Skrillex – BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

Skrillex - BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

This weekend, American dubstep phenomenon Skrillex whipped the internet into a frenzy with his second BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. This two hour mix features all the latest sounds from house to trap and of course that face melting dubstep that helped catapult Sonny to main stages across the world. Being one of the most polarizing faces in dance music, it’s only right that Skrillex’s essential mix be a bit unusual. Fans waiting for him to “drop the bass” will have to sit through almost half of the set to hear that trademark, Grammy winning sound. The first half includes house tracks like ‘Higher’ from Destructo and ‘When a Fire Starts to Burn’ by Disclosure. Then, Skrillex flips the switch with his genre melting ‘Wild For The Night’ (Dog Blood Remix) and sets the tempo for the rest of the mix. Stand out tracks include new release from Boys Noize ‘Excuse Me’, and Dog Blood’s ‘Middle Finger 2’.

Gone are the days of Skrillex being labeled as a one trick pony. Alex Ridha’s house influence seems to have rubbed off on Skrillex a bit after forming Dog Blood, and his taste in rap shows with tracks from Kendrick Lamar and his new buddy A$ap Rocky. Besides being able to incite crowds into a riot with his catalog he’s added new and completely different sounds to his arsenal. Sonny continues to cross over forming another DJ super group with Diplo under the name Jack-U who will be performing this summer at select locations for Mad Decent’s Block Party.
