I'll take a some here and there. Keller is playing solo, I imagine he'll work in some wubbs and a few wobbles. Dopapod can bring the wuh wuh wuh wah wah wah as well.

I'm sure you'll find some creaky knee'd west campers with a boombox getting down too.

Dub > Dubstep

Bill Laswell vs Skrillex. the choice appears simple.

while i agree entirely with your statement, let's not genre-blend here.

Brostep and American developments

In 2011, dubstep gained significant traction in the US market by way of a post-dubstep style known as brostep with the American producer Skrillex becoming something of a figurehead for the scene. In September 2011 a Spin Magazine EDM special referred to brostep as a "lurching and aggressive" variant of dubstep that has proven commercially successful in the United States.[101] Unlike traditional dubstep production styles, that emphasize sub-bass content, brostep accentuates the middle register and features "robotic fluctuations and metal-esque aggression". According to Simon Reynolds, as dubstep gained larger audiences and moved from smaller club-based venues to larger outdoor events, sub-sonic content was gradually replaced by distorted bass riffs that function roughly in the same register as the electric guitar in heavy metal.[102]
The term brostep has been used by some as a pejorative descriptor for a style of popular Americanised dubstep.[103] Dubstep purists have leveled criticisms at brostep because of its preoccupation with "hard" and aggressive sounding timbres. In the UK, brostep has been jokingly called "bruvstep" and "mid-range cack". US and Canadian artists often drew inspiration from British producers who tended to work less with sub-bass and more with mid-range sounds such as Caspa and Rusko, and Vexd.[104] Rusko himself has claimed in an interview on the BBC's 1Xtra radio show that "brostep is sort of my fault, but now I've started to hate it in a way...It's like someone screaming in your face for an hour...you don't want that."[105] Commenting on the success of American producers such as Skrillex, Skream has stated: "I think it hurts a lot of people over here because it's a UK sound, but it's been someone with influences outside the original sound that has made it a lot bigger. The bad side of that is that a lot of people will just say 'dubstep equals Skrillex'. But in all honesty it genuinely doesn't bother me. I like the music he makes."[106]
Other North American artists that have come to be associated with the brostep sound are Canadian producers Datsik and Excision. Their production style has been described by Mixmag as "a viciously harsh, yet brilliantly produced sound that appealed more to Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails fans than it did to lovers of UK garage." Other noted producers include 12th Planet and Bassnectar, who are considered by some to be early pioneers of the subgenre.[107]

My Skrillex experience was summed up perfectly at Bamboozle. 30,000 kids all partying on the beach, mostly male, drinking and laughing while "I WANT TO KILL EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD" blasted in the gorgeous sunshine. I just dont get it.

That was a good article, thanks for posting

yeah, i avoid that sh*t like the plague. meanwhile, i listen to the good stuff and it's such a blast. basically, smaller venues with artists from Europe and a ban on glow-jewelry = you're going to have fun. :lol:

yeah thats it. lol

I guess I was never angsty or angry enough to actually want to expose myself to that stuff. Different strokes.

Example - Moshing never ever made sense to me. Yes I understand the idea, I just cant get into that. Too much testoterone, macho, adrenaline.

hmmm maybe I am a pussy? lol
