A Very Skrillex Christmas

Published on December 25th, 2010

When it comes to an artist like Sonny Moore, also now known as Skrillex, it is especially interesting to see his progression as a musician. Moore started very young – forming a street punk band at 13. After a couple other smaller projects he joined From First to Last, where he is very well known among pop punk and post hardcore enthusiasts. There is no doubt that you can see the influence that his background in music has had on his more recent projects through the interesting vocal sampling and melodies. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of Sonny Moore’s earlier stuff, but then again the pop punk and post hardcore thing isn’t for everyone.

Since 2007 he has been hard at work on his solo career. As Sonny Moore toured North America with All Time Low, The Rocket Summer, the Matches, and Forever the Sickest Kids. On April 7th, 2009, he released his first digital EP, Gypsyhook. This is the first I’ve seen as evidence of Sonny’s talent as a pop-house producer. The EP has 3 songs and several remixes from some big names in electro.

The name Skrillex came from Sonny Moore’s old AIM screen name – which he used to have tattooed on his bottom lip. He began DJing under this new alias in 2008 in and around Los Angeles. After some tribulation over the Street Fighter samples used in his first track, My Name Is Skrillex, he released it for free on the internet on June 7th 2010.

Since then, his career and projects have only gone up. He did several remixes for the likes of Lady Gaga and the Black Eyed Peas, and then, after being introduced to Deadmau5 through their mutual friend Tommy Lee, he released Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites on the Mau5trap label. With a hard compilation of intense melodic synths and dirty dubstep bass, Skrillex has taken dance music to another level. He has gone on to collaborate with other big names like Noisia, 12th Planet, and Bare Noize. He has ushered in a new intensity and energy to both electro and dubstep, with the first dubstep track ever to hit #1 on Beatport.com. I can’t say I love all of it, but this guy has a ton of talent, and is doing things no one has heard before. Dig in.

    I laugh every time I read someone say that Skrillex sold out on his new cd Bangarang. This kid is bending all music and blending all styles to make a brand new style. The name of this new style is MUSIC! Look we don’t love or even like every single track a musician puts on an album. I myself only have 2 albums I can listen to from start to finish, Slipknot 2.0 and Beatles Abby Road. My point….. everyone who thinks they are music savants, no nothing! If they fail to recognize that if it makes you angry, happy, cry, dance, become artistic or makes you stop dead in your tracks and say to yourself “what the hell was that” then they fail to see that music is not the ritualistic program we must follow every day to be “successful”! Music is our free mind, free spirit and freedom from the day to day program. I personally love to watch music evolve, and if that evolution includes a 20 something kid living his dream by making sounds that blend into music and become popular because he plays whatever makes his whole body want to explode with excitement over something he just created, then I hope there are a lot more “sell outs” like him in our future!
