People forget or just dont know Skrillex's roots. He was the lead singer for a relatively successful emo/skreamo group called From First to Last. I think this explains his poppy melodies. I don't think he's trying to be some dub-purist. He's just doing something in the same style he's always done and it happens to appeal broader demographic From First to Last probably was hated by metal-purists too. I think skrillex is genuine.
his roots are well known. he is muff cabbage.

I've been listening to her show for years. I know what she's about, you don't need to educate me on her. I've seen her play in SF. It's like a dubstep "best of" set. She is playing other people's music. By definition, it is NOT her thumbprint on any of it. This is all fine for a club in a city somewhere, but it would have been more appropriate to bring an actual producing artist out there to play something original.
you really can't argue this with "she's got good taste". ya we know.
why the fuck are the people standing around on the stage behind him look so fucking awkward? and it's always white bitches who can't dance so it's a double fail. oh god.

brostep is boring, formulaic, unchallenging shit. Luckily it tipped so fast that hopefully coachella will be over it next year.
