New York City—It was big news that three Swedish DJs could sell out Manhattan’s famed Madison Square Garden, and do so online in a matter of minutes.. But, soon after, the question became, “OK, but can they deliver?”

Answer: Oh, yeah.

Vancouver, B.C.—Before we jetted off to the Pacific Northwest for the Red Bull Thre3style World Finals, we spent the weekend down south—way down south, in fact—for a variety of DJ-related activities. It went something like this:

The 2011 Grammy Award nominations are out and, of course, we quickly focus on the DJ/EDM-related categories. The big story for DJ culture? That’s easy—it’s Skrillex.

EDM’s breakout artist—aka Sonny Moore, age 23—was nominated for five Grammy Awards.
