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.

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 (3 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 (3 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 (3 years ago) Permalink

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

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 (3 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 (3 years ago) Permalink

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

Matt DC, Saturday, 20 August 2011 17:34 (3 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:

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.

fauxmarc, Tuesday, 23 August 2011 13:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

- not from the music alone, but because they're one of the few um, forward-thinking or whatev labels that have interaction with the queer community which is significantly unbrolike brok

fauxmarc, Tuesday, 23 August 2011 13:42 (3 years ago) Permalink

Brostep is just post-Caspa, post-Pendulum, made-in-a-flash, just-plain-bad dubstep with not much "dub" and not a lot of step - slowed down jump up drum'n'bass with wacky samples from action movies or featuring some TV theme or 80s hit crowbarred in there somewhere.

FTR I actually have (or had?) a fair bit of time for Caspa - he was one of the first to do this kind of hard-'n'-heavy dubstep, and that's all fair enough, especially since he makes it relatively interesting from what I've heard. But now there's an increasing amount of terrible stuff - peaking this summer. It'll be like the opening chords from the Cheers theme tune "unexepctedly" interrupted by "BBBOOOOOMM-beeeerrrrrr-BOOOOOMMM-beeeerrrr-Eeeeh-eeeeh-eeeeh wouldn't you like to get awa-BOOOOOOOOMM-beeeeerrrrrrrr-eeeh-eeeh-eeeh-And they're always glad you-BOOM BOOM WHEEEEERRRRRR". Anyway, stuff like that. I don't normally get annoyed about it but it changes people's opinions of what dubstep is, and kind of makes me embarrassed to say I like dubstep these days.

is the Nero - Welcome Reality album brostep or is it too smart to be brostep or what is the deal?

It's brostep.

but poppy brostep.

is brostep still "boring dubstep" or is all dubstep boring/brostep now?

what do you think?

mr peabody (moonship journey to baja), Thursday, 25 August 2011 16:57 (3 years ago) Permalink

that non-boring dubstep was post-dubstep before dubstep was brostep? could chuck wood.

now i get it

Kanye Borst (Kerm), Thursday, 25 August 2011 17:01 (3 years ago) Permalink

is there not non-boring dubstep that is neither bro-step nor post-dubstep? what about stuff like youngsta or distance?

mr peabody (moonship journey to baja), Thursday, 25 August 2011 17:16 (3 years ago) Permalink

i dunno, maybe stuff like horsepower productions or king midas sound?

hardcore oatmeal (Jordan), Thursday, 25 August 2011 17:36 (3 years ago) Permalink

Sully's album's worth a spin, although that's going into more 2-step revival territory. The new Zomby is surprisingly dancey and non-crazy
