what the fuck? my thread was merged with this one, and my link to the Monolake RA was cast aside?

i'm sorry if the mods are tired of reading Skrillex threads. that article was brilliant, and pretty much pinpoints the worth of Skrillex.

here's the article for all who missed

Really good read, thanks for sharin'. I found this bit really interesting:

RA wrote:You seem very passionate about the mastering process. You have an interview with Rashad where you go in-depth in explaining it.

[Henke] Well, I guess it goes back to Skrillex. What makes it so exhausting? To me, what makes this type of music so exhausting is the fact that it's completely in your face all the time. Imagine something like Skrillex where the cheesy piano parts have low volume and then the drop comes and the bassline stuff doesn't occupy the whole spectrum. It wouldn't work. The new dubstep aesthetic is having a bassline which fills up the whole frequency range. While, if you look back and listen to the UK dubstep from six years ago, the bass was a sine wave. If you have laptop speakers, the old stuff simply isn't there.

Skrillex's basslines have five million overtones, which will even translate to the speaker of your cellphone. That's what makes it work on a commercial level: The fact that it's completely flat and full-scale all the time. What excites me, and what I like, are the holes. The silences. There are parts in the music, which are empty and then it becomes full again. And mastering has a lot to do with that.


Which ties in to the whole Loudness Wars thing too... the lowest common denominator being the "bigness" of the sound coming out of progressively shittier/smaller playback setups, and why sidechain abuse is actually in vogue right now.

I've come to realise recently that this was the common theme in songs/music/tunes that I like a lot. The silences, the spaces, the gaps.

Nothing wrong Sonika dont take it as offence ur doing well for ur age not wasting ur time but putting lots of time in ur hobby but I am sick of seeing your opinions about the dubstep scene when u dont know what it's like, ur friends are not the dubstep scene. All my love to you being a young producer though :)

By the time I was 18, I was an old man.
So don't grow up too fast. You're trying really hard and its showing you're still a youngling. Give it some time, go to some events, listen to some other music as well,...step outside the box first.

Be a kid. Take your time and don't waste all of your time on this forum!!

Ps. Good advice

This thread: 71 pages / 59 days --- 1.2 pg/day
Youngsta: 482 pages / 813 days --- 0.6 pg/day

Expected time to hit 500 pages

This thread: 429/1.2 = 358 days
Youngsta: 18/.6 = 30 days

It seems as though we are safe for now
