No ill will behind this, but I just can’t imagine too many vinyl collecting Skrillex fans in the world of EDM culture. I suppose there are a few, but definitely not a gaggle. Although that might not matter much; I’m personally not the biggest fan, but here I am wanting a copy for myself. If you do too, as of today you can pre-order the collection of his work, but you’ll have to hold tight until early December for release. The vinyl box set includes three 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. Also included is a unique PIN card that allows you to download of all the tracks plus seven bonus remixes by the likes of Kaskade, Phonat, and Zedd, which are not included on the vinyl. And if you’re a hardcore crazy fan, you will be pleased to know 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. BTW, each EP is pressed on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl and mastered by renowned engineer Bernie Grundman.
If the box set isn’t for you, the individual EPs will also be available at participating independent retailers on November 23rd as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday event.
And here’s the official clip for his collaborative track with The Doors, “Breakn' A Sweat,” directed by award-winning music video director duo, Radical Friend.
