Skrillex – Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites (SteLouse & Ahh-Ooh Remix)
Skrillex has been known to work with some massive collaborators over the years like A$AP Rocky, Fatman Scoop, Chance the Rapper among many many others, but his latest is sure to surprise everyone. Over the past year Skrillex has been playing the 80's band Toto's iconic hit "Africa" during his sets, Inspired by his Australian friends What So Not. The track added a flashback to a timeless classic and a nice change of pace during both artists' high energy sets.
Well now it has been revealed that these hugely accredited producers are working with the LA based 6 piece band, over 30 years since the original hit was made. This should lead to some very interesting things given the polar opposite differences in their musical styles. We are looking forward to seeing what they both cooked up. Here's Toto's facebook status and more in depth thoughts about working with the producers below.
Here is what Toto had to say about Skrillex being such a nice guy to work with and how working with What So Not was a meeting of 2 generations.
"It is VERY melodic and Joe and I sang and the band is very cool and Skrillex is a very nice guy and very creative as are the team "What So Not' It was a 'love fest' right away and we created something from a germ of an idea they had and it was a meeting of 2 generations.. NEVER would have thought it worked.. they called US and we went and ended up writing and recording a VERY cool piece. It will be interesting to see what they do with this. I love a new fresh challenge. We all walked away happy on both sides. Great experiment that worked. Dont worry.. Toto is NOT going dubstep haha It was fun session and we made some new friends."
Watch Skrillex’s Epic Bonnaroo SuperJam Full Documentary Ft. Big Gigantic, Zedd, Damian Marley, Members Of The Grateful Dead, The Doors & Much MorePosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: A$AP Ferg, Big Gigantic, Bonnaroo, Cage the Elephant, Damian Marley, Grateful Dead, Lauryn Hill, Skrillex, Superjam, The Doors, Zedd
One of the longest running major festivals in the US, Bonnaroo recently announced it's full 2015 lineup last week. Along with the lineup announcement, was a teaser of the Skrillex and Friends SuperJam documentary, which was filmed leading up to and during last year's groundbreaking performance. Well today the festival has released the documentary in it's entirety for our viewing pleasure.
The teaser opens with a quote from Jim Morrison, lead singer of The Doors, who's band member Robby Krieger was actually apart of this very SuperJam:
"The new generation's music .. it might rely heavily on electronics"
SuperJams are known for being themed on a specific genre of music and bringing in singers and musicians from every genre to perform outside of their expected style; well 2014 was the debut year for electronic music. It only made sense bringing Skrillex to help host the epic set, along with Big Gigantic in which Dominic Lalli acted as the musical director and Jeremy Salken was the core drummer of the supergroup.
The laundry list of special guests included Zedd, A$AP Ferg, Lauryn Hill, Damian Marley, Thundercat, Mystikal, members of Incubus, Cage the Elephant, Warpaint as well as members from iconic American rock groups Grateful Dead and The Doors. Even some unexpected additions like Craig Robinson from The Office who showcased his singing skills in the mix. Seeing how an electronic curated jam session can be bringing in artists from across all genres is a massive statement for how far electronic music has come and become part of our culture.
You can now stream the entire documentary below and also through the U-verse Bonaroo website.
Also, Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic and Paul Peck, the SuperJam's musical director and producer respectively, are both set to answer some questions about the Jam in a Reddit AMA later today (8pm EST). Connect with the Reddit AMA here > Reddit.com/bonnaroo

Undeniably one of the biggest songs to hit the bass side of the dance music in 2014 was none other than Skrillex and Diplo's debut Jack Ü single “Take Ü There”. Gracing us on the last day of 2014, OWSLA has decided to bless us with a new Take Ü There remix by none other than Australian future bass star L D R U who is also one half of Carmada.
L D R U infuses his signature melodic synths with flume-esque vocal chops creating a very fun and bouncy remix. He retained Kiesza’s powerful vocals while adding in trap and future bass influences which makes this my favorite out of all the remixes dropped so far. OWSLA has released the stream today and if you’re lucky enough to be a Nest IV member you can login and snatch up a free download. Enjoy
