Skrillex Builds Bass Factory

An interview with the Skillmeister and a brief look at his new digs...      09/05/13

Ok, I've kinda been waiting for this to happen for a while. How long would take someone making millions of dollars from music made on a laptop and some crappy headphones to think "Maybe I could build a sick studio with all this money?" But then maybe his vision of a sick studio and my vision of a sick studio might be very different...

In a recent interview with Jeff Rosenthal Skrillex told us about his new 11,000 square foot building in downtown L.A. We also got a sneak peak at the studio in a recent Vine upload. Skrillex says that the studio is for "in-the-box producers" like himself, traveling laptoppers who could benefit from a high-tech home base for plugging in and jamming out... Heres some more of what he had to say about the space.

"There's nothing in L.A. that's like that for our generation," said Skrillex. "We have our own team and our label's going to be in there, building an actual physical infrastructure. Up until a couple months ago my team was all over the world, and everything was by email, but I think people tend to forget that when everyone's in the same room, everything goes 50 times faster. Ideas keep pouring out, and you get a lot more done. So [I'm] building a home for our culture and our scene and a place to even document it and show people what it is. Because it's more than what most media thinks of electronic music -- there's so much more behind why it's there, why it came out of nowhere."
