If the name Innerpartysystem doesn't ring a bell, then it's highly unlikely you're familiar with former member Kris Barman, now known as Wuki. Since the electro-rock group announced their hiatus back in 2011, Wuki has been tinkering with the electronic music production that made songs like Innerpartysystem's 'Don't Stop' vastly popular, and transforming them into a unique blend of booty shaking break-beats with clever hints of electro sprinkled in for good measure. After a steady stream of bootlegs, remixes, and iintermittent releases on Teenage Riot, Warpath, and Sex Cult, Wuki made his OWSLA debut January 7th with his new Framework EP.
Although we never saw this colloboration of masters coming, Skrillex and Boys Noise make up the duo Dog Blood, and as such, they have been dropping some fire tracks. This interview was filmed a little time before the release of their last EP Middle Finger Part 2 - which was utterly epic. They discuss they came together to create music and what inspires them as producers. Check out the video interview above.

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.
