What do you think of Skrillex? He's one of those very divisive musicians with a lot of fans but also a lot of haters. I was skeptical about him because he seemed to be a 'scene' thing, but I started listening to some songs of his and got really into them. Also made the weed burning mission in Farcry 3 pretty awesome.

Yes.

I think Skrillex is solid. I prefer other groups/guys like Krewella, Zedd, Adventure Club, though.

I think I only like his Predator and Mortal Kombat Reptile remix. Other than that I don't really like dubstep, but he isn't horrible. I'd go with

No, I totally prefer the sound of a VCR rewinding, or a Dreamcast turning on.

Once you get past the skrillex phase and move on to different artists you realize skrillex sucks

On a serious note, I've never really listened to Skrillex, but I love the collabs he did with Ellie Goulding.

The only Skrillex song I've ever really heard was the one he did for Wreck-It Ralph... it was OK.

I never heard it...

Not at all, anybody with a decent DAW can make dubstep. I don't get the appeal... That being said "The Devil's Den" is ridiculously catchy...

SOOO overrated

#15 Edited by lagoon_boy (10878 posts) - - Show Bio

Only heard five "songs" I think. Never listened to them again, except for a drum cover of Equinox.

I get how popular he is, but I never understood why his music is so popular. Just doesn't appeal to me.

#17 Posted by novi_homines (1338 posts) - - Show Bio

Wait so is skrillex just an instrumentalist? I've never heard any lyrics in his songs. Unless its a collaboration with someone else.

Do I like Skrillex's "Music"? Let me think about it........yeaaaah I'm afraid that would be a no, but thank you for asking though.

#19 Posted by Veshark (9058 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't enjoy dubstep or techno or whatever his music is as a whole. I'm just not a very party-inclined individual, and this sort of music doesn't appeal to me. And not that I'm judging him on his physical appearance, but his Daken-esque hairstyle always looked a little weird.

Despite all that...I have to admit that I actually enjoyed his production on A$AP Rocky's "Wild for the Night". The idea of mixing hip-hop with dubstep sounded stupid to me at first, but the end result was actually...surprisingly entertaining. I thought the two genres complemented each other very well.

A few songs. Not all of them. He is overrated.

No, his music does not fit my tastes.

#25 Edited by TDK_1997 (15089 posts) - - Show Bio

I like him but there are other dubstep groups I like more.

#26 Posted by blackadamFTW (7867 posts) - - Show Bio

I like dubstep, but Skrillex really isn't that great. I mean he has a few decent ones, but that's it.

#27 Posted by Xanni15 (6758 posts) - - Show Bio

Never heard any of his music.

#28 Posted by thespideyguy (2650 posts) - - Show Bio

I didn't like electronic music until I started listening to Radiohead and Atoms For Peace. I haven't heard skrillex but I think Radiohead and Atoms For Peace are as far as I go with electronic music.

I don't like him or dubstep. Surely it can't be that hard finding proper music for a soundtrack.

I think he's alright. His music makes good background noise for doing stuff to.

Music?

#35 Posted by M3th (2099 posts) - - Show Bio

Skrillex fans need to listen to Flux Pavilion.

#36 Posted by Sideslash (5918 posts) - - Show Bio

not really, tbh.

#37 Posted by GhostofOnyx (656 posts) - - Show Bio

I enjoy like maybe 30% of his songs and the rest are a bit meh to me.

This sums up the way I feel about his music.

Does anyone even respect dubstep enough to label it a genre? I sometimes like the way its used along with lyrics/vocals. But if it is simply dubstep, the only way I listen to it is if i'm at a party or something. No way its going to be on my playlists. I kind of group dubstep in the same category as autotune. A tool used to add to an already existing product. Dubstep within a song like this is what I would consider a proper use o dubstep.
