Electronic visionary SKRILLEX comes to the intimate Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theatre on Saturday, December 17th, doors open at 7:00PM. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 22nd at 10AM. Also performing as support on the show is 12th Planet, Two Fresh and Nadastrom. This is part of the Cruzan Concert Series.
SKRILLEX is part of a new generation of artists that refuse to be restricted by preconceived notions or outside expectations. “Genre has never been important to me,” he insists. “I’ve never thought about music that way. I’ve been deep into electronic music my entire life. The first records I ever owned were ‘Fat of Land’ by the Prodigy and ‘Come To Daddy’ by Aphex Twin,” raves Sonny Moore, better known as emerging electronic visionary SKRILLEX. “Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails were also early influences. I’ve been dabbling in making electronic tracks on programs like Fruity Loops since I was 14 years old.” Describing his current sound as “a mix of dubstep, electro and glitch all thrown together,” the SKRILLEX release SCARY MONSTERS AND NICE SPRITES reflects all of the above and beyond. The uplifting post-trance synth melodies of “ALL I ASK OF YOU” (featuring the soaring vocals of Penny) stands in stark contrast to the face-melting electro bass blasts of the massive electro-dubstep hybrid “ROCK N’ ROLL (WILL TAKE YOU TO THE MOUNTAIN). SKRILLEX tracks are inclined to have more changes than most dance tracks normally have. I can draw influences from almost anything. I just like to mess around and create cool new sounds and noises. I just go where the music takes me.” Following its release on Beatport, the 9-song EP dominated the charts on the site, with the title track claiming the site’s #1 slot (the first time a dubstep track has ever done so), 8 songs breaking into the top 10, and multiple tracks claiming the #1 slots on several of the site’s subgenre charts, including Dubstep, Electro House, Progressive House. SKRILLEX stands not only at the vanguard of electronic dance music, but the perpetually evolving new music industry as a whole.
