EDM star wins Best Dance/Electronica Album, Best Dance Recording and Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical.

Before he took home the prizes, Skrill chatted with MTV News on our live-stream red carpet, opening up about his current status as EDM’s “It” boy.

“You know what? I don’t really think about that too much because I’m with these guys and I’m doing shows and you don’t have much time to reflect when stuff [is] happening so quickly. But at the same time, it’s a good thing because it’s more, I’m really focused on my label and my music and touring and making great production,” he explained. “We all live in the moment.

“I think EDM, like what you were saying before, what I was just thinking about, it’s more of really a platform than a genre because it pulls and inspires and it resonates through all types of genres and all types of energy,” he told MTV News’ James Montgomery.

Skrillex is up for four more awards on Sunday, including Best New Artist. In addition to recognizing EDM throughout multiple categories, the show will also include a tribute to the musical movement.

“As DJs, we’ve been pushing new and interesting music for a long time and now people are paying attention. It’s a sound and an energy,” said A-Trak, Skrillex’s fellow producer and a Grammy nominee.

“It is unusual,” Diplo added on the red carpet, in a discussion of the current spotlight put on EDM. “I mean, I think we’ve all been a part of the music scene for a while. But it’s kind of cool were getting the recognition.”
