Sonny John Moore, otherwise known as, Skrillex. It’s easy to dismiss him as ‘that crazy dubstep guy’, a caricature of dubstep even, but to label him as such is perhaps an oversight. Skrillex is important, and it’s not just his six Grammy’s and VMA awards that say so. With a fan base ranging all over the world, eight EPs and rising, and a net worth of around 17 million this is a man that has taken his so-called caricature of dubstep and sold it to millions around the world.
