Skrillex: Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites (Big Beat/Mau5trap)

What happens when a bespectacled screamo kid makes a dubstep album? Recklessness, like when the wheel of a monster truck’s been turned over to a teen driver.

Text Christopher Ujine Ong

Ex-First To Last vocalist Sonny Moore shuttles shards of trance, rave and house into dubstep space, and despite the massive bass-wobbling, the songs sound like Euro-dubstep shucked for the uninitiated. Dubstep purists will hate this, but everyone else is gonna love this wreck. Maybe that’s why deadmau5 signed him?

LISTEN TO: ‘Kill Everybody’
IF YOU LIKE THIS YOU’LL DIG: Feed Me, iSquare, Flux Pavilion
RATING: 3
