Skrillex (born Sonny John Moore, 15.01.1988) Skrillex is an American electronic artist whose biggest hits include 'Bangarang' feat. Sirah and 'First of the Year (Equinox)'.
Childhood: Skrillex was born in Highland Park, Northeast Los Angeles before moving to Forest Hill, San Francisco aged 2. He attended a boarding school in the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas aged 9 and 10 before moving back to California and attending a private academy of arts. After being bullied, he was home-schooled from the age of 14 and found out that he was adopted in 2004. He attended punk gigs and raves as a teenager in LA.
Career: Skrillex started out his musical career in the rock band From First To Last in 2004 after asking frontman Matt Good if he could take up guitar on their debut album. However, he was made lead singer with Good on guitar after producers heard Skrillex's vocals. He released two albums with the band: 'Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Body Count' and 'Heroine' before leaving in 2007 to pursue a solo career.
During his time in the band, he suffered vocal complications which were later corrected through surgery. He then released three demos on Myspace and made several others available on his tour with Team Sleep. In 2008, he toured alongside All Time Low, The Rocket Summer, The Matches and Forever the Sickest Kids.
He released his first EP 'Gypsyhook EP' in 2009 and later appeared at Bamboozle as part of the band Sonny and the Blood Monkeys. Having previously been known as Twipz, he released his debut EP, 'My Name is Skrillex', in 2010. He featured on Bring Me The Horizon's third album and toured with Deadmau5 after signing to his label on which he release second EP 'Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites'.
In 2011, he collaborated with Korn on their track 'Get Up' and later performed with them at Coachella 2011. Later in 2011, he released his third EP 'More Monsters and Sprites' and launched his record label OWSLA. He also collaborated with Knife Party and Kaskade. He announced in November 2011 that he was intending to release his album 'Voltage' but it never came to fruition. He later released his 'Bangarang' EP.
In 2012, he got involved with a side project called Dog Blood with Boys Noize and they released an EP, 'Next Order/Middle Finger'. He also released a limited edition triple vinyl box set and wrote the song 'Bug Hunt' for the animated movie 'Wreck-It Ralph'. Altogether he has so far won three Grammy awards.
Personal Life: Earlier in 2012, Skrillex was reported to be dating singer Ellie Goulding after working with him on his track 'Summit'. However, due to their busy schedules and long distances apart, they split in October.
Singer-songwriter Casey Dienel, who records as White Hinterland, alleges that 'Sorry' uses an almost identical riff to her track 'Ring the Bell'.
Court documents obtained by Entertainment Weekly indicate that American singer-songwriter White Hinterland – a.k.a. Casey Daniel – says that Biebs’ number one hit ‘Sorry’ infringes the copyright of her 2014 song ‘Ring the Bell’, and also names Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Corp. and Universal Music in the lawsuit.

Though Derek and Hansel have left the world of fashion modelling behind them, a part of both of them still has the wish to return to the stage and once again be crowned as the king of the runway. When some of the world's most famous celebrities are found murdered (all of whom have died pulling Derek's trademark Blue Steel pout) Interpol decide to recruit the two fashion veterans in a bid to infiltrate the current world of modelling - an industry that's evolved beyond the one they were originally accustom to.

To celebrate the release of Divergent on digital download, DVD and Blu-ray we are giving you the opportunity to win a copy of the DVD and the amazing soundtrack featuring the work of Ellie Goulding!
The hit action flick Divergent hit cinemas with a bang earlier this year. Adapted from the popular trilogy of novels by Veronica Roth and set within a dystopian, post apocalyptic Chicago with a population divided into distinct factions based on their human virtues, it was only a matter of time until words were transformed into a slick, action packed big screen adaptation.
The young and talented Shailene Woodley was the actress carefully selected to tell the thrilling story of Tris Prior who learns that she is Divergent and therefore will never be able to fit into any of these factions whilst quickly learning that there is a sinister plot brewing in her seemingly perfect society.

Made in America Festival is an annual music event founded by rapper and businessman Jay-Z in 2012. Following its inaugural year, it was announced to take place in Los Angeles for the later events and its arrival has since become an important symbol of unity. Jay-Z created the festival in a bid to join together musicians of all genres, creeds and cultures to emphasise the bond between music-lovers regardless of any animosity that may have existed between hip hop artists, rock artists and pop artists in the past. It is an attempt to build a world of peace and diversity because, in the words of Run DMC star Darryl McDaniels, 'Music succeeds where politics and religion fail'.
'Made In America' is a music documentary based on the new festival of the same name founded by Jay-Z who is also the movie's executive producer. It has been directed by double Oscar winner Ron Howard ('The Da Vinci Code', 'Apollo 13', 'Rush', 'A Beautiful Mind') and features behind-the-scenes clips and interviews of various music superstars including Run DMC, Rita Ora, Kanye West, Janelle Monáe, Tyler The Creator, Skrillex, Santigold and The Hives. The film premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and was nominated for 'Outstanding Television Documentary' at the Black Reel Awards.
Made In America is available on VOD and DVD 19 May 2014
There's been ups and downs, but Ultra Music Festival turned out another year of unforgettable musical energy.
Ultra Music Festival turned out to be a bit of a rollercoaster of a weekend for everyone this year but, as usual, it's been three days of some of the most explosive electronic acts of our generation.
It was a terribly disappointing moment for festival goers (and, indeed, viewers; those who were viewing it live online) when it was announced that Saturday's main stage headliner Avicii would not make it to Miami for his set after being hospitalised earlier in the week for an emergency operation. However, that initial fan frustration was greatly eased by the arrival of Deadmau5, who took the Swedish DJ's place to much delightful surprise. Further entertainment came with some eagerly anticipated headline sets from Tiesto and Hardwell on the Friday and Sunday respectively.

What can we expect from Rusko's surprise release album "Recess"?
Does anyone else remember when British dubstep producer and DJ, Rusko apologised for playing an inadvertent role in the creation of musical sub-genre ‘brostep’? The dubstep DJ admitted “Brostep is sort of my fault, but now I’ve started to hate it in a way...I kind of took it there and now everyone else has taken it too far. I tried to put a bit more energy into it...Now I think it’s gone too far, it’s got too noisy for noisy’s sake...it’s lost a little bit of the feeling”.
In the past, Skrillex has had a very loyal fan base
Clearly, Skrillex didn’t read this interview/get the memo that other DJs had begun to find brostep pretty loud and obnoxious, because he’s released a surprise album. To be fair to him, his pile of Grammys and loyal fans probably spurred him on!
This year's Ultra Music Festival looks set to be the best ever...and here's why.
Ultra Music Festival 2014 will once again be bringing together the biggest names in EDM in Miami. Alongside big-name DJ's there's also a fantastically diverse range of live acts that are ready to set the party city alight this March. Whether you're a dance music fanatic or favour house or drum and bass, there's something for everyone at this three day spectacular. Phase one and Phase two of the line up have already been announced and our jaws dropped in excitement at some of the big name acts, however, if you're still not convinced here are some reason’s why this year’s Ultra Music Festival looks set to be its biggest and best yet.

Queens of the Stone Age, The Replacements, Beck and The Knife are also among the top-billed performers
Coachella 2014 will be returning to Indio, California, this spring for a two-weekend spectacular that will see some of the world's biggest performers gather in one polo field in the middle of the desert. This week the full line-up for the latest incarnation of the ever-popular festival was announced, with the bill yet another feast for the eyes (and eventually the ears too).
Big Boi and Andre 3000 will reunited for the headline performance
Eight years since their last album and eventual hiatus, Outkast will reform to headline the first day of the festival, which will kick start on the weekend of 11-13 April. The Grammy-winning hip-hop duo will be joined on the first day by fellow returnees The Knife, who released their first album in seven years - the acclaimed Shaking the Habitual - in 2013 and The Replacements, who reformed in 2012. Ellie Goulding, Chromeo, Haim, A$AP Ferg, Bryan Ferry, DJ Falcon and many others will also appear on the first day.

Weekend weather worries are minimal as forecast looks mostly clear with some sun and just a little rain over the Leeds/Reading events.
It may be nearing the end of the summer but Leeds and Reading Festival 2013 goers don't have much to worry about in terms of the unpredictable English weather this weekend (August 23rd - 25th).
The Met Office website has suggested some okay weather for Friday and Saturday with information still to come for Sunday. According to them, Leeds can expect temperatures going up to 23 degrees on Friday though mostly accompanied by clouds, while the following day seems to be a little cooler with a good chance of rain for most of the day before clearing up towards the evening. As for Reading, you lucky Southerners; you can expect rather a sunny morning and temperatures of possibly 25 degrees on the first day, though Saturday in Reading will perhaps also see some spots of rain before the evening approaches.
BBC Weather appears to be more optimistic, seeing 24 degree temperatures in Leeds and 26 in Reading on the Friday, though it looks mildly wet for most of the day on Saturday in Leeds and fairly bright in Reading. Sunday could be the nicest day of the weekend as campers emerge from their tents with their penultimate hangovers to find it brightening up in Leeds at 25 degrees and even reaching 27 in Reading. Other sources suggest similar forecasts, though there have been suggestions of a little rain on the Friday; possibly not disposable raincoat and heavy-duty wellies style weather, however.
