    Remember Sonny Moore aka Skrillex, the screamo frontman turned house and dubstep producer we profiled here a little while back?

    His first "official" (not free) release, the Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites EP hit Beatport last week and is currently blowing the lid off their most-downloaded charts, with songs or remixes at numbers 3,4,6,7,9, and 10. Wow. It seems like congratulations are in order &mdash although I'm sure it was our profile that shot him to the top in the first place? Hopefully we helped!

    Tracks on the EP have gotten the remix treatment from drum'n'bass trio Noisia, house producer Zedd and dubstepper Bare Noize. The Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites EP is out now on Deadmau5' mau5trap label and is available exclusively on Beatport for the moment.

    Skrillex is currently on the tail end of a string of gigs opening for Deadmau5, and will be kicking off a run of headliners immediately afterwards. His first EP, My Name Is Skrillex is also excellent and is still available for free here. -peter menniti

    UPDATE: Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites now has eight of its nine tracks and remixes in the top ten, is officially Beatport's top-charting dubstep release ever, and is still on its way up. Congrats, Skrillex!
