Sonny “Skrillex” Moore threw down his first Essential Mix for the BBC in 2011. Now he's back with another one inspired by the Sonar Festival, which he played last week in Barcelona.

It opens with a demo by Dog Blood, his new project with Boys Noize (who's featured as a solo artist later in the mix). There are also tracks by Disclosure, Millions Like Us, A$AP Rocky, Blood Diamonds, Blawan, Destructo, and many more. The two-hours-long mix includes several Skrillex jams, too

It turns out Skrillex wasn't featured on Kanye West's new album, 'Yeezus,' but the DJ/producer has enough happening to keep him busy. He's rumored to be working with RiFF RaFF on the rapper's upcoming 'Neon Icon' album. And he's teamed up with Diplo for a new project called Jack U, which will perform at the Mad Decent Block Party in San Diego on September 15.

Keep an eye on the POTATO YouTube channel Skrillex, Diplo and A-Trak launched for new music and videos.
