The Reason I Got 99 Problems is a tasteful combination of Skrillex’s hard-hitting sounds and Jay-Z’s phenomenal lyrics. This is a dope/fresh mashup we have here thanks to Mistermike… and it’s nicely put together! Where’s summer when you need it?
Just released is a fun, artistic video friends of Skrillex put together for his song Summit. It’s a collage of fond memories and good times, all things we should value.
In addition, Skrillex also released something new himself… a 3 song EP he’s entitled The Leaving EP. This isn’t much from the Grammy winning artist — because you all know we want more Skrillex — but this will do for now!
Skrillex – The Leaving EP
How appropriate is the title of this song? Before their recent break-up, Ellie Goulding and Skrillex had worked on a track together and titled it Bittersweet. It clearly wasn’t something they planned, but it works out perfectly. Moving on: this isn’t the first time these two worked together, if you recall Skrillex’s Summit. Similar in ways, their new track is a very mellow and vulnerable piece. Expect to find this track on the new Breaking Dawn Part 2 Soundtrack.
It’s crazy how much EDM has progressed over the years. This style of music would have been brushed aside a mere 5 years ago, but now it’s center stage. Skrillex, whom has contributed a lot to this movement, is now being called up to participate in animated movies and video games! Who would have thought? This is a collaborated effort with Alvin Risk for the new Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 video game. Rumor has it that this will be featured during the end credits… what a way to finish a game!
I can just picture a sea of people going absolutely mental when this track is dropped in a set. Some might not even know what hit them when the drop hits… and man, does it hit hard!

New Skrillex hitting the airwaves. A little tame by usual Skrilly standards, but it’s definitely a party tune. Dope sounds.
New release from the “prince of dubstep” and America’s very own, Wolfgang Gartner. This came out on his new EP “Bangarang” which dropped yesterday! Download link.
This is probably the quietest Skrillex has ever been! His “filthy” drops and basslines are non-existent in Breathe… I am afraid this dude has gone into a deep depression! With all kidding aside, it’s kind of nice to hear something different from Skrillex. Is this what we can expect on his upcoming EP?
