Go backstage with Jack Ü in this epic HARD Summer recap

Skrillex and Diplo’s world-dominating, chart-savvy team-up with Justin Bieber is still doing damage around the world, landing the producer duo their first US top ten hit, and putting Bieber back in the top ten for the first time in two years.

Much to the surprise of many, Jack Ü debuted the live performance of Where Are Ü Now with Bieber as part of their guest-studded closing performance at Ultra Miami in March this year; and at HARD Summer in LA earlier this month they did it all again, bringing Bieber and a team of dancers out to perform the ear-worm hit.

That performance has now been given the cinematic after movie treatment by a pair of professional directors – Adam Villasenor and Reza Ghassemi – with a whole lot of backstage practice footage intercut with hype-worthy scenes from the mainstage. Click through below to see what goes down backstage before a Jack Ü show, including Diplo practicing kick-ups and Skrillex getting hyped (and scroll down below the video to check out all the photos from HARD Summer 2015).

Next up, Jack Ü are taking their show on the road to Amnesia in Ibiza and Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, before hitting up Diplo’s four-day Mad Decent Boat Party cruise in Miami; more details at the Facebook page. [Photo by Jas Davis]
