Skrillex, purveyor of the fine musical
art of dubstep, is promoting his first and very unexpected
full-length album, Recess, in a novel way. Way ahead of Easter, he
planted his new tunes as easter eggs into the retro "asteroid"
shooter Alien Ride, which, surprisingly, doesn't feature scary
monsters or very nice sprites. Regardless, playing through the game and busting
high-scores unlocks 11 new music tracks for streaming, and an option
to pre-order a download of the album is presented in the end.
Skrillex’s full-length debut, out
March 18 on OWSLA, features collaborations with Chance The Rapper,
Diplo, Niki & The Dove, Michael Angelakos, and K-Pop stars
G-Dragon and CL. Meanwhile, the free Alien ride app is available from
