Glad to see that Sonny's getting some (semi) mainstream exposure.

skrillex sucks.
skrillex is overrated.

I liked Sonny Moore before Skrillex.
He's selling out.

If by that you mean he's getting popular fast, then yes. But I think it's a little unreasonable to say that he's doing this project just to get back into the scene. Because do you think even at his peak popularity he would ever be successful enough to make a really nice living out of it? I think he just likes it. I mean he's been doing it for fun for a long time, or so he says. So you can believe him or not on that one. And who said someone can't change genres anyway? Probably a bad analogy but no one criticizes Dallas Green for doing C&C when while doing Alexisonfire...because both acoustic and post-hardcore (whatever Alexisonfire is, I don't want to get into an argument about genres...because that's stupid) are respected a lot more than dubstep and scene stuff like FFTL.

I really don't even like straight dubstep very much but I really like what Skrillex does. Just something to jam to.

Not to be "that guy" because I believe everyone has a right to their own opinions, but have you ever actually tried to make dubstep? It isn't easy, let me tell you!!

On a positive note, this song is good, not his best, but still good! Definitely looking forward to his career in the electronic scene!

very true. coming from experience, electronic music isn't as simple as it sounds. this dude is pretty talented at what he does.

I just find it weird he happened to make this type of stuff until now that Electro and dubstep are what's in and some metalcore bands are incorporating it into their songs too, He left FFTL like 5 yrs ago, but maybe he does just like it , His stuff is good but never liked dubstep.

There is literally no one out there who does what he does. This is such a sick track, never ceases to amaze me. There are just no other dubstep artists out there with the same musical sensibilities as Skrillex. I keep waiting for the "next skrillex" to surface, but it hasn't happened yet. If anything, he's underrated, not the other way around. To top it off he's still super humble and accessible at his shows. I can't speak highly enough about him.
