No its not a brocken down car with a parrot and a cat having interracial sex in it. And its not Aliens messaging or having sex. Its Dubstep put to words. Or letters. For those who have no idea what it is, i suggest you go over to google and search about it. come on put Google to other uses than browsing porn or completing your assignments. Heck, even i browse porn and watch , but hey i do other things too, things that are productive. Do something new for a change *laugh-out-loud*
So it’s been taking the world by storm for a while now. Dubstep is everywhere. We all know about it, many of us love it, You haven't ? Where have you been ? oh browsing porn *another-big-fat laugh* Now the problem is not being you not 'informed about this whole new musical genre'. No no no, i don't give a fuck whether you have listened to it or not. Its your loss, not mine, right ? make perfect sense. But there’s a massive problem brewing for us people that admire good music and its 'continuablity'……the yanks have got hold of Dubstep! NO PLEASE !, this is not an anti-american rant by another anti-american, scumbag,commie, Bin Laden, Ahaajinajad this that... not even Joseph Kony.
But 'some American people', not the good day to day soldiers,farmers,work force, and good people of 'good' art forms, But 'some people' who are after to make fast bucks and fame and possibly some pussy, tend to go up on wild adventures of getting something famous and freaking that to their own profit. And maybe because the country is large and the big population, america has the vast numbers of it.
Anyway , if you are reading from here on i strongly suggest to go and read about Dubstep and listen to some good dubstep by artists like Datsik(3 fist style, my favorite track), and then continue. Because if you don't, again is not my fault but you wouldn't be able to make a head-or-tail out of this post.
Coming back to the topic at hand : after some research of a miniature scale i noticed that at the moment there is a wave of American producers coming into Dubstep from other genres. more the artists better right ? WRONG ! What is wrong is, these producers are flooding the genre with horrible mid range wobbled melodic shit, they have an addiction to the almighty ‘filth’(Obvious duuuh). It’s gored-out mosh music as opposed to dance music. Not to say these beatmakers don’t have talent(covers my self from the tomato's). But Take the new award winning - 'Skrillex' for example (that's the biggest laugh some of my friends and me had) , some of his intro’s are rare, the melodic trancey intro for ‘Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites’ is very good and well produced and is something not many does. His production is tight…….then comes the drop. The song turns from a catchy, trancey rhythm into a violent racket of overwhelming wobbles. His sound after the drop is plain and simple and there is a fairly long list of American producers my friend Sandaruwan(a persons name for those who only know english, a producer) can say the same about. The bass is growly and reminds me of nails on a chalkboard, it’s just all a little silly and a million miles away from the garage and dub inspired scenes in Britain. Yeah think that's where Dubstep was born according to my researches.
|Skrillex - How gay and emo can you look at the same time|
The yank producers are generally giving the genre a bad name, like they do with most. my friend actually said dubstep is now actually is dying. For me after listening to the genre for more than a year, Hearing shit from producers such as Skrillex, Excision and Figure is heartbreaking. They are butchering the sound of Dubstep and calling it Dubstep. It’s like sticking your cock in Vanessa Feltz and telling everyone you fucked Megan Fox.
As i found out Skrillex, released his first EP on the Mau5trap label, that helped him gain notoriety very very quickly. Due to the backing of the Mau5, all 8 tracks off his first EP were top rated. It’s a great achievement yes, but if the core american electronic music listeners user base (which i dont think has really acknowledged Dubstep that much as yet, fuck awards ! ) is going to finally acknowledge the genre through an artist like Skrillex and his shit, then I worry for the future. Now, there could be some producers over in Uncle Sam’s land that don’t produce this terrible gorestep. I don’t know. In fact there are bound to be, but I’m going on the producers that have gained reputations fast and are big names over there. Now I’m not picking on these guys, they have found a way to be successful and have hit a chord with Americans between the ages of 16 and 24. They are mad for it over there, and the money, the fame, the sex flows in.
So there are people that say the genre needs to evolve, sure it does, every genre does to an extent, especially a relatively new one such as Dubstep. To have longevity, evolution of a sound is a must. The problem is that there is a difference between evolution and perversion. Dubstep is going through both processes at once and the results couldn’t be further apart. When classical music evolved there wasn't suck cases like this. When Rock and Metal evolved the bands didn't go crazy and end up with non-nonsensical shit. Everyone made sure they made positive contributions.
It’s definitely going to be interesting to see where we are heading. This violent pony that Skrillex and co. are producing is not going to go away. Not while the record companies have these money making machines on their hands. Capitalism will rear its ugly head and if they are making money, that’s it and if I’m honest, aslong as the sound doesn’t start influencing young, talented producers out there in the world, I don’t care. There is however, a problem in identifying what dubstep is these days. Unfortunately to some, it includes sounds that are so far apart from what I and many others perceive it as.
Still at the end of the day, difference in opinion is what makes the world go round. But if there's a thing that money can move things. yes not some, but the mass.. the mob, money can move that. Its because of the need of money that there are thieves, that there are smugglers, that there are hookers, and that there are artists who has no passion on what they are doing. If such happens a good form of music can die out. Not completely, but would go underground, only to be cherished by those who loved it, and lost for the future. At the moment Dubstep is not dead. Its alive, but there is destruction. Dont let it die.
