The Drop: Diplo & Skrillex’s Jack Ü

Welcome to The Drop! A new segment that will review new music as it drops track by track. And what better way to kick it off then to review the album that EDM fans are talking about everywhere:

Jack Ü by Diplo & Skrillex

1. “Don’t Do Drugs Just Take Some…”
The album starts off with a 2 minute intro featuring synth and a hazy outer-space type feel with voices talking about, you guessed it… drugs.

2. “Beats Knockin” feat. Fly Boi Keno
Probably one of the best songs on the album as it easily has one of the best drops and also features some classic Skrillex sounds in the build up. It really kicks off the album with that up-tempo dance vibe. Sure to be featured in many big festival sets.

3. “Take Ü There” feat. Kiesza
As much as I love “Beats Knockin”, I really wish this song would’ve opened the album. The intro isn’t as in-your-face and it has a nice natural build up that would’ve easily transitioned into the rest of the fast-paced album. Great melodies, fast high-hats, and a big drop make this a really fun track to listen to.

4. “Febreze” feat. 2 Chainz
Just hearing the little bit that I have of 2 Chainz on the radio was enough for me to not like him. But I have to admit, he’s a nice addition to this song. His vocals over a classic dubstep beat will satisfy EDM and rap lovers alike. I’m sure the hook “Yea, I’m the shit I should have Febreze on me” will make its way onto many bros Facebook statuses and Instagram captions come EDC time.

5. “To Ü” feat. AlunaGeorge
To me, this song is more of a filler than anything else. It has its cool moments with the drops and the super fast high-hats but never really gives you that punch that you’re looking for. Good song that’s structured really well but in all honesty if it came on shuffle, I would probably skip it.

6. “Jungle Bae” feat. Bunji Garlin
This one is my personal favorite from the album. It has that Major Lazer-like intro and heavy moombahton drums that I could easily see in a Dillon Francis set. The hook is sure to have the crowd involved and built up with anticipation right before they break into dance as the drop hits you like a brick wall. Great dance track and would make a pleasant addition to anyone’s work out playlist.

7. “Mind” feat. Kai
Really cool, mellow track. Melodic vocals by Kai and even Skrillex himself really compliment the simple but effective drop. A lot of people forget that Skrillex used to be the lead singer for From First to Last. The dude can sing and his nice, easy vocals really add something different to this track.

8. “Holla Out” feat. Snails & Taranchyla
“Holla Out” is more of the “new age” Skrillex. The big drop and intricate sounds mixed in with that sort of reggae flavor make it sound like it could’ve been on Recess. I also like the sound clips at the end. I’m a big fan of artists doing that I think it lets you connect a little more.

9. “Where Are Ü Now” feat. Justin Bieber
Probably my least favorite song on the album. The whole vibe of it kind of kills the momentum of the album. And of course having Bieber on it doesn’t help. If I heard this song out of context I would’ve just thought it was another Bieber song and moved right past it. Not sure what Diplo and Skrillex were thinking with this one.
10. “Take Ü There” feat. Kiesza (Missy Elliott Remix)
Really love this remix. I honestly think they could’ve even done away with the original and just kept this one. Missy’s vocals over the drop really brings the whole song together. Plus Missy just kills it, plain and simple.

 

All in all, I’m really feeling this album. It’s filled with its fair share of festival bangers and mellow jams that will be sure to please EDM fans everywhere. Diplo and Skrillex have great musical chemistry and I really hope they come out with more stuff like this in the future. Be sure to check out Jack Ü  to stream it for free.
