    Anyone familiar with his work? This is clearly the left field nominee in the bunch. He was also nominated in the Music Video – Short Form category. The vid is called First of the Year. Check it out.

    Isn’t he the one who is supposed to be bringing dubstep to the U.S. and has been dissed by the hipster community?

    He’s awful, I hate him, and I love dubstep. That’s all I have to say about him. 

    Really disappointing that out of all the options the Grammys had to show some love for dubstep, they just went for the most commercial and shitty one. James Blake, for exemple, would deserve those nominations a lot more.

    It’s fascinating how dubstep has really caught on in the states. TBH it all sounds the same to me but I still dig it.

    Those nominations are just shocking to me.

    If they were going for dubstep, James Blake would’ve been a MILES BETTER nominee.

    Skrillex is DOPE, and their album is pretty hot! I won’t complain at all if they win all three of their nominations. I’m really rooting for them or Bon Iver is BNA. It’s time Grammy voters start embracing indie acts and electronica artists in these upper tier categories. The Arcade Fire/Esperanza wins last year were a great start.

    I love Robyn and would love to see her win Grammys in Feb, but the dance field is stacked this year.

    Btw – James Blake’s album is kind of lame outside of “Limit to Your Love.” I’m glad Skrillex made it in over him.

    Funny thing is, Skrillex is not that well-liked in the indie/hipster community for some reason. As a matter of fact, James Blake threw some shade in an interview last week.

    James Blake (and the indie/hipster community) are all probably salty because Skrillex is the unlikely dub step artist who is breaking out in the U.S.

    Skrillex might end up having a very successful 2012. 

    I really hope Grammy voters stay far, far away from Nicki, J. Cole and The Band Perry in BNA. I really want voters to embrace one of the unconventional acts in that category.

    I rmember Sonny Moore when he sang for a band called “From First to Last” back about 8 years ago when I was in an emo core band.  So happy for him.  He almost became the lead singer of Saosin but went a different direction and I am glad it worked for the guy.  The weirdo.

    Peopel don’t hate Skrillex because of popularity. It’s because it’s cheap, oversized, derivative dubstep.

    I mean, if you listen 5 year old dubstep, it still sounds better produced tahn the cheesy, obvious, and stupidly loud stuff Skrillex does.

    To prove:

    Benga & Cocki – “Night” (a 3 year old track)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgSJn6fhUrI

    Skream – Midnight Request Line (a 6 year old track) 
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovQS1o6Dxfc

    Compare this to Skrillex’s material, and you’ll see why people have a problem.

    And saying serious dubstep listeners have a problem with Skrillex because of popularity, is like saying serious house fans hate David Guetta because they’re jealous. It’s so not because of that.

    Since his GRAMMY nod, dude has blown up. His singles and albums have charted on Billboard and iTunes. Could he have the momentum to pull off an upset?
