Blawan – “Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage? (Skrillex Bootleg)”

With the premiere of his Essential Mix, Skrillex used the opportunity to present a two-hour romp of both mainstream and underground jams, that’d surely grab the dance music world’s attention.  The mix contained classics, current hot jams, Dog Blood goodness, under-the-radar bangers, and of course, unreleased Skrillex material.  One tune in the mix that has seem to caught particular attention was Skrillex’s bootleg of Blawan’s “Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage?.” The original tune was released on Joy Orbison and Will Bankhead’s Hinge Finger label last year and was a bonafide anthem with it’s ominous energies, brooding bass, and sinister droning. With Skrillex’s remix, the tune underwent a bit of a facelift with an added electro edge a few extra growls.  Skrillex’s remix changes the energy a bit in that while the original was rather subtle, by comparison, this remix is quite turned up.  No word on a release of any kind, but it seems Blawan isn’t too happy:

    Well, everyone is going to have a mostly subjective opinion about this, and mine is I found Skrillex’s bootleg mix to be far more my style. Much more energy. Original put me to sleep.

    Good energy but really took away from the originals spirit.
