Porter Robinson surprised fans at the final day of Second Sky with a guest set from Skrillex.
On the second and final day of Porter Robinson‘s very own Second Sky Music Festival, he shocked fans by announcing a surprise set from a new artist named “DJ Potato.” After a few laughs and cheers, DJ Potato took off his costume and revealed himself to be none other than Skrillex.
Although rumors of his inclusion were circulating throughout the festival grounds, fans were still blown away by the appearance of the eight-time Grammy-winning producer. In order to quell the rumors and make the surprise even more exciting, Skrillex had tried to mislead fans into thinking he was unable to attend Second Sky.
In typical Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore) fashion, he played a diverse mix of tracks from his expansive library as well as two tracks fans believe to be never-before-heard IDs.View the original article to see embedded media.
Skrillex’s appearance at Second Sky carried a special significance considering he signed Porter to his first record deal in 2011 for his debut EP Spitfire, released on Skrillex’s OWSLA label.
Second Sky Music Festival took place June 15th and 16th at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland, California.

Is there room for deadmau5′ brand of trolling in today’s climate of trigger sensitivity?
A recent tweet made by deadmau5 A.K.A. Joel Zimmerman has resulted in more blowback than he likely anticipated. During a more or less routine round of trolling, the Canadian progressive house DJ/producer elicited outrage for statements that many consider homophobic and transphobic.
Zimmerman punctuated a war of words by making a crude joke at the expense of a Twitter follower. The below exchange followed, although the tweets have since been deleted:
The controversial tweet in question reads, “It just illustrates the obvious fucking point here. women don’t posses [sic] penises. you’ll find out when you’re older.”
Although Zimmerman’s remark appears to have come more from a place of lighthearted gamer banter than one of outright bigotry, much of his fan base interpreted it as the latter. “So disappointed to find out deadmau5 is posting transphobic statements about what genitals define a woman,” writer Amanda Jette Knox tweeted. “But not as disappointed as my kids are going to be. Last year, we took our trans daughter to his concert in Montreal for her birthday. She’s been a huge fan.”
Zimmerman tweeted the below apology soon after:
The careers of other electronic music artists who have expressed more explicit homophobic and transphobic views have met untimely fates in recent years. After Lithuanian progressive house artist Ten Walls posted a homophobic Facebook rant in 2015, he was removed from countless festival lineups. Icelandic techno producer Bjarki faced similar cancellations when his label mate Johnny Chrome made insensitive remarks about transgender Brooklyn artist Octo Octa.
At the time of writing, no promoters or other music professionals have issued statements suggesting that they wish to discontinue business relationships with deadmau5.

By Real EDM — 8 months agoThrough a series of cryptic Instagram posts, XS club, under the umbrella of Wynn Nightlife, has been sending the internet into a frenzy. With nothing more than the words, “We Are Home”, excited fans have been speculating Swedish House Mafia‘s return.Aside from a number of shows in Europe, Swedish House Mafia’s presence is more than missed in North America. Of course, they took Ultra Miami 2018 by storm last year when they did a surprise special appearance— and the world was shook! Fans who missed this festival were whacking themselves over their head for weeks.I know, I know, It doesn’t really seem like people are going off of much here, but the text and font speaks volumes. It’s a monochrome look we are all too familiar with lately as it’s been used in many of Swedish House Mafia’s promotional work. Perhaps we’re all jumping the gun on this one, but it also has us jumping up from our chairs!As if they couldn’t tease us enough, three posts have been made so far. Each post with a different date found below the “We Are Home” posts— January 8, 9, and 10. While these are speculative dates for an official announcement, we can only keep a close watch on what promoters have to reveal next. Stay tuned!
