Biography

Skrillex is the name of a famous music artist originally known as Sony John Moore. Sonny was born in 1988 in Los Angeles, California. In 2004, Sonny joined a post-hardcore band called “From First to Last” and became their lead singer, working with the band on two studio albums.

In 2008, he left the band to pursue a music career as a solo artist focused on dancefloor electronic music and this is how Skrillex was born. He worked as a DJ/producer/songwriter, and in 2009, he did two successful remixes of famous hits from Snoop Dogg and Lady Gaga. These two songs gave him traction and, in 2010, he self-released his first EP titled “My Name Is Skrillex”.

His unique approach to electronic music gave birth to a new genre called dubstep, and in 2010, he signed for the Mau5trap label for which he released “Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites”, his second EP. He won many Grammy awards and made dubstep one of the most popular music genres in the mainstream for several years with many hits, videos, collaborations, and gigs. Get tickets for his show today.
