Dubstep-influenced electronic artist Skrillex, who surprised many by scoring five nominations for the 2012 Grammy Awards, has taken home the award for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical.

The award was presented at this afternoon’s non-televised ceremony. Skrillex won for his remix of ‘Cinema,’ a track by Benny Benassi. Skrillex was in attendance and took the stage, reading a lengthy list of thank-yous from his cell phone.

In addition to thanking his management and label teams, Skrillex put his Grammy win in perspective, saying, “This is really crazy for me, man. Just a year and a half ago I was making that song in my bedroom. I was living in an illegal warehouse space in L.A.”

Skrillex beat out an impressive list of electronic dance music artists, including deadmau5, Daft Punk, and Afrojack. In his speech, he gave a shout-out to “everyone in the EDM community. This means a lot to us… I think it’s awesome that we’re all getting recognized.” David Guetta had won the Best Remixed Recording Grammy the previous two years.

Skrillex is also up for Best New Artist, an award that will be broadcast during the main telecast, which airs at CBS at 8PM ET tonight.
