It appears Skrillex is enjoying the collaborative aspect of forming new groups with creative producers as he formally enters a new one with Diplo called Jack U:

So far there is little information to be had besides Diplo's tweet declaring the new collaboration. But if it is anything like Skrillex's association with Boys Noize with Dog Blood, we may be hearing some fresh tunes out of the OWSLA and Mad Decent bosses. I've been waiting to hear something out of these two ever since they toured together across Canada last year for the Full Flex Express Tour, but I was disappointed to see nothing materialize. But now I can finally get excited again as these two monster producers have laid the fertile ground for possible track collaborations in the near future. One can hope right?

So far Jack U is slated to play only at the San Diego Mad Decent Block Party (MDBP) but I expect this new super duo to be added to more MDBP lineups soon. Like in Toronto perhaps? So far Skrillex has yet to be booked in Toronto this summer and like I said in a previous post, the MDBP event in Toronto could use at least one more major addition to the lineup. We'll see.
