Could this lead to it crashing down as quickly as it has risen? Has it been around in it's current form for long enough to start doing 'This is Your Life' obituaries? Or is it's foundation as strong and long lived as Jungle was in the early to mid nineties to be able to buckle down and survive any build ups and knock downs by the media? Is this really only the beginning rather than the beginning of the end? Does this media spotlight really matter - or more importantly, would it really matter if the spotlight broke?
Or do you think the inevitable backlash (an admittedly premature taste of which was posted on Guardian's blog site) - however big or small, could cause an eventual splintering of styles? (where some of the music could shake off it's Dubstep tag and slowly morph into something totally new - both stylistically and demographically)
Is forcing something so blatantly into the public eye (by the media, not the artists) a good thing for the music (accelerating its momentum), or will it weaken it's foundation by diluting it's core, thus unwittingly making it less relevant to Underground culture, but more prevalent to Ovaltine Adverting campaigns?
Grime was hyped up and then dismissed by some (even though it still continues).
Is the hype well and truely justified? Or is hype just hot air by a minority of individuals - with the music keeping on its path regardless. Questions Questions Questions.
