New visual from his Recess surprise release, Skrillex releases nay a song, but more a story via his music video collab with the Ragga Twins. If George Lucas was to be of Jamaican origin and into EDM music, this would be his offspring. In a ruin riddled setting that portrays a post-apocalyptic world (and perhaps a common day Detroit), we find the cast in the midst of a intense, quick paced duel, with their soundtrack being Skrillex’s development. The video has a “Welcome To Jamrock” feel until a member of one of the affiliations unveils a lightsaber and commences to remind us of a Star Wars Episode 1 Qui-Gon Jinn versus Darth Maul scenario, as the intensive manner increases as the video crescendo’s to its final futuristic climax. EDM meets reggae meets Star Wars. Brilliant.
