So, it turns out that being Skrillex is exactly what you thought it was like. The video for Sonny Moore's new single "Try it Out (Neon Mix)" features footage of the producer traveling the world and wilding out at parties. There's Skrillex jumping around his hotel room! There's Skrillex on a safari! There's Skrillex at the beach! (In black pants!) There's Skrillex doing a DJ thing as flames and smoke shoot many stories in the sky! Let this serve as the final exhibit in Your Life vs. Skrillex's Life. The defense rests.
"Try it Out" is a collaboration with OWSLA signee Alvin Risk. The track packs in the shrieking tones and scraping bass you've come to love from Skrillex, with screwed vocals on top that are the product of rap and EDM growing ever closer. (Thanks, A$AP Rocky collaboration.) Moore has new material on the way, with "Try it Out" billed as a hint of what's to come. He will also be playing some American dates this fall in mid-size clubs just because he can. You can go hang out with him, Diplo, Zedd, Disclosure, and Ryan Hemsworth on a cruise in January.
