Jack Ü made a surprise guest appearance at the halftime show of the Clippers/Rockets game that took place at the Staples Center in L.A. last night that shook the rafters of the arena. Skrillex and Diplo performed a medley of their most popular releases through the Jack Ü project, and while their incorporation of a certain Soulja Boy sample may have been what some might call overzealous, the energy that they brought to the occasion was hard to deny.
Between Skrillex’s duet with Kai during “Mind” and Fly Boi Keno’s appearance during “Beats Knockin,” the duo’s eight minutes on the court didn’t see a single dull moment. Combine that with a dozen or so dancers and a terrier riding around in a tiny car, and you have all the makings of a full-fledged entertainment spectacle.
While neither artist has released their best material under the Jack Ü brand, stunts like their performance at the Clippers/Rockets game help maintain a life-of-the-party image that has made them an iconic part of the EDM movement.
