HEADLINE BREATH OF LIFE 2012 DANCE STAGE
After months of anticipation, this is it; the moment hype becomes reality...The moment a massive becomes exceptional....Here at Breath of Life HQ, we're all about lung health; but this bombshell will quite literally take your breath away...
Locked and loaded in the breach and ready to explode onto the Ministry of Sound Dance Stage Breath Of Life 2012, Ladies and Gentlemen welcome none other than the multi talented, multi project, one-man machine and international man of the moment, SKRILLEX.
He is versed in many different genres including Dub Step, Drum & Bass, Electro-House, etc. Describing his current sound as "a mix of dubstep, electro and glitch all thrown together," new SKRILLEX release "SCARY MONSTERS AND NICE SPRITES" reflects all of the above and beyond. The uplifting post-trance synth melodies of "ALL I ASK OF YOU" (featuring the soaring vocals of Penny) stands in stark contrast to the face-melting electro bass blasts of the massive electro-dubstep hybrid "ROCK N' ROLL (WILL TAKE YOU TO THE MOUNTAIN)."
Aside from the immediate success of "SCARY MONSTERS AND NICE SPRITES," SKRILLEX has also made a name for himself as a highly sought-after remixer. He's already produced officially commissioned remixes for such A-list artists as the Black Eyed Peas ("Rock That Body"), Lady Gaga ("Bad Romance" and "Alejandro"), and La Roux ("In For The Kill"). SKRILLEX stands not only at the vanguard of electronic dance music, but the perpetually evolving new music industry as a whole.
Impressed? We're just getting started. Watch this space...Until then, breathe some life into your summer with some of Australia's most loved superstars...
