Skrillex

I'm sure most of you are familiar with the music craze that is Dubstep (Altho i would not classfiy skrillex as dubstep but thats just what hes referred to). Skrillex is one of my favorite artists and his recent explosion onto the scene has been phenomenal, with concerts selling out everywhere and albums selling like hotcakes.  

I have been listening to Skrillex for about 1 1/2 years, but as i said just recently he's been gaining ALOT of popularity. I feel kind of mixed. Im obviously excited he has the money and fame to be sucessful and continue to produce more music. But when i see all the hipsters  and tools listening to him i sort of cringe. Not to mention im worried he will just churn out brostep just to turn a profit off the new audience he has attracted.

Do you guys like Skrillex? Whats your opinion on Dubstep and the electro genre?

  6. I like his sound as well, but I can see your hesitation, I don't thing he has enough Dubstep sound, but the electro is kind of cool sometimes.

  10. I think people should really stop classifying Skrillex as Dubstep. One of the reasons theres so much hate on him is because a lot of kiddies hear him and say things like "z0mg skr1llex is teh best dubstepper ever lol!! datsik? who's that?? lol". Still, great post. +1 follower :)
