Skrillex & Diplo shook the music world in 2014 with the announcement of their collaborative Jack Ü project. Jack Ü is the full realization of Skrillex & Diplo’s individual talents as two of the most prolific producers in the world, crafting energetic hybrid blends of pop, hip-hop and dance music.
After their monumental co-headline show at the legendary Madison Square Garden on New Years Eve, they teased new music with their single “Take Ü There”, featuring vocals from explosive pop-star Kiesza, and a timely remix of the song with Missy Elliott marking her first big musical project after her Super Bowl XLIX appearance. The duo followed up with their debut album, “Skrillex & Diplo Present Jack Ü” which features a huge guest roster including the first appearance from Justin Bieber in over a year, 2 Chainz, AlunaGeorge, Bunji Garlin, and more.
As a solo artist, Diplo has landed production work for Beyoncé, Madonna, Sia, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber and more, and his traveling Mad Decent Block Party and Boat Party cruise ship have become the models for successful independent festivals. Skrillex’s perfectionist attitude and rapid work schedule have earned him sixGrammy Awards and production work on major Hollywood movies like Wreck-It Ralph, Spring Breakers and Transformers: Age of Extinction. From owning their own record labels and touring the world to producing for the biggest artists and movie studios, it has become difficult to avoid seeing their names in headlines or faces on the covers of magazines.
