Skrillex: "In 10 years babies will make good music"

Skrillex recently sat down with American journalist Katie Couric, telling her how his music's made for the teenager inside him.

He says he's still "young at heart" despite being 27, and adds he's not making tunes focused on the "mentalities" of an older generation.

"I feel like I'm 16 and I've always made music for the 16-year-old in me. Electronic music is a platform. There's all this controversy about the word 'EDM', but it's more of a platform than a genre.

"Every year kids are getting better than us. In 10 years you're going to see a baby make a song. You're gonna see babies make good music."

Other topics include his adoption, his parents' belief of scientology and his preference to just focus on music rather than taking drugs.
