I started to feel like a huge hypocrite for despising this guy without ever listening to anything that represented him (I see the types of events he'd get booked for and the other djs he was compared to) but after watching some of that video I don't feel that way at all. What a complete waste of fucking money. Unless it's just a genius ploy to stick all the douchenozzles in the same tent so us true bassheads can get down in peace.
So I am not a dub-step head. I heard Skrillex's shit and I thought "wow this guy sounds different, I kinda like him." I made a FB status about it and it attracted attention from all the old school dub heads on my friends list, needless to say they didnt like what I had too say. I didnt understand this, along comes a guy that doesnt sound like every other fucking dub-step artist and he gets all this hate.... then I heard Skrillex at a party. Seeing the people that reacted positively to him completely changed my perspective. His fans are such tools. Not too mention his music isn't fucking danceable at all. All the girls stopped grinding and just started dancing awkardley shouting "yeeeaaa Skrillex!". I did not like this
Needless too say, I am no longer a fan
Honestly, this guy is so bad I'd rather watch him perform in his original band. For those who know what his original band was, you realize how big of a statement that is.
yep, strait crap. his relation to the 5er and his ''chart topping debut album'' are not a coincidence. mau5trap pretty much funds beatport anyways.

What an ugly man.
I really don't understand what I'm supposed to gain from watching that.
I kinda like the song, but the video makes me hate everything about it.
Yeah I was listening to one track from every band on the lineup and Skrillex was fucking horrible.
He recently canceled a show cuz his computer wouldn't turn on? Seriously? He plays music from his iTunes. I have a computer with iTunes, maybe I can play next years Coachella. *daydream*
And seriously, who doesn't back shit up?? I mean, if that's YOU'RE FUCKING JOB, and you are presumably paid well for it... and your excuse is, whooopsy, computer problems??? Fuck you. I'd rather you tell me that your dog ate your computer, at least then I'd giggle a tiny bit...maybe I'd chortle.

He didn't back it up cuz his daddy didn't teach him good.
LOL he was playing at a rave in Hawaii as one of the more high-billed acts. he's like a knockoff bassnectar to me
I like his tracks, so he can at least produce. As far as that video goes pretty fucking bad, I wish I could get paid to press play on itunes; well actually to be fair it looks like one of those shitty maudio xponents that comes with a gimped version of torq.
Skrillex represents everything that sucks about music.
This thread fucking rules.
FOUR TET. HOT CHIP. SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO. BOOKA SHADE. LEE SCRATCH PERRY. BEACH HOUSE.
Richie Hawtin. James Blake. Loco Dice.
you're all old and fat
coachella boards are not representative of the coachella fanbase
give it a listen, see if you can get through the whole thing before your ego gets in the way
"MUSIC IS OBJECTIVE. I DON'T LIKE IT AND IF ANYONE DISAGREES THEY'RE WRONG."
quite liked it
Dude's pretty brutal. All the frat bros I know worship him too. Definitely doesn't help his perception in my eyes.
does he wear a hat with his name on it, or would that ruin the effect of the hair toss?
i thought brosteppers didnt like the long hairs....
either way, too many tools doing the one finger button pushing laptop dance
