    Dumbass.
    Went on youtube and just picked the first song by Skream


    First song I found by Distance


    If you call this shit melodies, you have no idea what music is. Go back to your coloring books, once ur in college u can take music appreciation. Doubt a dipshit like you will pass but at least it may teach you a thing or two.... though that song by Distance does have a nice squeaking sounds it uses for the first 40 seconds

    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.

    Regardless of genre I think we can all agree that song is terrible.

    16 Bit is awesome... But like I said.. Variety is key.. I think a good set has range and flow.. not a hour long rape of your ears.. gotta slow things down then build up tension to accentuate the drops

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!

    Toolbag, here's some Skream and Distance tracks that have melody.





    Recent Distance


    And some melodic stuff from Scuba:

    ^^^fashow... I generalize, it happens. I just picked the first songs that came up. I am not gonna siphon through a whole artists catalog so I can prove myself wrong. I just went on youtube and picked shit.

    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 .

    I sure wish the Chemical Brothers would dabble into dubstep.

    I bet it would sound similar to this classic:

    Obviously, if you feel the need to ask.

    Skrillex does not even have 1/10th of the skill that Skream has.

    Easy now friends... lol can't believe this guy has actually provoked people to defend him while simultaneously ridiculing someone like Distance? That's honestly so backwards its laughable. Man like Distance run this sound for years. To compare his production value to an amateur like Skrillex, not to mention DJing skill, is so blatantly ignorant it makes me kind of sad.

    YES. Especially that Skream track. ANYTHING Skream has a 1000000238oefafuck times better production value than any Skrillex track.

    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.

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.

    and Mittens always says it better than I ever can.

    edit: this thread is much more entertaining with Skrillex fans posting. Are there any more that can join the fun?
