(Oh—it's on Spotify, too. It's everywhere.)

Jack Ü features appearances from stars like Justin BieberMissy Elliott and 2 Chainz, who opens his cut with, "Yeah, I'm the shit / Yeah, yeah I'm the shit / I should have Febreze on me." Along the way, you'll also hear hot spots from AlunaGeorge, Kiesza, Fly Boi Keno, Bunji Garlin, Kai and more.

Skrill 'n' Dip kicked off what was supposed to be a 24-hour no-sleep DJ set on Thursday afternoon. It was streaming online and you should've been able to tune in rightnow, but, according to Diplo, it got shut down by the cops 18 hours in. BOOOO!! (Nonetheless: impressive endurance, dudes.)
