Case in point: I am a legitimate supporter of the North American dubstep/brostep/moombahton/antigenre movement. Call him shit all you want, I think Skrillex had a good point in that Electronic isn't a genre, it's a platform. I know fuckall about actual music (and thus my opinion is valid or invalid as you want) but I really like the grassroots sort of thing that's happening with Dubstep (arriving a twisted, broken thing at its core) in North America. I love the feeling of bass in my bones. There's a lot of shit music in the genre out there, yeah, but doesn't that just make sure that the stuff that actually stands out good? I dunno. I'm just rambling.
I guess this is just an excuse to say how much I am enjoying Porter Robinson, Zedd, Datsik and Feed Me lately. It's strange to see my music taste expanding in front of my eyes. Here enjoy some links( TERRIBLE WONDERFUL MUSICCollapse )
And there's an example of some of my terrible music taste.
There is a reason
dubstep's popularity is exploding. I guess it speaks to people. Is that a problem? I dunno. Maybe. I'll deal. I just want to talk about electronic music and not have it turn into a X GENRE SUCKS sort of deal. Indulge me? I want to know what everyone liiiikes /rolls
