Default Dubstep?

Am I the only one here who likes wobbly basslines AND Deathcore metal at the same time?

Also, everyone should listen to dubstep at some poinbt in their life.

Dubstep is just the latest in the crappy trends in music. All the moreso for being derivative of other crappy trends in music. Dubstep kills babies.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

I certainly agree, but I have been listening since early 07.

I like bits, such as Chase & Status, but I'm not massively into it. Then again I have a raging hatred for deathmetal/hardcore/grindcore crap. I prefer music where you can make out the lyrics and it isn't just screaming, growling and guitar shredding.

I've enjoyed dubstep for about four years now. You saying that "everyone should listen to dubstep at least once in their life" should be changed to "everyone should see a dubstep concert at least once in their life." Those experiences are ineffable and have been some of the best times of my life.

people need to stop shifting their likes to the next and latest 'trend' dubstep is shit, just as rap, and techno, little skill in warping anothers hard work to 'remix' and 'dance versions' of songs.

Dubstep? Well, you're right on one thing. Everyone should listen to at least one dubstep track.

That way, you never have to listen to another as you've heard them all.

How very ignorant of you.

It's like me saying "Death metal is shit because they basically play the same chords and the theme of their songs are all the same and there is no skill involved blah blah blah." But it isn't like that. There is obviously more to it than that.

And that's why I am having a go at you. Fair enough you don't like it, but don't just demean the whole genre. One of my friends dj and my sister has some decks and she mixes and I can tell you now it's no passing trend. It takes commitment and passion, and people mix for hours and takes practice to blend one tune to another seamlessly. And trust me, that is definitely no easy thing to do.

It also costs a lot of money to get the equipment. If you want to have decent decks you have to spend well over a 1000 and that's without the mixer, speakers and headphones; hell, my mate spent over 160 on the needles for his decks and spent in excess of 200 on headphones so he can get a better quality sound when listening. And I shouldn't forget the vinyls you need and all the other peripherals you can get. So it is quite the investment.

My friend (when not working or going to raves) spends most of his time mixing and trying to get better, listening to other DJs and trying out their techniques and seeing which works best and generally trying to better himself as a DJ.

So I respect that your opinion is that you don't like dubstep or drum and bass or dance music or rap or whatever else you don't like. Fair enough.

But don't belittle these genres by saying they require little skill when there are people who spend hours of their lives perfecting their craft.

It's just ignorant and disrespectful.

Oh and I should mention that dubstep has been around since the late 90s and rap the late 70s. Don't look like passing trends to me.
