    Just doing some random Google searches when I came across these..

    Skrillex Talks Diplo, Dubstep & Adding 'Craziest Skrillex Sounds' to 'Transformers' Movie | Billboard

    http://www.spin.com/articles/skrillex-craziest-transformer-movie-sounds-diplo/

    Apparently Skrillex will be doing some sound design for the DINOBOTS in AOE:

    In addition to being on tour into August, Skrillex is currently working on sound design for the next Transformers movie, creating "the craziest Skrillex sounds I could ever make."


    Thoughts?

    Will Galvatron have a dubstep gun?

    I don't get all the hate for Skrillex. He may not be the best producer in the world, but he's not a terrible person. After all, his music did introduce me to my favorite musical genre. So I say welcome aboard, Sonny!

    You know what? Sure. If any franchise can use dubstep without me batting an eye, it'd be Transformers. Especially since the music sounds like giant robots moving around, or as someone else put it ever so subtley to me earlier: "Like two Transformers fucking."

    Okay first Steve Jablonsky then Hans Zimmer then Imagine Dragons and now Skrillex working with Micheal Bay and Transformers omg I'm tearing up, even though the film isn't out this looks like it's going to the best yet.

    I dig his stuff. The dupstep stuff is played, yeah, but he's been doing different stuff on the side, morphing that into different genres, and his style can definitely work for creating sound effects here. So, I'm cool with it.

    Skrillex is a pretty good match for transformers to be honest. If he sticks to his original style and maybe adds a little chiptek in the mix I am sure the result will be pretty sweet.

    Cool, I love Skrillex. This should piss off the whiny babies and make the rest of us happy if not at least make us not care since we probably won't be able to pick out the individual Skrillex laced noises anyway.

    Sound design in the first 3 movies were great. I really hope this doesn't ruin it.

    Skrillex is actually pretty talented- he does more than tribal/glitch/electro so I dont think people should be worried
