Skrillex is getting into K-pop by producing for one of its biggest acts.

The Jack U DJ (who's on a roll recently with his Justin Bieber and Diplo chart-toppers) is collaborating with girl group 4Minute for their upcoming single "Hate." The quintet (that includes viral star HyunA, known for co-starring in PSY's "Gangnam Style' video) were snapped in the studio with the dubstep prince earlier this year, but the news was only just confirmed by the group's record label Cube Entertainment on Twitter..

Skrillex isn't entirely new to the K-pop scene. He enlisted two of its biggest rappers—CL of 2NE1 and G-Dragon of BIGBANG—for the explicit banger "Dirty Vibe," off his latest solo album Recess, and is also working with CL on her debut English album. "Hate" will mark his first full-fledged effort into the Korean pop scene.

Last year, 4Minute dropped one of the best singles of the year with the fierce hip hop/EDM concoction "Crazy," that wound up being of the year's most-viewed K-pop videos. Check that out below while you wait for "Hate," which will be revealed alongside the group's full Act.7 EP, out next Monday, February 1.
