International icon for all things bass music, Skrillex, made history this past weekend as he headlined Ultra Music Festival in Miami closing out the entire festival on the main stage. This was the very same slot that Swedish House Mafia played their very last show 2 years ago, which is a testament to the changing of times.
For such a massive slot, Skrillex obviously had to bring out some very special guests to make it a night to remember starting with his partner in crime Diplo joining for the entire set making it a Surprise Jack Ü performance, which makes sense since they are hot off the release of their long awaited debut collaborative album. He also brought out Kiesza, Kai, and CL to perform all their respective tracks live. It wouldn’t be a proper Miami party if none other than rapper and hip-hop mogul P. Diddy hadn’t been brought out, which he proceeded to MC the rest of the set. Then for the closing track, Skrillex and Diplo perform their single “Where Are Ü Now” featuring Justin Bieber for the first time ever live since it has been released with the accompaniment from Bieber himself. Regardless of his obvious lip synching, he does do a respectable robot dance and adds a final touch to the unforgettable performance. Sit back, go full screen and enjoy the entire iconic performance in full HD thanks to Skrillex and Ultra. Enjoy!

Ultra Music Festival in Miami is a pinnacle electronic dance event every year, and the festival promoters are kings of building hype with their trailers and after movies. They have just released a brand new 2 minute video that features what sounds like a familiar new favorite artist. We hear Kygo’s signature upbeat melodies and extra smooth percussion elements that couldn’t be anyone but him.
Last year the festival featured his remix of Syn Cole's "Miami 82", so it is very fitting to debut a new song this year to the trailer for 2015.
They have labeled the song as "ID – ID", but we think it has to be Kygo with his unmistakable sound. Comment with your thoughts below!
UPDATE: So the song yesterday was in fact Kygo. The song is now available to hear in full via Spotify.
While the dust has settled from one of the largest gatherings for electronic music enthusiasts globally, Ultra Music Festival in Miami, we are still seeing sets surface from the event.

New collab's with Martin Garrix, TJR, Major Lazer, and a fresh remix of Chromeo's "Jealous" were mixed in with Dillon's original tracks during the hour long performance.
