Skrillex is one of the most prominent names in the Dubstep world of music. The 24 year old music producer was born as Sonny John Moore and was raised at Northeast LA in California. Skrillex Dubstep style has been dubbed as a little different from conventional electro house and metalcore forms of music. A section of dubstep enthusiasts and fans of Skrillex defines his style as brostep. Although the first Skrillex dubstep songs were made available for free download by Sonny himself through his MySpace profile, it quickly grabbed the music lovers and he was adjudged as a new face of the genre.
While the Skrillex dubstep effect can be gauged since his days with the post hardcore band From First to Last; it was not until he went on to have a solo career that his unique style gained a larger audience and popularity.
Skrillex had since then formed his own line-up with two bands to take Skrillex dubstep production to newer heights. In 2008, the Skrillex dubstep line-up went on tour and performed all around North America as a part of the AP Tour. Skrillex eventually went on to be featured on the ‘100 Bands You Need To Know’ feature of Alternative Press Magazine.
The Skrillex dubstep sound has already found worthwhile recognition when in 2012 Sonny was nominated for five Grammy awards including Best New Artist, Best Dance Recording, Best Dance/Electronica Album, Best Remixed Recording (Non Classical) and Best Short Form Music Video. Skrillex went on to win three out of the five Grammy awards. Skrillex has been continually experimenting with his style and genre. He is also one of the rare dubstep performers who produce music along with on stage drums, guitars and keyboards. Presently, Skrillex is gearing up for his upcoming Studio album!

- Skrillex Levels Remix
Skrillex Levels Remix
Skrillex Levels Remix is another crazy remix; the original song was by Avicii. When I first heard about this song, I didnt know what direction Skrillex was gonna take this remix too. The original is a good song and I knew it was going to be challenging for Skrillex to pull this remix off; but he did. He gave it a different feel with his crazy dubstep wobbles and synths!

- HP Commercial Song 2012 Nero Promises Skrillex Remix!
This is the Remix of the recent HP Commercial Song in 2012 for the new HP Laptop. The song that was used for the HP Commercial was the Original Promises song by Nero. This Nero Promises Skrillex Remix has one of my favorite drops! I like how it starts up with the vocals, then the nice build up and then the drop that just smashes your ears in! This song is very well arranged and it has that vibe that can always be played anytime! We feel that this song sounds better than the original song and it gives off that nice Dubstep sound!

- Skrillex Cinema
Skrillex Cinema is another track that’s amazing! This remix is way better than the original. I feel like Gary Go’s vocals fits way better than the Benni Benassi version. The up tempo break before the drop is pretty cool, I didn’t see that type of break coming at all. If you don’t like this version better then there’s probably something wrong with your hearing!
