I was always frustrated with thedubstep I listen to, that misses thedub.
Checked “Dubstep” wikipedia page for once. Now I’ve found what I’ve been missing. Modern dub plates. Shit is excellent. It’s not post-dubstep, as they say.
I love the mid-range, agressive dubstep, for sure. But as long as its still driven by a good bassline and rhythm. I hate it when music loses its rooting. Probably why I love Sukh Knight so much- he can make those mid-rage, post dubstep era joints, but still have that wonderful bass rooting. For sure.
So nah. Not into brostep. Aggression for the sake of aggression. Much like American metal music, as wikipedia points out. But Flux, Borgore, a good amount of these guys in this post-dubstep era still have a solid bassline in mind. So I enjoy them.
Don’t like Skrillex, don’t like the idea of him. Find him a prick. I always have a sour spot for Americanized, after Britishized Jamaican music- like what America did to Blue Note Ska, and what Blue Note Ska did to Ska. Punk was introduced, then it turned to shit. Then American pop/rock was introduced, then shit turned to shit. Of course there are exceptions, don’t get at me. But I don’t dig the West’s reverse digestion of Jamaican music, for sure.
