Uggggh.

That shows no fucking effort.

Jealousy? Seriously?

That's the weakest possible idea someone can put forward while debating someone's music.

I mean I think that Justin Bieber is shit. Is that also because I'm jealous? Does every single person who has ever thought something was shit thought it purely because they were jealous also? Fucking hell. I think maybe I might just think it's shit.
I don't think it could be possible for me to be any less jealous of Skrillex too. I mean If I ended up anything like him I'd feel that something somewhere had gone seriously wrong in my life. This guy annoys me more than anyone else right now.

whatever is getting really popular starts to make people form the idea that its the quintessential sound of the genre. when the sound is such a deviation from what people like, or if someone takes a step back and thinks about how these songs are being seen as representing the current 'scene', people realize that its not how they want it to be represented

dubsteps about variety anyways.

you have people who have poured gallons of blood, sweat, and tears into this scene since before skream ever made his first tune, when the music was pure, the scene was small and close knit. although i don't have as much experience as a lot of people, i'm very protective of what i think dubstep is and what it should/could be and i can only imagine what a lot of londoners have invested (monetarily and emotionally) in this music.

when i got into dubstep, it was all about atmosphere, minimalism, and meditation. ask anyone on the street what "dubstep" is now and they tell you it's all aggro wobble filth noise from a bunch of ras trents. it really makes me sick, sick to the point i don't use the term "dubstep" in context of the current popular form, or at all because people assume i love borgore.

when i started posting on this forum, the big names posted. some still do, but not to the point i used to see. i'm sure it's because all these diaper wearing amateurs just make them slap their foreheads. the disrespect and ignorance is amazing.

variety? sure. watering down the first original scene i was able to be a part of since its inception? fuck no.

rant over. if you still don't get it, go through tempa's back catalog and tell me it in any way resembles what a lot of people claim their "dubstep" to be.

Very true coming from a listener that will listen to anything from Datsik to DMZ to Ramadanman in an hour (pretty sure ADD might have something to do with that) I find the same problem in most new listeners of dubstep nowdays they have no idea or for that matter care to know the history of dubstep let alone give props to them producers that have come before that is the disgrace to me the lack of knowledge of genre that is less than a decade old.

agree with the posts quoted above me, but just wanted to add that i don't see any real emotion put into skrillex' music. it's just below-average "filthy" dubstep with cliché emo vocals on top of it. it's like nailing a (mediocre and stereotypical) dog onto a (mediocre and stereotypical) dolphin and claiming it's a new species.

also the production isn't good. not at all. he shouldve sticked with the electro house remixes but i guess scene kids didnt like that enough :wink:

What's wrong with his production?

just because it has energy doesn't mean it doesn't have emotion.

If you think his filth is below average, I can give you some youtube links....

scene-metal-whatever you call it has a lot in common with "filth". Bassnectar is another artist who came from a metal background. It's a very natural progression.

ok, didnt know of his album release. there the production is solid.
but for example that "with your friends" is just... cheesy, "cute" (in the way some japanese anime girl with eyes like watermelons is supposed to be cute)... not my cup of tea.
and i can't PROVE why i think his music is not "emotional" in an honest way, it's just the way that i feel about it.
but as you mentioned scene-metal-whatever, let me just use that as a metaphor as that's music i used to feel really passionate about in the past.



i don't expect people to like this song, and that's okay. i do like it, the part at 1:00 hits me everytime and it's ridiculously fun to dance/jump around/mosh to it with dozens of people in a tiny space. that being said, it's not exactly accessible (mathcore bands take pride in that :roll: ) so i understand if people don't feel it.
but no matter how you liked it, you'll see the difference to the next video.



this one's better produced, has a blonde chick in the video and is heavier AND more melodic at the same time. but it's just plastic, fake, cardboard-cutout "emo". the fact that the band dont even take themselves seriously just adds to that.
it's a song with decent heavy riffs, decent screaming, decent melodic singing and cliché emo lyrics. and then they just stick some autotune techno into it and give it a funny name and do crabcore dance routines in the video. now is that supposed to be honest emotional music? that means a lot to the musicians? that's supposed to engage us, make us feel something?
it's a frankenstein thing, the single parts might be good and fit together but the living spark is missing.

and thats how i personally feel about skrillex' music. frankenstein music. artificial emotion.

EDIT: i do like bmth, by the way. so it's not that i don't like properly produced sellout music per se :wink:
