We hereby formally declare 2014 as the Year of Sonny Moore. From dropping one of the biggest releases of the year Recess, to forming the power couple of JACK U with fellow EDM superstar Diplo, the Grammy-winning artist better known as Skrillex is giving fans a lot to be happy about. In the words of the late Billy Mays, “but wait, there’s more!”
Skrillex is premiering a 35-minute documentary entitled, Let’s Build A Spaceship: Skrillex Mothership Tour 2014, produced in partnership with Red Bull. It brings fans behind-the-scenes of his 20-city Mothership Tour earlier this year, along with OWSLA’s What So Not, Milo & Otis, Mad Decent’s Dillon Francis, and DJ Snake. The film showcases the technical production side of the tour, including the building of the stunning 25-foot spaceship which sat as the stage centerpiece. The LA-based DJ and producer says in the teaser,
“Shows are very important for me. It’s almost why I create music as Skrillex…Looking out there and seeing all these people connecting with the music is the most gratifying thing in the world. Once I’ve reached a certain level in my head of a standard, I always want to beat that next time. I want to take it a little bit further.”
Let’s Build A Spaceship is available on Saturday, October 11 at 6:45 p.m. PST, immediately following Skrillex’s headlining performance at the second weekend of the Austin City Limits Festival. It will be available to stream online on Redbull TV or through their mobile and TV apps. Check out the teaser of the documentary right here.
