In a cluttered home studio in downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District, mere blocks from where he wrote “Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites”, the song that sold millions of copies and helped instigate one of the largest shifts in modern American music in recent memory, the galvanizing totem of a youth movement daps at a midi controller, ceaselessly cuing the same snare sound over and over and over and over, for literally hours. Literally. Hours.
Skrillex has a lot of thank yous. At around the one-minute mark of his first Grammy acceptance speech in 2012, iPhone in hand, scrolling interminably down a list, it became clear that Skrillex doesn’t feel isolated from his peers. It’s always been a defining trait of his character, this aptitude at building things with others. It’s since gone on to characterize, color, and define his career, too. Whether with his label, OWSLA, his numerous media projects, the NEST online community or the building in downtown LA he’s currently converting into a state-of-the art creative space, Skrillex knows there’s power in numbers. Skrillex quite simply loves to make things.
Across the board, those numbers are significant- when a person with one of the largest social media followings in the world decides to engage his community, they engage back. Within a year of forming the label, OWSLA, in 2011, it had launched the careers of some of the most buzzing names in American electronic music, all the while staying true to their connection to the community of artists around them and exploring multiple genres along the way. OWSLA continues to pick up momentum, more heads become aware every day, and they tell their friends.
One year later Skrillex collaborated with friend/cult filmmaker Harmony Korine by scoring his critically acclaimed Spring Breakers movie and also composed an original track for Pixar’s Wreck It Ralph while simultaneously penning one of the biggest club hits of the year with A$AP Rocky (Wild For The Night). He then dropped his first fashion collaboration with G-Star around the same time (it sold out globally in a matter of days). Three consecutive homeruns across a broad appeal spectrum, but it’s easy to identify commonalities among these seemingly disparate projects when they’re examined in this uniquely Skrillex context – awesomeness prevails, always. And it’s always a team effort.
Gift certificates are available in a variety of denominations and may be redeemed toward any ticketed performance at the historic War Memorial Auditorium as well as the Tennessee Performing Arts Center.
