Holy Ship!!: 12th Planet Admits 2012 "Ultra with Skrillex" Best Show Ever

Just last week, DJ and producer 12th Planet did something very clever. He released his LP The End on 12/12/1212. So many twelves! 

The Smog Records-released LP featured new tracks and ones already out on his 2012 The End Is Near EP, as well as some impressive collaborations. 

This year may be our last on this planet, but it was a helluva trek for 12th Planet who toured Asia and admitted to us that: "Life is awesome." He's been called a mentor by Skrillex, but the L.A. native seems to take it all in stride. We chatted with him about Holy Ship!!, trapstep, and Jim Morrison.
