An unlikely collaboration — Skrillex vs Korn

31 Mar



Although Sonny Moore (aka Skrillex) was heavily invested in the hardcore scene a few years back when he was the frontman for From First To Last, it still caught me off guard to hear that he’s going to be doing a collaboration with the band Korn.

There is only a super short clip available now, but it is sounding fantastic so far. I’ll be updating this post as new developments are made.

Upcoming Skrillex tracks

29 Mar


Ever since his release, Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites, fans have been waiting so patiently for new Skrillex songs. He’s previewed many songs in his live shows but has had very little in the way of official releases. In this article, I’ll show 3 new songs of his. Although all of the previews are low quality, they’re at least some sort of sneak peek.

First up is a song that Skrillex has been playing live for a couple months now, but it got an official premier on BBC’s March 22 Radio 1 program. It’s going to be titled “First of the Year”

This next song has also been played live for a couple months. It’s going to be in the upcoming iteration in the Mortal Kombat series. This is Skrillex’s personal theme music for the character Reptile (it is named after him). Here’s a short clip of it that was ripped from a live streaming session he did.

And here is the official Mortal Kombat commercial that features “Reptile”

Finally, Skrillex linked his twitter followers to a fan’s video of him performing at Laidback Luke’s ‘Super You and Me’ party. The opening track from this set is a brand new drumstep song which is incredibly hard-hitting.
