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.

I cant judge this guy (girl?),because his cheeseness is extremely massive!

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

A lot of people don't know this, but true story behind Skrillex how he got famous is because once an extraterrestrial life from outer space tried to contact Earth and they sent their signals to the planet, sadly the signals hit Skrillex's basement antenna. The kid, while hitting the puberty and being high on shrooms, heard the signal, called it dubstep and people started dancing to it. You have to be on shrooms too to like his style of 'music'. Also any wasted white trash girls will dance to it too. That's all you need these days to get famous in this biz.

Believe my story, because you are reading this on the internet, so it must be true.

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.

It infuriates me that this guy has attracted so much negative attention to not only dubstep, but drum & bass as well (and even other edm subgenres) because it has just fueled the idea that is held by ignorant metal and non electronic music fans that this music takes 'no talent to produce' and that 'all you need to do is push a button' now i'm not exactly sure what software skrillex uses, but there's no denying that he is a great producer (yes i said it) even if his sound is quite restricted and hated by many. Maybe its just me, but i can actually hear when a bar ends and begins and understand why he puts the sounds where he does, yes its noisy, but it pisses me off that all these indie / rock / metal fans or whatever (who wouldn't know what the fuck to do if you sat them in front of a computer with a new project on ableton / logic / reason opened up) dismiss not just skrillex, but any form of dubstep or drum and bass and sometimes even other sub genres as 'noise that you make by pushing a button' making a decent tune in any DAW is bloody hard, and just because you can play guitar and sing some ed sheeran to get a few groupies does NOT make you superior or more musically talented than an electronic music producer, and though i'll admit his sound is shiny, in-your-face, commercial and a lot of the time cringey (particularly in his track with you friends featuring his erm...'signature' voice scrambling) he's clearly very good at what he does, whether you love or, as most of the respectable music world apparently does, hate his sound. As for me, i can't help but dislike him slightly purely for the fact that he took a genre that i liked and respected as an underground scene (yes i know i sound like a hipster but if you search 'dubstep' on youtube today you're going to get a lot of generic videos called things like 'hot dubstep girl!!' with mixes full of tracks by some second-rate 'brostep' imitators who dress like screamo fanboys with the addition of a snapback and a massive ego) and turned it into something which the americans now think is their own, and is used as a blanket term by idiots who are still waiting for the next nicki minaj single...Seriously, the amount of time i've been listening to drum & bass and heard someone refer to it as 'dubstep' or even heard some total moron use the term to describe a track by underworld (long respected techno / trance producers) as the aforementioned term, it really makes me want to stab myself in the face. I mean are all these people completely tone and apparently beat deaf?? You can even break it down into 'drum & bass = faster, dubstep = slower' and people still seem tro struggle with telling the difference...I don't know, maybe its just the effect that the rise of 'brostep' has had to the scenes, i suppose they have said that the gap between dubstep and dnb is decreasing...
But i digress, to be honest if i just push all that out of my head and approach it as music to put a smile on my face and not have me scratching my chin at the originality and intricate beat patterns, i can say (to my shame) that i can enjoy skrillex's stuff, even if people constantly ask to hear fucking bangarang at parties...
But to people who out and out hate him and everything he stands for (who i wouldn't argue with) rest assured i'm pretty sure he's fizzling out, at least for a while, until he makes a comeback of some sought and then fuck knows what music we'll be in for...
So i have to agree with a previous commenter, his first ep is pretty crap (speaking to people who don't refuse to listen to any of his stuff here) because obviously he was just starting out, but despite my self i actually have a soft spot for the monsters and sprites ep's (and yes i realise that to a lot of people that makes me not a real music fan :L) but i suppose its just because its the tunes he made after he blew up out of nowhere, and he was trying to show people what he was all about i suppose. Anyway i don't know what is, perhaps it was just that i was around 13/14 at the time and was pretty shallow with my music taste :L But anyway, my verdict is that love him or hate him, skrillex is obviously a very skilled producer to those of us that can look upon his music objectively, its just a shame that he (probably without knowing it) spawned a generation of mindless dubstep sheep. And yes, i am calling it dubstep, because if this carried on in about 10 years time there'd be no subgenres in electronic music, just the notion spread by stupid american metal to edm converts infecting the entire world with the idea that anything that dosen't have a guitar in it is...yeah
Right so rant over, i'm gonna go listen to some trap - apparently its the next big thing in shitedm!

I personally think this guy is a twat who has ruined Dubstep, no offense to any americans but stop calling dubstep your own. Skrillex didnt create it. It come from Dub reggae (DUB) and UK garage (STEP or 2-STEP garage) I own the first credited dubstep records which were made in UK IN 2003, Big apple records by a set of lil' guys called SKREAM, BENGA and ARTWORK heard of em??? America never even heard of dubstep over 9 years ago so stop calling it your own. Where these americans got the idea its their's makes me laugh. This guy here, fair dues has brought up a genre to the mainstream for all masses to hear and appeal to most ears (mainly americans lol) good on him. He should be credited with ruining Dubstep, rather then so called creating it. Should give him his own credited genre called ''SHITSTEP''. i'd rather listen to spice girls!! Also alot of people may have forgot this.. check out ARTFUL DODGER - REWIND, the break for the chorus part, what does that sound like? That tune was created in 1999 around the time UK GARAGE was evolving to create Dubstep :)
