Diplo And Skrillex Have A Mixtape On The Way

First single, 'Take You There,' features Kiesza and could stream as early as this week.

Diplo made an important announcement during his AMA on Reddit Tuesday: A mixtape is officially on the way from Jack U, his side project with Skrillex.

From the moment Diplo first revealed the super-group, there’s been high demand from fans for any performances or releases from the duo, but so far those have been few and far between. But Skrillex and Diplo have both been making the festival rounds this summer, creating a lot of buzz for their performance as Jack U at Ultra Music Festival in March 2015; another show is slated for this weekend at HARD Fest. Still, fans have been hungry for more music.

Now we know the first release from Wes and Sonny will come soon, and in mixtape form. The first single, “Take You There,” might stream as early as this week, featuring the vocals of our new favorite songstress, Kiesza. A fan captured a sneak peek of the track at a Diplo performance in Paris, and it’s everything we wanted it to be.

Meanwhile, Diplo has been having a busy summer. He just released his album, Random White Dude Be Everywhere, and is about to start his annual summer tour across the country, the Mad Decent Block Party. Beyond his constant touring and music production, Diplo has also been doing some very mysterious work with Madonna, so we also have that to look out for.
