Fans worldwide were delighted last week when on March 7th, Skrillex delivered a mysterious app featuring a countdown clock + a retro alien game via his official site. Last night, tracks began to mysteriously unlock every 30 minutes to reveal a new full-length album by the 6-time Grammy winning artist. The full album is streaming on iTunes via “First Play” for one week & the release is worldwide March 18th.
Recess was conceived + recorded in Los Angeles, Seattle, Seoul, London, Stockholm, San Francisco & Brooklyn with guests like Ragga Twins, Chance The Rapper, Diplo, Passion Pit vocalist Michael Angelakos, OWSLA stars Kill The Noise, Alvin Risk + up-comers Milo & Otis to name just a handful. The record sees Skrillex delivering on his promise as a fully-fledged musician, taking the listener by the wrist for a celestial reconciliation with innocence, escape, passion, & love while pulling from every imaginable influence within & outside of electronic music.
