Skrillex added to Sonar’s 20th birthday

04.02.2013

The young producer from Los Angeles has revolutionized electronic dance music, and become one of the world's most popular artists.

The American artist will be performing at Sónar by Night on Friday, 14 June, on the same stage where the pioneers Kraftwerk will be presenting their exclusive show in 3D.


In little more than a couple of years, and aged only 25 years old, Skrillex went from being the vocalist of hardcore band From First to Last to becoming the most popular electronic music producer working today, loved by millions of fans and performing before crowds of hundreds of thousands.

Skrillex is the leading figure of the new explosion of electronic dance music in the United States, and the leader of what is known as “brostep”, a style that has grown out of British dubstep but with amplified acid frequencies on top of its bass, maintaining the intensity and the aesthetics of his hardcore past.

However, Skrillex – real name Sonny John Moore - has not only won over audiences: in 2011 he won 3 Grammys (Best Album, Best Dance Record and Best Remix), he has become one of the most sought-after remixers and has collaborated with artists such as A$AP Rocky, Boyz Noise and Harmony Korine, with whom he worked on the soundtrack for his new film, “Spring Breakers”.

On his latest EP, “Leaving” the young dj and producer from LA has made a slight turn away from his musical beliefs, slowing down the rhythms of his tracks, and moved towards a more experimental post-dubstep sound.

Skrillex will play the same night and on the same stage as Kraftwerk, in a leap of time of some 40 years taking us from the pioneers of electronic music to one of its today’s biggest international artists.

Skrillex surprised his fans yesterday by uploading this intriguing photo to his social networks. Today we can reveal that this image refers to his confirmation for Sonar's 20th anniversary in Barcelona.
