Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls of all ages, today I bring you an EP Review to blast your puny minds away. Today's review brings us to a group named Skrillex and his first and free ep, My Name Is Skrillex. I would go into depth about who I'm reviewing usually,but I really don't feel like going through it today so I'll say it in one sentence. Skrillex are a four member electronic/tech band from Los Angeles,CA, consisting up of Sonny Moore, Chris Null,Sean Friday and Joe Oneill. Interesting last names... Right on to the review then.
My Name is Skrillex: The EP titled track opens up with a small intro,building up every second, repeating the words "My Name Is Skrillex" in different pitches, eventually ensuing in a roaring banger. Its great for clubbing and tthe track reminds me of those Scion commercials a little bit. Its a great way to start the EP 9.5/10.
WEEKENDS!!!(Feat. Sirah): The track rips up in a rather explosive way as if it were progressing from MNIS. It gets psuedo-dubbish in a few parts and even goes crazy with the vocal chopping. I must say its amazing to listen to! 9/10.

Fucking Die 1: This is the lovechild of Todd Edwards,Skream,and Cragga into one dirty but epic dubstep/electro track. I'm not a fan of dirty dub, but damn is it good! My favorite of the EP by far! 10/10!

Fucking Die 2(EE Cooper Remix): Take FD01,make it even more electro,chop it up and rearrange it and you have FD02. Its an amazing mix and I consider it almost as good as FD01. 9.5/10
Do Da Oliphant: In my opinion,it's the most hardcore of them all. Starting of as a headbanging electro powerhouse, it flirts with dubstep here and there, going bonkers the whole time until the insanity stops at 3:27, making it the shortest track on here.8.5/10
With You Friends:The first minute continues from Do Da Oliphant, but instead of hardcore, it starts becoming more of a vivid approach, eventually releasing into a musical journey resembling that of Galactik Knights. It has that GK feel and its almost as if you're playing in a wild 16-Bit Japanese video game. Honestly it's just as good as FD01. 10/10
