unclear, possibly Hispanic

There was only one person named Sonny John who was born in 1988 in Los Angeles:

If this is Skrillex, his birth name was Sonny John Duque and his mother’s surname was “Galindo”. So he likely has a latino background.

Skrillex actually has a brother that goes by the name Bobby Duque, who is a producer. The man whose birth certificate I linked has a brother who was born Justin Robert Duque.

Skrillex is definitely of Hispanic descent, and he was born Sonny John Duque.

I guess it’s his dark eyes and hair that are ‘Spanish’ of him.

He looks very British (paleness, thin lips and all).

Theropod you’re the most racist animal i known spanish people aren’t dark as you think
y’all think spanish are dark hair/eyes because you’ve seen some spanish have same complexion now you think everyone must be the same. i suggest you to study history especially european history before you talk. True spaniards has been for centuries and not consider as dark but white just like any other european country nowdays american makes craps about spanish being dark because they see a lot of hispanic people in america . spanish-moor(arab) and romani gypsy today makes spanish with dark hair/eyes looking

Spanish people are white, Spain is in Europe, just because Latin people speak Spanish, that does not make them Spanish, The same way Americans are not British because they speak English.
