What up y'all... Check the link:http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/2010 ... ity-crisis
I have been pondering this question for a while & then I saw this article on the NPR blog. A few things come to mind... I am all about the deep stuff... I'm an original Dubstep head since about 2006, which is way before 99% of the people in the USA even heard the term Dubstep & way before the styles got so aggressive... Although if mixed tastefully, I can get down with the more aggressive styles as well. My question is, why is there such a negative connotation with the more aggressive styles? I mean seriously, can't we as a community come to embrace diversity and come up with a better name then "Bro-Step." It's quite obvious that the more aggressive styles of Dubstep are more appealing to male listeners, however, I don't see what's wrong with that. I am a proponent of diversity & doing what one feels in their heart. There are other styles of music that are more appealing to males such as metal, hardcore & even Jungle, as opposed to liquid DnB for example. Maybe this style would be better named by those who enjoy it, rather then those who hate on it? Maybe a better name would be "Mech-Step"... I dunno just some food for thought.
