I hate major labels, so I don’t really want to do anything with major labels.
Sometimes it’s even out of an Artist’s hands to produce more work. In Diplo’s case, Jack U can’t be a thing until he gets everything in the deal right.
In an Q&A session in Sydney attended by InTheMix, Diplo openly discussed the future of he and Skrillex’s joint project, and was very frank about why that project stopped more abruptly than anyone would have wanted:
“Right now I’m just doing a lot of new Major Lazer stuff and Diplo stuff. The thing with Jack Ü is complicated, because of Atlantic. Skrillex is signed to that label and it’s difficult to do anything with that. I hate major labels, so I don’t really want to do anything with major labels. So it’s hard.”
We’d love to see Jack U rock the festivals again, but there just plain can’t be a way to peg a for sure day for that to take place at the moment. While we wait patiently for everything to work out, there are plenty of sets and a plump discography to reminisce on in the meantime.
