More often than not, churning out a remix entails remaking a song into something bigger, louder, and heavier. But when precision is your mistress, as is the case with French techno extraordinaire Brodinski, you can unleash the full potential of a track by turning it down. And this is exactly what Louis has done to Skrillex & Damian Marley’s ‘Make It Bun Dem’.
Yes, a Brodinksy remix of Skrillex. And it is exactly what you would expect – dark sexy beats and perfectly placed synths take the track to a delightfully sinister place, reaching new heights by downplaying the bounciness of the reggae-infused original. Surely whoever said less is more would have been a Brodinski fan.
