It’s been a while since the last time we saw Skrillex and Boys Noize taking over a festival stage. In fact, we have to go all the way back to the 2017 edition of the Hard Day Of The Dead to see them perform as Dog Blood. Recently, the numerous rumours pointing towards a possible reunion were confirmed when the duo was announced at this year’s Buku Music Festival, taking place in March. Dog Blood will be headlining the second and last day of the event along with other big names like Griz, Louis the Child and A$AP Rocky.
However, it is the buzz around their music that makes this so special. At their last set at HDOTD, even with a mind-blowing set, they did not play any new music. Now, things may be different. These last few months, it has been pretty frequent to see the guys coming together to work in the studio. This time, Boys Noize posted about the Dog Blood studio session on Instagram, showing us how they played around with an analogue synth. It’s not completely clear what they’re planning but the studio sessions alone are putting dubstep fans around the world on the edge of their seats.
Even though nothing is officially confirmed in terms of new music, this is a very positive and encouraging indicator that new material is on its way. Anyway, we’ll still have to wait a couple of months to find out what they’re going to come up with and how these two magicians are going to surprise us. Anyone fortunate enough to attend Buku Music Festival is certainly going to enjoy a unique experience.
