Sonny Moore, otherwise known as Skrillex, is an electronic music producer based in Los Angeles.
We’ve been following him from early in his career and tend to dig more of the EDM stuff from him, less into the hardcore stuff he’s dabbled in from time to time. Ultimately we respect him fully as a musician and tend to shy away from people that immediately say they hate it.

Why do people hate him?
If I’m being honest, I’d actually say it’s because he’s amazing. His talent is hard to surpass at this point and few in the game can actually come close to matching him on production value alone.
Does ‘Skrillex’ have any meaning to it?
Nope, it was just a nickname given to him by friends.
