When this year’s Mad Decent Block Parties lineup and tour dates were announced Tuesday (April 30), it looked as though Diplo would be pulling double duty, performing both on his own and as part of his dancehall project Major Lazer. Turns out he’s actually doing triple duty.
To anyone not completely familiar with the DJ and EDM worlds, there were quite a few unknown names on the full roster, but one name even had the rave kids scratching their heads: Jack U. As MTV points out, Diplo revealed in a tweet that Jack U is his collaboration with Skrillex. Head below to see his message to fans.
Jack u… Means skrillex+diplo together..

Diplo and Skrillex have already worked together in a professional capacity, launching YouTube channel POTATO along with A-Trak. And just as Diplo has another collaborative side project, so does Skrillex with Dog Blood, his project with Boys Noize.
While the official MDBP lineup doesn’t have Jack U performing until the final show on September 15 in San Diego, there’s already rampant speculation that the duo will make their debut at the first show in Calgary on July 19.
