As an adopted child growing up in Los Angeles, Sonny Moore had been a firsthand witness to the expression outlet that music can provide. Flash forward to 2019 and Skrillex has become one of the most renowned producers in the industry. However, his determination to inspire positive change in the world remains just as fresh as it did before the fame.
Today, Skrillex shares exciting news on Twitter, announcing that a new music production school has officially opened in Langa, Cape Town, South Africa. It’s a project he’s been hard at work on for years.
Skrillex first began working on the vision in 2012, when his label OWSLA partnered with ‘Bridges for Music’ charity. Since then, hundreds of events, meet and greets, and performances have been curated to raise money for the school’s construction. Additionally, funds collected from his Full Flex Express tour went directly toward the planned school. In 2015, he even donated equipment to the charity’s music program.
“In 2012 we started building a music production school Langa South Africa with @bridgesformusic. its 2019 now and the dream is alive,” he tweeted. Through the power of hard work, Skrillex has turned a vision into reality, inspiring a life-changing legacy through music.
