Cooking with Skrillex started on January 11th, 2012 by Canadian piercing artist Carly Lemiuex, well-known on Tumblr as carlovely. The first image posted was of Skrillex looking surprised in front his turntables, which had been turned into a stovetop range. Playing off of the popular mechanism in dubstep of “dropping the bass”, he was seen as dropping bass fish filets into a pan.
The original photo was posted to Imgur on November 14th, 2011, with over 16,000 views as of February 2012.
