VERSUS was our humble weekly event @ The Central in Santa Monica, CA over the past 2 years. We’re sad to have it come to an end, but we sent it off proper with a biblical b2b set from Skrillex x Congorock x Crookers x 12th Planet, along with Doorly and our very own Bones. We thank everyone for all the memories, never forget what we’ve built.
This Friday, GDD™ fav, Congorock, will be headlining CONTROL at the Avalon in Hollywood, so we’ve teamed up with him to give away 5 pairs of tickets to the show along with 5 brand new Congorock Ts, modeled by Rocco in the image above.
After Rocco joined in on the unbelievable B2B2B2B set last week along with Skrillex, Crookers, and 12th Planet at our final VERSUS event, we’ve been looking forward to hearing some of the unreleased jams that he laid down to the intimate crowd on a big scale — the Avalon scale.
Enter to win via the Punchtab application below, and make sure to share on social media channels for a higher chance to win! The 5 winners will be notified by email on Friday at 5PM. Continue Reading

The not-so-secret collaborative effort between Skrillex and Boys Noize, Dog Blood, was announced only a few months ago to large applaud. Always cool when two real ground-breakers of an industry come together to create something new, especially when they call it something as cool as DOG BLOOD.
Their new music video for the single “New Order” is just as twisted and chaotic as the track itself, featuring a dude tripping so hard he becomes a literal and figurative space cadet (following with the theme of the EP artwork…).

What does Alex Metric, Aeroplane, and UZ have in common? The next OWSLA release – Ammunition Pt. 2
The London-based Alex Metric saw a massive response earlier in the year for his chord-stabbing anthem ‘Rave Weapon’, gaining widespread support and the attention of Skrillex and his collective label OWSLA. They’ve teamed up together to release the remix EP, boasting three stunning remixes from the Italo maestro Aeroplane, the mysterious UZ, and Dirtybird newcomer Mark Starr – you couldn’t ask for a better trifecta of difference.
*The EP is due out December 3rd worldwide, and also features the original mix plus (2) new originals ‘Prophecies’ and ‘Motion Study’. Check them all out below!

Webster Hall continues to be one of my favorite venues in New York City and this past Friday was no exception. After getting word that there would be a secret guest I made my way over to the historic club and hoped for an interesting night. With a line-up consisting of Crizzly and Alvin Risk and armed with the knowledge that Skrillex was in town, I prayed that I would finally get to witness a rare surprise Skrillex set like other GDD writers had seen before me.
