    Skrillex (or, Sonny Moore) proves his ability to diversify and develop an intimate style of production on his latest EP, Leaving. But for every step forward that he takes on this EP, he actually takes two steps back.
    The hallmark of Leaving is its title track. Critical outlets that formerly spurned Moore for his pandering “brostep” sounds are now championing his derivative Burial tropes. The track is by far Moore’s most competent, playing with a variety of pacing tricks and subtle vocal shifts that help shape the track in a meaningful way. It explores Moore’s interest with the subtleties of dub music, which is surprising given the artist’s penchant for grandiose dub-anthems.

    Yet not after long, the nuance of “Leaving” is bungled due to Moore’s insufferable excitement over the same dubstep treasure map he’s been touting for years. The opening half of “The Reason” features a twisted female vocal sample and some straightforward drum and bass loops through a variety of pitch filters. “Scary Bolly Dub” is exactly the kind of Skrillex™ so much of the zeitgeist has vilified him for promoting: pulling a vocal sample from a YouTube video and placing it delicately before the drop of the bass. Three and a half minutes of screeching, bouncing synths and massive stadium-filling bass. And while Moore has proven it to be enjoyable in the right circumstances — say in front of 10,000 screaming fans — the track on its own, sounds pandering.

    There are moments where Moore gets it right, such as “Leaving”, when he actually allows himself to orchestra and produce, opposed to just creating more fodder for the bass starved, festival goers. However, the Leaving EP as a whole lacks the innovation we were hoping would kickstart electronic music in a new direction in 2013.

    tl;dr "we'd rather have Skrillex produce mere imitations of other artists we like much better, than focus on what's clearly his niche even if we hate it"

    any post that interrupts a string of non-sequiturs is not useful.

    Thought I would just lump ths in here. Didn't really wan to make a separate thread. God today's EDM is awful

    http://stoneyroads.com/why-beatports...00-is-failing/



    In what has to be considered a hilarious yet genius prank, Swedish duo Daleri had a light bulb moment and released a minute long compilation combining every ‘hard hitting’ drop from the current Beatport Top 100.

    In an unofficial way, the pair have declared their war on the ‘EDM’ scene infecting Beatport’s current ‘top’ list for being too damn repetitive and highlighted the generic nature of the EDM beast.

    Totalling only 58 seconds you’ll be able to hear the drops from 16 current Beatport ‘top’ tracks, ranging from Dimitri Vegas’ “Wakanda” to Hardwells remix of Krewella’s “Alive” all hilariously mixed together!

    What do you make it of it?

    1. Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike – Wakanda (Original Mix) [Intro]
    2. Alvaro & Moti – NaNaNa (Original Mix)
    3. Pyero – Genesis (Original Mix)
    4. Chuckie, Dzeko & Torres – Down To This (Original Mix)
    5. Makj – Springen (Original Mix)
    6. Sini – Razz (Original Mix)
    7. Pelari – Cango (Original Mix)
    8. Krewella – Alive (Hardwell Remix)
    9. Shermanology – The Only Way (Original Mix)
    10. W&W – Thunder (Original Mix)
    11. Gta, Henrix & Digital Lab – Hit It! (Original Mix)
    12. Sultan, Ned Shepard, Fedde Le Grand – No Good (Extended Mix)
    13. Henrix, Wayne & Woods – Jumangee (Original Mix) [Tiesto Club Life Rip]
    14. Alvaro & Mercer feat. Lil Jon – Welcome To The Jungle (Original Mix)
    15. Klauss Goulart & Mark Sixma – Rio (Original Mix)
    16. Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike – Wakanda (Original Mix) [
    Superfan will be in front of the Fonda masturbating furiously to a photo of him taking a photo of a band. Set is from 8:05 to approximately 8:05:15. Guest list only.

    Upcoming Shows: Spamalot (7/31), HARD (8/1) 2001 Space Odyssey with LA Phil (8/12), Opeth (10/18), TOOL (10/31), Coachella 2016 (WK1), David Gilmour (Wherever I need to go)
