Dirty Vibe

  • This English-language, K-pop-meets-EDM collaboration features the South Korean Pop stars G-Dragon - who is the leader of the boy band Big Bang - and CL from the girl group 2NE1. It isn't the first time G-Dragon has worked with Western stars. He collaborated with Diplo, Baauer, Missy Elliott, Boys Noize and Sky Ferreira on Big Bang's 2013 Coup D'Etat album. CL meanwhile hooked up with will.i.am as a part of 2NE1. The girl group featured on his #willpower LP with the track "Gettin' Dumb."
  • Recess was recorded in cities over the world including Seoul, South Korea. "Everything was spontaneous, as I was traveling anyway and playing shows and touring, rather than over-thinking things," Skrillex told NME. "G-Dragon and I met years ago and said we should do something. It just happened that we were in Seoul one night and Diplo was there too and we made a track."

    "Music should be fun, and an expression of the people who are making it," he continued. "Ten years ago, if you wanted to do that, your manager would have to meet their manager and you'd schedule a time and they'd talk about money and bulls--t. But now you can just make it happen yourselves."
