In a year like 2020 we have to take every silver lining we can find and it seems Skrillex has done just that. After 10 years of blazing spotlight attention at the very top of the EDM bass mountain, you get the impression he’s taken the big rave shutdown for what it is, wound the hell down and enjoyed what is likely to have been his first bit of real time off in his career. Good for him. But that’s not to say he hasn’t stayed creative. He wrote and produced ‘Plastic Doll’ for Lady Gaga’s ‘Chromatica’ album, teamed up with Ty Dolla $ign, Kanye West and FKA Twigs for the smoking house/rap fusion ‘Ego Death’, produced ‘Section’ for 18-year-old rap sensation Lil Tecca as well as Juice WRLD’s ‘Man Of The Year’.

If that’s not quite enough, he’s also been teasing fans about the potential follow-up to his 2014-released debut album ‘Recess’ since January and even alluded to there being more than one body of work! In a year like 2020, that’s not a silver lining, that’s a big ol’ pile of gold right there.
