Oh man…remember when MySpace with its top (insert arbitrary number) friends was the dominant social media platform and Facebook was nowhere to be found? There’s a good chance not a lot of you guys reading this will, I certainly only have hazy memories of it, but you’ll get a glimpse today as we walk through memory lane courtesy of Skrillex.
While his old MySpace page has been archived by now, it’s available for viewing exactly the same as it had appeared before it was left inactive sometime around August 2009.
If you’re asking me what the point is in digging all of this up, don’t worry we’re getting to that. Note that in the space of just over a year, 14 months to be precise, Skrillex was opening for Deadmau5 and had Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites signed to mau5trap. Aspiring producers here’s a New Years Resolution for you: if you’re worried that your career’s not quite where you want it yet, don’t give up. While you might not make the astronomical jump that Skrillex did in about a year’s time, use this as motivation to get back into the studio and keep on working.
For those wanting to continue along on their stroll through memory lane, head on over to the archived site here.
