Benny Benassi - Cinema (Skrillex Remix) [Dubstep] 10 Year Anniversary!
By - psychic_subwoofer
Was my jam in High School. My friend had a hoodie that said DROP THE BASS and we would blast it on our way home from the mall after going to Hot Topic and FYE. Good times.
Sounds like a hell of a time honestly
Vampire kids… smh
What do you mean?
[freaking hot topic. I think we all know what has to be done.](https://southpark.cc.com/video-clips/sb581o/south-park-burning-down-hot-topic)
Sorry you're being downvoted for an obvious joke. I still think of that episode everytime I hear mention of Hot Topic, great commentary on how "alt" styles are completely manufactured and sold to kids seeking individuality, and how similar groups like goths, emos, scene, vamps, attack each other for being "posers", when really they have more in common with each other than anyone else, and they all are being "posed" by companies that sell them their personality.
Exactly! Good grief I was beginning to wonder if I was the only left in the room with a plus.
Not sure why you're being downvoted, but also have no clue what you're trying to say.
This with cod modern warfare 3 and bo2. Fucking good times
I like how you can roughly tell how old people are based on their favorite cods since they usually line up with middle school/high school
I started playing online COD with COD4:MW but I played MW2 the most. Roughly how old am I? (I think your theory is pretty accurate I'm just curious how accurate.)
I’d go with 25 +-2
Pretty damn close. 29. I was a senior in high school before I really got into online shooters. I was much more into single player RPGs and racing games up to that point.
Yeah, 11 to 10 y/o its like the average age for a cod player in those times.
tho mine is easy since the year I was born is on my account name haha.
and Counter Strike! Don't forget Counter Strike!
Probably can tell my exact age lmao
the two worst cods lol.
Oh, man, you are NOT ready to hear about Advanced Warfare
You my friend are wrong. They are the best.
the best cod games are cod4, mw2 and bo1
Oh my god forgotten high school memories unlocked w this… Driving around at night in -30C with friends looking for a place to loiter lmao
I still listen to this from time to time ever since I heard this in Forza Horizon 1. Great fun memories. Dubstep gets a lot of hate but I think it really works spectacularly in this song.
Forza Horizon 1 had an insane soundtrack for the time. Icarus, Language, Silicone Lube, Show Me A Sign, Lick The Rainbow, Illmerica, etc etc
Horizon 1's Bass Arena has the best songs in that station's history, with Horizon 3 being second. The songs you mentioned are all sick and I'd add Rusko - Somebody To Love (Sigma Remix), Nero - Me And You and Rusko - Everyday (Netsky VIP) to my favorites. Everyday (Netsky VIP) sounds phenomenal and is unfortunately only in game. There is the original Remix but the Forza version is way better to me. Reminds me of how Forza Motorsport 4 had special game only VIPs of Iron Heart, Cross The Line, Judgement Day, Rise And Shine etc. But anyway, Horizon 1 Bass Arena is the best Bass Arena.
This period of dubstep was great , whatever riddim shit they play now really isn't
It gets a lot of hate because this isn’t what dubstep was/ was supposed to be. Its just noisy.
I never understood this dichotomy. I started with brostep because that's the first time I had heard of "dubstep" but eventually found my way back to Skream, etc. I like both styles! Sometimes I feel like listening to classic dubstep, and other times I feel like listening to brostep.
You don’t understand how two completely different sounds are are presented as being entirely different?
It’s because they *are* entirely different
Also, its worth noting, I never said anything terrible against brostep, i merely pointed out the answer to a question, and that its noisy.
No that's not what I mean. What I mean is, people act like you're only allowed to like one sound, that no one is allowed to say that they enjoy both styles of dubstep.
Gatekeeping at its finest. Its one of the worst aspects of any fan base.
Electronic music and its myriad genres tend to be particularly bad with it.
I think this case is kinda unique in that dubstep kinda had a bad rep for a while, and this particular brand of dubstep kinda 'tarnished' the more classical style that sounded very different.
I think the only reason people make the distinction is it's still like a recoil from having people talk shit about a genre they love, even though they were talking shit about a very different style.
I do think that none of that matters anymore, I think we're well past the point in time where we worry about whether or not dubstep/brostep is lame, its history now and has had a huge effect on popular music.
Oh god you sound like the whiney narrator from that low budget uk dubstep documentary
Personally speaking, I was into dubstep before it went mainstream/robotic (however you may describe it) but even then these tunes have a special place in my heart.
Even with the fact that this kind of "butchered" the dubstep name.
I first heard this when Benny played it on the main stage at Ultra and will never forget the energy in the crowd when the first drop hit. Amazing.
Dude same here! Was so fucking amazing!
So many good memories to this song. This song was life summer 2012
It came out in 2011 lol
I found it late lol
Original track by benassi in 2010.
Remix in 2011.
Time flies huh
10 years?!?!?! Holy FUCK I'm old!
Got to see Nero drop this at Hard Summer, then Skrillex came on after and dropped it again and everyone went just as insane
Was that hard summer 2012? When Skrillex had the freaking mothership stage set up?
Oh shit I totally forgot that they also were on the lineup in 2012. That was actually my first electronic festival. Saw so many awesome names for the first time that night. Bloody Beetroots. A-Trak. Oliver. Gesaffelstein. I think I saw Dillon Francis and Chromeo on the small stages that night. Bootsy fricken Collins also played! That was so much fun. And yeah that Skrillex spaceship stage that moved up and down was wild. I had never seen anything like that at the time.
Man Fake Blood was at that show too. Played the same stage as the Bloody Beetroots. Thete was that stage all the way on the left side of the park that had the metro line swing around it which added to the atmosphere at night. The music was loud enough for the people on the train to hear it and sometimes there would be people dancing on the trains as they passed by.
That year hard summer had tops 90-100,000 people. The next year it was somewhere around 200,000. Year after that they had to change to a larger venue. Being around the festival scene when electronic music blew up was a fantastic time to be alive. Hard Summer 2013 happened a month after Disclosure dropped Settle and they played a tent stage. The album was already such a hit by the time the show happened that the crowd was spilling out of the edges of the tent.
Yeah it's wild looking at the 2012 lineup and seeing names like Zedd playing the small tents haha. That venue was great. It was also before trap/bass music blew up even more and kind of took the festival over. I like some trap stuff myself but it definitely shifted the lineups a bit going forward and it just wasn't really my thing. EDC Vegas became my main festival starting in 2013 and I only went to Hard Summer 2013, 2014 and Hard Red Rocks 2014 and wasn't as into the lineups after that haha.
I live right by LA State Historic Park now and definitely miss festivals being there. They have developed a lot of that land so the available space can't hold festivals anymore. The last show I saw there was an incredible one though. Odesza's A Moment Apart tour finale show with Big Wild opening during the summer of 2019. Such an amazing show.
Agreed on the trap and bass music thing. The crowd shifted at that point too. Had a lot more aggressive types of people attending. More fights, more pushing and shoving. More people playing really funny pranks like giving a thirsty person on molly a water bottle full of vodka.
Anyway, I missed that Odesza show but I heard it was amazing! That park is so beautiful now. They’d be crazy to have a festival there again because it’s just get destroyed.
Oh absolutely. I don't want it to come back at all. I just miss the proximity of it haha. I actually tried going to Hard Summer one more time in 2015 but was sold two fake tickets that were super convincing and was denied entry at the gate. It was obviously my own fault and was an expensive lesson learned. I went with a big group and had to drive the van back home and come pick everyone up later when it was over. It was awful. And I was so bummed out by the experience that I just lost all interest in Hard Summer after that haha.
Oh my god I’m sorry to hear that. Yeah, Hard events just weren’t the same when they left the park. Selfishly I’d like them to come back to the park just because it’s such an awesome venue with the skyline in the background especially during sunset and at night with the moon in the sky.
I’ve since moved out of California, but am going back to San Pedro for an Insomniac house music festival called Day Trip that should be pretty great. The venue is right on the waterfront and looks amazing.
2014? That set was amazing. Most of the festival was watching Tiesto at the main stage so there was so much room! I've seen Nero like 3 or 4 times. Always incredible.
No in 2012! It was Skrillex coming up so he was at the sun stage. I also got to see Emelkay drop When I Look At You
Skrillex was actually main stage that year! I totally forgot that NERO actually played on the same stage right before Skrillex but they kept having technical issues with the sound cutting out. I think they may have even ended their set early because of it or something like it. It was a major bummer and then Skrillex came out with the space ship stage and blew everybody away haha.
There is pretty good beat saber map for this song
Fun fact: This song won a Grammy for best remix.
10 years ago this sub hated Skrillex, times have changed.
Because he isn’t forced down everyone’s throat as the greatest thing since sliced bread. Still very overrated, IMO, but knows how to make a catchy track and will have to say, seems like a genuinely very nice guy.
I have a memory from sxsw in Austin shortly after this track dropped and my friends and I could hear it coming from 3 different bars at once. truly an instant classic
I remember hearing this for the first time with friends in 7th grade and losing my shit
Who else remembers Kanye West repping this track on Twitter back in the day? (Although he misspelled Skrillex 😄)

lol show me the evidence
Damn those youtube ads
that intro still gets me I have to give it a play through at least once a month on a short errand drive or something.
Reminds me of Identity Fest 2011!!
This song always reminds me of that Marquese Scott dance video. That dude is amazing.
Absolutely love this tune
