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.”
