Rave: Skrillex in Puerto Rico

I'm really excited that 2012 will kick off with a loud rave courtesy of Skrillex, one of the hottest new DJs to enter the techno scene. On January 4th, 2012 Skillrex will take over the Muelle Panamericano in Puerto Rico, and turn it into a rave scene extraordinaire.


Coors Light is sponsoring this event, so we'll probably be only to buy that crap once inside. Whatever, this is going to be great. In addition to Skrillex, Zedd y Alvin Risk will be throwing down the big bass. Skrillex is part of a new generation of artists that refuses to be restricted by any pre-conceived notions or expectations.

I've heard some describe his music as what it must sound like when Transformers do it. And by do it, I mean hot Transformer on Transformer sex. Skrillex, himself, describes his sound as "a mix of dubstep, electro y glitch, all together."

Background

Like many people, I owe Steve Jobs. I owe him for restoring music back to my life. When I bought one of the first generation iPods back in 2004, it brought music back into my life. Over the course of about 10 years I had stopped listening to much music.

I, like millions of others, listened to only what the radio played or whatever CDs and tapes I carried around in my car. The iPod meant I could load all of my favorite music and listen to it on demand. It was like being rescued off of a deserted island. I couldn't believe how much I missed listening to the soundtrack of my life and not the sponsored soundtrack offered by some local radio stations. Music = Life!

Dubstep and Techno

I love music. I love finding new music. I love the Internet for making my search for new music a joy. So when I came across electronic or techno music I was in heaven. It was like a mash-up of some of my favorite instruments, styles, and sounds. For me, it becomes even more special when you consider that by electronic, much of the sound is coming from computers that are running part of the slow.

Last year when Electric Daisy Carnival came to Puerto Rico, I was kicking myself in the ass for a year, for not going. So when EDC came back in 2011, I was there and it far exceeded my wildest dreams. I hope they bring it back again in 2012, but thanks to this Skrillex event, we'll get our dubstep groove on early in 2012. Tickets are available in Ticketpop under the "baile" section, not conciertos. Go figure. It can't be both?

If you're going, be sure to stop by Puetro Rico's Skrillex Rave Supply Shop I've set up.
