Diplo and Skrillex team up to form Jack U, set to play at this summer’s Mad Decent Block Party
Back when Skrillex, Diplo and A-Trak were teasing “Potato Will Eat You,” many speculated that their cryptic messages were hinting at a new supergroup being formed. “Potato” turned out to be a YouTube video channel that houses content from three of EDM’s most outspoken icons, leaving many satisfied but still mildly disappointed. Now it appears that two of the three are forming a collaboration for the record books as the Skrillex/Diplo duo Jack U. The name Jack U first appeared yesterday on Mad Decent’s Block Party lineup – an act that could have been easily glossed over as one of Mad Decent’s many yet-unknown talents. Strangely enough it has since been revealed as much more monumental than that with Diplo ditching any convoluted teasing and getting right to the point on Twitter yesterday.
Jack u… Means skrillex+diplo together..

We haven’t heard anything out of the newly formed collaboration yet but with two of dance music’s greatest tastemakers working together the results should be nothing short of extraordinary.
