Whilst performing at a sold-out Madison Square Garden show alongside Four Tet and Fred again.. – Skrillex has released his second album following Quest For Fire. Don’t Get Too Close is the name of the second one and seems to be a more pop-leaning offering, compared to QFF. Notable features include Bibi Bourelly, Justin Bieber, Kid Cudi, Chief Keef, Swae Lee, Yung Lean, Bladee, PinkPantheress, and more.
It’s incredible to be an electronic music fan at the moment, let alone a Skrillex fan. For the talented, revolutionary artist to release two albums in as many days is something to cherish.
It is clear why the two albums were split up, DGTC showcases a more pop sound, especially thanks to the features. QFF on the other hand includes more experimental and signature Skrillex drops. Skrillex is sure to have multiple sets of fans thanks to his success in commercial and underground worlds, so the offering of two albums perfectly fulfils all sections of the fanbase.
The charismatic DJ and producer gives a beautiful finale to his whirlwind run of releases and performances in NYC this week which included a surprise Valentine’s Day pop up at Good Room, a larger party on Thursday at Le Poisson Rouge, and a massive live set in the middle of Times Square for The Lot Radio on Friday broadcasted from a school bus turned sound system before his final performance on Saturday at MSG which caught the attention of many around the world. Available at the event were bootleg CDs of the album during the announcement that will not be available anywhere else. Don’t Get Too Close comes as Skrillex’s new off kilter personal pop-leaning album where the masterful producer pours every ounce of skill and personality into the songs creating a highly personal and relatable album with small universes built into each song.
