Skrillex’s Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites EP Debuts At #1 on iTunes Dance Chart

Skrillex, AKA Sonny Moore, has had an immense, progressively successful 2010. Signed to Atlantic/Big Beat, he delivered high profile remixes for the likes of Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, and La Roux, amassing a catalogue that rivals those of the most in-demand producers. With the Skrillex name fresh in the minds of the electronic cognoscenti, Atlantic/Big Beat partnered with the ubiquitous Deadmau5 and his Mau5trap imprint to release the EP Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites exclusively on Beatport. Applying the same attention to detail that shaped his rock-oriented endeavors, Skrillex’s latest foray into electronic music demonstrates a finely tuned ability to combine elements of electro, dubstep, and glitch without falling prey to divisive genre restraints.

The EP has since dominated the Beatport charts, the title track sitting at the site’s #1 slot (a first for a Dubstep artist), 8 songs breaking into the top 10, and multiple tracks claiming the #1 position on several of the site’s other charts At the height of Skrillex’s popularity in the US and abroad, Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites was released on iTunes globally this week and secured the #1 position on the dance chart almost immediately.
