After a year-long hiatus and nearly a decade after his last album, Skrillex has gifted fans with two new albums. Clearly, they seem to approve as he now has 20 songs charting on this week’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, “breaking the record for most simultaneous entries in chart history.”
The Grammy-winning DJ and producer Skrillex, aka Sonny John Moore, released Quest For Fire on February 17th and announced the same day that he would be dropping another the following day. He released the collab-heavy Don’t Get Too Close during his Madison Square Garden rave with Fred Again and Four Tet. Most of the tracks from each album have received millions of listens.
Skrillex rose to prominence in late 2010 with the release of his third EP, Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites. Since then, he’s dropped a number of crowd-favorites, including ‘Where Are Ü Now (with Justin Bieber),’ which has more than a billion listens on Spotify, and ‘Bangarang (feat. Sirah)‘ with nearly half a billion listens.
