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.
