Sample Magic breaks down the bassics of Skrillex's signature sound

Skrillex is muy en fuego right now. Signed to Deadmau5's Mau5trap label, the former From First to Last Singer (aka Sonny Moore) -- whom we caught up with in advance of his packed show at the Fox Theatre last month -- gained substantial notice recently by absolutely dominating the Beatport charts. At one point, the dude held down eight of the top ten slots on the dance-centric/electronic music retailer's site. And he's done it all this with a distinctive sound centered on warped, effected bass lines -- a sound that, thanks to the fine folks at Sounds to Sample / SampleMagic.com, we now know how to emulate on our own at home, so we can thus become EDM superstars. (If only it were that easy, eh?) [via Beatportal]
