Skrillex is releasing a joint LP with rapper RiFF RaFF, so that’s nice.

Signed to Diplo’s Mad Decent label and with a solo long player titled ‘Neon Icon’ on the way, RiFF RaFF, aka Texan MC Jody Christian, inadvertently said to MTV Australia: “Me and Skrillex have an album coming out. I mean we have a song coming out. Oh shit. That’s what I do when I speak too soon. I can’t tell you more than that. MTV exclusive!”

Asked what Skrillex is like as a collaborator, he added: “Real easy. He’s one of the most creative people I know, so when we go in there we just put together songs easy. It’s nothing”.

Speaking of Skrillex, he’s added bass DJ Rusko to the bank of artists on his OWSLA label. Rusko will release a new EP, ‘Lift Me Up’, via OWSLA on 2 Jul.
