Skrillex’s Foray Into Reggae
If there is one EDM producer that everyone into the scene has an eye on, it’s Skrillex. Love him or hate him, it’s impossible to ignore dubstep’s golden boy: not only does he create music loved by millions after transitioning from the screamo of From First to Last, but he has done a lot to propel dance music into the mainstream, remixing huge stars like Lady GaGa and even dating Britpop songstress Ellie Goulding. Pioneering a new sound, Skrillex isn’t the best or most original dubstep or electro, but his influence is undeniable.
Skrillex‘s most recent release is undoubtedly something we haven’t heard before, however. Working with the son of the wailer himself, Skrillex signs on Damian Marley to deliver reggae rhymes over stuttering dubstep beats. The result is interesting: reggae is not something that is ever found paired with EDM, so the novelty value is here–but it seems unlikely that it’ll be here to stay. Despite the dubious quality of Make It Bun Dem, it’s certainly a unique sound. Dubstep devotees will take to the song, but as for the rest of us, it’s probably best to give Skrillex a wide berth.
