Recess (Album) Edit
"Recess" is the debut studio album by American electronic music producer Skrillex, released on March 14, 2014 by OWSLA, Big Beat Records, and Atlantic Records. It was recorded between 2013 and 2014 whilst Skrillex was touring around the world.
"Recess" received mixed reviews from music critics. It charted in multiple countries worldwide and became his highest charting release in the United States and the United Kingdom. Rolling Stone later ranked it at number 22 on their 50 Best Albums of 2014 list.
On March 7, 2014, Skrillex took part in an "Ask Me Anything" post on the online forum Reddit. To coincide with this question-and-answer session, his website was changed to redirect to a page featuring a talking alien face, based on the Apple emoji. The face played short samples from album tracks when you clicked it. He released a mobile app, "Alien Ride", on the same day, which features an arcade-style objective where the spaceship has to destroy asteroids. The app displayed a countdown.
Users from r/skrillex were able to access the server that hosted the app and found that the app countdown would lead to "Recess" being available to stream, leading to the album being leaked early. When the countdown reached zero, each track was unlocked and able to stream in 30 minute intervals.
