Year taken: 2010

“This was the first day I met Sonny. It was his first performance in NYC as Skrillex. He was opening up for Atari Teenage Riot at Gramercy Theater, and his sound was so monstrous. Nobody knew how to ingest it. After the show, we hung out backstage, he played me his Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites album, and we talked about Beatport rankings and such. A week or two later, he reaches #1, completely fills up the top 10 chart on Beatport, and signs to Atlantic Records.”
