some dude at work who listened mostly to awful barf-rock like Nickelback and Seether and dopey novelty stuff like "I'm a Barbie Girl" blasted "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" one day. When I asked him about it, he just epcalled it 'dubstep.'

I had no idea that dubstep was going mainstream here, so I was a little impressed.

my coworkers won't shut up about turntable and mention dubstep a lot. im the other day:

how goes? I'm trying to pin down the genre of an artist, he goes by "Burial" -- electronic artist from the UK, have you by chance heard of him?
Wiki says his genre is "ambient, dubstep, house" among other things, hard to pin down -- so was just curious.

i generally just keep quiet and act like i just listen to salsa.

Urgent and key question in this debate, what sort of profile do PENDULUM have in the US? Because I think it is now the law that every teenage boy in the UK must immediately get massively into Pendulum the moment he turns 15. They're like the new Green Day.

Pendulum = obviously not brostep but an important marker the the development of testosterone dance.

i don't know if pendulum stick out or anything or just fade into the rest of that general WOMP WOMP d+b sect that's a precursor to all this

for me i prefer pendulum than dubstep

i have to say though, i had a job a year or so back where copies of kerrang were always around the office, and i was both totally surprised and not surprised at all that one of the Worst DNB Acts of All-Time had transmogrified themselves into linkin park 2.0

My non-music geek, questionable taste-having best friend tried to put me up on Pendulum.

They are absolutely huge here now. No music has ever sounded more like the inside of a teenage boy's bedroom.

the Pendulum link would make sense to me, I can imagine yr Kerrang metal-listening teen digging Skrillex with Pendulum being your natural point in between. But I have no idea if that metal -> brostep continuum really exists, in the UK at least. And have only heard of Skrillex through here and HRO.

yeah, thinking about it the line between something like Hadouken and this stuff is practically non-existent.

anyway I love this thread because I always find this kind of overwhelmingly obnoxious music hilarious for some reason. See also:

it defo does. i think i mentioned on some other thread but i went to school with a guy who was like king of nu-metal who is now produces "filthy" dubstep and seems to actually make a living from it:

That flyer looks more like what I would expect (nerdy/crunchy).

i've met nerdy crunchy d&b dudes and they are still dudes. and kinda clueless about anything other than a really narrow area of boring stuff. maybe they aren't fratboys or whatever. i dunno. the common thread is a love for tedious dance music.

Flyer suggests - sweaty, unwashed, too much time spent playing video games, only three girls in the club two of which are going out with the DJs.

This stuff is all very well if it actually does something interesting, but fuck me that MAgnetic Man album is as dull and predictable as hell. Plus I'm now allergic to Pendulum. Skrillex and Nero make me wanna take a potato peeler to my skin.

mag man is pretty predictable but still doesn't feel bro-y enough. like if skrillex was a night at the ZBT house mag man would be at like the ice hockey house on a chill beer pong night.

huh

This all explains why I went to this Hessle Audio thing in London this year and it wasn't very good and I felt too old and it was all guys 10+ years younger than me in neon rimmed raybans and polo shirts.

me too! was that mid-June sometime? We stuck around for hours hoping that Ben UFO's late set would change things, then he cleared the floor immediately and gave up after about four tracks.

I would not normally associate Hessle Audio with brostep at all.
