Skrillex and Diplo team up for new project, Jack U!

Over the last year or so, DJ culture’s reigning men Diplo and Skrillex, have been working together under new alias Jack Ü.

At the recent Mad Decent Block Party in Brooklyn early last month, Diplo invited vocalist Kiesza (of Hideaway fame) on stage to premiere Jack Ü’s debut track Take Ü There. While Kiesza’s breakout hit Hideaway evokes an early ’90s house sound, Take Ü Theretransports the rising Canadian vocalist to the main stage, right alongside her legendary collaborators Diplo & Skrillex.

Early this week, BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe premiered the track on his show and sat down with the super duo to discuss the new project, subsequently sending the blogosphere abuzz.

Skrillex and Diplo will perform individual sets around the country for Stereosonic in Nov/Dec, followed by a special collaborative set as Jack Ü at the “World’s Greatest Arena” aka Madison Square Garden on NYE. Listen to the radio rip of the song below, song starts at about 1min 45seconds
