There’s a certain style of music that’s been around for a couple years now that until recent has really caught my attention. That style of music is called dubstep and there’s a few acts out in the world right now that do a helluva job with it. One in particular is Sonny Moore, more popularly known as Skrillex.
I can’t seem to get enough of his music and I listen to some of his songs over and over. In fact, I find it interesting how producers of today’s media content (TV & music) are using the internet for some of their content. Skrillex also does the same with his music. In one of his more popular songs, “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites,” Skrillex samples an audio clip from a speed stacking video on YouTube. You can more information about SpeedStackingGirl on the wiki page.
The music is very energizing for me and I love all the funky twists through out each song. I simply can’t believe that Skrillex uses some pretty simple tools to perform his music. In an article I read from Beatportal, Skrillex went on to say what his gear consists of:
“I’ve got the most minimal “rig,” if you’d even call it that. Macbook Pro, Ableton Live, some KRK’s (I actually did the whole Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites EP with the right speaker blown!) and some plugins. “
I love the arts and this is definitely one of them that hits the top of my list. I look forward to hearing more from Sonny and wish him the best in all he does.
Thanks for sharing such wonderful and interesting sounds with us!
