Beatport Play / Skrillex Remix Competition

Now is the time and the time is now! I need your vote to help my chances in the Beatport Play / Skrillex remix competition! This time round the remixers were asked to mix Skrillex and Damian Marley’s recent hit, “Make It Bun Dem”, a Skrillex style dubstep track with a Raggae vibe because of Marley and the obvious syncopation. 🙂

My remix is Electro House, ala Porter Robinson, Zedd, etc… I’ll give you bonus points if you can name the track that I got the samples for the glitchy half-time part right after the second chorus.

Beatport and Skrillex provided the STEMS for the project which included a Vocal, Guitar, and Synth tracks… The Synth track included all the Basslines and everything that wasn’t Vocals or Guitar, and the Drums were left to the remixers to figure out for themselves. I personally sampled sounds from various places to get the Hook, and the glitchy basses , drums, etc… The only STEM I used was Marley’s vocal track. I replaced the guitar track with my own piano, styled by layering a couple of Reason’s Combinator pianos. I immediately turned to Zedd’s remixes of some of Skrillex’ previous work for some low end grime and that electro feel that Zedd nails so well.

Anyway I’m dying to know what you all think! This is my first remix so I’m expecting some criticism. But that’s how you grow! That’s how you get better. If someone points something out, I’ll listen to it and hear what they mean, and find a solution to that problem in the future. I love the process. So help me out. Drop a comment here or on YouTube or Beatport or anywhere and I’ll get it. Thank you in advance for taking the time to go vote.
