About

Cooking With Skrillex is a single-topic blog featuring photoshopped images of American dubstep artist Skrillex, replacing his turntables with cooking equipment.

Origin

Cooking with Skrillex[1] started on January 11th, 2012 by Canadian piercing artist Carly Lemiuex, well-known on Tumblr as carlovely.[2] 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”[5], he was seen as dropping bass fish filets into a pan.



The original photo[4] was posted to Imgur on November 14th, 2011, with over 16,000 views as of February 2012.

Spread

On the 20th, Carlovely submitted the blog to Buzzfeed.[6] The same day, music sites The Daily Swarm[7] and Spin[8] and food site Foodbeast[9] posted several of the photos from the blog. The next day, it appeared on Foodista[10] and FunnyJunk[11], followed by coverage on AbsolutePunk[12] and BitCandy[13] later in the week and was named as the Phoenix New Times of Arizona’s Tumblr of the Week.[14] On January 29th, the blog was featured on The Daily Dot[15], announcing a contest where users can submit their own photoshops to win an Amazon gift card.[16]

Drop that bass…

…into the fish drawer in your fridge, we want it to stay (DJ) fresh. And go back to that kettle! After all we don’t want the kettle getting ‘Louder’ as you leave it on for too long…

Have I given a Music overload yet?
