it's interesting to me that this turd got booked, because there are some amazing, beautiful, deep dubstep acts this year.

So I am not a dub-step head. I heard Skrillex's shit and I thought "wow this guy sounds different, I kinda like him." I made a FB status about it and it attracted attention from all the old school dub heads on my friends list, needless to say they didnt like what I had too say. I didnt understand this, along comes a guy that doesnt sound like every other fucking dub-step artist and he gets all this hate.... then I heard Skrillex at a party. Seeing the people that reacted positively to him completely changed my perspective. His fans are such tools. Not too mention his music isn't fucking danceable at all. All the girls stopped grinding and just started dancing awkardley shouting "yeeeaaa Skrillex!". I did not like this

Needless too say, I am no longer a fan

Well that's a silly reason to dislike an artist. Either way though, it brought you to the right conclusion.

Honestly, this guy is so bad I'd rather watch him perform in his original band. For those who know what his original band was, you realize how big of a statement that is.

So I thought his music was shitty because of an incorrect label?? No, I thought his music was shitty because it was thoroughly unlistenable, cacophonous yet uninteresting, and essentially was like rubbing my inner ear canal against a cheese grater. That was shit. And it depresses me, as an old school raver, that THIS is considered popular now. WTF is wrong with people.

I bet he draws a huge crowd.

He does... it's disgusting. I went to this dubstep event in Portland last week to see Egyptrixx and Craze, and since Skrillex was also there the whole bloody place sold out in the blink of an eye.

I could tell almost no one had heard of any other song that got played that night other than Skrillex's set. It was very, very depressing.

I have to admit though, he's a crowd pleaser... To the most undesirable type of crowd. Hopefully we don't get too many of those types this year but that's really wishful thinking :P

Wow...you're a dumbass. Did I say I went to just see him? Isn't it possible that I went to an event or club night to go see a certain artist and Skrillex happened to be on the bill as well? So since I'm going to Coachella and Skrillex is on the lineup I guess I will be stepping on the same pile of shit for a third time??? You do realize that this makes you look like a bit of an idiot.

Why do you need to defend your music if you like how it sounds? I don't know ... the few videos that I've seen of him online and the music I've listened to have failed to spark a genuine interest. Nevertheless I'll still probably catch his set depending who else is playing at the time. :rolleyes

Honestly though, if Mau5 and his cohorts are actually bringing electric music to higher states of popularity, the better underground DJ's will also benefit from this. Basically my point is, every genre of music has the garbage that somehow is bigger than anything else, but sometimes these artists actually build a genre up so the nubs eventually get bored of them and discover the heady acts and are no longer nubs.

Everyone here listened to shitty music at some point in their life.... Korn was the act I wanted to see heading up to Woodstock 99, that experience pretty much changed my life and my musical tastes at the tender age of 15.

I don't know if you have noticed, but most "DJs" do what Skrillex does. They make songs, then when it comes to playing them live, they press play and act like they're awesome, and barely do anything.

This really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

01-23-2011, 12:19 PM
not only is skrillex's "dj set" totally bro'd out, his gimmick is to pretend that there is something wrong with the equipment EVERY TIME. the sound will cut out and he will act like he doesn't know what's happening.

aside from this, skrillex will undoubtedly play "father said" and he will break coachella (in the most awful way you can think of).

But I will say that Skrillex needs to lay off the dubstep & go back to Electro House. That "No Mercy, Only Violence" track is alright. He might redeem himself if he sticks to E-House.

I don't know if you have noticed, but most "DJs" do what Skrillex does. They make songs, then when it comes to playing them live, they press play and act like they're awesome, and barely do anything.

This really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

Lol. Go watch good DJ's?

This guy is going to be at Coachella and got billed way below Skrillex. Will also mostly likely not have a very large crowd.

Actually Daedelus is billed higher on his day.

I agree with you though, between Skrillex, Excision, Breakage, Jakes, Caspa and 12th Planet there is some truly dreadful "dubstep" at Coachella this year.

Luckily it should be easy to avoid. I'm very much looking forward to Nosaj Thing, Daedelus, Mount Kimbie, Tokimonsta, Joy Orbison and High Contrast.

Oh, I know they aren't. I was just listing some of the other down-tempo or similar electronic acts that I'm looking forward to.

Shit, I remember when what people considered dubstep sounded absolutely NOTHING like what is considered dubstep now. It's crazy how much it has changed (almost entirely for the worst).

I don't think Jakes or Breakage deserve to be on the same list as Skrillex and Excision. A lot of Jakes stuff is rough but like he said in the Radio 1 vid his music has swagger.... his riddims have soul even when they are hard. As for Breakage, he's made nuff heavyweight contributions, a DnB vet before dubstep... I'd challenge you to show me more bad Breakage tunes than I can show you good ones. "Together" is a classic...

As for Caspa, his contribution to the sound can't be ignored (rubber chicken was pretty influential when it first came out, and Dub Police has put out some of the biggest tunes in the cannon) but he hasn't put out anything good since Victoria's Secret, and that tune is mostly D1...

Skrillex is just a watered down derivative, a cheap imitation. People, if you like this sound, go for the real thing. Study up on Coki.

Honestly, I just hate anything with a wobble. Just my personal taste. If dubstep means anything with a wobble, then I guess I hate dubstep. I don't know if that's correct though. I don't listen to a lot of that stuff. It's gross.

It's almost gotten to the point where when people ask me what I play, I'm reluctant to say the word dubstep, because this kind of bullshit is what they think I'm talking about. And they wouldn't recognize a tune like Lean Forward or Anti-war Dub as even being dubstep anyway.

Some people think it's pretentious to use the term "bass music" but if Skrillex is dubstep then I like bass music.

"A: All this talk about dubstep vs. brostep is crazy. I have been listening to dubstep the last couple of months and following some discussions here and on other forums, and it feels like I've traveled back to the 90's when I used to listen to hiphop and got into heated arguments about mainstream vs. underground shit. Which, looking back at it, was fucking stupid.

B: Agreed, except replace months with years and hip hop with punk rock. The term brostep is so pejorative. I hate it. I understand the distinction dubstep purists are making but come on. I think the term dubstep has evolved beyond the original definition and while that doesn't mean you can't point out that initially the dubstep "sound" was something different, it does mean you should stop being elitist dicks about it."

So how about that? I read the title of this thread in shock. I'm new to the message boards and sort of didn't know what to expect, but how can you people be such dicks? I don't expect the message boards to reflect Coachella's fanbase, or Coachella's electro fanbase for that matter, but with comments like this:


I bet you also rock skinny jeans and like to snort coke on a regular basis, don't you?


Now you know. His shyte was in the top ten on beatport for a minute... whatta travesty. Notice his conspicuous absence from my "do you like bass" thread. This ain't bass music, it's midrange power tool noises.


Yep. The Holocaust pales in comparison to him and his productions. A landmark tragedy in EDM history.


Skrillex represents everything that sucks about music.


I didn't come here to begin to believe that Coachella go-ers are small-minded assholes who belittle people for enjoying a certain type of music, and marginalizing them as dick-heads or "bros" with poor taste. Do you guys plan on approaching Skrillex fans at the Sahara tent and continuing your oh so clever ass remarks about how he isn't "dubstep" and how is music is shit? Because he may be their first electro artist and ENJOY his FUCKING MUSIC? Or do you plan drifting behind the walls of the internet on your keyboard and continue ridiculing his fans and Skrillex himself?

Who the fuck are you to call him a horrible? Since when did the message boards turn into a fucking circlejerk to see who can come up with the wittiest comment or post the most ridiculous and degrading picture? And if I didn't get the memo, I apologize, but is the purpose of the lineup threads to ruthlessly fucking deteriorate an artists reputation and reputability?

Understand something: people listen to music for different purposes. Electronic music is evolving and is begin to find influence from different genres. I don't only speak for myself when I say that I listen to Skrillex (or any other electro artist) because his/her music is well produced. I will admit, there are a lot of what you guys are calling "brostep" tracks and productions that lack tremendous taste and basic finesse. A lot of them just sound amateur in their mixing and mastering and are difficult to listen to. On the same note, a lot of utterly filthy tracks are incredibly well made and sound amazing. People like them. Personally, I love the sound and feeling of filthy dubstep live because the bass feels great and it allows me to get in touch with my animal instincts. On top of the basic fact that I LIKE HIS FUCKING MUSIC. Others, I'm sure, have their reasons for loving the music.. just as any fan of any artist enjoys his/their music. And for fuck's sake, there is no such thing as brostep. "Fuck you and everyone who perpetuates this fucking ridiculous made-up sub-sub-genrefication. As if other electronic music communities needed any more fodder against bassheads, we go and willingly prefix "bro" onto our music."

Skrillex may be a new producer who started only two years ago, but that doesn't make him a bad artist. You might argue that he doesn't have the full knowledge that somebody who's been making music for longer. And you know what, you're right. Maybe he doesn't. Regardless, people like the guy and what he's doing. If his music wasn't well produced or bearable, he would not have sold as many records/tracks as he did. If you hate him, don't fucking go see him. If you absolutely can't stand the fact that he's part of the lineup, I'm so fucking sorry...i hope someone gives you those 1-2 hours of your life back that you probably wouldn't have spent seeing him anyway.

TL;DR: show some fucking respect. and yes, I'm fucking mad, bro.

and you picked this song to try and convince us that Skrillex isn't complete crap? it sounds like the theme song of Final Fantasy with some chipmunk/robot vocals on top, then we get a "bassline" a little over 4 minutes into the song.

He is living out his dream of creating music and playing shows (which are selling out all over the world) and topping beatport as well as other music download vehicles. I don't think he is the greatest ever or that every song he has ever done is amazing, but he has put out a lot of solid tracks in a short period of time and caught the attention and support of some of the biggest names in EDM as a result.

I also think he is stacks better than datsik, excision and boregore as they lack the range that skrillex has.

Blah blah blah. As a community of music fans, we have to call it how it is. Skrillex fucking blows. People who are A)Dumb B)Deaf C)Ignorant and/or D)Just have shitty tastes in particular like this shit. I wouldn't mind and in fact would welcome any snide remarks about how I used to like Linkin Park.Then again, I was 12 and didn't know any better.

I made a remix about 5 years ago of a song. I liked it then. But anybody else who would have listened to it said it sucked balls (except Skrillex fans, I am absolutely positive of this), and it wasn't until I stumbled upon it on my computer that I realized it's God fucking awful. Would I want anyone to respect the fact that I spent hours on that garbage? No, because shit is shit, no matter how you try to justify it.

He has made some bass heavy dubstep like in for the kill remix and scary monsters.. more grimey electro like "my name is skrillex.. drum and bass songs like "scatta" or "where is light and what is laughter" also sings on some tracks "father said" etc etc


granted, he has a brand of sound that permeates through all of his songs but you have to admit that he has more range compared to datsik or excision who pump out 2 hour sets of strait robot dubstep

on some real shit, he does do different shit. Before I knew who this guy was and what he is about people struggled to describe him properly too me. They would say he is dub-step but not, but electro, but more dubby.

I mean he doesnt rely on solely bass to impress his tool fanbase. He does use melody (which is more than what I can say for 95% of dub-step artists), and puts the womps to house(ish) tempos here and there.

He has made some bass heavy dubstep like in for the kill remix and scary monsters.. more grimey electro like "my name is skrillex.. drum and bass songs like "scatta" or "where is light and what is laughter" also sings on some tracks "father said" etc etc


right, cause this is totally drum and bass

^^^ the argument is about how Skrillex is more eclectic than your average dubby artist. The fact that that song has heavy hip-hop elements is only helping his argument.

Edit: wanna make it clear im not a Skrillex fan, but ill pay credit where its due

I wasn't arguing over Skrillex's musical "range". It's true, he makes shitty music in several different genres. Just pointing out that that "Scatta" garbage is NOT drum and bass, not even close.

they are good in small doses. I like their tracks mixed into other dj's sets.. but 2 hours of robot is a little excessive.. if you can listen to the entire shambala sets and not get a headache i applaud your tenacity

i don't think i've listened to "robotstep" for more than 30 minutes tops. tops.

"A: All this talk about dubstep vs. brostep is crazy. I have been listening to dubstep the last couple of months and following some discussions here and on other forums, and it feels like I've traveled back to the 90's when I used to listen to hiphop and got into heated arguments about mainstream vs. underground shit. Which, looking back at it, was fucking stupid.

B: Agreed, except replace months with years and hip hop with punk rock. The term brostep is so pejorative. I hate it. I understand the distinction dubstep purists are making but come on. I think the term dubstep has evolved beyond the original definition and while that doesn't mean you can't point out that initially the dubstep "sound" was something different, it does mean you should stop being elitist dicks about it."

So how about that? I read the title of this thread in shock. I'm new to the message boards and sort of didn't know what to expect, but how can you people be such dicks? I don't expect the message boards to reflect Coachella's fanbase, or Coachella's electro fanbase for that matter, but with comments like this:










I didn't come here to begin to believe that Coachella go-ers are small-minded assholes who belittle people for enjoying a certain type of music, and marginalizing them as dick-heads or "bros" with poor taste. Do you guys plan on approaching Skrillex fans at the Sahara tent and continuing your oh so clever ass remarks about how he isn't "dubstep" and how is music is shit? Because he may be their first electro artist and ENJOY his FUCKING MUSIC? Or do you plan drifting behind the walls of the internet on your keyboard and continue ridiculing his fans and Skrillex himself?

Who the fuck are you to call him a horrible? Since when did the message boards turn into a fucking circlejerk to see who can come up with the wittiest comment or post the most ridiculous and degrading picture? And if I didn't get the memo, I apologize, but is the purpose of the lineup threads to ruthlessly fucking deteriorate an artists reputation and reputability?

Understand something: people listen to music for different purposes. Electronic music is evolving and is begin to find influence from different genres. I don't only speak for myself when I say that I listen to Skrillex (or any other electro artist) because his/her music is well produced. I will admit, there are a lot of what you guys are calling "brostep" tracks and productions that lack tremendous taste and basic finesse. A lot of them just sound amateur in their mixing and mastering and are difficult to listen to. On the same note, a lot of utterly filthy tracks are incredibly well made and sound amazing. People like them. Personally, I love the sound and feeling of filthy dubstep live because the bass feels great and it allows me to get in touch with my animal instincts. On top of the basic fact that I LIKE HIS FUCKING MUSIC. Others, I'm sure, have their reasons for loving the music.. just as any fan of any artist enjoys his/their music. And for fuck's sake, there is no such thing as brostep. "Fuck you and everyone who perpetuates this fucking ridiculous made-up sub-sub-genrefication. As if other electronic music communities needed any more fodder against bassheads, we go and willingly prefix "bro" onto our music."

Skrillex may be a new producer who started only two years ago, but that doesn't make him a bad artist. You might argue that he doesn't have the full knowledge that somebody who's been making music for longer. And you know what, you're right. Maybe he doesn't. Regardless, people like the guy and what he's doing. If his music wasn't well produced or bearable, he would not have sold as many records/tracks as he did. If you hate him, don't fucking go see him. If you absolutely can't stand the fact that he's part of the lineup, I'm so fucking sorry...i hope someone gives you those 1-2 hours of your life back that you probably wouldn't have spent seeing him anyway.

TL;DR: show some fucking respect. and yes, I'm fucking mad, bro.

I read this post then called my reverend to tell him about it and so he read it. In turn, he read it aloud to the the congregation this morning during the sermon. Him and the whole congregation here in Ville Platte, Louisiana think you might be involved in illegal drugs like ecstacy. Skrillex fans are usually on those he says. So watch out, you electro drugger! The police are on you now, big boy!

The thing is when people play dub-step its usually not the melodic ones, though clearly they are out there. I heard that Skream song a while back and there first thing that came to my head was "why arent all those dub-step tools playing this shit? Its soooo goood." I guess its gotta be wobble heavy to get airtime by bro's and stupid CO sluts .

Welcome but you obviously are not new to the internets. This is an outlet where many of us discuss music nonstop. Notice there is nobody completely backing Skrillex up? That is because music heads think he is complete shit.


Do you guys plan on approaching Skrillex fans at the Sahara tent and continuing your oh so clever ass remarks about how he isn't "dubstep" and how is music is shit?
Why in the world would we do that? We will be at a different stage checking out better music. That is why we talk the shit here.


Since when did the message boards turn into a fucking circlejerk to see who can come up with the wittiest comment or post the most ridiculous and degrading picture?
You already admitted to be new around here, correct? Shit like this has always happened.


Blah blah blah. As a community of music fans, we have to call it how it is. Skrillex fucking blows. People who are A)Dumb B)Deaf C)Ignorant and/or D)Just have shitty tastes in particular like this shit. I wouldn't mind and in fact would welcome any snide remarks about how I used to like Linkin Park.Then again, I was 12 and didn't know any better.

I will not respect music that sucks as hard as this shit, no matter what.

I don't know if you have noticed, but most "DJs" do what Skrillex does. They make songs, then when it comes to playing them live, they press play and act like they're awesome, and barely do anything.

This really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

Dude. This is exactly what Bassnectar does and everything thinks his "live" sets are awesome. I've seen his ableton set with my own eyeballs. He just presses play, the entire set plays out pre-programmed and he just fiddles with knobs the ENTIRE set.

"A: All this talk about dubstep vs. brostep is crazy. I have been listening to dubstep the last couple of months and following some discussions here and on other forums, and it feels like I've traveled back to the 90's when I used to listen to hiphop and got into heated arguments about mainstream vs. underground shit. Which, looking back at it, was fucking stupid.

B: Agreed, except replace months with years and hip hop with punk rock. The term brostep is so pejorative. I hate it. I understand the distinction dubstep purists are making but come on. I think the term dubstep has evolved beyond the original definition and while that doesn't mean you can't point out that initially the dubstep "sound" was something different, it does mean you should stop being elitist dicks about it."

So how about that? I read the title of this thread in shock. I'm new to the message boards and sort of didn't know what to expect, but how can you people be such dicks? I don't expect the message boards to reflect Coachella's fanbase, or Coachella's electro fanbase for that matter, but with comments like this:










I didn't come here to begin to believe that Coachella go-ers are small-minded assholes who belittle people for enjoying a certain type of music, and marginalizing them as dick-heads or "bros" with poor taste. Do you guys plan on approaching Skrillex fans at the Sahara tent and continuing your oh so clever ass remarks about how he isn't "dubstep" and how is music is shit? Because he may be their first electro artist and ENJOY his FUCKING MUSIC? Or do you plan drifting behind the walls of the internet on your keyboard and continue ridiculing his fans and Skrillex himself?

Who the fuck are you to call him a horrible? Since when did the message boards turn into a fucking circlejerk to see who can come up with the wittiest comment or post the most ridiculous and degrading picture? And if I didn't get the memo, I apologize, but is the purpose of the lineup threads to ruthlessly fucking deteriorate an artists reputation and reputability?

Understand something: people listen to music for different purposes. Electronic music is evolving and is begin to find influence from different genres. I don't only speak for myself when I say that I listen to Skrillex (or any other electro artist) because his/her music is well produced. I will admit, there are a lot of what you guys are calling "brostep" tracks and productions that lack tremendous taste and basic finesse. A lot of them just sound amateur in their mixing and mastering and are difficult to listen to. On the same note, a lot of utterly filthy tracks are incredibly well made and sound amazing. People like them. Personally, I love the sound and feeling of filthy dubstep live because the bass feels great and it allows me to get in touch with my animal instincts. On top of the basic fact that I LIKE HIS FUCKING MUSIC. Others, I'm sure, have their reasons for loving the music.. just as any fan of any artist enjoys his/their music. And for fuck's sake, there is no such thing as brostep. "Fuck you and everyone who perpetuates this fucking ridiculous made-up sub-sub-genrefication. As if other electronic music communities needed any more fodder against bassheads, we go and willingly prefix "bro" onto our music."

Skrillex may be a new producer who started only two years ago, but that doesn't make him a bad artist. You might argue that he doesn't have the full knowledge that somebody who's been making music for longer. And you know what, you're right. Maybe he doesn't. Regardless, people like the guy and what he's doing. If his music wasn't well produced or bearable, he would not have sold as many records/tracks as he did. If you hate him, don't fucking go see him. If you absolutely can't stand the fact that he's part of the lineup, I'm so fucking sorry...i hope someone gives you those 1-2 hours of your life back that you probably wouldn't have spent seeing him anyway.

TL;DR: show some fucking respect. and yes, I'm fucking mad, bro.

People forget or just dont know Skrillex's roots. He was the lead singer for a relatively successful emo/skreamo group called From First to Last. I think this explains his poppy melodies. I don't think he's trying to be some dub-purist. He's just doing something in the same style he's always done and it happens to appeal broader demographic From First to Last probably was hated by metal-purists too. I think skrillex is genuine.

for the life of me I don't understand why Mary Anne Hobbs is going to coachella. She's a radio DJ, not a producer. Granted she plays a lot of good stuff, but she's basically a mp3 blog. Why does coachella waste a slot that could have been used for someone actually making the music that Hobbs is going to play?
i'd really like it if she followed me around all weekend and spoke directly into my ear, though.

i was at the sf show on saturday. it wasnt as bad as your friend told you, but it was hot and crowded. oversold in my opinion. with that said, i had a good time and was surprised by some of the openers

by unbearable they meant the type of crowd, not the size of it. a bunch of young agro kids. Were you one of them?

Mary Anne is a legend dude. She was the first BBC radio DJ to feature dubstep on her show, and she has been absolutely instrumental in the proliferation and progression of the sound. She may not produce, but her thumbprint on the music is indelible. She is an excellent DJ with impeccable taste. GV made an smart move booking her. She's worth 100 Skrillex's thats for fucking sure.

nobody will argue that she will be more entertaining than than skrillex.
I've been listening to her show for years. I know what she's about, you don't need to educate me on her. I've seen her play in SF. It's like a dubstep "best of" set. She is playing other people's music. By definition, it is NOT her thumbprint on any of it. This is all fine for a club in a city somewhere, but it would have been more appropriate to bring an actual producing artist out there to play something original.

you really can't argue this with "she's got good taste". ya we know.
