Um, So Skrillex, Diplo, and A-Trak Made A YouTube Channel?By Daniel Dorsa
During my morning Internet routine, I went YouTube binging on hip-hop videos (because there's really no better way to start your day) and came across Skrillex, Diplo, and A-Trak's new YouTube channel, Potato (yes, Potato). Teaming up with IconicTV, the three all star producers are recalling some of the early days of MTV with original music-related programming. The first episode of their series Bang! takes on an educational tone as they delve into the history of Detroit techno with Kevin Saunderson, Sam Fotias, and Boys Noize. Watch the first episode of Bang! above and see for yourself.
