Skrillex owns the night.
The diminutive 23 year old ball of pure energy, whose real name is Sonny Moore, is quite possibly the hottest DJ in the world right now, having been anointed as much by established greats like Deadmau5 and Tiësto. He's basically the vanguard of the dubstep movement in the U.S. and he seems to be everywhere you look in pop music at the moment.
And the kid deserves every bit of credit he's getting -- his "drops" are raw, vicious and as powerful as a kick to the chest.
Here's two from Skrillex. Above it's the brand new, totally mind-bending video for First of the Year. Below it's Rock 'n'Roll (Will Take You To the Mountain).
Happy Friday, gang.
