America vs UK

Post by Ericcloud » Thu Nov 11, 2010 10:16 pm

Many people say they like UK dubstep 10x more than American dubstep. I personally don't see what makes them so different, but I tend to like American stuff more.

What do you guys prefer and why?

I live in the U.S. and when I started listening to this music (end of 2007), the tunes I liked were from UK producers. Before that, my favorite d&b producers were also not from the U.S.

In my opinion, currently, there are more artists from the UK that are pushing the sound, experimenting, and combining different styles. I try to seek out these artists.

Big up Starkey and a few others from the U.S., but the artists I mainly like are from the UK and other countries besides the United States.

True, both countries have people pushing the genre further with original sounds, and both have watered down generic artists. The UK does have a much bigger scene though, so most producers I listen to tend to be from there.

At some shows in the U.S., I've seen glow sticks, hula-hoopers and molly.

This definitely make me less interested in the scene here as well.

Thats true, I don't like that stuff either. But I have been to a lot of good dubstep shows- I guess it just depends on the artist sometimes, too

The hula-hoopers are the worst. I plan on walking in to one to get them banned from all shows.

Both America and the UK have great producers and djs

However it does seem that my favourite producers are from the UK

Not saying American's are worse producers. Just seems to be personal preference or maybe coincidental. I dunno. Just seems UK guys more often capture what I want personally in dubstep.

No he's right. Hula Hoopers can fuck off

I've never ever seen one at a show. It just seems the worst idea imaginable though

I looove both, though I do think they generally drift towards different sounds. Eastern europeans gettin in the sound too are great. I tend to get excited when an american starts makin noise because the scene here has yet to take off, and then you get artists like bassnectar who do a lot more of fusing genres, which I drift towards.

Where do you live? The scene seems pretty big in the U.S.

Illinois. I know it's big in Cali and Colorado, but I haven't found a consistent dubstep venue round these parts.
