Skrillex is one of the few major artists that has always stayed lovable, relevant and completely talented throughout his building career. Sonny started with a humble EP known as My Name Is Skrillex, released on MySpace for free no less, and has grown to be probably the most aurally distinctive and visually recognizable face of dance music today. Nevertheless, Skrillex has never “sold out” like so many others, consistently remaining true to the music he loves which, surprisingly, isn’t always dubstep. Want proof? Look no further than his successful yet still underground label OWSLA, home to unique beatmakers like Alvin Risk, The M Machine and Kill Paris. Skrillex prides himself on pushing the limits of the electronic music industry to new heights and for that I sincerely commend the man.
The Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston, formerly the Bank of America Pavilion, is lucky enough to be hosting Skrillex and his Mothership Tour for the second to last stop before wrapping up in Portland, ME and bringing the whole crew out to HARD Summer in LA. The ship lands here on Tuesday July 29th and is bringing with it trap/dubstep duo Milo & Otis and the much-anticipated collaboration of Flume and Emoh Instead, better known as What So Not.
To top of the epicness of seeing these greats right on Boston Harbor in a beautiful open air venue, Flume will be playing a solo show later Tuesday night at Royale in Boston with an opening set by Trippy Turtle.
