Skrillex

I've NEVER Seen

Paris Hilton DJ

Paris Hilton may be climbing in the DJ world ... but there's one honor she has yet to receive -- the Skrillex stamp of approval.

Skrillex -- one of the biggest DJs on the planet -- was rollin' through JFK this weekend when we asked if he thought PH had legitimate talent behind the turntables, since she just signed a big DJ contract with a famous nightclub in Ibiza.

But the 25-year-old electronic music phenom behind the megahit "Bangerang" told us he couldn't sign off on Paris' skills, 'cause he's never seen her play. Same goes for Pauly D.

It's not exactly a diss, but a nod from Skrillex could be huge for either one of 'em. Just sayin' ...

Skrillex isnt a dj, hes a producer. He may remix certain tracks, but none of that involves being a dj. Its all production. That being said, Paris does not manually match beats or pitch...a skill indeed. Instaed she pre mixes using software and a macbook. Shows up, presses play, and shakes her ass. She doesnt actually create anything. Also, 500k a NIGHT? From a club that holds 5k people? Do the math, morons.

This guy is very talented, he plays music on his Apple laptop way better then the other two who also play music off their laptops.

Paris HIlton is as much a DJ as Betty White. She's a joke!! She should stick to being pretty and famous and leave the DJing to the people who know how. By the way, Skrillex isn't a DJ he's a producer. DJ's are people like Ferry Corsten, Bad Boy Bill, and Frankie Bones.

Mixin it up on the Technics and media player on the imac laptop with the crossfade enabled on the mp3's playlist is short of a dj.

I know what people say about mixing, pitch, having a good good ear and being able to read the crowd etc...but music is made by musicians that play instruments. Same goes for hip hop. Unless you're the roots, mike shinoda and others who play instruments at their shows, you're a just a rapper.

I'm confused. I can't decide who is the bigger talent. Is it a guy that "plays" music off a program and maybe to add that special touch, will have a vinyl record that he can scratch with a turntable needle. Or is it some guy that talks... raps.. no, talks was right, while sort of music plays in the background and this moron moves around like a spaz and his talking is auto tuned. Imagine. HIS TALKING IS AUTO TUNED. Thats talent.
