Skrillex Feat Damian Marley – Make It Bun Dem
Remixpack + Ableton project | 120 MB
The song started out as an original, without lyrics, in 2011. The instrumental had no name, and was only played live. Fans dubbed the song “Rudeboy Bass”, as it used the sample “Rudeboy bass, mash up the place!” The song was later re-edited and vocals from Damian Marley’s “Welcome to Jamrock” were added. Skrillex eventually sent the demo to Damian. Instead of releasing the song as a remix of “Welcome to Jamrock”, Damian offered to record original vocals for the song, replacing the previous ones. This version of the song, with new, original vocals, was premiered at Surrender Night Club in Las Vegas, on January 21, 2012. Damian posted the finalized version of the unnamed song, finally confirmed as “Make It Bun Dem” on his SoundCloud page, on April 16, 2012, as a listen-only track. The release was postponed from an earlier date to May 1, 2012.
