Introduction

Warner Music was looking to build hype for Skrillex’s new single “Midnight Hour” under strict confidentiality until the release date

Skrillex is a world-renowned electronic dance music (EDM) producer, and his fans are extremely passionate.

The Challenge

Any information about a new release from Skrillex is highly sought-after, and it can be difficult to build anticipation for a single without giving away too much.

If you reveal too much information about a new single, it can spoil the surprise for fans. However, if you don’t reveal enough information, you may not generate enough excitement. 

This was a delicate balance that goto.game & Warner Music had to carefully navigate when building hype for Skrillex’s new single.

The Solution

Goto.game came up with a creative solution to this problem. We engaged four streamers in ANZ to stream as usual for four days while a “hack” attempted to take over their stream. 

The streamers were instructed to act as if they were being hacked, and they were even given fake instructions to follow. This created a sense of excitement and suspense among the streamers’ viewers, who were eager to see what would happen next.

On the fourth day, the “hack” was revealed to be a promotion for Skrillex’s new single “Midnight Hour.” The single was released shortly after, and it was a huge success.
