With their new project Jack U, producers Skrillex and Diplo set out to purposefully make "the most annoying sounds ever." Now fans can judge for themselves if they met those lofty aspirations.
The DJ duo debuted a new track "Take U There" at Diplo's Mad Decent Block Party in Brooklyn on Aug. 9. The singer Kiesza joined them live to perform the new tune.
Now the group has released a live recording of the new track on its official Soundcloud. For those who didn't catch the tune's debut in New York, it certainly makes good on those early promises to be party music that's as dumb as a sack of rocks.
The song's rhythms veer from a woodblock clatter that sounds not-unlike "Teach Me How to Dougie," interspersed with more traditional house diva vocals and big EDM drum buildups. Listen to it here.
The duo just performed in the L.A. area at Hard Summer, where they headlined alongside a slate of EDM and hip-hop acts like Tiesto, Disclosure and A$AP Mob. If this track is any indication, their music will be intentionally annoying fans at all the big dance festivals for the rest of the year.
