Mansion Nightclub Miami: Skrillex is a name everyone, both inside and out of the EDM community, knows very well. Born Sonny Moore, Skrillex burst onto the scene in a huge way just a few short years ago when he first played at Ultra Music Festival in 2011 and he hasn’t looked back since. But Skrillex wasn’t always Skrillex – according to DoAndroidsDance.com before adopting the name Skrillex, he went by the name Twipz – which we have absolutely no idea what it’s meaning or origins are (same goes for Skrillex). Sonny’s first hit was a major one – his remix of Benny Benassi’s “Cinema” is the one track, gun to our head, that we would say really put Skrillex on the map. It received millions of hits on youtube in the amount of time it would have taken you to make yourself a peanut butter & jelly and remains a hit to this day. The track also landed him a Grammy for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical in 2012 (he also won two other Grammys that year).
Reeling from the success he’s had with his latest album titled ‘Recess’ that was released on March 18th, Skrillex is about to embark on ‘The Mothership Tour 2014’ with Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, What So Not and Milo & Otis on May 23rd in Oklahoma City – but guess what city he is gracing beforehand? MIAMI! On Friday, May 2nd Skrillex will be at Mansion Nightclub Miami for what is sure to be an out of this world show (literally). This should go without saying, but this will absolutely be a sold out event so if you’re a die hard Skrillex fan, waiting isn’t an option. General admission tickets are $60 and can be purchased by CLICKING HERE. For VIP information please call 305-695-8411. Mansion Nightclub Miami’s doors will open at 11pm. Others play house, we play mansion!
