Released 8 Years Ago: Skrillex – First Of The Year (Equinox)

Skrillex helped propel one of the largest shifts in modern American music in recent memory. At around the one-minute mark of his first Grammy acceptance speech in 2012, iPhone in hand, scrolling interminably down a list, it became clear that Skrillex doesn’t feel isolated from his peers. It’s always been a defining trait of his character, this aptitude at building things with others. It’s since gone on to characterize, color, and define his career, too. From his music to his label, his countless brand collaborations and his work on major Hollywood movies, Skrillex quite simply loves to make things. Despite being one of the biggest names in music, Skrillex hasn’t walked away from the “do-it-ourselves” attitude he’s had since his start.

8 years ago, the American producer released one of his first break through singles, ‘First Of The Year (Equinox)’. Featuring the iconic bass and electro synths that made him famous and a memorable pre-drop vocal sample, this single created a shift towards dubstep for many non-dubstep fans.
