Quick Hit: Skrillex – Bangarang

February 21st, 2012

Posted by Scott Willats

Fresh from his Grammy Awards hat trick, Skrillex is back with some new visuals. The video for “Bangarang” appeared late last week; it’s pretty cool, and seems likely to lend even greater popularity to one of Sonny Moore’s catchier songs. How long till this hits the number 1 spot on bpm:tv’s Hot 20 Dance Chart? The choice is yours.
