Skrillex – Bangarang EP

I always hate seeing the “much anticipated” title in front of artist’s EP’s or their new singles, but Skrillex‘s new EP definitely deserves the “much anticipated”. The buzz surrounding Sonny Moore is at an all time high. When any EDM musician gets nominated for Grammy’s not only within their realm, but in the overall spectrum of music, it’s a pretty big deal.

Earlier this week Skrillex released a mothership bomb where he announced five consecutive dates in LA followed by five consecutive dates here in NYC. The support for the each billing is unique in its own way but are all pretty friggin awesome. Based on the fact that most of these shows sold out within in a minute might suggest he’s become a pretty big deal.

Now, back to the topic of this post, this EP rocks. The tracks that feature Sirah (‘Kyoto’, ‘Bangarang’) are both legit but both have been featured in almost all of his recent shows. My particular highlights include his track ‘Summit” with Ellie Goulding. Her voice comes from the heavens and to put it with a down tempo almost prog trance like track is just awesome. I definitely enjoy ‘The Devil’s Den’ with Wolfgang Gartner as well, I love the reggae undertones. All in all, quite impressed.

Stay tuned for more huge news from Sonny Moore because the man has big things planned for 2012 which hopefully includes him bringing home a few Grammy’s.
