lol!!! Give me something to breeeeeak!!
"Well, that's just like, you know... your opinion, man"
He may be able to produce a track that another DJ would mix into a set and lay down some pipe, but a 1 hour set from a guy who cant mix a fucking track.... This is going to be boring as shit and ugly.
I just think its a shame that a precious timeslot will be wasted on this guy. And he will undoubtedly play in the Sahara, while artists that fucking BUILT the sound he is profiteering off of will be relegated to the PF stage. But hey, the more retard magnets the better, right? One less conflict...
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
This is why people hate dubstep. Kids that are just now finding out about it think this is what it is. They have been hoodwinked!
i'm not a bro in any way shape or form
so, he's not *just* pressing play. there's a solid 2 seconds of amateurish DJing in there, too.
Yeah yeah I haven't met you skrillex but you're very defensive with your responses. Honestly, it's the internet, why do you even care if someone calls you an asshole? 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.
That guy was sore the next day.
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.
this thread is so good
yup, this thread just reminds me how much I dislike skrillex. fuck mau5trap brooooooos!
You people are all retarded.. He may not be the best dj but he is a talented producer.. you talk about him like you have made ANYTHING worth a shit.. Go listen to animal collective and take your musical elitism elsewhere
Recognizing that something sucks doesn't make you an elitist.
