I personally like many of the songs that Skrillex has put out, as do I ALSO like more minimal, "pure" dubstep such as Skream, Benga, etc.
Basically, on ALL of these Skrillex songs on youtube, on all of the forums, on EVERYTHING, there's always some dubstep "purist" yelling about how Skrillex "isn't real dubstep," etc.
Okay. First of all, you're right, he isnt that minimal garage style stuff like Skream makes, but please explain how a song like Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites isnt dubstep. 140 bpm? yup. Kick on one, snare on 3? yup. Low register, modulated bassline? Hell yeah. Admittedly, it's a lot more layered and a lot less dark, but that's just evolution. Honestly, it's a lot tougher to create a Skrillex song than a Skream song - I re-made "Filth" by Skream perfectly on Logic in half an hour, I have yet to even get the opening for Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites right. It's fine that you don't like Skrillex, no one's asking you to - but can you please refrain from all of the straight up nasty ad homonym remarks like "ahhhh you're all f a g g o t s shitty fucking ass music not real dubstep this stupid mainstream long haired f a g g o t sucks cock."
THAT DOESNT GET ANYONE ANYWHERE.
Oh, and for the record, Skream and Skrillex are good friends:
quote from a Skream interview: "I love Skrillex. He's my boy."
And don't go after Skrillex's personality either, because he's a really nice guy - REALLY nice. And he's a really hard worker. As far as him TRYING to be mainstream goes, a quote from one of his interviews:
"I would have been happy just making a few 100 bucks a week performing at local clubs. This whole thing just kinda blew up."
And one last thing - so many of you hate on him, but all he has is love for you. He even respects you. Just think about that.
You're a fucking speng, nobody cares anything you've said, least of all Skrillex
Skrillex really doesn't give a fuck about haters either. He's earning way too much money and having way too much fun to care about anyone who isn't feeling his music. So why do YOU care? I'll tell you why, because you're a sad little man with nothing better to do.
Having said that I REALLY want to hear your version of Filth by Skream, it is no doubt going to be hilarious
Skrillex is a sick producer. I don't like much of his output but there's no doubt the man has skills. but when you're comparing him to someone like Skream, there is one fundamental difference. In 10 years I will listen to Midnight Request line and it will sound as sick as the first time I heard it. I probably won't even remember what "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" is.
