Skrillex Gives Pendulum's 'The Island, Pt 1' A Future-Dub Remix
"What are you waiting for?" Skrillex's highly-anticipated remix of Pendulum's standout single "The Island, Pt. 1" is finally here, and it's a cross-genre doozy. The hard-hitting original is an unforgettable classic. You started singing that hook when you read it, didn't you? Skrillex took its four-on-the-floor beat and dubbed it out with a laidback reggae rhythm and a very future-bass hook.
Skrill's tropical take is the latest in a string of high-profile remixes. The electronic rock group announced at the top of March that they'd be dropping a remix album called The Reworks in its entirety on June 29. Since then, Knife Party's remix of "Blood Sugar," Noisia's take on "Hold Your Colour" and Icarus' remake of "Tarantula" have been released.
It's a new style for both Skrillex and Pendulum, though it reflect Skrill's catalog of sounds. Listen to his remix of "The Island, Pt. 1" and check the full tracklist for The Reworks below.
