Moore signed to Deadmau5's Mau5trap label in 2010, where he released his second EP, Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites, along with the club hit "Kill Everybody." If topping the club charts didn't prove the producer had arrived, a trio of Grammy Awards in 2011 helped considerably, including Best Dance/Electronica Album for Scary Monsters and Best Dance Recording for the title track. He also made an appearance on the revived Beavis & Butthead television series, and collaborated with the surviving members of the Doors on a single called "Breakin' a Sweat." The recording of the track was captured in the documentary film RE:GENERATION, while the song itself landed on Skrillex's Bangarang EP, which appeared in early 2012. The release won him two more Grammy Awards, one for the title track as Best Dance Recording and one for the EP itself as Best Dance/Electronica Album.
Most of Skrillex's recordings, however, were forced around his busy touring schedule, which found him on every inhabited continent playing to hundreds of thousands of dance fans. Still, he collaborated on singles with Damian Marley ("Make It Bun Dem After Hours") and Alvin Risk ("Try It Out"), and released another EP, Leaving, in 2012. His second proper full-length, Recess, appeared in March 2014 and promptly hit number four on the Billboard charts. In 2015, he collaborated with Diplo for the album Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack U. The following year saw Skrillex partner with rapper Rick Ross for the hit single "Purple Lamborghini," which appeared on the soundtrack for Suicide Squad.
Over the following years, Skrillex issued singles such "Would You Ever" with Poo Bear, "Saint Laurent" with DJ Sliink, Wale, and Austin Millz, and "Face My Fears" with Hikaru Utada before issuing a surprise EP, Show Tracks, in 2019. Comprised of just two tracks, the glorified single included "Fuji Opener" with Alvin Risk and "Mumbai Power" with BEAM, which he'd included in his live sets for much of the year. In 2021, Skrillex returned with the Starrah and Four Tet collaboration "Butterflies" and "Too Bizarre" featuring Swae Lee and Siiickbrain. ~ David Jeffries
