First of the Year (Equinox) (4:22)

Cover of More Monsters And Sprites

From More Monsters And Sprites and 3 other releases

“First of the Year (Equinox)” is a song by American electronic music producer Skrillex. It was released on June 7, 2011 as the lead single from his third EP, More Monsters and Sprites. Musically, “First of the Year (Equinox)” is prominently a dubstep song that uses elements of electro house. The exclamations throughout the song were taken from an infamous YouTube video of a woman yelling at a crowd which she presumes to be illegal photographers and skaters, shouting “Call 911 now!” The song has since become a moderate commercial success, peaking within the charts of the United States, Australia, Canada, Norway and Sweden. A music video directed by Tony Truand, produced by HK Corp, premiered on August 10, 2011, and was nominated at the 54th Grammy Awards for Best Short Form Music Video. The music video was nominated for the MTV Video Music Award for Best Electronic Dance Music Video and it won the award for Best Visual Effects in a Video at 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
