There is good dubstep, but it doesn't sound anything like Skrillex. Skrillex is just bullshit.
TheDevilsDictionary
I have read this comment so many times and in so many places I have started mindlessly repeating it without really having listened to any "good dubstep". I am putting a lot of faith in you and your ilk that this is a true statement.

but is it good dubstep...is it really...

I dont know man all of these "x's react" are pretty amazingly dull. a bunch of olds/youngs/bads overact to whatever stupid thing and vomit up boring answers. also I'm pretty sure this is already on here. also skrillex is a vamp

Dubstep was originally British music critspeak for the genre of urban post-jungle/post-UK garage downtempo (ambient w/ beats) for which artists like Burial and Shackleton are still lauded.

American "dubstep" is rooted in the UK subgenre of "filthstep", the dirty sawtooth bass of artists like Boregore or Trolley Snatcha. Entirely different production tools and goals.

I happened to like filthstep when I first heard it in early '09, and the American dubstep like Skrillex is still interesting (though this electronic music genre, like most of them save minimal house, is subject to diminishing returns). Its a pity its the frat-boy approved rap-metal of 2012, but that's not the genre envelope's fault.

This informative video tells me that Dubstep dates back to 1998, which finally clears up why it don't sound like anything new to me. It's still shitty music though. Not "OMG THE ANTICHRIST" bad, just mediocre, shitty techno.

What Godot said.

Except fr the part about Skrillex having any redeeming qualities.

Dubstep isn't techno.

Adham Nu'man
If it goes bleep bloop it's techno.

Hey guiz I heard only "hipsters" listen to "dubstep" can we talk about what these words mean some more?

StanleyPain
It's always funny when retards who listen to nothing but complete shit go through that brief phase where they realize there are sounds out there totally different than what they are used to, but since they're shallow fucktards with no real interest in music (except how it makes them look to others) they latch on to the first shit thing that comes along that slightly takes them out of their bubble. Then, soon afterwards, they abandon it.

OH HEY, KEYBOARDS CAN DO THINGS OTHER THAN MAKE GENERIC HIP HOP BEATS IF YOU ACTUALLY TOUCH THE OTHER KNOBS AND BUTTONS!!! Well anyway......

This is like that "songs with guitar solos aren't metal" thing that went around for twenty years.

'It might be good for younger people, but for old people, they might die.'

'I'd rather my kids listen to this than Justin Bieber' Amen.

The guy in the yellow shirt with sunglasses on his head who says "might sound good if you were really stoned" seems most in touch.

Good fucking god, I was happier before I knew such music existed.

I'm officially old because I've never heard of this Skittlex. Now I have to go walk in the snow back to my cabin and milk the cow.

And who's this Gogo Lady on the news and why is she wearing getups? Is she a burlesque dancer or somethin?

Not rating a second-reference video.
Not a hipster either. I'm boring and I have a really tiring dayjob.

But I like -some- dubstep or whatever you want to call it. The stuff I like is being called "chillstep" and if you want an artist to look into for some examples look up "rameses b."

I find all this music in the EDM room in plug.dj which is an accessible route to finding new music of this sort.

Don't judge a genre unless you give it a fair shot.

I'll be sure to listen to more Katy Perry before I diss autotune again.

dek863
Yeah, because we know that the people at poe dont generalize all Republicans on the basis of crazy videos.

Simillion
Nothing wrong with generalizing. A lot of is crap. Often you're listening to a "dubstep" song and for the first minute you think, "Hey, this sounds cool." And then the beat "drops" and suddenly you're listening to the same shit you've heard a thousand times.

But some of it really is good and isn't just rehashed skrillex. I'm just saying if you don't bother looking, you're missing out on some good music. It's not the end of the world either. It's just music.

If we could only go back in time when the radio only had Edison reciting the alphabet.
Robin Kestrel
I do like that "Bangarang" song, but I don't think I could take an album of the stuff.
chairsforcheap
HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Also, I was in college when Mr. Skrillex was born. I guess that makes me an elder.
