Diplo And Skrillex Team Up For New EDM Supergroup, Jack U
As EDM continues to permeate the current musical landscape, two of the scene’s leading forces have come together to form a virtual DJ super-group.
Genre-defying producer Diplo has teamed up with dubstep superstar Skrillex to form a new project coined Jack U, which will debut at this summer’s tour of Mad Decent Block Parties. (Mad Decent is, of course, Diplo’s record label, which released Baauer’s monster hit and viral phenomenon, “Harlem Shake.”)
The announcement came via Diplo’s Twitter feed, after fans began publicly inquiring about Jack U when the act was listed as a featured performer on the upcoming Block Parties alongside such artists as Major Lazer, Matt & Kim, Dillon Francis and Riff Raff.
