Funny enough, Skrillex has yet to release a debut album. The shaved side-head king of dubstep (or Brostep) Sonny Moore has released a grip of EPs from the genre-defining Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites to 2012’s breakout Bangarang.
And out of nowhere, we finally have his debut album Recess, which you can stream in a variety of ways. SPIN reports that you should be able to stream the album on iTunes Radio’s “First Play” feature, but that seems to be down right now. However there is this fan-gathered SoundCloud mix, which you can listen to for the moment below.
There’s another option too if you want to stream the album through Skrillex’s app called Alien Ride, which also features the same cover art as Recess.
Recess features a whole grip of guests, from UK jungle progenitors Ragga Twins, who guest on the amazingly titled song “All Is Fair in Love and Brostep”) all the way up to Chance the Rapper, who collaborates on the track “Coast is Clear”. Other EDM heavyweights stepping on the scales include Diplo, Kill The Noise, Fatman Scoop, and Alvin Risk. The album also features K-Pop megastar G-Dragon and British singer-songwriter Kid Harpoon.
This announcement comes on the heels of the announcement of Skrillex’s Mothership Tour which annihilates stages all around North America this summer.
Recess is officially out on March 18 via OWSLA/Big Beat/Atlantic. You can preorder the album now on iTunes.
