“Skrillex is pretty amazing. He gets such strange sounds out of synthesizers – I honestly don’t know how he does it. I know that he uses Massive, which I have messed around with, too. Actually, it’s a bit of a nightmare because there’s so many parameters, and that makes me even more impressed by what he does.
“His music is very aggressive, but he’ll also have these beautifully melodic moments that really stand out. I don’t generally like music that’s all just one thing straight through. Like with metal, I appreciate bands that have some melody with whatever else they’re doing musically.
“We did a mash-up of Kill Everybody. We took the vocals from Safe And Sound, sped them up, put them on the song and re-arranged it. I did a music video for it with all of these clips of kids falling down. That sounds really twisted and horrible, but when you see it with the song, it’s actually pretty funny.”
