Listen: Skrillex and Boys Noize’s project Dog Blood drops first EP
Last week, we posted a mysterious teaser for a track attributed to the previously unheard of “Dog Blood”. While the 1:43 video came with little information about who or what Dog Blood is, with both Boys Noize and Skrillex linking to the teaser on Facebook – and the track set to be released on August 13 through Boysnoize Records and OWSLA – it didn’t take long to put two and two together and figure that Dog Blood must be a new collaboration between tastemakers Alex Ridha and Sonny Moore.
Today, August 13 arrived and Dog Blood’s debut EP dropped. Up for sale on Beatport, the Middle Finger EP is being released through Boysnoize Records – no mention of Skrillex’s label OWSLA right now. The EP is made up of a full length version of last week’s teaser Next Order as well as title track Middle Finger, and both have been slapped with a techno label (guess Beatport’s yet to add “MIDDLE FINGER ACID TERROR” to its list of fast-rising genres).
We’re still waiting for either Boys Noize or Skrillex to definitively confirm that Dog Blood is a collaboration between the pair, but at present there’s nothing to suggest otherwise. At any rate, we can definitely hear a bit of them both in Middle Finger and Next Order. Agree?
