It feels like with a lot of the chainsaw side of the genre, producers, DJs – and, I suppose, crowds – are after 'filth', the hardest, nastiest sounds possible. It pushes music to the point where it becomes totally sexless, totally lacking in groove and soul. And though you might say it's punk as fuck, it's pretty hard to deny that there was still something sexy about 70s punk rock's defiant posturing and anti-establishmentarianism, which then later became further manifest in post-punk's obsession with groove. That sexiness is lacking in music by someone like Borgore, who I'd argue goes one level beyond, at times touching on misogynistic. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm not even sure that the hardest extremes of the genre could really be classed as 'dance music' anymore; as far as I'm concerned they're closer to nu-metal, a slightly angst-ridden, testosterone fuelled paean to extremity for extremity's sake.
agree with this.
Dubstep's strength, as I've written elsewhere, is in its mongrel nature and its flexibility: it has the ability to infect house, d&b, techno, electronica etc without losing its core integrity – and to expand an awfully long way in all directions.
also agree.
with dubstep, it's become less a single unified sound than a sort of general aesthetic – bass, space, darkness, depth, atmosphere.
and love this.

yeah, it's great that people like ramadanman can still be classed as dubstep even though they don't have a sawtooth midrange lfo and a boshing snare on 3 :teef:

Rory Gibb wrote: I always loved the fact that bangers often comprised only a part of most DJs' sets – they'd be the peaks in energy between far deeper troughs, and sets as a whole would engage through variation. Sets that are comprised only of bangers can be, to be frank, exhausting and/or nauseatingly intense.

While we're quoting.
And given that the music industry and the music business as we know it is gradually dying a death, it's strange/sad to see something so experimental and boundary-pushing occasionally forced to walk a line I really don't think it's in any way connected to. That's especially something I feel with James Blake – not the record itself, which I really like, but the press campaign surrounding it was hyped to almost terrifying levels (terms like 'game changing' thrown around for what amounts to a good, but not world changing record). And more to the point, dubstep in that case felt used less as a descriptor and more as a credibility-boosting buzzword (again, not by Blake himself, but by an awful lot of press/publicity people milling around him). I have my thoughts on the politics behind dubstep (and dance music generally), and I do feel frustrated in what I see as engagement with the capitalist, exploitative, money-driven models behind major label music publishing.

They're just a pair of undies with a word printed on them in a terrible font and a cliche'd set of lips on the ass of them...

Think it's the ass that's wearing them that is wanted ;)

i have tried to read the article a few times.. but can never be fucked.

imo people like datsik, dr p, flux pavillion, cookie monsta make shit music that sounds like some one filled a 10 gallon barrel full of babies a few kittens in and then a chainsaw chucked in.

having said that i did once drop sweet shop when very drunk at e55, but it was only the start i think..???
