Skrillex, Diplo & A-Trak Cover 'Billboard' Magazine

Diplo, Skrillex, and A-Trak take the cover of Billboard‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the DJ/producers, who have seven Grammy nominations among them, had to share:

Diplo (real name Wesley Pentz), on their success: “I know one thing – the major labels, the A&Rs, are very frightened right now. They see that things are in our hands in a lot of ways.”

A-Track (Alain Macklovitch), on the music industry right now: “It’s a time where all of us are able to rewrite the rules. Not to sound too cocky, but it’s like there are no more rules. There is a captive audience, and it’s hungry. It’s our time to be creative in how we feed it.”

Skrillex, on being recognized by the Recording Academy: “I never would’ve thought that would ever happen in my whole entire life, ever, because of the music I make. I still don’t understand. I play in Las Vegas and there are guys spending $50,000 on tables to see me. What I do is just weird music.”

    Skrillex is right! Now you can be famous just by using a computer.. a lot of opportunities for marketing your brand. You don’t need labels! Skrillex music is easy to make, nothing creative. The labels shouldn’t be scared of music piracy, they should be scared of the internet community. YT breeds stars now, it’s the new era for talented artists who want to share their demo/music.
