It’s been just about 8 years since Skrillex came on the scene with his My Name Is Skrillex EP. Since then, he has done a massive amount of work to make American dubstep what it is, from an underground taboo to a mainstage success.
Before that, acts like Noisia, Skream, Benga, and of course Pendulum ruled the roost. Skrillex has now released a remix of one of Pendulum’s most popular and remixed tracks, “The Island Pt. 1 (Dawn).”
It’s very much a full-circle story as Skrillex explained, “I bought a Pendulum vinyl when I was sixteen and was on tour with my band From First To Last. It made me fall in love with drum and bass, and has been an inspiration to this day. It was an honor remixing ‘Island.'”
This remix is his first since last year’s “Humble” and Babylon” remixes and we hope you listen to it below.
