Skrillex is the pseudonym used by Sonny Moore to differentiate his electro-house from his band music. It was originally an old AIM screenname of his.
Throughout 2010 Skrillex has become more and more a part of Sonny Moore’s life, having released the ‘My Name Is Skrillex EP” for free and ‘Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites’ through Mau5trap on Beatport exclusively until November 19th, where it will arrive at all other digital distribution stores and websites.
In 2008, Moore began (attempting) DJing under the alias Skrillex at clubs in the Los Angeles area. On June 7, 2010, Moore released his official Skrillex debut EP, My Name is Skrillex as a free download.
In the summer of 2010, Moore provided programming and vocals for English metalcore band Bring Me the Horizon on their third studio album There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret. Later in the year, Sonny began a nationwide tour with Deadmau5 after being signed to mau5trap recordings and released his second EP, Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites.
Currently, a CGI music video is in the works for the title track, and Moore has begun to talk about an upcoming full length.
