Skrillex, one of the most influential and successful electronic music producers of all time, has just announced the highly anticipated release of his new double album, "Don't Get Too Close," set to drop in 2023. The news of the album was first hinted at on Skrillex's Instagram account on January 1st, with the cryptic caption QFF/DGTC 2023 (the meaning of QFF is currently unknown, but DGTC refers to the 2022 tweet "Don't Get Too Close," which is likely the title of the album).
In the days leading up to the official announcement, Skrillex and Fred again revealed the single "Rumble," which they co-produced together. This track has been a staple in their sets and live performances for months, and the duo even released a short clip of the single on Skrillex's YouTube channel.
But "Rumble" is just the beginning. Skrillex has also announced another single, "Way Back," which will be released later and features American rapper Trippie Redd and English singer PinkPantheress.
These are just a few of the many promising collaborations that will appear on the double album. Sonny John Moore, better known by his stage name Skrillex, is an American DJ, singer-songwriter, and producer of electronic music.

He has so far released six studio albums and is renowned for his inventive production approach, which incorporates elements of dubstep, electro house, and other genres.

He has also worked with a variety of musicians, including Diplo, A$AP Rocky, and Justin Bieber. He is regarded by many as one of the leading leaders in the electronic
Skrillex's last album, "Recess," was a game-changer in the music world, reaching the fourth spot on the Billboard 200 chart and earning Skrillex a record-breaking eight Grammy awards in the electronic music category.
He even outperformed some of the biggest names in music, including Ed Sheeran and Maroon 5. The impact of "Recess" and Skrillex's contribution to the evolution of the dubstep genre solidified his place in the history of the Exit Festival, where he played a sold-out show in 2014 and has since become a fan favorite.
