Vinyl is officially cool if Skrillex is doing it too.
He's been doing it. He pressed Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites on glow in the dark vinyl back when it first dropped.

I've never understood electronic music like this on vinyl, what does it add to the sound? I feel like it would detract from the sound that he tried to accomplish with his music. It just feels so gimmicky when EDM artists do this.
Or some people actually still use vinyl when they play and would like to have these tracks. I don't see how it's gimmicky when the music started around the form of vinyl.

I'm not hating on vinyl. I'm just saying it doesn't seem to be the best format to listen to EDM. Everybody talks about how it's a lot more "raw", which is sort of the exact opposite description I would assume you would want from listening to Skrillex. I'd say the crisper sound you can achieve with a less analogue music format benefits EDM. That's just my opinion though, but I'll admit if I was a bigger fan of Skrillex the collector in me would buy this in a second anyways.
I hear you on that, touche my friend, touche.

Wow that's suitably overpriced as expected... Looks nice though - and I like his music
Overpriced but with the purchase depending on how many are being made it can skyrocket. I remember when he put out Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites on the glow in the dark vinyl. I think they made 250 or 500 of them and they were going for $30 a piece, which for an EP is absolutely ridiculous. But when they sold out I think I saw them going for $250 bucks a piece.
