SKRILLEX is on the path for complete world domination and is kicking 2012 off with a bang by releasing a brand new EP 'BANGARANG', which is available digitally now. It went straight to #10 in the UK iTunes chart and very quickly peaked at #2 with it taking the #1 spot in the dance charts. In the US it peaked at #2 and went to #1 in Australia, New Zealand and Canada's iTunes charts. The first single 'Breakn' A Sweat (Skrillex & The Doors)' is Zane Lowe's Record of The Week at Radio 1 and has gone straight onto the A-list.
As well as all this, he was announced a few days ago as No. 4 in the prestigious BBC Sound Poll for 2012. It is very clear that Skrillex has become electronic music's front runner and that 2012 is going to be his year.
His February UK tour 'The Skrillex Cell - Grey Daze Tour' went on sale in November and most of the dates are now sold out. The tour includes two consecutive nights at Brixton Academy on 17 and 18 February. If his sold out tour at the end of last year and the packed show at KOKO is anything to go by, this will be one not to miss.
Over Christmas, Skrillex a.k.a Sonny Moore, announced that he was releasing a brand new EP - 'Bangarang' which features Wolfgang Gartner, 12th Planet, Kill The Noise, Sirah, The Doors and Ellie Goulding. This release is currently the #1 overall release on Beatport and follows the October 2010 release of 'Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites' which overran the Beatport charts, holding 8 out of the Top 10 track spots and making Skrillex the first "dubstep" Number 1 on Beatport. His You Tube channel has racked up over 200 million views with the last single 'Ruffneck (FULL Flex)' official video having near 3 million views alone.
