Dubstep star Skrillex has spent much of the past year on the road, but sources tell Us Weekly that the producer has been dating British pop singer Ellie Goulding. According to the source, the two met through mutual acquaintances in the record industry in Los Angeles, where he lives and she has been spending much of her time.

"It's a really cool new romance and they get along perfectly," the source explains. "They're really good together. Everybody thinks it's awesome. Both of them are so talented. It's a great L.A. romance for her now that she hasn't been in London."

Skrillex, also known as Sonny Moore, has been riding high in recent months. On top of headlining several festivals and selling out a string of live dates in Los Angeles and New York City, the producer took home three Grammys on Sunday night, including Best Dance Recording for his song "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites."

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
