Skrillex to Construct Warholesque Creative Studio in Los Angeles' Chinatown

We all know Skrillex as the guy who brought dubstep WOMP WOMPs into houses everywhere and sadness to many mothers who wanted a quiet home. Well, the DJ has bought a house of his own, an 11,000-square-foot building in Los Angeles' Chinatown. He plans to convert the space into a studio for "in-the-box producers" (think traveling laptop musicians) who need a space to jam out.

The hub is gaining comparisons to Andy Warhol’s Factory in the way that it hopes to foster a creative community. “We have our own team and our label’s going to be in there, building an actual physical infrastructure,” Skrillex said in an interview. “Up until a couple months ago my team was all over the world, and everything was by email, but I think people tend to forget that when everyone’s in the same room, everything goes 50 times faster. Ideas keep pouring out, and you get a lot more done.”
