That's nice of them, giving a place on the longlist to somebody that's already pretty popular - Skrillex - instead of somebody who could do with the exposure.

Dry the River is awesome. Totally been the one band I've been obsessed with this past year. They just announced their debut full length details, too.

Hasn't Skrillex been around for a long time? He is somehow hitting all of these new artist lists. I don't get it.

He's been out since late '09. Sonny Moore has been doing dubstep since '07 but nothing under the name Skrillex was released until '09. But still, I don't think 2 years makes a new artist

I don't mind if Azealia Banks, Frank Ocean or Spector (because of Fred Blood-royale) or even Dry the River win, but if Skrillex wins there will be an even bigger backlash against him.

I hope that Skrillex doesn't get this, Frank Ocean for me.

People need to download that new ASAP Rocky mixtape.

The hype is warranted.

A ha. I thought he had been out for longer, but even 2 years is obviously too long for him to be included on new artist lists.

Re: Skrillex...

So many 'best new' lists or awards are littered with artists who have been around a while... If the mainstream hasn't heard of them, then they're a 'new artist'... A bit stupid perhaps, but it always happens.
