    for real. I think he forgot what message boards are for.

    It's not like we're all at home shivering with rage that schrillecks exists.

    This is sig-worthy.

    I used to be a huge Bassnectar fan during his breaks heyday (saw him in 2005 at Meltdown Dallas) and saw him again a couple of times at Nocturnal, so no, not my cup of tea. Majority of his fanbase are mostly prostitots, dudebros, and sorority skanks who are obviously unaware of his early material. You think the average Bassnectar sorority skank nowadays knows that track Everybody? Please.

    Bassnectar sold out the minute he dabbled into dubstep (or brostep). It's quite comical to talk a load of trash about Skrillex while ignoring Bassnectar's recent shitty remixes and material. Bass Head is garbage. It's like these dumb twats at EDC Dallas that started whining about Skrillex being commercial while gloating about Mt. Eden not being commercial rofl

    I'll give you that Bassnectar, unlike Skrillex, has a load of talent but he's more interested in racking up ridiculous booking fees than he is with sticking to what he does best.

    diverse systems of throb is my favorite bassnectar album to date. shame he had to diverge away from all that kind of stuff. comparing him to skrillex is stupid, skrillex makes trash and at least bassnectar has somewhat of a past.

    edit: just saw that commercial with scary monsters and sprites in it

    Even the "shitty" - as you call it - material Bassnectar makes is leaps and bounds above anything Skrillex has ever produced.

    lol true

    Now what if Bassnectar and Skrillex end up collaborating on a track? You know it's bound to happen, especially when Pendulum is doing it now.

    Thanks for correcting me, Boourns.

    Electro - I'll probably listen to it, regret doing so and act like it never happened similar to when Raekwon and Kanye did a song with Justin Bieber.

    yes Lorin's a massive primadonna but also consumate professional. That's another spectrum he's on the complete opposide side of relative to schrillechs (btw "divergent spectrum" is his most pretensious album name yet)
    If think he's more concerned with booking fees than schrillechs is then you don't know much about him.

    If you don't hear the difference between bassnectar's music and straight bro-step then you don't really know much about his music and the evolution of it. He's been playing dubstep to some degree since 2006. His music may sound forumulaic now, but that's because he was one of the guys who created the formula that these kids are butchering.

    I miss his King of SF days dearly, and as much as i don't go for his latest direction, there's still one place I see him play every year that reminds me how incredible he shit can be.

I was at the Neon Garden for Jack Beats and after their set I was picking my way for through the crowd as swarms of Skrillex fans descended on the stage. Skrillex hopped on the mic and asked everyone if they loved "bass music" and the shrieking from his drugged-up minions was deafening. Then it dawned on me: none of these people would be at the Circuit Grounds for Richie Hawtin, and they weren't. Everybody wins.

    A guy I know told me that his two favorite sets at EDC were Empire of the Sun and Infected Mushroom because he "likes instruments." That's pretty symptomatic of one of the biggest problems with the EDM scene, which is that the average raver has no fucking idea what's going on behind the decks. Live set, DJ set, iTunes playlist - a good portion of the crowd could care less, just as long as there's a beat and they get their roll on. With rock shows you have something tangible to look at and hear; a musician who can't play their instrument or sing worth a shit gets exposed pretty quickly.

    I think that's what irks people the most about Skrillex. It's not that he's insanely popular for making shit music and performing it terribly (which is all true) while dozens of more-talented producers and djs toil in obscurity, it's that the average raver can't tell the difference.
    words of a wise man=)

    Let me give you an example: his remix of Massive Attack's Risingson.

    I'll admit that it's not bad to begin with, but his braindead dudebro and sorority skank fans of his think it's "groundbreaking", when in reality I heard similar stuff in the early 2000's, such as the Nynex remix of Cirrus' Boomerang (at least the bassline as far as we are concerned).


    Funny enough I played this in my car one time with my friends and they were like "omg were you playing Bassnectar?"

    I immediately facepalmed and they are the usual crowd that loves Skrillex as well.

    CoS said the same thing, but then again, their whole review of the weekend was one of the worst things i've ever read.

    this sounds nothing like the massive attack remix in any respect other than the tempo. Not in composition and absolutely not anywhere close in production. If you're going to try to claim music unoriginal because it uses a similar drum track to something old then you're going to be a very sad hater the rest of your life.

    You have to realize if Skrillex wasn't in music, he would be in big trouble.

    Skrill me if I get stuck in a skrillex crowd again... the only reason i like him on lineups is to drag his ridiculous fans out of the crowd of other stages with better music

    I'll be one happy fool if he plays head to head with Soulwax at Hard HM 2011

    There are many horrific things about Derpstep in general and Skrillex in particular, but I can better understand why someone would want to involve themselves in all that than this retarded moombahton trend that needs to die like months ago already.

    White hipsters will flock to anything that seems even vaguely multi-culti (from a safe, clean, white distance of course)

    That caspa remix seems to be a staple of his set these days if the first few vids on youtube are any indication.

    The moombahton thing doesn't really bother me that much, at least folks can dance to it instead of just standing there and swaying their fucking hand like a retard.
    My only fear about it is that idiots may start confusing dancehall with that stuff.
