Besides several of his own tracks, the Skrillex-composed album features Atlanta-based rappers Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame, the latter providing an interesting though nearly understated delivery on an explicit track about staying focused in the music industry to provide big dollars for his family.

Skrillex uses Ellie Goulding's breathy dance track, "Lights," as the finale on this decent assemblage. It's not the disc's song with the most pulse, but it brings things to a calming close.

All in all, it's a decent soundtrack and a good sampler of what the spring break set is doing.
