Our top 20 tracks from Skrillex in celebration of his birthday
Skrillex is undoubtedly one of the biggest game-changers in the electronic music scene. After releasing his ‘Gypsyhook EP’ in 2009 under his real name Sonny, the superstar known as Skrillex was born. With his self-released extended play ‘My Name is Skrillex’, the Los-Angeles based producer took the dubstep genre to entirely new heights and caught the attention of many people. Ever since this release on Myspace in 2010, Skrillex has released several other EP’s and singles that eventually led to his debut studio album ‘Recess’ in 2014.
Throughout his career, Skrillex has essentially done it all from winning six Grammy awards to headlining some of the world’s biggest festivals. He has also garnered a lot of success alongside Diplo, who together create one of dance music’s most formidable duos Jack Ü. With their hit “Where Are Ü Now” featuring Justin Bieber, the duo was able to win Collaboration of the Year award during last year’s American Music Awards. In addition, the track is currently nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording and Jack Ü’s album is nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album. With this long list of accolades under his belt, Skrillex’s career is nothing short of impressive and now that 2016 has begun, Skrillex looks to continue his successful run as one of the industry’s top producers and DJ’s.
