Sonny John Moore, better known as Skrillex, has a total of 6 Grammy nominations. This is a guy who addressed a simple and honest message to his audience on his Facebook page when releasing his newest album called Bangarang.
Skrillex is known for being generous to his fans, and now it proves that his attitude to file-sharing of his music pays off. While launching his new album, the artist wished everyone happy holidays and reiterated that his fans are free to go pirate it if they don’t have the money to pay for his music. Skrillex admits that he just wants people to have the album – they can, of course, purchase it – either way he’ll love everyone.
Last year he released his debut EP “My Name is Skrillex” and the album was made available for download. Up to date, nominated for 6 Grammy awards, which include Best New Artist, Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronica Album, the artist has become extremely popular for both his skills to write music and his attitude towards free file-sharing.
The musician is now working with Big Beat Records, which is an Atlantic Record subsidiary that belongs to Warner Music. Hopefully, the record label will mind its own business and leave the musician do what he does best – make music, money and keep his audience happy.
This is the right move for the music industry, because modern electronic music couldn’t have existed without online piracy – in fact, sampling, cut-and-paste, mixtape and even file-sharing communities became the stepping stones of musicians like Skrillex who, fortunately, can have a huge fanbase, get nominated, give content away for free and earn money for their work. Skrillex and all his fans have great holidays and enjoy freedom and great music!
