Skrillex - Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites

Feel the bass hitting hard, feel your body wanting to move to said beat, and just let it all out. Boy do I love mixing it up with a little dance music every now and again. That's why I started doing Techno Tuesday, and that's why I hope you guys enjoy listening to some of the dance music too. And today we profile Skrillex, aka Sonny Moore born in 1988 in Los Angeles. He was the former frontman of a band called 'From First To Last' - but ended up leaving that band in 2007. Like many other solo artists, he got his start by creating a Myspace page and profiling his DJ work. After months of just putting stuff on Myspace, he went on tour with a full band. Skrillex made his cd's available for purchase at the show, but only 30 per show and they were beautifly packaged in baby blue envelopes. They each contained a unique drawing by himself or a bandmate. Just recently (April of this year) Skrillex posted to his Facebook page that the new album and his laptops were stolen. He was in Italy for a show and they were taken from his Milan hotel room. He spent a lot of time after that being mad and "pulling his hair out" but is now back focusing on the music. In May he's been touring Australia, and getting really solid feeback down under. Although this is just an extended play, it's still pretty rockin'. Beat wise, one of the better dance albums I've heard in a while. I think this guy has MAJOR potential. I'm hoping the new album comes out soon, as I really like this style. Until then, enjoy the EP!
