Christmas catch-up: Skrillex

US dubstep artist and interesting hairdo owner Skrillex has just placed fourth in the BBC's Sound Of 2012 poll. He sounds like a novelty doorbell having a nervous breakdown in a trash compactor - but, you know, in a good way.

His latest single is project with the remaining members of The Doors, called Breakn' A Sweat but, when Radio One announced his Sound Of position this morning, they wisely plumped for the more memorable First Of The Year. A huuuge tune on the blogs last year, the track starts off with a jaunty little piano riff, before being eaten by a giant hairy Doctor Who monster.

If you have children, you might want to turn the bass on your speakers down before listening to this...

Skrillex - First Of The Year (Equinox)

NB: This is the how the BBC's World Service covered Skrillex when he was added to the Sound Of 2012 longlist in December... Best radio moment of 2011.
