Skream: 'I remixed The Dead Weather but I don't think they got it'

Dubstep man says Jack White and co decided not to release his remix

Skream: 'I remixed The Dead Weather but I don't think they got it'
Skream has admitted that a remix he was asked to do by The Dead Weather was never released because he doesn't think they "got it".

The remixer and producer, who shot to mainstream fame after reworking La Roux's 'In For The Kill', told NME his Dead Weather remix is unlikely to see the light of day.

"I did one for The Dead Weather, a really, really underground, old school dubstep mix," he explained. "I liked it but I don't think they got it."

He also said that 3OH!3 and Katy Perry had approached him to remix their collaboration 'Starstrukk' – however, he turned the US acts down, calling the song "fucking awful".
