Skrillex is definitely one of the busiest producers in the game. Somehow he manages to keep up with releasing top notch original tracks like the recent “Waiting” with RL Grime and What So Not, in addition to constant touring and producing acclaimed work with his side project Jack Ü. That’s enough to make anyone’s head spin, but it appears as if Skrillex is already gearing up for his next collab.
A new Snapchat courtesy of Diplo seems to depict Skrillex working in the studio with Dutch producer Boaz van de Beatz. Boaz van de Beatz is an established artist in his own right, having worked with Major Lazer and Jack Ü in the past, alongside numerous others.
The image has led to a whirlwind of speculation that Diplo and Skrillex may be finally following up their smash hit with Jack Ü’s debut record. Anticipation has been high for the super group to deliver new material for a while now, with Diplo stating back in May that new music was on the way. However, after Skrillex announced in the fall that Jack Ü were taking a hiatus from touring, fans have been feeling discouraged for the duo’s future.
The image above should reignite some optimism for 2017 though, so stay tuned for any new updates as they become available.
