Though Los Angeles born Skrillex (aka Sonny Moore) has been dabbling with making electronic music since his early teens, his music career properly started as the lead singer for American post-hardcore band From First To Last. After recording two albums with them he went solo in 2007, initially under his own name before adopting his Skrillex moniker in 2009. Since then Moore has released several EPs, which have achieved moderate commercial success, scored video games and done some production work with various rock bands including Korn and Bring Me The Horizon. He was named by MTV as their EDM Artist of the year in December 2011.
This is the first single from Skrillex's third EP More Monsters and Sprites. It samples the exclamations of an angry woman shouting at a crowd of which she assumes to be illegal photographers. The over the top reactions of the yelling woman were videoed, then uploaded to YouTube under the title of "Crazy Lady."
The creepy music video, which features a predator stalking children, accumulated over 20 million views on YouTube within its first few months of being uploaded.
