I don't enjoy his music (I tend to prefer live instrumentation), but good for him.

He found a niche and exploited it; he also worked his ass off all year. He's smart with marketing and clearly motivated and determined.

It's a fad (albeit a popular one) like most genres.. he should cash in while he can.

Your view of this kind of music as a "fad" is probably how people overseas view country music in america......

It makes me laugh how many people shit talk him

- Arguably at the top of his genre, regardless of whether you like it
- Most people who know / knew the guy say he is one of the nicest people (see ETID and others)
- With his record label, he seems to want to help other acts out

Good for him. I'm not ashamed to say I like his music... Nothing groundbreaking and I'm sure it won't have longevity... but for now, I like it.
I don't like the music he makes as Skrillex, however when my old band opened for him when he toured on the Gypsyhook EP he was one of the nicest professional musicians I've met. We talked with him in the back/outside of old Emo's (Austin) for at least an hour before the show about anything and everything. He was geniunly excited and grateful that we opened for him and thankful he was getting to play the show. Great guy.

Genres of music become fads. Of course it's merely a prediction, but I don't anticipate him making this much money ever again.

Ha, ever say a word so many times it sounds weird? "Fad" is doing that for me now.
