DJ Snake Wishes Skrillex Happy Birthday 148 Days Early

Having consulted Wikipedia thoroughly I can say that notable celebrity birthday for August 20th includes Demi Lovato, Andrew Garfield, Amy Adams and a whole lot of athletes. What they don’t include however is Skrillex. But don’t tell DJ Snake that because he wished Skrillex happy birthday anyway.

In a since deleted tweet, shout-out to EDM Sauce for the screenshot, DJ Snake posted a photo of himself and Skrillex to celebrate the music icon’s birthday. Unfortunately, he was 148 days early (or 217 dates late) depending on how you look at it because Skrillex’s actual birthday is January 15th.

Fortunately, some of the Twitter replies still exist.

Still love you king

Shout-out to both DJ Snake and Skrillex for being good sports about it and hopefully Snake gets his calendar resynced properly soon. And ironically enough? The photo DJ Snake posted of himself and Skrillex o..

Said The Sky – Pray For Me (ft. Origami)

He might not be a household name just yet, but Said The Sky has enough talent to rival his roommate Illenium. That couldn’t be more apparent in his new single “Pray For Me,” an ultra-melodic and polished track featuring vocals from a new talent to the scene in Origami.

The release is courtesy of Seeking Blue and comes on the heels of tracks from Seven Lions and Illenium, so it’s safe to say that Said The Sky is in good company. As for Origami, he’s a fresh talent that we’ll be keeping our eyes on considering how impressive his first feature sounds.

Listen to “Pray For Me” (feat. Origami) below!

Skrillex Promises “Humble” Remix Release Coming “Very Soon”

We just caught wind that Skrillex is releasing his nastiest remix yet any day now!

Kendrick Lamar‘s “Humble” is a straight up beast on its own, but the OWSLA producer takes things to the next level with his already “viral” version of the track. Tapping into his dubbier side, Skrillex gives his fans exactly what they’ve been yearning for with booming bass and wubs to boot.

But, we’re getting a little caught up in the moment. As for an official release, the man himself promises its coming very soon:

@Skrillex i love your Humble remix! Any news on the release date?

— Patrickkkk (@N3SOofficial) August 20, 2017

Verryyy Soon https://t.co/iXQclwKTNq

— SKRILLEX (@Skrillex) August 20, 2017

The “Humble” (Skrillex Remix) has become a staple within the producer’s most notable sets this year… It first echoed into the night at FORM Arcosanti and since then crowds at HARD Summer and Webster Hall have witnessed the insanity of the bass-driven hip hop banger first hand.

For now, here are the be..

Said The Sky Performs Illenium Album Collaboration “Where’d U Go” [VIDEO]

Since the rapid rise to superstardom in the last several months, Illenium has quickly become a household name in EDM making his forthcoming sophomore album Awake one of the most anticipated in EDM this year. Earlier, this month Illenium shared the full tracklist for the album. If you’re a longtime fan of Illenium there’s probably a name out there that jumped right at you – Said the Sky.

Both artists have collaborated several times in the past and are set to do so once more on the album for album track “Where’d U Go” – a track that Said the Sky played out in all of its glory at Das Energi Festival in Salt Lake City earlier this week.

Though only a minute long all of the usual melodic elements from both artists are present. The track also features a mystery female vocalist on the hook – though personally, I think it’s Joni Fatora. Preorder Awake here now!

Ookay’s Twitter & SoundCloud Got Hacked By The Same Guy That Took Over Carnage’s SoundCloud

You can now add the mastermind behind festival banger “Thief” Ookay to the small-yet-growing list of DJs who have been hacked by ‘Quinn.’ This is the same guy who’s hacked Slushii and Carnage last week and runs with the Twitter handle @zg per Carnage.

Late last night, Ookay’s Twitter suddenly started to tweet frequently about ‘Q the god’ before retweeting a tweet from Quinn’s own zg account. While there’s been no activity since then – around 5:30am – we’re now seeing that Ookay’s SoundCloud has also been compromised.

Not one to shy away, Quinn has changed Ookay’s SoundCloud bio and header to boast of his own success. Take a look for yourself here and stay tuned to see who gets hit next.

Skrillex Spotted in Studio with Rapper Josh X and Rising Hip Hop Group

Skrillex is in the studio yet again — this time with a group of rising hip hop artists known as the KSR Group.

It seems nothing is off limits for the influential producer. Most recently, he’s put out his own collaborations with Vindata and Poo Bear, teamed up with DJ Sliink and Wale, produced a track for girl group Fifth Harmony, and that’s just scratching the surface on his big year in the studio.

“Straight vibes” the social post by rapper Josh X captions the moment, as a group of artists and Skrillex work together. “Not many times you get to be in the room filled with greatness.”

Shaft, J White, and DJ SwanQo are also tagged in the video, which boasts a booty bouncing beat and a hashtag that hints at a possible song title, #trappedinlove.

We can’t wait to hear what Skrillex is working on this time!
