When asked to list the reasons for EDM’s exponential increase in popularity, Skrillex responded:
“I think it was the timing, the fact that the internet and being able to share media happened at the same time where computers and music programs are so accessible to the people who are younger coming into music. Me coming through a band [From First To Last], I found it easier to express myself fully through computers. It’s a one stop shop.” – Skrillex
