    I guessed you were linking to a thread you'd started before I clicked on it btw. Sorry to be that guy...
    I think you're reading too much into "hate to be that guy".

    Congrats on that guess though! Not sure what your point is when I've to linked to a few existing threads when people create related ones (a tiny number over the space of 11 years) regardless of who created the former.

    But hey, if it cheers you up...

    I only ever hear dubstep in commercials and only old people seem to talk about it. I'm starting to wonder which generation likes it.

    See, this is what happens when you listen to dubstep. It's evil.

    Yeah dubstep used to be good with Burial, Skream and Benga making some great stuff. What dubstep is now is 98% shit.

    Must be tricky being a dubstep hipster. Where do you get your coffee? Not many cafes rocking the wub, I imagine.

    I think we can all agree the recent (largely) American stuff is no use. Really brash, obnoxious and unpleasant.

    It's a shame that that's what people think of when they hear the word "dubstep". It's quite a separate thing, really.

    Saying that, I find it really difficult to classify electronic music nowadays. I've just given up, frankly. Is it dubstep, techno, house, jungle, ambient, experimental? Who knows. A lot of stuff blurs the lines these days. Genres in electronic music are very fluid.

    Always thought skillrex owed as much to industrial as anything else.

    Producers are too. Even a few years ago people rigidly stuck to a single genre (partially because the fans would call them sellouts if they digressed).

    Its good really. Youve got people like Photek going from smoke rings to sleepwalking (also a good 'dubstep' tune) and people arent really kicking off about it.

    There are two types of electronic music. That which I like and that which I don't. I couldn't care less if it's dubstep, techno, house, ambient or whatever. If it's good I'll listen to it.

    Yeah. I bought that Burial album years ago, having no idea at the time that it was supposed to be "Dubstep". Lots of the electronic/DJ stuff I bought in the 1990s (Kruder & Dorfmeister, Photek, etc.) would probably be labelled as Dubstep nowadays as well.

    Burial is not Dubstep - it's 2-step garage.

    Yeah, Burial is still triphop to me. Dubstep might have been a right description then (after 2step/garage), now i associate it with monstruous rolling basslines with agressive thickness and hectic contrasting out of control energy. I like it, like i like a lot of electronic music (new frontiers), do prefer less sugarrush adhd attacks and more considered/layered ambient elements being incorporated in it. Better for listenening instead of just dancing like a maniac. Forza 4 soundtrack had lots of more subtle dubstep flows in the musictracks, very energetic without being bombasting.

    Dubstep (elements) done right = part of IDM, less problems with aging too, imo.
    Ugly dubstep = fashion.

    Dubstep ain't normally my cup of tea, but I like stuff that approaches it, and even some examples of the genre itself. Not my thing for the main part, and some of it is atrocious, some can be great, but see also (for example): metal.



    [Helped by being Newsom, obv. There is a diabolical one of Peach Plum Pear on YT also]
    Best thing in the thread that i listened to. I dont get on with the dubstep thing as a whole, although i really liked what Skream did to that la roux song.

    This and this. Been listening to Pangaea's FabricLive mix recently. Considering that it is the alternative line to their house/techno series and Pangaea is one of the dubstep vanguards, it is remarkably techno. A good half, or even more, of the mix goes by before you get anything that vaguely resembles dubstep.

    You can tell the influence running through it though. It feels earthen, raw, organic... even kicks off with a Pangaea techno number that has the big tell of a 3rd beat clap.

    Best thing is when there is disregard for boundaries and playing to types.
