  1. Who isn't Steinvord? On Soundcloud, RDJ stated that he himself is not Steinvord. He also stated that he does not even know Steinvord's identity and only Grant does. I know that the identity of Steinvord is intended to be a secret, and even if such a wild guess that Steinvord is Skrillex were true, that it would be denied. Proving that Steinvord is Skrillex is not the point of this topic. Recently, John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili Peppers has been making acid house, which demonstrates that an accomplished musician in one genre can also work in a different genre. Let that stand as exhibit A. Skrillex has stated that he was a fan of Aphex, and Aphex retorted in somewhat a lukewarm fashion in a remark. Exhibit B. Skrillex has the technical equipment and meticulous editing capability and focus needed to arrange music that fits tightly into the genre he is marketed in. It seems unnatural to have that much skill and no desire to experiment outside of such a tight range. Is he not human? Does he not admire the same music 'we' admire? Couldn't he whip out a DNB banger if he was in the mood? My point in creating this topic was not to make you say "hm wow maybe..." but rather, I want to collect as much proof as possible that Steinvord is NOT Skrillex. So, basically... prove he's not. All due respect to protohuman sensibilities in advance.
  2. Hate him or love him, aside from the abysmal layout this interview was pretty comprehensive. http://www.complex.com/covers/skrillex-interview-alien-nation-2014-cover-story/ Some TLDR tidbits: "With Skrillex, before I got into synthesis, I was sampling a lot and taking pieces and remixing" "I never meant to make Top 40 records; that wasn’t my goal for Recess. I’m still learning who I am as an artist, and I’m not trying to force anything. People don’t understand why I got so huge, so all they can do is hate on it and put me in a category." "People don’t realize how simple it is. It’s all about doing you and going back to the core of why you like making music. I’ve always made music for that kid in me." "You’re being critical of something and someone else so much because you have your own insecurities. That’s the essence of it." "I worked on some sound design for Transformers: Age of Extinction. Moody Good and I made full-on bass, dinosaur-robots-killing-each-other sounds." "The hardest thing to do as an artist when all this other shit is happening is getting into that zone where you’re almost bored, which is the best thing to do. [...] That's when the best stuff comes out."

  6. Millions of people all over the world are passionate about music. Throughout history, people have looked to music as one of the deepest expressions of the soul, a way of communicating thoughts and feelings that would otherwise be lost in words. And while this emotive impulse is one reason to start making music, we should know by 2012 that there are many others. Now that YouTube has officially replaced the MTV generation in terms of sheer cultural explosiveness, we are witnessing many more of these new reasons. These days, people want to be famous. And they don't care how it's done. We have an entire culture of people who are rewarded for being weird, hilarious, crazy, fucking awesome, or to use the dictionary word, egregious. People want to be different, they want to step out. They want to be known for something, anything that will get them attention. This has become such a powerful motive, that for most of today's popular musicians, it has simply replaced the original meaning of music. Forget , forget aesthetics, forget . People are becoming incredibly successful for their work, but it has nothing to do with musical talent. It's not simply a case of failing to be a good composer. Indeed, artists such as Skrillex and deadmau5 have achieved exactly what they wanted to do with their music. They're not interested in technical skill, or attention to detail, or any of the priorities of professional music. Their focus is popularity, and figuring out exactly what their fanbase wants. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSeNSzJ2-Jw And as it turns out, they want bass drops. They want robot diarrhea. They want manic, sugary melodies that make you feel warm inside for five seconds. You don't see people on YouTube looking for deep, emotional soundscapes to appreciate and empathize with. Because that's totally gay, you know? This is a culture that rewards stupidity, outlandishness, and being totally whacked out on crazy sounds. In fact, the very idea that someone would take this music seriously is hilarious in itself. And that's part of the novelty. They know you're not supposed to treat Dubstep like a Beethoven symphony, and for many people it's refreshing to be able to enjoy music without having to put too much effort into it. The point is, the appeal of this music is social rather than musical. It's all about popularity, in every sense of the word. This may seem frustrating to many, especially if you focus on musical talent as a virtue, but this is simply where our culture leads when you have all the ingredients. For what it's worth, Skrillex (and most dubstep artists, to some extent) is very successful at what he does, and he has the hit counter to back it up. He gives fans the entertainment they need, and they in return give him all the attention and praise a celebrity could want. It may not be emotive, but it's music that can be shared and enjoyed as freely as any internet meme. Whether that makes it "real music" is entirely up to you...
  7.
