Skrillex Working on New Collab, Shares Inspirational Mini-Movie [WATCH]
Yesterday Skrillex shared an inspirational 11-minute movie filmed by Jas Davis, the LA-based creative famous for his captivating videography.
A montage of touring and show clips sprinkled with hangout sessions with friends and producers like Dillon Francis and cuts from panel discussions, the mini-movie called "The Same Place" not only brings you into the life of Skrillex but reminds you that he's just an earthly alien like the rest of us just trying to do his thing and have a good time!
"Maybe there's no science in what it takes to be called a musician because this wasn't called music even a couple of years ago," Skrillex continued. "The first time I went to the Grammys, people were still like, 'Why is this guy at the Grammys? He's not making music. He's on a computer.'"
During one particularly magnetizing moment, Skrillex is talking during a conference about his philosophy on music and business. We see Sonny's true colors as he emphasizes what he believes to be the keys to authenticity, happiness and success.
"Make music for the 16-year-old inside of yourself even when you're 50 years old. Fuck the craft. Everyone can learn how to do this shit. Cultivate your own thing. Stick together and just do that. Have some fun. Make some music If it's fun... that's all that matters. I'm having fun. I'm in the same room you're all sitting in right now. I'm in the same place you guys are."

And in other Skrillex news, the OWSLA boss seems to be working on a new collaboration with Mad Decent signee Mr. Carmack.
The Honolulu-based producer, real name Aaron Carmack, has risen to the ranks thanks to his signature progressive blending of hip hop and dance music. Fans will know him by singles like "Uppers," "Pay (For What)" and "The Next Afternoon."
It was Mr. Carmack who spilled the beans about the upcoming collaboration in a tweet gushing about the opportunity being a dream-come-true.
I'm a storyteller at heart, and music makes my world go round.
