Listen to Jack U’s Set from Halftime of the LA Clippers Game
On May 10, the Los Angeles and Houston Rockets played game four of their best of seven game series during the 2015 NBA Playoffs. The game, which took place at Los Angeles' Staples Center, ended in a 128-95 victory for the hometown squad. However, that wasn't the only reason that the crowd went home happy. They were also treated to a surprise Jack U performance from Skrillex and Diplo during half time of the game.
Together, they crammed several songs from the superduo's debut album into a mini-mix under eight minutes. They even threw in a Jack U version of the famous arena anthem “We Will Rock You.” Taking part in the live show were special guest appearances from the Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack U collaborators Kai (from the track “Mind”) and Fly Boi Keno (“Beats Knockin”). They were also joined by “Left Shark” (one of those famous sharks from Katy Perry‘s Super Bowl Half Time show) and "Dinky" (the dog that rides around in a miniature car). You can listen to the mix from the halftime show above.
This is a true testament to how immensely popular the superduo have become. They have transcended just the EDM scene, even grabbing the spotlight during the NBA Playoffs. What started out as a premiere performance of Jack U at the 2013 Mad Decent Block Party has now become a project that has seen the duo collaborate with a variety of stars outside of the dance music world, including Justin Bieber, Missy Elliott and 2 Chainz to name a few. Seemingly, this performance was just another step in their quest for domination of the music world. Watch for them to continue to take their collaborative project to new heights.
