When we rolled up to the Skins premiere party that MTV threw at a giant warehouse on Manhattan’s West Side Highway the first thing we saw was a teenager getting arrested. In the sense that there were real, lasting downsides to bad behavior the party was heavily unlike the television show it celebrated. We never got in, having shown up too fashionably late, so we only got text message reports of how great Sleigh Bells were inside. We’ll take this Diplo remix as a consolation prize, a blood drawing of the sweaty vibe we missed. Says Diplo, “i really wanted to get it out to u guys cause i think the bass and the drums sounds nice and u can play it at your next party.” Feel free to invite us, we’ll bring tons of painkillers. JK we’ll just bring whiskey and not give it to anyone under 21.
