Skrillex is hardly a "B-list artist", moron. He's one of the top selling and most popular electronic artists performing right now. Someone sounds like their age is keeping them from accepting new music concepts and styles. GET OVER IT.

 

 

god. I remember when dubstep as we know it now was first exploding in the electronic music world as a full on genre, and I knew this was going to happen. The thing I hate about music sometimes is that a new sound will evolve into being, it'll have a boom in popularity, then hackish musicians looking to be the next big thing will take it, and make it as shallow and commercial sounding as possible, and next thing you know, it's turned into pop music.

Why is it that when a genre crosses over the pond to the states is simply distilled to its distinct characteristic and then it becomes the only characteristic that is then pushed forward. The wobble-bass was a part of dubstep but it had much more things, but since coming to the US it has become the only thing that carries a track and the people gobble it up.

Saw Nero a few weeks back (was there to see Diplo). It was just lolfully horrible. They literally just did trance tracks with dubstep drops instead trance drops. the Jersey Shore crowd who seemed to be predominant (shirtless ugly teenagers apparently on pills for the first time) just fucking loved it.

 

conversely when diplo came on and smashed out a bunch of syncopation, polyrhythms and odd meters, they just looked confused. a good proportion of them straight up stopped dancing.

Because the people doing the distilling are just trying to make $$$, and you need a hook to make $$$ and wobble is a hook because it's totally expected.

 

There are plenty of good musicians in the US who actually do innovative stuff, as I'm sure you know, they just aren't going to get popular enough here to be noticed back at the point of origin.

There was another bullshit comment in this vein:

 

Marc Wardak |October 8, 1:05 AM ET

"Anyone who has hateful things to say about this is only afraid of change, and afraid of something that's never been done before."

 

^Jesus, this isn't the fucking Bob-Dylan-going-electric debate. These commentators act like this is some kinda revolutionary event. It's just a fucking major label promotional puff piece meant to sell more reissues to old folks and get more people to listen to shitty electronic music. The results will sound, at best, like big beat remixes people use to download on p2p networks. These kids saying this have no idea that remixing and sampling has been going on for decades. Dumbasses.

 

Also, the Doors haven't really existed since Morrison died, and Skrillex was asking people on forums how to load VSTs into cracked software a couple of years ago. I actually like some of the other producers involved (well, DJ Premier anyway), but the whole concept and marketing behind all of this is quite sad.

Early this summer I heard that Skrillex was booked to one of the biggest indoor scenes in Norway in November. "LOLWUT, no fucking way they will trick 8-9000 people to buy tickets to that shit" was my thought. Now the "concert" is almost sold out and he is gonna play an extra show for people under 18.

Skrillex is everything that's wrong with music today.
