Today, November 6th, lucky fans of Grammy-winning producer Skrillex have the opportunity to pre-order the most exclusive and valuable collection of his work to date, set to be officially released in early December on Big Beat/OWSLA. The highly-anticipated vinyl box set includes Skrillex's three groundbreaking EPs, including the Best Dance/Electronica Album of 2012 Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites. The EPs, housed in a custom-made hard-shell acrylic case adorned with a die cut Skrillex logo on the front, contain 18 tracks. For superb quality in sound, each EP is pressed on heavyweight 180-gram audiophile vinyl and meticulously mastered by renowned engineer Bernie Grundman.
Available for a limited time only, these sharply designed sets also include an unique PIN card that allows download of all the tracks plus seven bonus remixes by the likes of Kaskade, Phonat, and Zedd, not included on the vinyl. Hardcore fans will be pleased that, in addition to the sounds, exclusive visuals come with the box set: a 12-page photo booklet of candid and behind-the-scenes images. All of these goodies are enclosed in three specially designed record jackets with poly-lined inner sleeves that rest inside a matte black drawer. For those who miss this fleeting opportunity, the individual EPs will also be available at participating independent retailers on November 23rd as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday event.
Also on Tuesday, Skrillex is pairing the news with the release of arguably his most intense visual to date, the official clip for his collaborative track with The Doors, "Breakn' A Sweat", directed by award-winning music video director duo, Radical Friend. The clip, a tremendous achievement of digital animation, is a race against time on land and sea. As the protagonists initially appear to be engaging in run-on-the mill maritime skullduggery, the camera zooms out to show an emotional panorama of backstory and love in jeopardy. It's climactic ending is open to interpretation, but certain moral inferences are only the tip of the iceberg.
