Skrillex biography

Skrillex was born on January 15th, 1988 under the name Sonny John Moore in Los Angeles, but spent a large part of his childhood in San Francisco and a boarding school in the Mojave Desert. After returning to Los Angeles, Skrillex began to get involved in the punk and electronic scene.

Skrillex was able to gain its first experience in the spotlight back in 2004. At that time, still under his real name Sonny More, he joined the post-hardcore band From First to Last as the frontman. Together with From Frist to Last he had already released two albums by 2006. Due to problems with the vocal cords Skrillex left the group after the release of the second album and started his solo career.

In 2007 Skrillex played their own material and accompanied the group Team Sleep, the side project of Deftones singer Chino Moreno, on their tour. In addition to his appearances, Skrillex regularly published his own songs on the Internet. In 2009 came the first EP called Gypsyhook EP, which Skrillex released under the name Sonny.

In 2008 Sonny Moore finally adopted his current stage name Skrillex. He released his debut as Skrillex "My Name is Skrillex" in 2010 for free on the Internet. His second EP "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" and a tour with Deadmau5 followed in the same year.

In the following year Skrillex released a remix EP of "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" under the title "More Monsters and Sprites" and another EP "Bangarang EP" followed towards the end of the year. In addition to his own work as a musician, Skrillex is also active as a producer. The album "The Path of Totality", also released by Korn in 2011, was produced by Skrillex among others and shows clear dubstep influences. Skrillex also contributed a number of songs to video games and trailers, such as Uncharted 3, Snydicate and Mortal Kombat 9.
