Thanks, badgerInterested in Grime? Check this thread viewtopic.php?f=7&t=169477 - fractal
Well, after seeing the thread of the link to whatever blog it was where the guy basically spent a few pages ranting about how dubstep = fart noises, my initial reaction was of course one that can be summarised by the word "tnuc". But after (slightly) more thinking, I remembered that he's right. I challenge anyone to try and listen to every release on the first page of chemical records (or any big dubstep outlet) without wanting to a shed a tear for a lost genre. He's right, its all mindless, shit, pointless, mid-range robofart basslines (thank you corpsey...) which as painful as it is, constitutes probably 90% of what gets played out, in this country at least.
But then I had another little change of heart, and realised that yeah - thats true...but anyone with any vague interest in music will get past that and find the bounty of gold underneath, that is some of the greatest electronic music producers of all time. But muppets aren't interested in that. It takes time out of their ever busy schedule of biscuits and masturbating furiously to well photoshopped cats.
Anyway. As such, we aren't going to get anywhere by calling them stnuc. But it would be pretty tits if we could link them to a thread with nothing but audio links to real, musical dubstep. None of this new wave of mind blowingly shit music. I know its not an easy thing to do, as everyone is going to have different ideas on what they would call "music" within dubstep, but as a guide...kick on 1st + snare on 3rd + bassline isn't what were after. As ironic as that is.
I know this is just a vague variation on about a million other threads, but I know id use it all the time to link people to who have a bad preconception of what dubstep is (as long as its kept fairly derail/tripe free!) Its worth a shot anyway, as it saves a moderate amount of legwork from me that if this goes wrong ill probably end up doing for myself...whatever, its ball rolling time.
Bloody hell, making this list made me realise how little of what I listen to is really "dubstep"...oh, and neverland has been ommited because I don't think theres such thing as a youtube rip of that tune worth listening to. I tried to stay away from stuff thats not quite so purist "dubstep".
...sorry to anyones browser I just crashed. But ya know, it aint meant to be no fuck about list. Now everyone else, fill in the (epic) gaps!
Oh yeah, and good call from fractal...changed the name to something a little less provocative lol Open to better suggestions though.
