MUSIC producer Skrillex delivered a fiery performance in Los Angeles, accidentally setting his hair alight as he blew out candles on his birthday cake.

Skrillex - or real name Sonny Moore - was performing at his birthday party last week when the 25-year-old reportedly paused to take a picture standing above the cake.

Seconds later, his iconic lochs ignited.

The DJ smothered the flames then laughed with the crowd.

Skrillex has won three Grammy Awards, and is credited with shifting dubstep from the fringes and into the mainstream as a genre.
