Dubstep & Dance

Post by nousd » Wed Jan 16, 2008 4:25 am

Head-banging, pogoing, voguing, grooving, hippy spirals, minimal shuffles, skanking? Is dubstep what twostep wasn't... IDM?

oh dear

hippy spirals and voguing? i'm pretty sure that's not dubstep. and are you saying that because dubstep isn't two step (which sometimes it is) it's IDM? i don't really get the logic there

I'd say the Making the Band, Real Real World, black white supremacist and black Bush are fucking awesome though.

I do find him very funny to be honest, worth checking his standup too.

Was Rephlex at any time really dance music for the brain? I don't know. You tell me.

Honestly, after boogy-in to many styles o tunes, I find Dubstep the most variable. So many different tempos. It was a rare sight before dubstep parties by lighta! here in van that I'd see a crowd all groovin in time together as a crowd, but to completely different tempos by individual terms. It seems to happen all the time with the dubstep.

I've worked up just as big a sweat ona dubstep floor as I have on a dnb floor, but at least on the dubstep floor, I could slow down, catch my breath, yet keep dancing.

That's why it frustrates me so when gabber and dnb peeps slag dubstep for being too slow to dance to. they just can't adapt their rhythmn

The gabber dance is a scary place to be, or at least it was 12 years ago. Didn't know it still went on to be honest. Maybe its different stateside. And yeah, I can't imagine that lot being the most adaptable, rhythm wise, it has to be said.

I consider myself lucky enough to have never gone to a gabber or hardcore dance in person.....just met a few Brit ex-pats who loved the shit, a couple happy hardcore lovers from here in can, and seen some awful videos of these people 'dancing'. everyone seemed panicked and trying to catch up to the noise, and failing.

The genre never really caught on to well here in van....too many stoners

Yeah. Idiosyncratic Dance Meridian. Occasionally embracing drunken stupefaction (if not involved, time to sit and watch) and tolerance of burnt toasting (chill or leave).
