Premiere: Skrillex & Damian Marley – Make It Bun Dem (Dead Battery Remix)

Dead Battery

To be honest, I’m breaking quite a few of my key principles of music blogging here. For starters, I don’t usually post music that involves big players – like Skrillex. Apart from that, I’m not really a big fan of genres that have drum or step in their name. And yet, this remix is just too good to keep it for myself.

Austrian producer Dead Battery has taken upon himself the delicate task of remixing Skrillex and Damian Marley’s collaboration effort Make It Bun Dem, turning the rather slow-paced dubstep original into an uplifting, high-energy drum&bass-fueled club track for peak-time dancefloors. Experimenting with different styles and genres both tempo- and soundwise, the remix ranges from full-on drumstep drops over classic electro-house sounds to slow dub vibes. The track is available for free download in its full 320kbps glory, all Dead Battery asks for in return is a like on his Facebook page.
