every time i see 'is it brostep' i think 'will it blend' and am left wanting an irrefutable test for brostepness

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

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.

i think it is the screamo / hardcore / crabcore fans who are already into noisy synth as it is

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).

Also don't get why they've gone for a grindcore font.

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.

Matt DC, Friday, 19 August 2011 11:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

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.

Merdeyeux, Friday, 19 August 2011 23:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

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

Hope you're not being ironic, but I def agree. Fuck it, if you want your dance music moshy and cartoonish, just cut to the chase and put some fuckin' Johnny Violent on!

Think Planet-Mu tried for a bit of a gabba revival a few years back, but they made it too smart. Gabba's gotta be as retarded as possible to work properly.

Hessle Audio = Brostep? Wow you guys must live very sheltered upper city lives.

Why'd You Wanna Tweet Me So Bad? (dog latin), Friday, 19 August 2011 23:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't live any kind of city life I was just visiting! But the thing I was at wasn't all Hessle Audio DJs - I don't know who most of them were - but it was, if not brostep, generally pretty harsh and filthy, with the floor of 20-year-olds clearing when anyone (like Ben UFO) went for anything different.

Merdeyeux, Friday, 19 August 2011 23:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah fair dos. i guess one's tolerance for this kind of shit drops exponentially once you hit 18.

that was wrong
so
wrong

also is this bro or yankee grime or just rap or what

Could Night Slugs possibly be considered brostep? I really want to like this song but I'm wary of how catchy it is. I'm on the horns of the hipster dilemma.

viborg, Saturday, 20 August 2011 16:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yes, Merdeyeux. We were at the same thing.

I know Hessle Audio isn't really anything like this stuff, I was talking more about the vibe of this night, which Merdeyeux adequately described.

Lophar Andreusz DeLeone (admrl), Saturday, 20 August 2011 16:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

Hessle Audio is way too interested in rhythm to be brostep.

Matt DC, Saturday, 20 August 2011 17:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

No Night Slugs is not brostep. Jeez, some of you have never been to the suburbs in your lives have you?

In other news, people are getting confused between dubstep and the Bomfunk Mcs these days it seems:

Why'd You Wanna Tweet Me So Bad? (dog latin), Tuesday, 23 August 2011 12:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'd be surprised if a Bro would even consider that Pearson Sound track (which is great btw) dubstep. Friend who came round and started playing me some of the crassest buzzsaw shit was completely unmoved when I played him the Hessle comp. They're such different sounds, it's a wonder they fall under the same umbrella.
