Skrillex (pictured above. beautiful.) is a dance music artist who makes very cheesy, semi-hardcore dance music. I’m not a fan but it’s pretty hard to deny he’s got some musical talent. His track “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” is a legitimately pretty electronic track, until he fucking ruins it with these abrasive dub breaks. I get in arguments with people about this song a lot, whether it’s with snobs who deny Skrillex entirely, or his fans who think the song’s all about the dubstep. Fuck em all, I only like it when it’s pretty. I was randomly searching out solid remixes of the track a few days ago on The Hype Machine and stumbled across a piano cover. And it’s great. Check it out below for some soothing sounds on this Monday evening. And I’m including the Skrillex version for comparison purposes, let me know what you think.
