Skrillex and Boys Noize will let Dog Blood bark at Movement this weekend
Skrillex is certainly happy being Skrillex -- who wouldn't be given his success in the EDM world, with six Grammy Awards, a chart-topping EP (2011's "Bangarang") and album (last year's "Recess") and a high-profile soundtrack gig on 2013's "Wreck-It-Ralph."
But he's also comfortable sharing the spotlight -- in this case with Dog Blood, his collaborative project with German DJ and producer Boys Noize that will headline Sunday night (May 24) at the Movement Detroit 2015 festival.
"Y'know Skrillex is so visceral and so out front, which I love, but I also wanted to be more reserved," explains the Los Angeles-born Skrillex, 27 (real name Sonny Moore). "Sol it's cool to do Dog Blood and just be a little bit more reserved. it's another outlet where you can step back for a second and just let someone else take over and see what they do and then react to it, and you always come out with great things, some real next-level (stuff). That's what's pretty fun about it."
Dog Blood's out put has been limited so far, with a handful of songs -- "Next Order," "Middle Finger, "Chella Ride," "Shred or Die" -- on a trio of EPs as well as a remix of "Wild For the NIght" for rapper A$AP Rocky. But Skrillex promises that, "We have a lot more music, man. We're going to continue to release stuff and just play when we feel like playing."
And, he adds, the performance aspect is what he finds most intriguing.
"The cool thing about Dog Blood for both of us is you can step back for a second and just let someone take over and see what they would do in a situation, and you always come out with great things," Skrillex says. "You can just capture that electrifying emotion and run with it, which is really fun for us."
