Skrillex Drops Ferocious "Ragga Bomb" Video

Skrillex has released the first video from Recess, and it’s a ferocious, frightening and totally captivating work of hard-hitting art.

A blazing urban wasteland is the perfect setting for the infernal beat of “Ragga Bomb” and the fire spit by UK jungle duo Ragga Twins. As we’re walked through the rubble, every move has a sinister vibe to it, whether school kids or dreadlocked dance troupes are moving to the beat. Something’s in the air, and it's up to no good. 

The tension eventually comes to a head in an epic, neon-tube-light-as-lightsaber battle complete with explosions and destruction all over the joint. In short, it’s an EDM action movie chock full of chaos from the future, and we’re not entirely sure it’s got a happy ending.

Ragga Twins aren’t the only guests gracing Skrillex’s debut LP: DiploChance The Rapper, Niki & the Dove, Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos and others all came to play during Recess, but Ragga Twins are the only act to make two appearances on the record, the first being opener “All Is Fair In Love And Brostep.”

Skrillex recently kicked off his tour in support of his latest effort at SXSW, and will continue the trek into the summer with stops at Governors Ball and Bonnaroo in June.
