Remix by: Lewi White & Smasher
Exodus was one of Bob Marley's most complicated records, representing a time in his life when he was forced to flee Jamaica and spend a couple of years chilling in England following an assassination attempt in his homeland. The seven-minute-long song draws on diverse influences including Ernest Gold's score for the film Exodus. The British DJs and producers Lewi White and Smash drew on a whole different set of influences—including dubstep sounds and grime cadences—while putting together their 2008 remix of the title track to the album Time magazine called the best of the 20th century. It's a testament to the power of the original that it retains its timeless power after all this time.
