Skrillex (Sonny Moore) [By Nate Davis]

Skrillex (Sonny Moore)
I'd like to start off by saying, Skrillex is not my favorite EDM (Electronic Dance Music) artist. However, the amount of respect I have for Sonny Moore, and the way that he has shaped electronic dance music over the last few years is astonishing. 

Sonny started his music career with the band From First To Last (in 2004). Since then, he dropped his primary rock influence with From First To Last, and adopted a talent for electronic music creation under the alias Skrillex (in 2007). In 2010 he released two EPs (Extended Play - a release with more than 1 single and not enough tracks to be considered an album) My Name is Skrillex EP (Released as a free download in early 2010) & Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites EP (Released on Mou5eTrap Recordings in October 2010). Since that point, Skrillex has been awarded 3 Grammys (nominated for 5), consistently produces top-chart tracks in Dubstep, Drum & Bass, and Electro-House (All sub-genres of EDM), and currently has a video on Youtube (of his Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites) that has almost 100,000,000 views (#87 on the Youtube top 100) -

His music, merchandise, and any other things to meet your "Skrillexy" needs can be found on his website -  - This is Skrillex's official website. You can view all of his music productions, buy merchandise, and find links to his Facebook and Twitter on here.

Speaking of Facebook... - - This is his Facebook. Here you can follow his posts (keep updated on everything he chooses to make known to the public) and view some of his music productions.

Last but not least (My personal favorite) - - This is his Youtube channel. On here, you can view any of Skrillex's music he has produced and an assortment of other videos.
