    lol dirty vibe MV is awful , the song is the best on on his new album though imo. I think his new music isn't as good as his old stuff.

    A man walks into a paint store. The clerk asks him if he needs any help. The man smiles, and replies that no, he already has what he wants. At this, he opens his coat, revealing large amounts of wire and explosives. The clerk shouts, but before he can dive behind the counter--assuming it would have done any good--the bomb is detonated. Wood, metal, fabric, and flesh are violently thrown about the area, along with many colors--cheery pastels, sedate earth tones, and vivid swaths of a gorgeous sunset--that splatter down upon the wreckage, a haphazard menagerie blissfully indifferent to the carnage and debris that has settled beneath a could of smoke. that they've haphazardly decorated. This is to the eyes what Skrillex is to the ears. [3] top kek

    I miss old Skrillex. I'm fine with him doing different stuff, but some of his older tracks are just amazing.
