It’s been four long years since Skrillex and Boys Noize unleashed their acid house assault on the world under the Dog Blood moniker. As quickly as Sonny Moore and Alex Ridha kicked their project into high-gear, the super group slipped back into radio silence as Skrillex’s debut solo album landed and ensuing Jack Ü began to pick up in early 2014. Now, Gary Richards and company have brought the unholy pairing back together for their only show of 2017 at this year’s HARD Summer 10 year anniversary. Most intriguingly, Dog Blood is promising to return in rare form with what could be new material in the chamber.
In an Instagram post from Dog Blood yesterday, the OWSLA and BNR head honchos are shown huddled over CDJs and their laptops, captioned with, “Preparing some fresh…” The photo appears to be taken during Dog Blood’s short but sweet heyday, so it is difficult to tell if the duo are actually together working on their set, or if the post alludes to fresh new collaboration efforts currently underway.
Dog Blood’s lone performance of the year will place Moore and Ridha on the same stage that effectively launched their project some years ago. HARD Summer has evolved quite considerably since then, and we’re betting that once Dog Blood assume their headlining slot on HARD’s second day, they’ll reveal some impressive changes too.
