It took little time for word to spread through the EDM community that the Saturday surprise headliner at the 2019 edition of EDC Las Vegas would be none other than Skrillex. Now that this year's festival is in the books, video of the Los Angeles DJ/producer's set has surfaced about as quickly.
Clocking in at just over an hour, the set Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore) delivered at the circuitGROUNDS stage was riddled with IDs and fan favorites alike. Bouncing between top 40, bass house, jungle terror, dubstep and trap, his performance encapsulated the eclectic range of styles represented in his celebrated discography.
By the looks of things, Moore has a substantial amount of new music coming down the pipeline as well. In addition to a self-titled EP with Boys Noize under their collaborative Dog Blood project, he recently whet fans' appetites for "what feels like a couple bodies of work." Not only that, but he's rumored to be working on Rihanna's upcoming album.
