Better known than Skrillex than his legal name—Sonny John Moore—the young American DJ star rose to great success in the category of electronic dance music. As a DJ, music producer, and even a songwriter, Skrillex’s tracks became wildly used in dance clubs not only in America but also across the world in A-list clubs. If you are lucky, you will even catch him playing live in the DJ booth at a dance club in the US or Europe. This talented star has thus far won a total of six Grammy Awards.
Unlike most other DJs that began their careers directly from DJing and creating remix versions of already existing songs, Skrillex began his music career as the lead singer in a band called From First to Last. The band was well into the development stages of recording two full albums. However, for whatever reason, Skrillex began a solo career from the year 2007, which led to the release of his solo record Gypsyhook EP in 2009. It is worth noting that it was only following the release of his Gypsybook EP album that he began using the stage name Skrillex. Following the release of his first record, he has since released albums under the titles My Name Is Skrillex in 2010, Bangarang, his debut studio album Recess in 2014 and others. The latest album Recess was released under his own record label called Owsla.
