In LA, in 1988, a man named Sonny Moore was born. He would eventually take the professional name Skrillex, delivering electro and house music to fans around the world. Moore's journey to electronic music and his moniker was not a straight line. It takes a detour through metalcore during the years he spent with the band From First to Last between 2004 and 2007. During his time with the band, they played a number of big tours, including Vans Warped, but vocal problems would eventually force Moore to have surgery. After the surgery, Moore resigned from the band and turned his focus to a solo career.
Setting up on MySpace, Moore released his first tracks. Soon he was playing with various musicians on a number of multi-artist tours while releasing an additional EP. In 2009 Moore released the Gypsyhook EP under his own name. Gypsyhook was his only "pre-Skrillex" EP, one that mixed electronica and alternative rock. Moore toured briefly with rap-rockers Hollywood Undead under the name Sonny and the Blood Monkeys in 2008.
That same year he would adopt the name Skrillex and a couple years later release his "debut" EP, My Name is Skrillex. During that time he worked in a producorial capacity for the band Bring Me the Horizon and toured with fellow electro artist Deadmau5. Later, he worked with Korn on the track "Get Up," who joined him when he played Coachella in 2011.
Skrillex tours extensively in support of his music, bringing his sound to appreciative audiences with a flare for visual as well as the musical. Get your tickets to see him today!
