Skrillex shows off a slew of his best IDs during rowdy EDC Brasil performance [Full Stream]
Anyone that’s ever seen Skrillex play knows that all the energy during the performance originates directly from behind the decks by Sonny himself. The OWSLAnaut broadcasts from hyper-speed with relentless energy, from warehouse gigs to headlining slots at EDC, the international dance icon always brings his A-game. But with so much unreleased Skrillex material being packed away in his extensive arsenal, getting to experience some of his best work means you’ve got to be there live, the moment he cues up another vicious ID. Anyone who was EDC Brazil this weekend would say the same thing, and now you can relive Sonny’s set from the Kinetic Field to pick apart the track list for your favorite cuts.
The hour-long set is littered with IDs, from a blistering edit to Smookie Illson’s “Club Action Bootleg,” a staple in Skrillex live sets, to new material supposedly inspired by Sonny’s recent tour across India. The track list is an hour of unadulterated mayhem with Skrill mixing in everything from Jack Ü cuts to Kanye West, Dillon Francis, Zomboy, and Drake. A lineup of Skrillex’s biggest hits to date also make their way to the set, as the AMA-winning artist sprinkles in a handful of classic Skrillex jams to cap off one of his most high-octane outings of the year. With troves of new material stocked away, and word of a new Jack Ü EP on the way, Skrillex continues his roll, this time stunning Brazil’s Kinetic Field.
