Skrillex  Twitter / Snap: Skrillex || Listen to The Island, Pt I (Dawn) [Skrillex Remix]:

🖤

I was 16 on tour with my band From First To Last and we were playing Salt Lake City. there was a record store called “Mechanized” (RIP) right next door to the venue. The guy running the shop was super nice and eager to play me records and was far from the snobby reputation the underground drum and bass scene was getting at the time. He played two for me that I ended up buying that day : DJ Baron “Operation Pipe Dream” and Pendulum “Hold Your Color.” I had already loved electronic music but after that day I told myself I would be a DJ. 🙏🎼🏝🏖🏝🏖🏝🏖🏝 🔈 @pendulum - The Island, Pt. I (Skrillex Remix)

The remix I did of Levels hasn’t left my set since I made it back in 2011. All though we weren’t “close friends” I feel this deep sadness through the connection we had through this song. Tim was a truly a genius and an innovator, yet sensitive and humble. This industry can be rough and from a far I saw it take a tole on him. I just wish I could have hugged him more and told him it would be okay .You’re music will forever be apart of mine and so many other lives. Maybe that’s the closest thing we have to immortality. I really hope you’re essence , wherever it may be in the universe is now at peace. And if in some miracle you can see this , I hope you know that as long as human beings are alive on this planet , you will forever remain
an inspiration. Thank you Tim.
RIP
