Musician Skrillex doesn’t care if you buy or pirate his songs

Skrillex wants you to dance to his music, even if you didn’t pay for it. The electronica musician issued a bold statement to his fans over the holiday weekend, telling them he doesn’t mind if they pirate his work.

Skrillex released his latest EP, “Bangarang,” on dance-centric music site Beatport last Friday. It hits other major music download services today.

“Go pirate it if you don’t have money. I just want you to have it,” wrote the artist on his Facebook fan page. “Or you can buy it. Either way I’ll love you.”

The DJ/producer’s laissez-faire attitude toward piracy is surprising given his major label affiliation. It’s also not what you’d expect to hear from a five-time Grammy Award nominee. Skrillex (AKA Sonny John Moore) received nods last month for Best New Artist, Best Dance Recording, Best Dance/Electronica Album, Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical and Best Short-Form Music Video.

The musician issued one simple warning for would-be pirates and fellow artists who may be looking to sample his work in their own.

“There are a bunch of old unfinished sh*t quality versions of these songs on torrents,” Skrillex explained. “So DJs: be aware of the versions you download because false radio and mix rips aren’t playable for sets.” (via Torrent Freak)
