To explain what it’s like to attend Ultra Music Festival isn’t quite that easy. Sure, those who can’t grasp exactly what “EDM” is just don’t get it. To love house music along with it’s accompanying sub genres, is truly a sort of cult our generation has embraced. Over the course of 3 days, Weekend 1 welcomed well over 50,000 people. In retrospect, that’s a tiny portion of the music lovers around the world. But to us? Nope. It felt as if it was the only type of music surrounding us in our own little heaven.
Skrillex and Boys Noize make a pretty damn good team. The tag team ripped up the Ultra Worldwide tent on Sunday, March 17, as they made their debut at Ultra Music Festival as Dog Blood. The set was killer and it was a treat since they were only on the lineup for the first weekend. Needless to say, festival goers had quite an experience to watch Skrillex drop the bass alongside his other half; Boys Noize who brought his signature beats.
Last week Skrillex posted a teaser video on his Facebook page for a song entitled Next Order. The track came from unknown artist Dog Blood, whose premier EP was scheduled to be released Monday, August 13. Labeled simply as “MIDDLE FINGER ACID TERROR from Boysnoize Records and OWLSA," many were scrambling to figure out just who Dog Blood was. Not soon after, both an official Facebook page and Twitter account associated with the act soon appeared. It didn’t take much time for fans to discover that the Facebook page identified the members of the group as Alex Ridah and Sonny Moore; Boys Noize and Skrillex respectively.
