In what way? I would say the classical music of our time is probably classical music, which people do still make.

With the Tempa thing, you've got to remember it may not be the journalist's fault - it could have been dictated down the phone, dropped in by a busy subeditor, etc.

There are a lot of journalists out there who could be writing interesting, informed things about dubstep and grime, there just aren't enough forward-thinking outlets. Incidentally, can we please get rid of this old chestnut that all music journalists want to be musicians? This could mean one of two ...

LMAO @ "journalists". Pretty much across the board, but especially in music. In music it's pretty much a case of: Those that can, do. Those that can't, pontificate cluelessly about it in magazines and on the web. Wastemen. So you like dubstep, but you'd rather there was no one around to publicise i...

therefore, a journalist or a magazine searching producer x out on the net, see's the negative comments too, and these comments can be easily taken out of context and have impact on a persons reputation. Do you really think a journalist will have his or her opinion swayed by a random, probably incoh...

So the consensus is that criticism is by nature so subjective as to be pointless, and should be kept for private conversations? I look forward to seeing that view consistently followed the next time someone brings up techstep d'n'b or funky house or NME indie.

Re: Not a byker but a hater

Music journalists grate me because they hate on things needlessly (often just to look witty), but reviews on shops are the exact opposite - everything in stock gets bigged up regardless. so take it all with a pinch of salt, and judge by what you hear. ;) the ultimate reviewer is ourselves. People d...

Oh yeah M83 was a big inspiration actually for using a basic square-wave synth (with distortion) instead of a guitar sound. I do have a Myspace page ( http://www.myspace.com/nedbeauman ) but it hasn't got any of my tracks on it. The next thing I want to do is dubstep in the style of Joy Division/The...

My attempt at 'shoestep', i.e. dubstep in the style of My Bloody Valentine or Slowdive. I expect a lot of people will hate it.
