The amount of collaborations Skrillex is currently sitting on could easily break the internet. In the works are projects with Flume, Yellow Claw, Dillon Francis, What So Not, Snails, Must Die, and the freestanding Jack Ü project with longtime friend Diplo; all are currently awaiting full-fledge releases heading towards the new year. Today, one of these vaulted collaborations is being released in full. Skrillex has teamed up with emerging bass enthusiast Trollphace for a thunderous remix of fellow OWSLA production trio Yogi. The original production of "Burial" suited the two artists perfectly as they layered in wonky bass effects and middle eastern aesthetics across different sections.

The hype surrounding producers Skrillex and Diplo under their new outfit as Jack U couldn't be higher since the collaboration's announcement. Recently we've gotten to hear what these two have been producing; from the first single "Take U There" featuring singer Kiesza released earlier this month to a two hour mix on BBC Radio 1Xtra this past weekend. Both producers have hinted at some form of official Jack U release bigger then a single, stating different facts through twitter and interviews, ranging from either a mixtape, an EP, or even a full album.
As we've covered, Skrill and Diplo took over the Diplo and Friends radio show this weekend for a special Jack U two hour mix debuting quite a few unreleased new songs; with collaborations ranging from 2 Chainz to AlunaGeorge. One track in particular that caught our ears was a collaboration with Montreal's newest bass icon and growing TSIS favorite, SNAILS. The track is currently untitled still as "ID".
This only further cements SNAILS as one of the most exciting new names in bass music. The collaboration, while surprising, isn't entirely unexpected considering Skrillex's support for SNAILS this year; OWSLA released two anthems by the up-and-coming producer, "Wild" and "Pump This”. The debut of the Jack U track only adds to SNAILS breakout year now having collaborated with two of the most influential figures in electronic world.
Listen below to the preview of the song via a clip from the Jack U Diplo and Friends mix. It is one of the most brutal and epic songs I have heard in quite a while. The energy behind this track is highlighted by the insanely intrecate and strange sounds that are the woven melody. Blending so many genres from trap to dubstep to reggae leaving us with a completely new genre we can only call “Jack Snails” or maybe "Snail U", this untitled track gets us more and more excited for what's to come. Let us know what you think of this monster below. As always, enjoy!

Diplo and Skrillex's newest joint project Jack U, the collaboration powerhouse that has headlined some select 2014 events including Ultra and Hard Summer, is rumored to also have a proper release -album, EP, or mixtape- in the works. We heard the first track from the duo “Take U There”, just over a month ago, which featured singer Kiesza and gave us the first taste of Jack U's production. This weekend we got to hear what else the guys have been cooking up in their brand new 2 hour long Jack U mix for Diplo and Friends radio show.
Their is so much unreleased music in this mix that it’s almost overwhelming. The producers have unveiled their collaboration with 2 Chainz called “Febreeze”; and a collaboration with exploding bass producer SNAILS which is currently untitled, yet sounds like one of biggest tunes on the entire mix. A few more Jack U songs called “Cumbia Maluca” and “Jungle Bae” are peppered throughout the mix. Diplo also gave us the debut his collaboration with DJ Snake “Drop” in the form of the Boxinbox & Lionsize remix. DJ Snake made another debut as his remix of Skrillex’s “Dirty Vibe” was slipped in as well.
Sit back and enjoy 2 hours of mostly unreleased music that proves why these two are some of the most influential guys in the scene right now. Enjoy!
