Born in Northeast Los Angeles, Skrillex spent his formative years in San Francisco. He was homeschooled after he turned 14. The reason behind it was bullying due to his stature.
Moore began his career in 2002, however, his first album “Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Body Count” was released in 2004. Back then Moore and his bandmates worked under the label “Epitaph Records”, which is a Hollywood-based independent record label. Together they did a couple of successful tours and then released their second album in 2006. Again their second album “Heroine” was commercially successful with high record sales. This resulted in many more tours being scheduled. However before the band could perform, Moore suffered from some vocal issue. Due to it, their shows were canceled.
After recovering, Moore permanently resigned from the band and decided to work solo.
