You know that one annoying friend of yours who always insists that dubstep “just sounds like robots farting”? Our man Skrillex is apparently busy making the opposite come true, telling Billboard that he’s working on sound design for the latest Transformers sequel, among many other projects.
In addition to crafting “the craziest Skrillex sounds I could ever make” for the next Transformers flick (which we can assume is whatever comes after this summer’s Age of Extinction), Sonny also says he’s busy with more Diplo collaborations for their Jack U project. Confirming your hater friend’s worst fears, Skrillex tells Billboard: “It’s just a lot of fun for [Diplo] and I to get in the studio and make jokes and just really try to come up with the most annoying sounds ever. What we try to do is make the stupidest thing ever and make it actually work–that’s our only thing.”
And just because we already received a massive dose of new music from Skrilly in the form of his debut LP Recess earlier this year, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t expect more in the near future. Doubling down on previous statements, Skrillex admits: “In the electronic world, it’s not as necessary to just release albums. So even though I just put this record out, I’m going to sprinkle in some singles and mini-EPs throughout the year.”
While we wait for new tunes to surface, be sure to catch Skrillex on his massive Mothership Tour, which touches down across North America all summer long.
