Exclusive Behind The Scenes Footage Of Skrillex & Friends Rehearsing Before Bonnaroo “SuperJam” [FULL SETLIST]Posted in Bangin, Events, Video by nick | Tags: Big Gigantic, Bonnaroo, Chance the Rapper, Fatman Scoop, Janelle Monáe, Mickey Hart of The Grateful Dead, Robby Kreiger of The Doors, Skrillex, Superjam, Thundercat, Warpaint, Zedd
Bonnaroo is possibly one of the most diverse music festivals across the globe and one of the things that makes it so special is the unique "SuperJam" sets where musicians from all styles of music collaborate for once in a lifetime performances.
We reported a few months back about the announcement of Skrillex's SuperJam bringing out Big Gigantic to help set the tone just right. This is also the first ever SuperJam in Bonnaroo's history to be focused around electronic music with rappers, R&B singers, and live musicians filling out the spaces. The occasion called for Skrillex to meet with his star studded cast of band mates the week leading up to the festival to rehearse their set. In the exclusive behind the scenes footage below, we see Skrillex jaming out with the likes of legendary New Orleans rapper Mystikal, comedian / pianist Craig Robinson, both Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken of Big Gigantic, Fatman Scoop and many others.
The actual SuperJam took place on Saturday night at the festival and damn it was legendary. Ring leaders Skrillex and Big Gigantic's list of "friends" included so much raw musical talent we hope we aren't missing anyone. The list of friends includes Zedd, Robby Kreiger of The Doors, Mickey Hart of The Grateful Dead, Damian Marley, Chance the Rapper, A$AP Ferg, Layrn Hill, Janelle Monae, Warpaint, Thundercat, and the surprise of Fatman Scoop, Mystikal, and Craig Robinson on the keys.
The set itself included countless covers of music outside of electronic foundations with a new set of artists coming in every 3 – 4 songs and the entire jam lasting close to three hours in length. In the truest of ways, it was the first ever Super Jam with an electronic focus to happen in front of a live audience and those who were lucky enough to witness the spectacle were treated to the rawness of creative expression in todays modern form. Those who were lucky enough to be there watching the pefroamnce with us are the only ones lucky enough to ever experience this once in a lifetime "Jam". You can view the video below of some of the madness that took place and the photo's taken. Enjoy

Genre blending and crafty innovations in sound design best describes the work of UK native and OWSLA / MTA Records producer Moody Good much anticipated self-titled artist album which hits shelves on June 2nd and 3rd in its respective regions. With the whole album available to stream on SoundCloud now before the release, we've dissected the robust 15 track offering which showcases a vast collection of forward think breaks, gritty bass influxes, UK garage stylings, and transitions between tranquil and savage synth patterns featured throughout.
My personal favorites are the collaborations with two highly coveted songstresses, Eryn Allen Kane on "Musicbx" and Haleighblu on "Living Off The High" & "Bubbles", where the chill bass instrumentals allow the ladies to flow some sultry R&B soaked lyrics over the production. From start to finish the album takes takes less an hour to digest, but within that minute amount of time the beauty of Moody Goods meticulous perfection in each song is apparent and inspiring with this solo endeavor from his previous days as 1/2 of 16bit proving to be fruitful. Stream and pre-order the release below, but above all… Enjoy

This is the big one folks! While visiting Toronto for a stop on the The Mothership Tour, Dillon Francis and Skrillex meet up with deadmau5 for the longest "Coffee Run" to date with the episode clocking in at an actual feature film length (Over an hour and a half!). With such a good amount of time recorded, a whole lot of comical conversation took place amongst some reportable information that will peak the interest of many. deadmau5 talks about hitting the road for a tour in 2015 (though we hope this takes place closer to the end of this year), Skrillex and Dillon have collaborated on two tracks thus-far while on tour, Skrillex is finishing one release with What So Not (guessing with just Emoh Instead and not Flume), and a Skrillex x Milo & Otis joint venture has at least been started. Other highlights include deadmau5 trying to pass off as Bob Saget around the 38 minute mark, the three producers rocking out to Motörhead's "Ace Of Spades" (50:47), and the constant verbal distain for Toronto traffic. Sit back and enjoy the video below!

The mission was simple when heavyweight bass enthusiasts Snails and Antiserum went in on one of the biggest collaborative releases of the year; to create a tune that would leave listeners jaws on the floor upon hearing the madness at hand. "Wild" delivers just that, having witnessed the aforementioned reaction firsthand when the track made its debut at Ultra Music Festival during Diplo and Skrillex's most recent Jack U performance. The attention gained support from the likes of Kill the Noise, Adventure Club, Datsik, Flux Pavilion, DJ Snake, and others since the initial debut leading up to todays delivery. A taunting build makes way for a mighty combination of raw bass hits and trap drums, with Big Ali as there hype man instigating the mayhem throughout. This is more than a mere anthem, but a riot inducing jump off capable of shutting down clubs and festival stages as far as the eye can see. Stream the exclusive premiere below and pick up your copy through Beatport via Skrillex's infamous OWSLA label now. Enjoy
