Skrillex has tackled Pendulum‘s 2010 anthem, “The Island Pt. 1 (Dawn)”.
The dubstep master takes the drum and bass legends anthem for a dubstep-y rework, but it’s not as straightforward as you’ll think when you kick the track on and hear that first drop.
Pendulum will be putting this out on their upcoming remix album The Reworks (release coming June 29) taken from their platinum-selling LP, Immersion, which topped the UK album charts, and today Skrillex has it up on his Skrillex Selects playlist on Spotify.
It’s no surprise that Sonny is a long-time supporter and fan, and he was quoted as saying that it all started early with him back in the From First to Last days. “I bought a Pendulum vinyl when I was sixteen … It made me fall in love with drum and bass, and has been an inspiration to this day. It was an honor remixing ‘Island.'”
