Video: Skrillex & Damian Marley – Make It Bun Dem

September 8, 2012 · Posted in Music, Videos · 6 Comments 

Let’s face it. The dubstep genre is pretty prolific, injecting its sound into the production of pop, hip hop and reggae music alike. I wasn’t a huge fan of dubstep when we first got acquainted, but there’s something about those dirty beats that just takes over as they drill your eardrums. That’s just how I feel.

The acclaimed producer of dubstep and three time Grammy-award winner Skrillex teamed up with Damian Marley to package this dope hybrid of dubstep and reggae for us to rock out to, entitled “Make It Bun Dem.”

The visuals are pretty political, honing in on the foreclosure crisis being experienced by millions of Americans today. A crew of boys in blue (and one in white) parade around town with their egos, evicting struggling citizens from their homes. What appears to be a son and father pair of Native American gentlemen are two of the intended foreclosure victims. We catch a glimpse of the son doing a rain  dance, to which nature responds almost instantaneously. The cops get poured on as they face the young man’s father and proceed to leave the premises. I’ve interpreted this as a metaphor for washing away their ill intentions, and assuring the two men that everything will be okay. Some dope effects follow thereafter, so check the visuals above and tell us what you think.
