I dont hate dubstep but can only handle it in small doses. If Im in that "type" of mood, I would much rather listen to Trance or House. I guess just like any genre, youll have good dubstep and bad dubstep except in this genre, I find it very hard to differenciate between the two. Im a big fan of NIN so the whole Industrial feel certain dubstep has appeals to me. Its alright at a party or at the club mixed in with other songs but I couldnt ever see myself just listening to it for the sake of listening to it.

Since I started doing mixing and whatnot, I've discovered that some dubstep goes well with gangster rap. I made a mix of Excision and Ice Cube that I was pretty proud of. The aggression from each feeds well into the other's sound.

yeah this is pretty much how I feel too. I don't hate it, I just don't see myself listening to it casually.

It was funny, I played some dubstep for my dad about a year ago when I was visiting and his reaction was priceless. It was a mixture of confusion, intrigue, and more confusion.

Remember when electronic artists were talented? If there is anyone making worthwhile dance music these days it's Kavinsky.

#1: Success; His monstrous success and popularity has made Skrillex the poster boy for Dubstep ( a moniker he never asked for by the way)


#2: Dubstep purists disliking "Brostep", the popular Americanized take on dubstep.

Below is a further breakdown taken from the Wikipedia:

In 2011, dubstep gained significant traction in the US market, by way of a post-dubstep style known as brostep, with the American producer Skrillex becoming something of a poster boy for the scene.

In September 2011 a Spin Magazine EDM special referred to brostep as a "lurching and aggressive" variant of dubstep that has proven commercially successful in the United States.

Unlike traditional dubstep production styles, which emphasise sub-bass content, brostep accentuates the middle register and features "robotic fluctuations and metal-esque aggression".

According to Simon Reynolds, as dubstep gained larger audiences and moved from smaller club-based venues to larger outdoor events, sub-sonic content was gradually replaced by distorted bass riffs that function roughly in the same register as the electric guitar in heavy metal.

The term brostep has been used by some as a pejorative descriptor for a style of popular Americanised dubstep. So called "dubstep purists" leveled criticism at brostep because of its preoccupation with "hard" and aggressive sounding timbres.

U.S. and Canadian artists often drew inspiration from British brostep producers who tended to work less with sub-bass and more with mid-range sounds such as Caspa and Rusko, and Vex'd.

Rusko himself claimed in an interview on BBC Radio 1Xtra that "brostep is sort of my fault, but now I've started to hate it in a way ... It's like someone screaming in your face ... you don't want that."

According to a BBC review of his 2012 album Songs, the record was a muddled attempt by Rusko to realign his music with a "Jamaican inheritance" and distance it from the "belching, aggressive, resolutely macho" dubstep produced by his imitators.

Commenting on the success of American producers such as Skrillex, Skream has stated: "I think it hurts a lot of people over here because it's a UK sound, but it's been someone with influences outside the original sound that has made it a lot bigger. The bad side of that is that a lot of people will just say 'dubstep equals Skrillex'. But in all honesty it genuinely doesn't bother me. I like the music he makes."
I think the biggest reason people hate on him is because he has a face that makes one wanna punch babies.

Define screaming metal. Do you mean screechy metal like Cradle Of Filth? Yelling like Slipknot, or death growls like Opeth?

I guess I fall into that category, though I'm not a dubstep purist, and not european. I've tried to listen to Skrillex, numerous times man. My brain just doesn't process that shit as good sound. It's sloppy, it's random noises, little melody, and this guy used to be in an emo rock band... I don't even get where the fuck he came from all of a sudden.

Dubstep in small doses is alright, but when every song has the exact same structure and sound, it gets old quickly.

A few favorite electronic artists:

Deadmau5
Feed Me / Spor
Wolfgang Gartner
Knife Party
Zomboy
Michael Woods
Tiesto
But trance can be like this as well. I've had people hate on me listening to trance, because they claimed the basic beat structure of every song was the same.

Kavinsky is cool, but he ain't the only one out there.
