Skrillex Unveils Mau5trap/Big Beat Debut EP; "SCARY MONSTERS AND NICE SPRITES" to Be Available Exclusively at Beatport.com on October 22nd; Followed Four Weeks Later by Release to All DSPs; Acclaimed New DJ/Electro Artist on Tour Now, With Headline Dates, Festival Appearances, and Major Shows Alongside Deadmau5

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 20, 2010) - Mau5trap/Big Beat recording artist Skrillex is poised to unleash his much-anticipated new EP. The "SCARY MONSTERS AND NICE SPRITES" EP will be available exclusively via Beatport.com on October 22nd, followed by its arrival at all DSPs beginning November 19th (exact dates differ based on territory).

A multi-talented DJ and artist, Skrillex has made waves with his extraordinary remixes for Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Perry Farrell, La Roux, and HORSE the band, as well as with his own idiosyncratic blend of dubstep, electro-house, and whatever else catches his fancy. 

Hailed by ARTISTdirect for a sound "somewhere between the glitch-psychosis of Squarepusher and the catchier than hell dance of Daft Punk," Skrillex is currently on tour alongside Mau5trap Records founder Deadmau5, with dates scheduled through a hugely anticipated New York City show at the legendary Roseland Ballroom on October 28th (see below itinerary). From there he will embark on an array of North American headline dates and festival appearances, including the Meltdown Music Festival 2010, slated for October 30th at the Dallas Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.
