Everyday I get a text message that goes a little something like this, “Dooddd why can’t I stop listening to Skrillex?” To be honest, I’m stuck in the same boat and have yet to come up with a bulletproof reply. Why? Because its difficult to explain the wide spread appeal that artists like Deadmau5 and Skrillex are realizing (I intentionally put them in the same sentence because Skrillex may just blow up that much). Personally, I’ve always loved heavy ugly whomps and bass hits as long as they are offset by angelic acapellas. Its similar to the sour patch kids effect; at first they’re sour, then they’re sweet and somehow when all is said and done, you love them (see commercial above). If anyone has an ironclad reasoning for why these sounds quench so many ears, please let me know in the comments section. Below are some ill remixes to his work… For instant updates, follow him on Twitter and Facebook.
