    Skrill's biggest nod came in the Best New Artist field — he's the first DJ to ever be nominated in the category — where he's up against the likes of Nicki Minaj, J. Cole and Bon Iver. He's not about to attempt to handicap the category ("I'm not picking favorites or anything, but Bon Iver seems like a no-brainer," he said), and he doesn't see the mainstream nomination as some grand recognition of the electronic genre, either. Though, he will admit that he hopes his is just the first of many noms for his fellow DJ/producers.
    "Whether it's on an acoustic guitar or if it's on a computer, music's music, and the most important thing about music is the emotional impact it has on people and culture," he said. "I'm only hoping that my nomination this year will carry on to the next year, and open doors for more people to come up and be noticed and recognized as actual musicians."

    Skrillex is nominated for best dance recording for "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites," and also nominated for best dance/electronica album for his EP, which shares the same name. Skrillex, who is also nominated for best remixed recording (non-classical) and best short form music video, says he hopes his Grammy love will give more attention to the dance music genre.

    He has some nice shit, but nothing grammy winning. Idk why Tobias Sammet hasn't won shit yet despite he is easily the best relevant musician making music.

    I remember when I came across "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites", I was like "hay, this guy is pretty good" then I listened to the rest of his music and I was like "this is boring as shit".

    Mainstream music is gay. Has been for forever.

    He makes all his music on his laptop and you can get it for free from his site. Not getting paid $$$$ like pop star fags from industries. He seems pretty humble. I liked his work on the new Korn album.

    That being said 95% of his music/genre shits the bed which is now fully saturated in feces . New generation is stupid when they think of this more then a trifle. This is a generation that will pay money to see likes of girl talk never mind Skrillex

    Yes, yes, suck Skillrex's cock. He has talent, but all his songs make me cringe at some point when I think they're getting good.

    The Music industry and the film industry have been filled with aids ever since fans of it discovered they had power, and put profit over product.

    His music is for people either high on drugs or extremely gay. Music is about art, that means appreciating beauty, not listening to it so you can get laid. Fuck skrillex and fuck every single pop/dance song that was ever made, fuck nicki minaj, drake and lil wayne for ruining rap, fuck radiohead, fuck katy perry and her abnormally sized boobs, fuck metalica and kiss for selling out, fuck crunkcore, fuck christian rock, and most of all fuck you, the common man, for listening to this shit, just because someone's not from any major music label doesn't make his music any better, in fact it probably means it shit, and you are probably a self righteous hipster, so fuck you.

    now it's two.
    Money buys talent. Major record labels can afford better equipment and trained producers so especially for pop and rap money DOES make a song better. Sometimes record companies take bands without musical talent or creativity and deliberately turn them into pop stars, it happens. That doesn't mean every popular signed band is just manufactured by labels. Muscicians know how to make themselves famous, why would a record label fuck with a good thing? They're not shoving anything down your throat because a dj puts on lil wayne at 12:00 it's just what people want. He knows if he puts on eskimos farting into didjaredoos YOU will be the only one dancing, which is a lot worse than you sitting in the corner bitching about eskimo farts while everyone dances to La Roux

    This is the gayest video ever, by the way.

    Only drop-outs, ravers, meta-nerds, and emo kids listen to Skrillex.

    What I hate most about dubstep is not the music itself (yes, it's boring, ear-raping music), but it's fans. Either they're self-righteous hipsters or faggot ravers who listen to nothing but electronic music.

    Skrillex puts his music up for free because he knows nobody would actually pay for it.

    True story. I met my new GF at a Skrillex show and I knew Sonny back when our bands played together in '06

    Much fucking better than some nigger minaj.

    Maybe if the LMFAO producer got off Logic and maybe BALANCED THEIR FUCKING SONGS instead of cranking up the mids and calling it a day. Also Party Rock got nominated last year it was fucking embaressing

    This, I g
    This, I get asked to fuck with their stuff in Ableton all the time by local "rappers" and I swear it annoys the shit out of me.

    I digress. With all the rampant irreverent shit going on with stolen themes and melodies in dance music today (AHEM J.LO) it just makes me RAEG
