Cultlike doesn't begin to describe Skrillex's followers. Rolls or no rolls, for those who live for the frenetic pace and bass wobble of dubstep, a Skrillex show is practically a religious experience.
The 23-year-old DJ and producer used to front a popular screamo band, From First to Last, until his vocal chords gave out and he dived headlong into another expiration-dated niche. Since releasing his official debut, My Name Is Skrillex, in 2010, he's become one of the most recognizable names in EDM. His sets are neon speedballs into oblivion. They almost always sell out.
