The electronic artist known as Skrillex, aka Sonny Moore, released the More Monsters and Sprites EP last week, the follow up to his highly successful and similarly named 2010 EP entitled Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites.

The seven-track EP includes three brand new original tracks and four remixes of Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites – the first ever dubstep song to reach the #1 spot on the main Beatport chart. During that same week, 8 of the Top 10 tracks in Beatport’s Top 100 were by Skrillex. []

In addition to dominating the Beatport charts, Skrillex’s first two EPs are also currently occupying the top two spots on the iTunes Dance music charts as of this writing. With that kind of success, it’s not surprising that Skrillex will be one of the many artists playing this year’s Electric Zoo Festival on Randall’s Island (Sep 2-4, 2011). Headlining this year’s three day electronic music extravaganza are the massively popular DJs/Producers: Tiësto, David Guetta and Armin van Buuren.
