dubstep is just noise.... dont take that the wrong way...I love dubstep! but the fact of the matter is if you were to take any single beat and play it by itself it wouldnt be considered music by 99% of the population. fun to dance too and even greater to drive too
I see, but I don't completely get your point. Burial is currently probably the most popular dubstep artist on last.fm (as you can see, he is №1 in the top of this tag now and his top track (Archangel) has more plays in weekly charts than Skrillex's top track. Not to mention Burial's popularity in other communities and medias. Do you really think most of these people who condemn dubstep never heard about Burial? I would understand if you'd offer something really new and unknown as opposite to all this Skrillex-like stuff. So why am I writing all this bullshit? Just because this Burial vs Skrillex war is already getting on nerves.
@CriticalSwitch I respect that you don't like it; my comment just goes to all the completely annoying people saying that dubstep is shit and they only know Skrillex. I just want them to know that there are other things in dubstep.
Cut the crap please, no one denies that good dubstep exists, but it's definitely not Burial (neither Skrillex, of course). Yes, Burial does have a little bit of decent tracks, but overall he is fucking overhyped, especially in these ubiquitous hipster communities. I'm so damn sick of hearing about how good he is. I just don't see what's so good about transvestite-like annoying voice samples combined with very mediocre lo-fi ambient.
To dubstep haters: I understand you hate all the drop-the-bass brostep stuff, but please, check out the other styles of dubstep before criticize it as a whole. Burial is one of the greatest artists of all time and his music is beautiful and completely different to Skrillex's.
The "-step" postfix was originally used to label mid-to-late 90s drum and bass stuff ([tag]techstep[/tag], [tag]hardstep[/tag] etc.). But alright, who gives a fuck, cuz now it's all dubstep (which was invented in the early 00s, lol).
