    The guy brought Korn to Coachella. Into the Sahara tent.

    You have a very long way to go in convincing me that this mate is "good".

    Obviously, musical taste is totally subjective. You personally decide what's good to you and what isn't. But the reason people can't tolerate acts like Skrillex is what has happened for him to make it big. I couldn't care less what genre he is, how much of a "celebrity" he has become or any of that nonsense. Many people here like artists that are mainstream (Radiohead, Daft Punk, Jay-Z, Muse, Outkast, Arcade Fire etc).

    The problem is that Skrillex gets paid to do anything BUT DJ. I personally think the music he plays is terrible. Not just bad, but unbearable. But what really gets to me is how he conducts himself while performing.

    There are videos where he's not mixing; not doing anything. He is very unprofessional as a performer (i.e., quitting because your laptop fucks up and using that as an excuse rather than having a backup on hand. If I can afford multiple laptops, so can Skrillex).

    Everything else just makes it worse. This is a guy that played the Sahara Tent while acts like High Contrast (a DnB legend), DJ Dan, Donald Glaude, Dirty Vegas and Lee Burridge were in the Oasis dome, Heineken Dome and Do Lab.

    As far as the hate in this thread. It's pure comedy.

    I just got this awful vision, which was followed by a brief migraine, when I pictured - in my head - the lineup being released and seeing Korn on the poster.

    scrillecks isn't anyone's "cup o tea". He's the four loko of EDM. Lots of kids went apeshit over that too. Does that mean it had any merit at all?


    The utility of this thread, and scrillecks hate in general, is to expedite the fall of bro-step and hope it spreads to all obnoxious masturbatory forms of bass music.

    Look, I've said before that I'm not really a Skrillex fan (this fact got lost in all the whining), nor do I care for a boring live show like that, but this discussion lacks perspective. Skrillex never really DJed before having a track out, and when you have a hot track, your label (in this case, Mau5trap, which for all intents and purposes is a major label) is going to push you to tour. There was no time for him to take a crash course in DJing, nor would his up-and-coming DJ skills be appreciated by people who paid for professionalism.

    The kid is a G with bass and mid-range and he has the respect of his peers. I can't believe your vaginas are still sore about this dude.

    mmmmyeah it's so apparent that the kid was dragged kicking and screaming into [non]performing and just hasn't had a smidge of time to over the last year to figure out to craft some vague semblance of a live set or even buy a backup laptop.
