As a teenager, Skrillex would often attend punk concerts in the Mexican American localities in South and East Los Angeles and later on went to clubs situated in downtown LA that played electro house music. In 2004, Skrillex flew out to Georgia after contacting Matt Good, frontman of rock band ‘From First to Last’ (FFTL).

He gave his first solo public performance on 7 April 2007 along with Carl Robbins, a renowned harpist. He continued releasing trailers of several numbers on his MySpace profile and subsequently formed his own band and performed alongside ‘Team Sleep’ a music band during their countrywide tour. He launched his official debut EP, ‘My Name is Skrillex’, on 7 June 2010, as free download. In June 2011, Skrillex launched his third EP, namely, ‘More Monsters and Sprites’.
