I just started to get into Dubstep last year and I guess because of that I am still lacking a firm grasp on what it is. I have an image or sound in mind but the more I listen to the genre the more "sub-genres" of dubstep I find. The song that really started my obsession is Skream's Midnight Request Line
Since Skream, I started to think of dubstep as needing some distinct criteria like wobble bass, midsection, bass drop, etc... I am a big fan of Skrillex now as well and his use of vowel base. I know it doesn't need to include all this to be dubstep, but I guess I am the type of person who needs my music to have a certain structure. Sometimes I see a song on youtube that it says is dubstep but to me it just sounds like drum n bass.
As @jessmk7 mentioned this is First of the Year by Skrillex
I still love the "Dubstep Tutorial" from UKF
So what is with the hate on Rusko? I read a lot of shit from the old dubstep crowd who claim dubstep has become horrible due to it becoming mainstream. Purists can suck my nuts though. Purists are just conservatives who can't adjust to change. Some I think are referring to the new crop of music as brostep i believe. I get the feeling a bunch of the old school people don't like Skrillex either.
Yeah, I will like what I damn well want!
Some people just don't like what they consider to be "Brostep" which is effectively superficial emulation just because the style is getting popular. I don't like that either, but saying what Brostep actually is is subjective and to the individual's tastes. So I won't hate on anyone specifically unless they are clearly just fronting (which doesn't seem to happen that often, really)
YAY! possiBri- you have the same taste that I do, awesome :)
On that first vid, I actually moved my phone because I thought it was interfering with the speaker and causing it to make that sound haha
Love the odd/creepy warble in this one.
