    No, you got it wrong. I was responding to a quote by Reid Speed put up by someone in here. In no way was I comparing anyone to Skrillex.

    “The U.S. took everything the U.K. did and pumped it full of steroids and bass,” states Speed. “‘Brostep’ is the derogatory name for it—all testosterone. But that’s what the kids want to hear. They want the filth, the LFO wobbles, the crazy synths and basslines. That’s where we’re pigeonholed, that’s what we’re known for, and that’s cool.”
    Europeans did something similar to house, just without the bass and adding a whole shitload more cheese. Just listen to UK Hard House/Nu-NRG tracks from the early 2000's. They sound nothing like what house music was before that.

    the only difference here... one's a cheap knockoff and the other's a 16 year old girl, you decide which is which.

    Funny all of these people talking shit on Skrillex. Why do you even care? No one is forcing you to attend his set. There will probably be 3 or 4 other acts to catch.

    I'll probably hit up his set though. Will most likely be a wild party.
    U MAD?

    Why you mad tho?

    Lol seriously tho, why does Skrillex bother Coachella forum board members so much? Most of the time when people don't like music they just stop listening to it. Skrillex seems to stir up a plethra of hate.

    If you want to make fun of this, go a head. I'll reply with sarcasm or something irrelevant. But a critical analysis as to why you don't like his music would be appreciated.

    Side note: I feel like new Kings Of Leon (last two cd's) turned rock and roll into crap. Is it sort of like that? Skrillex ruined dubstep for y'all?

    I don't think it's that. I'm not hating on Skrillex, but it's just not my style. Too much noise going on. What I feel gets people hating on him is the fact that Skrillex really is an amazing producer, the only problem is he's doing it to make this 'music' that is nothing more than unrelenting noise for four minutes. The whole DJ part is another discussion.

    Am I a Skrillex fan? Not really. Does his sound design and grasp of melody baffle and impress me? Yes.

    Besy way I can think to describe his music is it's filth for the sake of being filth. There seems to be no rhyme or reason for the music he makes and it seems as though hes riding the coat tails of mau5trap. He seems to be a bit of an egotistical prick seeing as he says his live set will be "life changing" when his dj sets havd consisted of him pressing play with little mixing involved. There's no denying that he has won the respect of many dubstep producers and that can't be taken away from him.

    Edit:
    In response to your comment about KOL, do I think Skrilex is ruining the dubstep genre? No, but he is taking it in a direction that I don't want to see it go. No one artist can ruin a genre of music... It's tough to call what Skrillex comes out with dubstep btw.

    This board just has a mob mentality. His womps are no less annoying than Bassnectar or Datsik, or whichever artists (american or european) that relies on womps to get famous.

    People will think I am a Skrillex fan, but more so I like playing the Devils Advocate on these boards. Mutha fuckas already hate me on these boards, so at this point i might as well clown.

    In his defense, he didn't directly make that claim.

    I just don't like much dubstep to begin with and Skrillex is the bottom of the dubstep barrell. I am open to accepting a dubstep artist if they are appealling to my ears, but instead, Skrillex virtually takes an ice pick and jams it in my ear with his music. He is awful. Just awful.

    Back when I was a kid it was the old "Reptiles Theme" that got me into electronic music. It was the OST for the original MK movie and it was the first CD I ever got. Ha, no matter what, this psy trance song will always have a place in my heart....

    Personally i don't know exactly what it is about him, or maybe it's just everything about him, that just stirs up so much dislike.... Normally i would just ignore music i don't like without any emotional anything, as i do so frequently with any music i dislike.... But THIS guy... man he pisses me off... i can't explain why he causes this reaction in me when other artists i dislike i just ignore and forget about. Maybe it has something to do with a mixture of horrible "music"/his "fans"/his personality(from what i've seen)/his terrible mixing, either way all that matters is that he does bring up these feelings and so i will continue to hate on him openly.

    Hmm, sounds like the same "logic" conservatives use to explain their hatred for homosexuals.

    That might be true if i was talking about dubstep as a whole... which i do not hate.. in fact i am quite fond of a lot of dubstep... This would be akin, in your logic, to the hating of ONE homosexual, which is no different than the hatred of any ONE other person. Did I say i was right in thinking this way? or that i am somehow better than anyone for thinking this way? or that my opinion is better than anyone elses? Most "conservatives" of which you speak of do believe these things. I don't i merely made a statement of MY beliefs.

    this is about as good a question as "seriously though, why hasn't underworld played coachella in like 8 years?"

    i'd like answers to both.

    I can't stand any blatent hatred without an explanation. Was the example extreme? Absolutely. Did he give the same pathetic excuse that anyone gives that has no rhyme or reason for their stance? Sure did. I have a great deal of respect for the people in this thread who can constructively explain why they dislike or even hate Skrillex, but the mob mentality and lack of common sense reasoning among the others is fucking sad.

    I don't like this guy's music because I think that his womp-womp breakdowns are completely over the top and silly in the same way that I think over the top chug-chug breakdowns in hardcore are silly. I like certain electronic acts that are completely over the top, but this guy is unfortunately not one of them. I don't care if he only caters to idiots as some have claimed, and I really don't care about his implications of his success for the future of the dubstep scene, because I predict (probably incorrectly) that despite said success, he will ultimately be a footnote in the genre down the line. Just not my thing.
