The arctic weather bombarding New York City last Thursday night was no obstacle for fans eager to witness the one and only Sonny Moore, known worldwide as Skrillex, spin a masterful set at Brooklyn’s Output Club. Getting the crowd hyped for the headlining set was Bro Safari, who dropped a bombardment of moombahton and trap music that quickly loosened up the growing crowd. Bro Safari has been gaining notoriety for his epic trap originals and remixes, and collaborating heavily with UFO!.

Taking the stage at 1am, Skrillex began the first hour of his set with a slew of groovy, deep house tunes. The thumping beats blasting from Output’s funktion-one sound system had every body in the room swaying in rhythmic unison. His emphasis on a smooth transitional sound rather than heavy drops has become more prominent in Skrillex's sets lately, and is a sign of his ear for great music rather than simply formulaic sonic destruction.

See you on the dance floor,
Julian Rodriguez and Jesse Wheaton
