You know you've made it in the music business when #HipHop mogul Kanye West reaches out to you for a collab, and apparently next in line is #Electronic super star Skrillex. The super star broke the news recently in a sit down with the Daily Beast at the HARD Summer Festival in Los Angeles.
“I did some music with Kanye and from what I know, it’s actually going to be the first song on his new album.”
Personally, I think this will be what crosses #HipHop and #Electronic finally. Kanye tends to be quite the trend setter in the Hip Hop universe. It's only a ma...Read More

On January 29, 2012, at the Nokia Theatre in LA, Skrillex took the stage following opening acts Nadastrom, Benga, & Dada Life. The stage, conveniently located in the center of the venue, slowly rotated so that the crowd could get a good view from every angle. The audience was not only entertained by grammy nominated artist Skrillex, but also by Zen Arts Dancers including pole entertainer, Zoraya Judd.
Zen Arts is a traveling group of highly trained cirque performers, dancers, artists, and designers. Along with Zoraya Judd, four other girls brought sexy to the stage in leather and lace. I l...Read More

Nominated for BBC's Sound of 2012, rising #hiphop artist A$AP Rocky, has caught my attention. BBC's Sound of 2012 is an annual poll that recognizes promising new talent. Artist running against A$AP Rocky include, Skrillex, Frank Ocean, Niki & The Dove, and StooShe. In 2003, 50 Cent was awarded, and 2010 Ellie Goulding, both of which have made a promising music career. A$AP has catchy beats, and original lyrics. His songs draw you in with their odd hooks, and voice effects. I definitely have respect for A$AP, because he started out at an 8 year old in...Read More

It's really starting to look like it..
Dubstep artist Skrillex is up for five Grammy nominations, as well as mentor/ DJ superstar Deadmaus5, who is up for three.

The awards "have overlooked EDM artists in the past, like David Guetta and Moby. Skrillex is the face of all EDM at the Grammys."
