The album was released via Savoir Faire / SME France on 19 September 2011[1][2][3] and was re-released worldwide on 28 May 2013 through OWSLA. A four-part series of remix EPs were released weekly starting on 7 June 2013, including tracks from their 2012 mixtape Geto Bird.[4]

The A$AP Rocky song "Wild For the Night" on his album LONG.LIVE.A$AP samples Skrillex's "Goin' Down" remix, and both Skrillex and Birdy Nam Nam are credited as featured artists.[8]
