I recognize that a producer doesn't need to have the insane wobble bass that Skrillex uses all the time, but I don't really pick up on the shuffle in that song and it does lack almost all of the other 'trademark' features of what the kids are calling dubstep (rewinds, samples, the half-note triplet feel underneath, etc).

I try not to be a stickler for genre labels, but if I were a dubstep fan who enjoyed the music of artists like Datsik, Skrillex, and Excision (which I do ) and I asked for a recommendation of other dubstep artists I may like, that Swarms band may not be what I'm looking for at all... I dunno, at the end of the day I figure that's all that labels are really useful for anyway. I did enjoy the song, but I mean it'd be kind of like me asking for some other blues music because I enjoy the shuffle feel of Chicago blues and then being shown a Skrillex song because the bass is doing a 12/8 thing right? That's a bit of a more extreme example I guess..
Just like any other genre, there's a lot of diversity within dubstep. That type of logic is like me trying to argue that Portal or Ulcerate aren't metal, because if a Metallica fan was looking for recommendations it wouldn't be the same style.

Two step and half step shuffles are very evident throughout the record and so is the one drop on the bass, and if you look back at the origins of dubstep around 98/99 this would fit in decently there. Obviously there are other styles involved, there's a distinct ambient and even post rock influence on the record but at its core its all built around the shuffle and the bass drop.

I mean if you say that Swarms isn't dubstep at its core then you have to say the same about artists like James Blake (self titled album in particular), Distance, Submotion Orchestra, etc. It's not even that far aesthetically from an album like Untrue, and that's widely regarded as a classic within the genre.

Also, while characteristics of popular modern dubstep, samples, rewinds, and the triplet feel are not essential characteristics of the genre as a whole. Besides, Swarms feature plenty of samples.

/music rant

Just got back from the Oilers/Flames game. TBH, I can't wait till Friday's game against the Oilers. **** the Red Wings and every other team in between

I have a blood-curdling disdain with the teams in our division. I can't get over how much I really just hate the Flames, Oilers, Canucks, and Wild. However my bottom two hated teams are the Ducks and Stars... God I hate those teams with a malicious passion.

EDIT: Holy **** G2P calm down bro. Go to bed.

Maybe my foreign ass is missing something, but that sentence passes for english according to the vast majority of the population of this great nation. Plus I'm not entirely sober which adversely effects my grammar, only when it comes to english and russian though, weirdly my grammar in german doesn't really change unless I'm absolutely ****faced. That said, Dubstep still sucks at trance levels, I fully admit this may be my fault for not rolling everytime I here it, but I'm going to still hold that against the genre.

No, the lexicon was terrible.

You should say: God damn dubstep does suck.

Uh, no, that's even worse. The original was not great, but that's worse.

Ideally it would be

"God damn it, dubstep sucks"

His was basically "Does dubstep ever suck" which is perfectly fine.

I haven't liked a single music video in these GDT. I guess I'm too old to like this sorta music. As far as arena music goes, I like the wild and ducks. They play a lot of 80s rock.

You're not too old, you just don't have bad taste. At least, not THAT kind of bad taste.

He said he went to the oilers/flames game in one of the first posts on this page.



Anyway, I really hope the Avs beat the wings. I know there isn't a rivalry between them anymore but I definately still hate them. Plus sacco probably won't be gone regardless so we need the win.

Well that's mean. What if I didn't live in the US? I might've believed you.
