    The best part is that this is a remix he made. So I think it's reasonable to say that just playing the track is an acceptable way of releasing it. I don't think he has to go crazy with his mixing skills on the songs maiden voyage.

    tl;dr DJ you don't like enjoying what they do. U REAL MAD BRO.

    Matt you came into the EDM genre after the rave scene in Tucson died off so you really haven't missed anything worthwhile. Sure, there are a few parties here and there but nothing like it used to be. I am not trying to be that "It was awesome because it was old school" guy, but the "rave" scene in Tucson used to actually be pretty good considering the size of the town.

    The problem was (and still is) that (good and/or rare) EDM acts are too expensive for a Tucson weekend event. You will never see a Sasha, John Digweed, The Chems, Underworld or anyone of that stature in Tucson unless its a one-off show on a Wednesday or Thursday night at the Rialto. They charge too much money and don't have enough of a draw in a town like this.

    Instead, you will get tons of club/Rialto events with artists like Christopher Lawrence (who plays Arizona like 20 times a year it seems) or Steve Aoki.

    As for Kenny's happy hardcore reference. I was unaware people still booked Happycore DJ's in Arizona, but then again I haven't been to an Arizona party since like 2004.

    Dude is a good producer and a mediocre DJ, but there's not much money in just making music. I can't say I like his crowd, but his stuff isn't bad at all.

    I moved to Tucson from Sacramento back in 1999 and didn't consistently go to AZ parties until the middle of 2000. Before then, my party experience consisted of a couple of underground/ warehouse parties in the sac/bay area.

    By the time I got to AZ, Markus Schulz was doing bigger events. I can only recall one or two parties he played at when I was going between 2000-04. He was doing spot gigs in Phoenix area clubs, but not too much.

    yes some people do. He's nice personally, but a douche professionally, and that's not even the issue. Skrillex may be the sweetest guy on the planet. That has nothing to do with it.

    However we have no evidence thus far that his production has any more than that half-dimension. Meanwhile bassnectar has a long history of relatively diverse music (compared to skrillex), even if happens to have narrowed at the moment.

    This comparison could only be made by someone who's never heard of bassnectar before last year

    and even beyond that, fuck you.

    I was just gonna pipe up and say that bassnectar is officially a douche now. he rolls to smaller gigs with an extra 16 folded 15 sub cabs (it's shite PK stuff but w/e) and he's the ONLY GUY allowed to use them that night, so no matter how good his openers are, he always SOUNDS better. and instead of hanging out with the techs and DJs like he used to, he now sits on his bus with bitches and security

    Nah, that's pretty much 100% untrue, most of his crowd were too young when From First To Last was an active band (I'd say your average Skrillex fan is under 20), and I don't think his friends need to be told what electro is. I just don't like his crowd because they are generally younger and young males tend to be obnoxious.

    I don't think Skrillex would be doing big gigs if this were the mid-90's because he'd be able to make money for himself and the label selling music. Nowadays, when an artist has 1 big track, they have to ride the momentum and tour. I'm sure the label pushed Skrillex hard to tour when "Scary Monsters" became such a huge track.

    u mean like Aphex Twin? yeah, every dj that doesnt spin vinyl 45s sucks balls.. oh, and before anyone can accuse me of comparing a dude from a shitty hardcore band with richard d james, everyone in this thread secretly loves skrillex.. otherwise spending this much time devoted to listening to and talking about something they dont care for is just sad.

    lol @ groupthink. I can't believe this is 11 pages. I finally heard music from him the other day. I don't see nothing wrong with it. It's not my taste cause it's cheesy and too damn happy for me and makes me feel like I'm a 14 year old girl raging against my parents by staying out til 10:30 BUT I see the appeal.

    But the amount of anger you guys put into hating someone who loves what they do for a living and isn't detrimental to anybody is priceless. You guys complain about people saying Coachella sucks cause of the headliners and say "There's 4 other stages" but I honestly think this hate thread has more pages for any other artist not named DFA1979. I hope all you hear walking to your car Sunday when you leave 20 people saying Skrillex was the best Sahara act all weekend. :-p
