Why do you think his thoery is complex? The songs that i've listened to by him, seem like typical chord progressions, with the occasional cool little synth line. Am i missing some masterpiece of the skrill?

he figures out most of his tracks on piano or guitar before he produces them, or atleast he did for the first album he put out
some of the little licks and chord progressions are really well done, the melody lines on his vocals are crazy aswell
its hard to spot it through the heavyness but its there. im no skrillex fanboy before you ask

Oh i agree, his songs sound good when their not just a clusterfuck of bass sounds (for the most part), but i haven't really spotted anything i would call complex. Like, some unexpected chord change that changes the feel, or mood, or like, any mind-blowing intricacies in the syths or drums. Again, i haven't listened to most of his catalouge (I've only liked Scary Monsters, Scatta, and.... something else :lol: ) so if you could post an example, i would appreciate it man.

Have a listen to Macka who has released (and will again very shortly) on Broken Bubble.Check these ones for starters...





Gravious got mentioned earlier as well, he's definitely pushing that melodic envelope further than your average stepper - again here's a couple that we've put out...

The vocal edits are nice, but aside from that I'm hearing nothing you wouldn't here in some progressive house/trance song. My contribution While it's 3 different people playing it's still sick

Vexare is only 16 and has been playing piano for years his tracks feature some of the sickest melodic work ive heard (listen to the second drop on this) -



Also check out Blackmill he has some really chillout melodic stuff, and like a few people mentioned Phaleah is a genius!

Not sure if serious.... Haha. This song sounds good, don't get me wrong. I get why people like it. But theoretically impressive? Nah.

Usually not a dubstep producer but The Flashbulb came up with quite an amazing dubstep tune :


Too few releases so far but quite a fine sense of melody :
