Bridges for Music and Skrillex Open Music Production School in South Africa

The school eight years in the making is officially open.

We love to hear the story of an artist giving back to the community. One artist who has used his status and success for good is Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore). The producer teamed up with the organization Bridges for Music to open a new production school in Langa, Cape Town in South Africa. After years of work, the school is officially open. 

In 2012, Moore and his imprint OWSLA partnered with the not-for-profit charity in an effort to bridge the gap between electronic music and children in disadvantaged areas. Since then, he and his team have hosted events and contests to raise the money. The fruits of his, and all those involved, labor has now come to fruition. 

Bridges for Music is an English, not-for-profit charity that emphasizes electronic music as a means of breaking down international boundaries. Artists involved in the humanitarian effort include Richie Hawtin, Luciano, and Black Coffee
