late to this, and the "serious thoughts" portion of this thread seems to have run its course for the moment, but this music is a hell of a lot of fun, and i'm having a hard time seeing why it might be so bad and hated. thought i'm probably too old to really gi and will never be a serious fan, when i'm in the proper frame of mind, i like the joyfully anthemic melodies, the choppy adhd comedy and the ridiculous heavy metal bass drops equally.

diamonddave85 on "scary monsters and nice sprites":

...those are mall metal breakdown beats! just imagine those beats being played with a double-bass drum and the wobble bass being a chuggachugga guitar riff and you have a straight up screamo breakdown.

otm. first thing i thought when i heard the big bass in "cinema" was "o shit, that's a metal guitar part!" a lot of this does seem filtered through a nu metal/screamo sensibility, but it's way more generous and inviting than most of that stuff. skrillex's best move, imo, is that he jettisons the angsty, narcissistic ear punishment that so much teen rebel noise trades in, whether rock or electronic, while managing to retain the supercharged, jumparound intensity.

there's a lot of grousing upthread by people who fw this part but not that one. when it comes to tracks like "cinema" and "rock n roll", i like each element on its own but love the way they support one another. suspense gathers behind the sunny melodies when you know that mosh bass is about to wobble down and wreck the room, and the poptones are all the more lovely when they glisten back up out of a heap of broken speakers.

can's see why anybody who ever dug the prodigy, the chemical brothers or primal scream would have trouble clearing a bit of aesthetic space for skrillex.

Prodigy maybe, but I don't see anything Skrillex is doing to be on par with the Chems or Primal Scream, both of whom have done way more than just Dig or XTRMNTR. I mean all the "big beat" Chems stuff amounts to like 6-7 tracks

Listening to this for the first time. Weirdly like Owl City's goth brother.

Or like, a Skrillex seal of approval on that blowjob. Some poor woman doesn't know what's lurking for her under those basketball shorts.

I retract any half-hearted defense of him I've ever made.

Maybe he has worked with or collaborated with individuals who are able to drop this word and he's just sitting there being sad

then again, maybe those people were members of korn

mh, Sunday, 5 February 2012 04:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

maybe he means he wants to employ the "ESTE ES NIGGAAAAA" sample right before a drop

^This statement sums up the warped grasp of racism that my generation (and younger) has.

Who cares about history or other people's feelings? I as a white person need to say the "N" word badly.
