    dubstep belongs nowhere near the sahara. maybe in the parking lot.

    "Push this on us"? You do realize that Dubstep is probably one of the most interesting and forward-thinking genres around right now, right? And it's only getting more popular worldwide. The fact that you see Dubstep producers touted around here so often these days is testament to that.

    Also, crazzz, why shouldn't it be in the Sahara? Do you not think it's suitable "dance" music or something? Is it not Ed Banger-y enough for you?

    Isn't Drop the Lime considered Dubstep?

    Some of it. Most of his recent production is more Bassline & Fidget (ever since he stopped making Breakcore everything he's done has been pretty much based on whatever's popular in the UK at the time), but he did have some singles out in 06/07 that were straight up Dubstep. I haven't seen one of his sets in a while, though, so I can't comment on how he is live.

    Happy to hear that The Bug is confirmed. Given all the hype this year I'm not really surprised that he's Coachella's first Dubstep pick.

    exactly. it's fucking everywhere, and it's the same shit. only a few producers are trying to innovate and make interesting dubstep. 90% of them are stuck with the same thing since 2004.

    no wonder early dubstep producers wanted to keep this on vinyl only.

    i'm down for The Bug... but i'd really like some more DnB, and IDM...

    ...i'd also like some hardcore techno, but i guess the sahara is too pussy for that...

    Same as every other genre. It's inevitable, and as long as there's still that 10% I'm happy.

    yeah, why not bring the interesting 10% then? and like robotron said, alot of dnb, house, and related forms of EDM have the same issue with 90% being boring and unoriginal, but its the 10% that keeps us in love with said genre. so i don't see why there is so much hate for dubstep for a reason that can be said about almost any other genre

    nobody here hates dubstep, but don't create another thread about it.

    the genre has been overhyped. that's why there are tons of dubstep djs out there now playing crap. and well, 'scenesters' buy that crap. but yeah, there are some good artists out there too and i hope they remain once this hype wears off. 2 hrs dubstep sets won't work in the sahara though. i'd like to see it in the dome, but that's me. it's good to see it's been merging with other (sub)genres though.

    what do you mean by good? hyperdub-type-of-label djs? there are some local parties around here, and some of them have been pretty decent. from the known ones i've seen bassnectar playing some dubstep, hatcha, caspa and i think that's about it.

    By good I mean good. Bassnectar is good... saw Hatcha in Denver a while back, super killer... I'd imagine Caspa lays it down as well.

    It would be cool if some of these promoters would take an interest in some of the more interesting, diverse cats making tunes right now, like Starkey or Martyn

    I've seen Kode9, The Bug, Starkey, Mathhead, 6blocc, and a few others that have slipped my mind at the moment (those are probably the biggest names I've seen anyway). Also seen some Dubstep-inspired sets by DJs outside the scene. Flying Lotus, Ghislain Poirier, etc.

    Anyway, I don't think it's really correct to level all those complaints at Dubstep specifically, orbit. Yes, they're all problems that the scene faces, but once again, what genre hasn't been massively overhyped and overplayed at one point? Or have a shit ton of terrible producers compared to good ones? Or tons of scenesters buying into it?

    Also, two hours with the right DJ could be good. I'd never expect a packed tent, but I think a Dubstep set in the middle of the day before all the big names go on sounds like fun.

    thymeless is a rasta bar a block from my house. they've got a 20,000 watt sound system... in a bar. allen&heath xone92 in the dj booth, 18 inch and folded horn subs, and they do dubstep night every wednesday. (other days of the week are reggae, dub, dancehall, etc). I don't now any of the DJs names because they're all locals, but they're always really fucking good.
