    This guy gets it. Skrillex is a producer, you can't expect him to be sick at mixing. Also, he said hes gonna PLAY a new song for everyone. It's Obvious that its the end of his set.

    This thread has gone on for pages and pages and won't die. If he was really that bad, why would any of you waste a second of your important time to convince us he sucks so hard?

    Because people care. Because he is trying to make a living. Don't like him? Don't watch his set, its that simple.

    One of the many benefits of being a 63 year old man is that I can hate Skrillex once and then never be bothered by it (more or less) again.

    Yall should just let the dude be terrible and devote your time to more personally satisfying pursuits, such as...









    Im not tryin to tell anyone how to live their lives. Im just sayin.
    "All of you coachella 'regulars' have nasty boy pussies and itchy dick4's on your asses.
    Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
    I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.
    Fair the well, you elitest scumbags."

    the "he's a producer not a DJ" argument is a bit disingenuous in 2011, i mean if he's producing dope tracks to vinyl and can't mix them that's one thing but he's djing with the same software he uses for production

    but yeah this thread should probably be destroyed and i hate myself for continuous to post about the 'rex

    nobody IS expecting him to be sick at mixing. But it's not too much to ask for him to simply make a small attempt. If you think that he's doing at least that then you're just a moron.

    And when did you first learn about the internets? Bitching on the internet about bitching on the internet will never be ironical. It just makes you look like a dipshit. (...omg, but then... wait did I just.. wait what?)

    I think the general consensus is that people are sour that this terrible live DJ is getting pretty decent spots at most festivals when these timeslots could be allocated to someone who is actually a filthy live artist. The only reason he is popular is because the fiver pushed him on all the kiddies. Now he stands there, plays his laptop and makes all the tweens think they are at the Imax listening to the new transformers movie soundtrack.

    Props to Coachella that buried him in the middle of the afternoon. At CBX he took up one of the prime latenight spots in the main tent. That should have gone to someone who doesn't suck dick live.

    Also, he has no finesse or tact, its fucking grinding metal meets 80's arcade noises for an hour straight. I sat through ten mins of his set at bisco and had to get the fuck out of there.

    This kid is a vaGina and push's garbage mid range sounds for idiots to listen to. I agree with the guy above when he said guys much more deserving were playing in oasis/dolab/heineken dome. However sound proved to be less drowned out by people on the smaller stages so maybe it was better anyways...

    Talking to my best friend's sister who just moved to Hawaii...

    Her: Is that a Coachella wristband?
    Me: *perked up ears* YES IT IS! DID YOU GO?
    Her: Yeah!
    Me: What was your favorite?
    Her: SKRILLEX!
    Me: *speechless*

    True story. I didn't know that there were people that actually considered that to be their favorite set.

    FOUR TET. HOT CHIP. SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO. BOOKA SHADE. LEE SCRATCH PERRY. BEACH HOUSE.

    Richie Hawtin. James Blake. Loco Dice.

    every show I work now that is electronic/dubstep, some of the people will come by, start talking, and this conversation will unfold:

    fan: hey man this must be an awesome job! do you like this kind of music?
    me: nah it's not quite my thing
    fan: well what are you into?
    me: i'm more into deep/progressive house, techno, and drum n bass
    fan: seriously no dubstep? you dont even like it a bit?
    me: i mean I think some of its ok, but alot of it is just blatant noise with poor mixing
    fan: gotcha. ever listen to skrillex? he's one of the best out there
    me: ..........

    and wouldn't you know it, he just got announced at my place of work.

    it's happened to me quite a few times too. and it's truly fascinating, if you're a 'to each their own' type of person and you simply can't find the words or a way to express your own distaste, sometimes just for the sake of being polite. i've found its much easier on the conscience to suggest something like burial, mount kimbie, scuba etc. instead of just berating them. leave the hate in here where its hilarious.

    Skrillex "hate" should be spread everywhere... not just this thread.

    I don't consider it hate when it comes to Skrillex though. I consider it honesty and a public service.

    Friends don't let friends listen to Skrillex.

    I actually had a friend of mine once explain how he felt that there was more "soul" or "feeling" in an electronic beat/noise as opposed to like a drum or guitar. Skrillex was one of his examples.

    I really wish I was joking, but that actually happened.

    I usually tell them to start listening The Orb. Or Underworld.
