Not a fan.

Also, I will never forget how AWFUL his set at the 2007 AP Tour was, where he played under his own name. Good god.

Is there anything in here we did not know? People will always like this because it's easy to listen. Doesn't mean that it's musically invaluable. Sonny has just taken the best of a few genre's and put it together. Nothing wrong with that if people enjoy it. Plus the part about no soul? Not trying to defend Skrillex, but the author should listen to "With Your Friends (Long Drive)"

Electronic music is dying because people became OK with Skrillex being the biggest DJ in the world,” he says, blowing cigarette smoke out the window of his rented East Village loft a few days *before the band heads to L.A. “So they became OK with the idea that the biggest DJ in the world is always going to be shit – therefore you should never try to be the biggest DJ in the world. Fuck that! Electronic is the music I feel the most passionately about, and I don’t like to see it fucking ruined and spoon-fed down our throats in this watered-down, dubstep crap, horrendous shit. When people start lumping us into that kind of shit, it’s like, ‘Fuck you,’ honestly.


I think The Black Keys said it best.

Move along, move along better music than skrillex for me. The rest of the country can be obsessed, they're the ones missing out on all the other good music out there.

Does America really? I still have never heard anything form him. I don't even know what type of music he makes.
