there's more to dubstep than just skrillex by BaconMagic there's more to dubstep than just skrillex by BaconMagic
Before anyone misses the point of this and jumps on my ass, no, I don't dislike Skrillex's music. In fact I like a lot of it, but I find it a little bit sad that a lot of people claim to be 'dubstep fans' when in reality Skrillex is the only dubstep producer they know.
Listen to more dubstep (Cookie Monsta, Knife Party, Flux Pavilion, Zomboy, Datsik, Eptic and Benga are a few awesome dubstep producers, but there are many, many more), then you can call yourself a dubstep fan. :| Claiming to be a fan of a certain genre while you only know one or two artists of that genre is a really obnoxious thing to do.

I love quite a few electronic artists, actually. Pendulum, Knife Party, Skrillex, S3RL, Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Zomboy, Zedd...the list goes on and on.

I think I don't know any kind of genre, since I just enjoy the song without paying much attention to the artist. :icondontunderstandplz:

Skrillex isn't dubtsep! It sounds nothing like! How the fuck do people get confused? That's like thinking Justin Beiber is Oprah on terms of the fact that he sings. (ahem, *sings*)

It doesn't really have one, I don't think. Some are calling it "bro-step".

yeah, because though it sounds similar to dubstep, in all cases very few of the songs actually are. Mainly they are just clips of different voices and sounds mixed together to become new instruments (as heard in the song "summit").

bro-step? It really needs a new name because I resent anything with the term "bro" in it:
-bro-fist
-brony
-bro-hoof

they're all just a bunch of childish modern slang terms. Maybe they could name it something that sounds more suitable and electronic.

It's called bro-step because most Skrillex fans are bronies, I think. I resent it too.

But it sounds nothing like dubstep if you listen to dubstep that is actually dubstep, and that's hard to find these days.

I dunno, it still seems off regardless of the source, obviously the term "step" should be in there so something like mix-step, hard-step, or sound-step would be more suiting. Personally i'll just refer to the first of the 3 for now on.

well it ain't that hard to find, especially if you look for a transformers dubstep, they've got a lot of those. But agreed, it isn't that similar.
