Late last year, Sonny Moore, the sub-bass scientist and superstar dubstep-importer better known as Skrillex, invited Rolling Stone to his Los Angeles studio, where he had a surprise in store: He was putting the finishing touches on a secret album.

The album would be called Recess, and Moore’s approach as he worked, he said, was “taking my sound and expanding on it, but being more playful, taking it to different places. I never made pure club music early on.
