Relive Skrillex’s two-hour set from FORM Arcosanti [Watch]
Did that remix of Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE” that Skrillex dropped in the desert a few weeks ago really get you going? The official version, if we ever get to hear it, already boasts the potential to break the internet, and luckily, there’s plenty more where that came from. In fact, along with that new Kung Fu Kenny flip, now you can relive Skrillex’s entire two-hour set from this year’s FORM. Stationed at the Canyon Stage, illuminating a massive circular clearing at the bottom of a gulch, the OWSLA head honcho played well into the early hours of Sunday morning, weaving together a one-of-a-kind set stitched together with a heavy rap-leaning tracklist and a grip of snarling special edits.
Without even mentioning the electronic artists Skrillex has stocking his personal crate, Skrillex packs cuts from Future, Chance The Rapper, Rick Ross, Rihanna, Drake and yes, even Daddy Yankee, into two hours of blistering bass, hyped house, and hip-hop. Call it bold, but going from Whitney Houston’s iconic belt straight into a Soulja Boy queue takes real stones. Somehow it all lands together as your quintessential Skrillex set, though it maintains its uniquely-tailored format, different from Sonny’s typical festival fare.
Somewhere between a massive house party set and a full-blown festival performance, watch Skrillex chop it up with his favorite records out in the beneath Arcosanti in the middle of the Arizona desert.
UPDATE: Skrillex’s FORM set has been removed from YouTube. Should an official stream arise, Dancing Astronaut will publish it promptly.
