Skrillex seen in studio with Boys Noize. Are Dog Blood back?
Could 2018 be the year of comebacks? After the Swedish House Mafia reunion at Ultra Music Festival 2018, there are hints that Dog Blood could be back soon as well.
Sonny John Moore, better known as Skrillex has no doubt been one of the most influential and innovative artists of this generation, constantly pushing the barriers of electronic music and building an incredible catalogue of successful releases along the way. Skrillex is also widely known for his project together with Diplo: Jack Ü, where the two were successfully able to merge the worlds of pop with electronic dance music, enabling them to work with artists like AlunaGeorge and Justin Bieber, with their collaboration ‘Where Are Ü Now’ becoming a number 1 hit in many countries.
Before starting Jack Ü, Skrillex had also launched a successful side project together with Boys Noize called Dog Blood back in 2012. The two released an EP with two singles, ‘Next Order’ and ‘Middle Finger’, looking to push the boundaries of the techno genre by seamlessly combining Skrillex’s bass heavy sounds with Boys Noize’s characteristic raw style. The project was a huge success and saw them perform at Ultra Music Festival in 2013, where they debuted a remix for A$AP Rocky‘s ‘Wild For The Night’. After the successful release of the ‘Middle Finger pt.2’ EP and a remix album, Boys Noize took to his instagram to hint at a potential third EP coming. Since then the two have performed at shows sporadically, the latest being at the 2017 Hard Summer Music Festival in Fontana, CA.
Boys Noize got fans excited again through one of his instagram stories, where he shows Skrillex in the studio, leading many to believe that we might finally hear some new Dog Blood music after all these years. Although there is no evidence to confirm this, fans will no doubt be hoping the duo to return with new music and await any official announcements or further hints.
