SKRILLEX UP FOR BBC SOUND OF 2012

Last week he was nominated for a Grammy, now US dubstep megastar Skrillex has been nominated in the BBC Sound of 2012 poll alongside the likes of Flux Pavilion, Azealia Banks and Frank Ocean.

The annual poll, now in its tenth year, is voted for by over 160 music journalists, tastemakers and industry insiders and aims to predict who will make it big in the coming year.

As always the poll picks names from across a spread of musical genres with the wobble heavy dubstep of Skrillex and Flux Pavilion representing the more dance orientated side of things this year and hip hop being represented strongly by Azealia Banks, Dot Rotten and Frank Ocean.

The longlist will be narrowed down to a top five with a winner being announced in early January. See the longlist in full below and click here more details.
