    Went to a bellydance show Friday night. One of the girls started her performance, and I was happy to hear anything NOT traditional Middle Eastern. Sounded like a bland pop song. And then...chainsaws on a keyboard and whomp whomp. Andy and I immediately looked at each other and mouthed "SKRILLEX." Sure enough, it was a Skrillex remix of a Benny Benassi song.
    My name is Becca. Hi.

    At Bonnaroo, my mates and I coined "Fucking Skrillex!!!" as a term to use to express extreme pleasure at something very bro-like at a festival. Unfortunately many people cheered when we yelled it.

    I have a friend who takes pride in the fact that he was the first of our friends to "discover" skrillex. He "discovered" skrillex sometime in January and kept telling me how I can't miss his set at Coachella. I was polite and just pretended that I hadn't already read this thread and heard how shitty it was. Later this year I was invited to a Skrillex/Pretty Lights show with him lol. He doesn't get it.

    An actual conversation with a friend of mine:
    Him: So, I've been listening to a lot of dubstep recently...
    Me: Uh oh.
    Him: There is this guy you really need to lis-
    Me: If you say Skrillex, I will punch you in the fucking throat.
    Him: *stunned look* "How did you know I was going to say Skril-
    Me: I just did. Fuck him. He's terrible.
    Him: Why do you say that?
    Me: Have you seen a video of him playing live? He just presses play on his MacBook, twists some nobs, and smokes cigarettes the whole time. Why do you think he's good?
    Him: ...uh... well... he's just... really talented! And he makes good music!
    Me: ...

    Has there been an artist thats been hated on as much as Skrillex on this board?

    I've heard snippets of his remixes (they're eh), but is 44 pages necessary?

    44 pages is not necessary. We need more than that.

    Skrillex deserves this much hate, if only because of his influence on teens and the fact that they think Skrillex is pinnacle of EDM.

    Ok I was always willing to give this guy the benefit of a doubt but after I noticed this video on youtube....

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXKEgdimVuU


    He can officially go fuck himself. He is no longer maybe good because he brings new people into the scene. He is a straight up bitch.

    That is not only the lamest representation of Campo Bisco, the most hardcore drug infested shitfest of a festival, but the acoustic rendition of his bad hook in his terrible single is noncomprehending.

    Bad for the scene, he deserves the hate. Hes trying to make money drowning out better and more talented musicians because he has somehow reached pop culture status. Fuck him.

    Oh EDM nerds are always up in arms about the newest lame EDM popstar.
    As if without Skrillex, all the teens at his shows would be into Burial instead or whatever.

    A. It doesnt remotely work like that.

    B. It has no effect whatsoever on the rest of EDM

    C. Really, who gives a shit?

    D. Thinking of EDM as a genre seems as silly as trying to conjure up a genre out of "Wooden Instruments" Its a tool, not necessarily a genre or style
    Its not 1992 anymore. Technically Katy Perry's songs are EDM.

    E. Again, who gives a shit? All the "real" EDM parties are going to exist one way or the other. Just dont go to the ones at which Skrillex and his ilk appear.

    I'm tempted to make some music that is intentionally absolute shite and pass it off as "art" or "good music" just to see if it will get popular. That's what Skrillex has been doing for a little over a year, right?

    Ya i went for 15 mins cause i wanted to see if i could get a video with a lot of hits if i uploaded it from bisco. Guess how that is working out? There were a few funny things about those 15 mins. The best was that 0 people i saw were on good drugs.

    He's playing 2 shows in VA and they're both 16+. I'm entertained by the fact that kids are complaining about it.

    A shitty dubstep act is billed higher than a slightly less shitty dubstep act.
