After releasing the "Gypsyhook" EP in 2009, Moore was scheduled to record his debut studio album, Bells, with producer Noah Shain. However, he ceased production of the album, and began performing under the name Skrillex. After releasing the "My Name is Skrillex" EP for free download on his official MySpace page, he released the "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" EP in late 2010 and "More Monsters and Sprites" EP in mid 2011. Both have since become a moderate commercial success. On November 30, 2011, he was nominated for a total of five Grammy Awards at the 54th Grammy Awards, including "Best New Artist" and won three; "Best Dance / Electronica Album", "Best Dance Recording" and "Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical". On December 5, 2011, the BBC announced that he had been nominated for their Sound of 2012 poll. On December 12, 2011, he was named MTV's"EDM Artist of the Year", ranking him in front of other successful acts, such as David Guetta and deadmau5.
