We hear Tchami deliver his signature house sound with an even more heavy twist on the drops, which makes sense considering who he is remixing. Looks like Tchami is not slowing down anytime soon as he continues to establish himself as one of the most exciting producers to be watching out for. You can stream the song below, but be on the look out to pick up your copy alongside the upcoming Take Ü There Remix EP set to release December 23rd. Enjoy!

What happens when you gather 40 of the best producers, DJs, musicians, and vocalists downunder to try and create one sensational new track? Triple J radio personalities Matt and Alex made a valiant effort to construct a “Hottest 100” record with some of the biggest names in music and documented the experience for all to see.
Sadly, Lorde wanted no part in the endeavor and opted out at the first opportunity. Next, warious artists start chiming in with opinions on what it takes to build a great song, with Flume making sure everyone knew that laptops are essential in the process before Reggie Watt’s cuts out a distorted vocal sample. The mention of synths and bass, albeit the guitar, are shoved at Diplo who declines the notion while triggering Skrillex to eventually “drop the bass” accidently.
Bickering ensues amongst the group, but have no fear, because Flume was again on hand and reminded everyone that "(he) could remix the track!"
The creative process eventually leads to everyone storming out due to Rick Astley, Mr. Rick Roll himself, being kicked off the team and we are left without a true track that combines everyones talents. But hey, at least the attempt made for an entertaining 5 minute video. Laugh and enjoy!
Skrillex and Diplo are taking this year by storm with their own solo projects and their newly formed collaboration Jack Ü; all set to perform at the iconic Madison Square Garden on New Year's Eve. The duo's single "Take Ü There" ft. Kiesza has become an anthem over the past few months and is now turning out some incredible remixes. The track has been taken on by many producers such as Slander and Drunken Masters, but today we may have the hottest of them all from Canadian based duo Zeds Dead. The guys keep the song's original tempo highlighting the vocals, but add a new catchy melody that dives right into a ZD signature drop making it a straight heater. The "Take Ü There" remixes are available Dec. 23rd but in the meantime you can stream the song below and purchase the original on iTunes.

One of the most impressive songs from Skrillex’s debut album has to be the collaboration with Diplo on the massive anthem “Dirty Vibe”. The gritty club tune features some fierce verses from K-Pop stars CL & G-Dragon and highlights both rappers throughout the video. They are accompanied by some outrageous dancers and over the top visuals to capture the dark edge of the song. Enjoy!

We were lucky enough to be there for the set during and as expected, they certainly impressed. The group debuted an onslaught of new material including bootlegs, originals, and remixes. One of the most standout moments of the set was a bootleg mashup of Skrillex's infamous take on "Cinema" and Andy C's remix of Major Lazer's "Get Free". The track was recently featured in the Jack U's 2 hour BBC mix and was given out as a limited free download through the OWSLA store.

Probably the most exciting supergroup to take the electronic world by storm this year is the colossal duo Jack Ü. Fresh off their Power 106 hip-hop mix, Skrillex and Diplo have unveiled the official video for their hit single “Take Ü There” featuring the amazing Canadian singer Kiesza.
The video showcases the rowdy energy at the first live Jack Ü performances; an awesome on-stage perspective whether you were able to catch them this year or not. If there's one thing these two kings of EDM know how to do better then most, it's put on a damn good show. The other elements of the video really kick it up a notch. The layers of animation are at times extra weird, and at times funny (watch out for Skrilly's pizza toss at 3:12); but always interesting. Stream the video below. Enjoy
