if you're against generic edm, then look elsewhere to write negative shit, my guy. skrill, despite his massive popularity, still manages to be the forefront of experimental and abrasive modern dance music. his music takes influence from idm, breakcore, glitch, noise, etc. and still manages to rock sound systems like no other.

he's shown he isn't a one trick pony either, his discogeraphy is loaded to the brim with variety, including electro, tech house, breakbeat, trap, glitch hop, brostep, trance, etc.

him and the entire owsla label have just been breaking boundaries and wiping generic edm djs to dust.

Highly energetic dance music. These grumps are too washed-up to enjoy it, hehe :)

Though is true that he is the guy who killed the dubstep scene with his agressive and more comercial "bro-step" sound, he was good on it. I mean, he was signed in Mau5trap. This is something to remember. The problem with Skrillex is that he is too mainstream and this just kills his originality because he needs to appeal his huge crowd. When he started doing Trap I lost practically all the respect for his music, because though I like some Trap, his productions of this kind of music are SHIT. Lame and boring shit. Now he only does cheesy music with cheesy decadent producers like Diplo. The only good thing that Skrillex has today is Dog Blood, his Project with Alex Riddha (Boys Noize). The rest, lame music.

He's not that bad, just massively cheesy. His latest stuff is pretty good. Everybody just loves to get a massive hate-boner for him because of his popularity.

What comments on Skrillex! Did not expect that at all. I don't care if it is real dubstep or not. This guy has made many awesome tracks.

Don't listen to these hipsters that spend their time arguing about music. Skrillex is good if you like Electro House and "Brostep". If you like Burial, obviously this isn't for you. Genres evolve, like it or not; get over it. I personally like "Original Dubstep" and "Brostep". Think of rock. There are multiple sub-genres that are quite different. "Real" dubstep as to soft rock and "brostep" as to death metal. /rant

Get over yourselves, dubstepforum.
If you were real artists/producers, you wouldn't hate on any other form of music.

What those millions of fans know about that you may not are the existence of many quality Skrillex productions not found on discogs.com since they weren't commercially released.

For one, he's super famous for doing a remix of La Roux - In For Kill which Skream himself (one of the fathers of dubstep) remixed and helped popularize in the dubstep scene.
So firstly let me stress to you the quality of his remixes for various artists such as La Roux - In For The Kill, as well as Lady Gaga - Bad Romance (Skrillex Remix), Nero - Promises (Skrillex & Nero Remix), Avicii - Levels (Skrillex Remix) and his Grammy Award Winning remix of Benny Benassi - Cinema.
If you're familiar with dance music, mainstream and underground, you'll notice how he's remixed some of the biggest names from both camps.
Do understand that you need an artist's permission to remix their track so this alone is quite the accomplishment.

Secondly, the rest of his quality unreleased (noncommercial?) productions such as Foreign Beggars - Still Gettin' It (Feat. Skrillex), Skrillex - Scatta (Feat. Foreign Beggars & Bare Noize), Skrillex - My Name is Skrillex (Skrillex Remix), Kaskade & Skrillex - Lick It, Skrillex - Cats Rats and Skrillex - Slats Slats Slats. You can find copies of most of these circulating on youtube.

I should say I personally don't like Skrillex's first album (except for the last track) which I blame mostly on his style not being fully developed at that point.
Sorry that I didn't mention his work with Korn, but since I don't really consider that EDM I felt it best just to leave it out.

One word to describe this guy: overrated. His electro house productions aren't anything too special and don't have a style that says that this song was made by Skrillex. As for his dubstep productions, they're pretty much formulatic hard dubstep, hard dubstep as I see it being the proper term for what people call "brostep"; and don't have anything in them that makes them unique. Personally I find it hard to believe how he can have like a couple million fans on Facebook, especially since a number like that should go to the folks back in London who started the whole thing. Since I haven't heard any of his productions as a member of From First To Last, I can't say if he would be better sticking with rock music.
