Mobile,AL- Dubstepper, multi-Grammy award winning Skrillx aka Sonny John Moore will once again play the ever-growing popular Gulf Shores Hangout Music Festival again, but this time on one of the three big stages.
His performance at Hangout 2012 was on a small stage off the beach, but that didn’t stop a few thousand fans from going crazy when he hit that small stage. Thousands of other people at Hangout missed him and wondered, Skrillex? Is that something you spray in a frying pan? Well, if it’s a three time Grammy-winning frying pan, the answer is spinning electronico yes. If there is a Superman of electronica then his name would be Skrillex. If you are wondering what the word Skrillex means, it means nothing. It was a nickname John had for awhile, he liked it and it stuck for this project.
Even if you are “not into” electronica music, this guy might change your mind. Like I said, several Grammy’s and he produces for names such as Korn, who joined him on stage at one of his performances. If you play video games you have probably heard his music. If you watch movies you have probably heard his music. If you listen to music, you have probably heard his music. If you plan to go to Hangout Festival this year – May 15th-17th, you should look into tickets now. This festival usually sells out a few months in advance. Go here. -Preston Brady III, Mobile Tribune.
