Re: it's finally happened then.

The trollings all good but would anyone have thought when it all started there would have ever been a tune with dubstep elements that got to number 1? Although i only started listening in 07/08 i sure would'nt of thought so. Obviously its not too many peoples taste on here like myself but the devel...

LOL @ Americans killing dubstep. Perhaps my sarcasm detector is broken, however.....Its a number 1 hit in the UK, which means they ate it right up. Whose worse, the creator of shitty music, or the masses who buy it ad nauseum making it a number 1 hit?

Re: Death of Dubstep?

That blog sounds like a bunch of location based chest thumping credibility issue offloading self justification to me. Dubstep was "invented" in London? - Yeah, slapping together influences from english DnB, Hip Hop (new york) Techno (detroit) and dub (jamaica). Of course its the "yanks" that "ruined...

Re: Making classic dubstep interesting for people without su

Bass is one of the defining factors of the style. Back when Techno was starting to crest in popularity (yes, im that old, heh) there were people who would crank out these beatless soundscape toons and we had similar discussions. Some were like "how can you call this stuff techno while leaving out th...

Re: Underated Dubstep Artists

Egoless - What happened to this person? The whole "no ego no problems" thing was cool.

Zeno - making good tracks nowdays.

Max Ohm - Hear his mixes all over the place but the dubs he makes deserve more play.

Re: Burial on Top Gear

I am a lover of irony, and many of you guys are "it". You see, many people here pitch a fit when artists dont make something different, and declare it all sounds the same. The minute someone makes something that even sounds remotely different, someone jumps forward and declares it "not dubstep". Wel...

Re: What do you do if someone steals your DJ/Producer name?

Legally, you cannot copyright a name. That will be all. How many DJQs are out there? I know of quite a few and I am sure I dont know them all. Bastardizations of Ruckus Rukkus Rawkus etc... Dmitri from....where again? Deelite, New York, Paris?.... Speedy? Theres got to be one per country at least. D...

Re: better mixdowns with compressor on EVERY channel.

It does not apply to sounds that are already pre-produced samples as they are the SAME SOUND each time they are played anyhow. An example would be a snare drum sample. It is the same sample each time it comes around in the mix, and not some drummer hitting the snare slightly differently each time it...

Re: ive also got a problem

The irony here is: People complain there is nothing different going on. Too many producers use the same sounds in their music etc. Then, when someone DOES do something new, its the same tossers who jump in there and say "its not dubstep, this should be in the wonky trip hop country western cowboy st...

Biz Marquee - first to get sued over sampling.

Beasty Boys - still dealing with litigation from the 80s albums they put out.

Disney - Still one of the best derivitive artists, and biggest hypocrits, of all time.

Disney, the best derivitive artist in his day, locked everything down like a hypocrit, and its all life +70.

The royalties go to the copyright owner, which is USUALLY the label if the artist was signed.
