Sonny Moore found club and mainstream stardom beginning in 2008, when he swapped his gig as the frontman in a post-hardcore band for the dancefloor-oriented project Skrillex. He originally used the name for live DJ sets, but in 2009 the project moved into the studio, combining the Benny Benassi and Deadmau5 styles of electro with the same type of over the top samples and giant noise of electronica acts like the Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim. His Bangarang EP won him two Grammy Awards, one for the title track as Best Dance Recording and one for the EP itself as Best Dance/Electronica Album. His second proper full-length, Recess, appeared in March 2014 and promptly hit number four on the Billboard chart. ~ David Jeffries
