    LOL I haven't been to anything with Drum N Bass on the lineup in LONG time (Coachella was my first event that had ANY EDM at it in roughly six years) and it's funny that people STILL bitch about MC's today. I could go either way depending on my mood.

    When I was on narcotics, anything sounded good... except Happy Hardcore.

    Oh yeah... that's EVERY dubstep track.
    I'm kinda curious to know what artists you are referring to when you state that every track sounds the same.

    People are gonna continue to bitch about mc's because they fucking suck.

    Every track sounds the same in the sense that there are very little dub-step artists that have like a distinct sound. For example, if I hear any EDM songs in that I am listening to for the first time I can usually make an educated and accurate guess as to which artist it is. With Dub-Step I dont know which track is by whoever the fuck.
    Also, have you ever even tried describing a dub-step song to someone? See if you can do that.

    Dont really know if anyone feels the same way bout this though, juss my opinion

    nah maybe i just listen to too much dubstep. i can tell what artist is what but to each their own. describing it tho is tough, ha ha
    the music is what its all about, you love it just like i love it.

    For someone who can accurately guess what EDM artist they are listening to when a track drops for the first time I find it shocking that you can't tell the difference between Burial, Scuba, Boxcutter, Kryptic Minds, and Digital Mystikz. They each have very distinct sounds, IMO.

    2-step rhythm, syncopated beats, minimal-dark textures, manipulated vocals, haunting, garage influence, deep dark bassline - this isn't so hard, guys. There's a lot of shit out there aside from a robot banging a sub.

    You should describe a High Contrast track to me.

    Obviously, if we were to analyze the intricacies of any music we can find the differences between artists, tracks, styles, etc. BUT, I find the basic sound-structure of dubstep to be so overpowering compared to the rest of what's going on in the track that it drowns it out and it all virtually sounds the same to me.

    It's the same thing with different types of hardcore to me (with the exception of happy, which makes me understand why people commit suicide).

    As I said, I dont listen to the genre enough, so thats the primary problem with me. Hell I dont even know any of those artists you just named me except for Kryptic Minds. However, tts only a matter of time before it breaks in with me because you just cant escape dub-step these days. That being said, for the time being I think it sucks and has no soul backing it.

    Zeds Dead stands out too me as the best dub-step artists, and they do more than dub-step.

    its fucking bomb

    I mean its hard to describe over a computer, but if we were blazing in the cut and u put on a High Contrast song or a Nu:Tone song that I havent heard I would probably be able to guess it. Something with the melodies they use.

    I always thought that genre was more of a joke. I was shocked when I encountered people that actually like that shit. You probably have to be on a grip of meth for it to click

    Does that not sound like every other fucking dub-step song ever?

    I have even heard Skream songs I like but this was just an example of what im tryin to say

    This goes for any genre.* Especially a genre that a person doesn't know well or doesn't want to know. The wobble is what's getting fame, Rusko = Deadmau5 = Tiesto. I'm sure there's plenty of good house out there, but it doesn't get the playtime that deadmau5 does. And I'm sure there's decent trance somewhere, but it doesn't get the Tiesto fame.

    know what I'm sayin?

    Dubstep has plenty of gems, its just a matter of finding them.


    *for instance, i couldn't recognize a certain metal song or a certain artist by their sound, or tell you who's "good" and who's not. not because metal is bad to me necessarily (although, I do have a distaste for a lot I've heard), it's just because i'm not familiar, so a lot of it sounds similar.

    Let's not derail this thread with banter about dubstep, because that conversation never really comes to a compromise if people make generalizations and stick to them.

    SIGNED I would love to see any of the artists from H.R.

    I am sure there is some good dubstep, but any time someone tries to introduce me to something "different", it all just ends up sounding the same.

    I listened to both Skream and kode9 and it did very little to make me believe it's anything "better" or "different" than what I am hearing from people like Rusko.

    and thats why I love saying I dis-like a specified genre. Because though it may make me look like a close-minded imbecile, it encourages true music fans to throw tracks at me until I change my mind. So send em my way I say!

    My favorite description of drum & bass I have ever heard was Transformers having sex.

    I think what he means is that the description was used to describe dnb and Datsik is not dnb and in addition to not being a dnb artist he sucks.

    i understood what he meant. my original reply was intended to show i feel datsik's output as an artist more accurately reflected the statement. i don't recall making any kind of link between datsik and "drum and bass" other than the description's original usage. *shrug*

    breaking news to me will be dates and locations. some of us were pretty certain of spring time shows for HC. He will be at either Beyond or Coachella.
