OWSLA isn’t an acronym, it’s a word taken from Sonny’s favorite book Watership Down. In the novel, an Owsla is the ruling clique of a warren of rabbits, the smartest and strongest rabbits who are in charge of the rest.
So Sonny finally updated his bio on twitter.
24 YEAR OLD PROFESSIONAL PSYCHEDELIC GLASS DOLPHIN BLOWER.
I am so, so sorry I didn’t get a littleskrillexting posted yesterday! I absolutely hate that happening! It feels like I’ve failed you ;~;
I guess I have a pretty decent excuse. I’m in hospital right now, [it’s nothing too serious, I have septicemia, which is just a side-effect of having no kidneys…it’s a long story…] and I was so preoccupied with other things that I didn’t even notice the queue was empty.
I have a post prepared for today, and now that I’m in hospital for a while it gives me plenty of free time to make some more and get the queue filled up again! I just felt like I should apologize for letting things get on top of me. I don’t want you to think I’m neglecting this blog, I still love it hardcore! I’m not getting rid of it anytime soon c:
Bye bye, that’s all, bye, thank you, I like you, and I love you, see you next time, bye.
Sonny made a tweet from an airplane last year saying he’d just watched Tangled and it made him cry. He’s also said he cried at the Disney movie Up :3 bless his little cotton socks.
Ohh, good question!

This was actually difficult as fok but right now, I’d say these are the ones I like most from each EP. I am liable to change this answer tomorrow…
A gauge is a unit of measurement. You pretty much just asked me “What size are Sonny’s millimeters?”
An early Skrillex release. I will forever love this song, because making people smile is all Sonny ever does.
There really isn’t a single category you can put all of Skrillex’s music into, other than “electronic music”. Now if only we could get people to stop calling him a dubstep DJ…
- OWSLA is Sonny’s music label. In the past he’s had a really shitty time with the label he’s been signed to, and he wanted to make a label under his own terms, sign artists he’s really enthusiastic and passionate about, basically a music label that isn’t corrupt, corporate, run by assholes, that kind of thing. That’s the label Zedd, Porter Robinson, Dillon Francis and Skrillex himself are all signed on. OWSLA is run by Sonny, his long term manager Bitvargen and two publicists from a promo company called Biz3.
- They’re G-Star raw pants. They just have a 96 on ‘em, that’s all. Deal with it.
- Same reason I say quassy and mang and babies and tings and dove you logs. I speak Skrillish.
- He had a bad acne problem when he was younger, leaving him with the scars on his face we see today. He used to use his long hair to hide behind but he shaved half his head to try and overcome his insecurities. I’ve answered this question before, you can see it here.
Seeing this post made me angry and I just have to rant, guuh.
I AM SO FUCKING SICK OF THIS HIGH-AND-MIGHTY BULLSHIT!!!
“Oh, I’ve listened to Sonny’s music for longer than you so obviously I’m a real fan and you’re just a bullshit poser jumping on the band wagon and you’re stupid and you don’t even really like him!”
Just stop it! A fan is someone who likes Sonny’s music! A fan is someone who listens to and enjoys his tracks, who can genuinely say “Oh, I love Skrillex!” It doesn’t make you a better person just because you heard about him first!
There are plenty enough haters out there without the fans hating on each other too! Just shut up and enjoy his music.
Sincerely, someone who’s been listening to Sonny since I was 13 years old, which doesn’t make my opinion in any way superior than someone who’s been listening to him since yesterday afternoon.
