It’s been six years since Skrillex and Boys Noize released music together as Dog Blood. They’re finally back with an energetic new single that’s perfect in every possible way.
The duo spawned two EPs over 2012 and 2013, with tracks including “Next Order,” “Middle Finger,” and the especially savage “Shred Or Die.” Their new one, “Turn Off The Lights,” feels lighter at surface level, but it remains true to what we’ve come to expect of the Dog Blood project.
A classic rave-worthy build, mad drum rhythms, and catchy vocal chops make the new Dog Blood single easily digestible for the average ear — but just wait for that heavy, stuttered breakdown at 2:52. It’s fleeting for sure, but just enough to give Dog Blood diehards exactly what they want.
The duo recently played Buku Music + Arts Festival together, uniting as Dog Blood. See the footage from their high-octane performance here. They played last night at the Brownies & Lemonade show in Miami, and they’ll play again tonight at Ultra Music Festival on the WorldWide stage at 11:30 PM EDT.
“Turn Off The Lights” is out now via OWSLA / Boysnoize Records.
