also what fucking difference does it make if it doesnt captivate a mainstream audience... if you like DUBSTEP what the fuck do you care if its underground/not mainstream... if people dont like it so you CHANGE it? that completely makes sense...

rapper makes intelligent hip hop b/c hes tired of gangster rap
ppl only like gangster rap
rapper decides to change his mind & just make gangster rap

what do you accomplish when this happens?

looking at that OP original video list is nostalgic.

Can't help but agree that as a genre the lines between the good stuff and the more artificial stuff we're seeing on things like UKF and chemical records are blurred. There is definitely a place for the kinda thing UKF and chemical put out, but I'm not quite sure if it's the same as dubstep.

Music does evolve though, so this could just be the next phase of the genre.
yo dawg I herd you liek dubstep so we put dubstep in your dubstep

Why does it matter what Dubstep is? Whatever it is... it's completely different to whatever it was at the start. Just like all scenes that catch on, it's evolved. Equally, just like all good genres, the pigeonholing & genre-naming has produced some horrific music & threatened to kill it all together.

To quote Derrick May -
"When we started, there was no names, no techno-this or hard-style that... it was just music.

Because this is dubstep forum. Not "music forum".

All the tracks in here are dubstep. There's an eclectic mix that shows the ways in which it's evolved. I can just go and post some Jeff Mills track in here, because it's not dubstep.

Yes but my point was that it's futile trying to explain or describe a scene as diverse & fragmented as "Dubstep".

Perfect way for me to showcase my YT channel lol.

Nah, just kidding, I'm a soldier on a mission to destroy the mainstream dubstep. Some of my personal favorites.









(I absolutely detest the vocal version. In my opinion the original is much better)

There you go.

For me, it takes away something of the experience of what Asteroids (or rather Asteroids VIP) used to have when I was listening to it. Something personal I guess.

Yeah, good luck with that. I'm sure everyone who likes Modestep will change their minds after hearing Asteroids.

Let's first focus on the big fishes like Skrillex, Excision, Borgore etc. After that we can take down Modestep and such.

There are subliminal messages in every video that encourage people to kill Skrillex.
