It's always a treat when we're able to get lengthy radio interviews with some of today's hottest talent in dance music. In an interview with New York City based radio station, Hot97, DJs, producers and newly formed tandem Diplo and Skrillex (Jack U) explains the growing sub-culture that is EDM, and how the music genre is taking over the millennial generation and beyond. Even the infamous New York City venue that we frequent, Webster Hall, gets a mention by Wes as being a venue that diversifies its talent and musical genres much more than it used to five years ago.

Among other things, Diplo also talks about him and mega pop-star Katy Perry being an item, if Skrillex has beef with Paris Hilton, and the future of their newly-formed duo, Jack U.

For those of you who can't sit through all 40 minutes of the video right now, here are some key takeaways and fun facts from the HOT 97 interview.

Fun Facts:
· Diplo went to 4 different High Schools and had VW Bus.

· Skrillex dropped out of High School at age 16 to tour.
