Details Revealed for Skrillex’s First Full-Length Studio Album
Considering all the awards he racked up for Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites and Bangarang, it’s hard to believe that the producer born Sonny Moore hasn’t yet released a full-length album under his Skrillex moniker.
Yet, the L.A.-born dubstep producer has put out a series of EPs and singles from the start of gaining fame in the EDM sphere. However, as of this week, details of a full-length album emerged through Skrillex’s website.
According to a report from Dancing Astronaut, the album is to be called Recess and is expected to drop on March 18. The producer, as well, started dropping hints with a game app called Alien Ride, which featured a timer and a secret folder. The timer has since expired and someone managed to hack the folder, finding in the process 11 unnamed tracks, all with codes and time stamps.
Since that occurred, more tracks from Recess have surfaced online. The first, which came out on March 10, was “All is Fair in Love and Brostep” – kind of a cheeky nod to the darker, grimier sounds his dubstep subgenre has become known for. Then, not long after, the album’s title track, a collaboration with Fatman Scoop and Kill the Noise, came out online.
To get a sense of what Skillex’s full-length debut may sound like, listen to the two tracks below:
