Sonny Moore found club and mainstream stardom beginning in 2008, when he swapped his gig as the frontman for post-hardcore band From
First to Last and d the dancefloor-oriented project Skrillex. He originally used the name for live DJ sets, but in 2009 the project moved into the
studio with Skrillex remixing the likes of Lady Gaga ("Bad Romance") and Snoop Dogg ("Sensual Seduction"). In 2010, the self-released digital download
EP My Name Is Skrillex appeared, combining the Benny Benassi and Deadmau5 styles of electro with the same type of over-the-top samples and the giant
noise of electronica acts like the Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim.
Moore signed to Deadmau5's Mau5trap label in 2010, where he released his second EP, Scary Monsters Nice Sprites, along with the club hit "Kill
Everybody." If topping the club charts didn't prove the producer had arrived, a trio of Grammy Awards in 2011 helped considerably, including Best
Dance/Electronica Album for Scary Monsters and Best Dance Recording for the title track. He also made an appearance on the revived Beavis Butthead
television series, and collaborated with the surviving members of the Doors on a single called "Breakin' a Sweat." The recording of the track was
captured in the documentary film RE:GENERATION, while the song itself landed on Skrillex's Bangarang EP, which appeared in early 2012. The
release won him two more Grammy Awards, one for the title track as Best Dance Recording and one for the EP itself as Best Dance/Electronica Album.
Most of Skrillex's recordings, however, were forced around his busy touring schedule, which found him on every inhabited continent playing to
hundreds of thousands of dance fans. Still, he collaborated on singles with Damian Marley ("Make It Bun Dem After Hours") and Alvin Risk ("Try It
Out"), and released another EP, Leaving, in 2012. His second proper full-length, Recess, appeared in March 2014 and promptly hit number four on the

Thomas Wesley Pentz, better known as Diplo, is unquestionably one of the most dynamic forces in music today. He is as much as an
international brand (tastemaker, spokesman, curator) as he is a musician/DJ/producer. Year after year, he’s proven himself to be an ubiquitous
cultural figure, consistently bridging high and low, mainstream and underground, with remarkable tact and reverence.
In 2004, after studying film at Temple University, throwing influential parties in South Philadelphia, and releasing multiple mixtapes promoting the
aesthetic of his party, Hollertronix, Pentz cemented himself as a full fledged artist through his debut album, “Florida.” Receiving praise within
the underground community, “Florida” caught the attention of XL Recording’s newest act at the time – M.I.A. – who partnered with Pentz to
release mixtape“Piracy Funds Terrorism Vol. 1.” This pivotal mixtape (listed by the New York Times and Pitchfork Media as “Album of the Year”)
helped build buzz for M.I.A.’s debut and boosted Diplo’s reputation as a scene-spotter, championing the mongrel pop of the global underclass to
the speakers of American clubs. Diplo would continue to work with M.I.A. on her first and second albums, eventually creating the Grammy nominated
track “Paper Planes” in 2007, which hit No. 4 in the U.S. Hot 100 Charts and has sold more than 3 million copies.
In 2005, Diplo founded label/culture lab Mad Decent to serve as a showcasing platform for the myriad of fascinating sounds Pentz encounters while
touring the world. The early release of Brazilian group Bonde do Role remains a testament to Diplo’s aspirations, as their music helped define Baile
Funk in the United States. Mad Decent has gone on to release music from a dynamic range of artists that include Santigold, Peter Bjorn John, Rusko,
Crookers, Bosco Delrey, Lil’ Jon, Gucci Mane, Buraka Som Sistema, Dillon Francis, RiFF RAFF, Baauer and Major Lazer. Coming full circle from his
days of Hollertronix, Diplo has also utilized the label to produce the annual and infamous Mad Decent block parties – a series of outdoor dance
parties/concerts that now span 22 cities across North America.
After multiple Grammy nominations, including Producer of the Year, and being crowned the #1 most streamed artist on Soundcloud in 2013, Diplo’s
might continues to grow in 2014. Diplo’s touring remains extensive, playing hard ticket venues all around the world 300 days of the year, headlining
the 22-city Mad Decent Block Party tour across North America, as well as launching the inaugural Mad Decent Boat Party on the Caribbean seas.Following
the success of Diplo’s “Express Yourself” EP in 2012 and Major Lazer’s sophomore album Free The Universe in 2013, 2014 will see the release of
his compilation album Random White Dude Be Everywhere, which includes some of his biggest recent hits that have been seen in TV commercials for
Doritos and Fiat. His chart-climbing single “Revolution” recently broke the Top 40 Pop Chart at radio, making it Diplo’s biggest hit to date. In
addition, Beyonce’s “Run The World” heavily sampled Major Lazer’s “Pon De Floor” and went on to sell over a million copies, further
cementing Diplo’s place in the pop world. He remains the go-to producer for the who’s who of the pop music landscape – Usher, Snoop Lion, Justin
Bieber, Lil Wayne, No Doubt, Beyonce, Madonna, Pharrell and more.
Diplo is truly a jack of all trades – he’s contributed to Vanity Fair, yields regular radio shows on BBC Radio 1 and Clear Channel Media stations,
modeled for the campaign of fashion designer Alexander Wang, released the coffee table book 128 Beats Per Minute and the documentary film, Favela On
Blast, and most recently had a cameo role in 22 Jump Street and stars as the host of the ?uestlove-produced VH1 show, SoundClash. Diplo is a dynamic
and self-driven spirit with interests that span far beyond any singular culture or musical realm; he is truly the 21st century artist.
