I feel as though friends and acquaintances Have been trying to shove Noisia down my throat like Cod liver oil in an orphanage these last few years. So far I've pretty much resisted because, well, it's a racket I'm never really in the mood for, but it's funny we're only just discussing this now.

michael bay-step == pretends to have a plot, actually just hyperactive genre cliches replayed fast enough and poorly enough?

I'm hanging on to "brastep" for girly stuff.

Love that cartoon upthread. At this point people sniffily defending real dubstep are perhaps more of a problem than LISTEN TO DUBSTEP bros vomiting all over their computer speakers.

I feel sorry for the DEFEND REAL DUBSTEP types not cause brostep usurped their thunder so much as cause they don't realize their music sux too.

turfin' bird (The Reverend), Wednesday, 5 October 2011 23:41 (3 years ago) Permalink

what is "real dubstep" according to these types?

It's a moving goalpost I think. There are people who defend the real dubstep of benga/skream from the rank broisms of skrillex et. al. but this strikes me as fairly narc of sd.

The cartoon is probably about people who miss the glory days of DMZ and nowadays collect Swamp 81 records.

Tim F, Thursday, 6 October 2011 01:07 (3 years ago) Permalink

i ask because there seem to be many def'ns of "real dubstep". is it skream? rusko? youngsta?

all are plying rather different trades these days

funk master friendly (moonship journey to baja), Thursday, 6 October 2011 01:11 (3 years ago) Permalink

Agreed.

But in this sense it's not really any different to people talking about "real" house / techno / jungle / trance etc.

Perhaps a sign of a genre's maturity when this happens. A bit scary to think that the first officially-designated "dubstep" mix (that I'm aware of) is now almost 10 years old.

dubstep allstars 1?

funk master friendly (moonship journey to baja), Thursday, 6 October 2011 01:22 (3 years ago) Permalink

Kode9 did a mix just called "Dubstep" I think in early 2002 - the follow-up to the excellent "21st Century Skank" mix which was dubstep avant la lettre.

DA1 came out in 2004.

Tim F, Thursday, 6 October 2011 01:43 (3 years ago) Permalink

That was back when people were still talking about "yardcore" and "nu-dark swing" et. al.

Tim F, Thursday, 6 October 2011 01:47 (3 years ago) Permalink

first use of the term?

They don't mention the mix but do refer to Kode9's radio show at that time.

Tim F, Thursday, 6 October 2011 01:55 (3 years ago) Permalink

Tim is right that the DRD kru carries various banners, but I seem to hear a lot of "Fuck Skrillex, I listen to Shackleton!", who is alright and all but zzzzzz

turfin' bird (The Reverend), Thursday, 6 October 2011 01:56 (3 years ago) Permalink

see that's interesting to me because i don't even think of shackleton as dubstep!

funk master friendly (moonship journey to baja), Thursday, 6 October 2011 01:59 (3 years ago) Permalink

Well he's not really any more. Obv he was totally dubstep on his early releases.

One of the issues here as well is that you get a lot of people who have gotten on board with dubstep since 2008 or so and then have worked backwards to the earlier stuff so when they talk in hushed tones about Loefah and Mala they're like to be talking about "Anti-War Dub" or w/e rather than 2011 material.

In much the same way that people getting into dubstep circa 2005 were talking in hushed tones about Steve Gurley and El-B.

The difference being that the official history of dubstep has been so thoroughly prepared and documented (take a bow blackdown!) that a neophyte can pretty quickly get a historical perspective on earlier dubstep without missing the point entirely.

Tim F, Thursday, 6 October 2011 02:07 (3 years ago) Permalink

I haven't really heard Shackleton's recent material, but yeah, he was totally dubstep at least at one point.

turfin' bird (The Reverend), Thursday, 6 October 2011 02:10 (3 years ago) Permalink

People I heard associated w/dubstep, not pre-dubstep per se (like Horsepower Productions):

Various, Digital Mystikz, Loefah, Mala, Coki, Benga, Distance, Hatcha, Skream

Honestly, anyone who had a name ending in "a" and I kind of felt embarrassed about saying their name, but I'm north american.

Shackleton's always been "post-dubstep" or at least outer reaches. After crossing w/other material he veered off, imo.

"Roots of Dubstep":

Why would Shackleton's early material be any more "outer reaches" than, say, Mala?

I mean if the definition of dubstep is basically Benga/Skream/Distance, then, sure, but at that point I think my narc of sd point seriously applies vis a vis Skrillex etc.

I guess I might be extrapolating Shackleton's later stuff to his early ones. He kind of had the Mordant Music thing, then the Shackleton/Appleblim Skull Disco roadshow, right?

so i was at the punk rock pizza shop, and looking at all the fliers on the wall, and buried in amongst 1000s of indie / punk / hardcore shows and 100s of indie / electro / hip hop i see two lonely DUBSTEP nights, both at the same club, a place on the edge of downtown popular with yelpers and style bloggers that programs "hip hop / reggae / funk / soul" or "indie / electro" or "house / tech house" every other night of the month.

the first crew is called SNIPAZ

the second crew is called MAYHEM

which do i go see?

SNIPAZ will prob have more girls & ppl on drugs but MAYHEM will prob be more of a spectacle
