Skrillex & Diplo Present Jack Ü was the debut studio album by American electronic duo Jack Ü., composed of Skrillex and Diplo.

Background:[]

The first track to emerge from the duo was "Take Ü There" featuring Canadian musician Kiesza. In an interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane LoweSkrillex explained that the making of this song had a unique process: He and Diplo were set to play a show in Ibiza when they saw Canadian pop singer Kiesza perform ahead of them. Impressed with her singing, they asked her to do the vocals for a song. They recorded her in their hotel room and finished the song in one night. During a set at Camp Question Mark of the Burning Man festival (one of eight different sets they played over the course of the festival), the duo played "Take Ü There" along with an unreleased track titled "To Ü", of the electro and future bass genres, featuring vocals from AlunaGeorge. "Beat Steady Knockin'", which features vocals by New Orleans bounce artists Fly Boi Keno, was also played. It was later re-titled "Beats Knockin'" for the album's release.

In early 2015, Jack Ü played numerous unreleased tracks in a two-hour takeover mix on BBC Radio 1Xtra. Tracks played included Febreze (Ft. 2 Chainz), Jungle Bae (Ft. Bunji Garlin), Cumbia (Ft. Maluca) and a new collaboration with Snails entitled Holla Out (Ft. Taranchyla). Febreze, Jungle Bae, & Holla Out were all included on the album, while Cumbia (Ft. Maluca) was excluded from the album. Skrillex has also mentioned that Jack U has "got five songs that we made that aren't even released, and we'll end up releasing in 2014". On February 27, 2015, Skrillex and Diplo released the album on iTunes. Alongside the previously revealed six tracks.
