    I don't hate the music but of the people I've met who listen to it they are the kind of people that don't have time for anyone thats not into it. They come across extremely pathetic and quite obviously try to hard.

    I don't mind good dubstep. What I hate is the stuff they play in a club, where they take a song which usually has a fast beat, and throw in a *burrburrburrburrburrBUUUUURRRR. ..burrburrburrburrburrBUUUUURRRR ...* behind it.

    Looking round and seeing everyone dance like zombies to a song that sounds like the speakers are breaking does not give me a good vibe..

    I actually know what you mean, the tempo of dubstep is far lower than that of, say, house music. But you're going to the wrong clubs if they randomly throw in a dubstep tune in between something faster, as the first rule of being a dj is make sure your set flows. :P

    If you've got good speakers/ headphones this will sound amazing. Otherwise don't bother, you won't get the spacey sound you need.




    Burial is truly amazing.

    For me I either zone out in a sort of meditative state. Or I flood my mind full of past forgotten memories. You don't really listen to his material as music, those that do will never "get it"

    Then you're a bigot, with no taste in decent music. How can you call the track I've linked as rubbish, even if you're not a dubstep fan you'd still like them. I know it's about subjectivity, miusical taste, but they're so good it's hard to argue with their production quality and emotion they capture, let alone call them rubbish. Idiot.
    No, even as a someone who doesnt like dubstep I dont have to like them.

    I like plenty of music that the majority of people dont, and I can accept that people dont like it, regardless of the artists quality or emotion.

    For example

    Well i agree that talent is a key benefactor. And generally artists lacking in talent will sound rubbish. I listen to a large amount of electronic music and just about all of it is of very high talent.

    For the record, Maximo Park are talented, though i wouldn't say i'm into that type of music these days. Ultimately the perfection of how the drums, guitar were played were done in the 70s. I don't think anyone will ever be better in their fields as Bonham or Clapton. And Dylan is never going to not be regarded as one of the best lyricists ever. But that's just one genre end of the day. Many many more.
    Truthfully I had listened to them live (only when they were supporting the Killers) and they were a reasonably tight band, I will give you that.

    Yes, unfortunately, there will not be serious rivals to any of those spots it is an annoyance - not that good music was missed live, simply that SO much was missed. Between the 1940s and 1990s rock and metal came and achieved near perfection and then vanished the year I was born.

    Good thing is that we still get stuff like this in this century;

    It's kind of the point, he was going for this huge empty space kinda sound, filled with muffled tones and modulated voices. He was trying to recreate the sound of London at like 4am at night. When he made his first album, he told his mates to drive around the city and night and listen to it in their car. That's the perfect atmosphere to listen to Burial, I guarantee if you invest your time in checking him out, eventually it'll 'click' and you'll love him forever more.

    This is one of my favourite tunes of all time.

    Mount Eden Dubstep. I love. In-between that very chilled and nice bass line. Pisses me off when amateurs stick a 'filthy wobble' and a kick over a perfectly good song and ruin it.
    Chase & Status <3
    Magnetic Man <3
    All great artists.
    :rolleyes:

    Chase and Status=amazing, back before they collaborated with all the big names and got very mainstream, look a their old dnb like Hurt You and Take Me Away. Then Saxon and Eastern Jam, bona fide classics. But then they just got ****.

    Magnetic Man, again, far too mainstream for me to ever like them. The three artists as individuals (Benga, Skream and the little known Artwork) are most probably good producers. I know Skream is because I love his stuff, but his underground stuff.

    Now as an aspiring producer, and a listener too, I want to obviously get as successful as possible myself but stay true to the underground roots (I started off listening to Caspa and Rusko then progressed outward) but we don't hate Chase and Status because they're successful, just that they sold out the genre and served to make it mainstream. Now this point is to emphasise I don't have anything against mainstream music, I listen to the Kings of Leon like the next person, but it's just contravening the unwritten rule of underground music that you don't make as many ps as possible in the name of getting as known as possible. Chase and Status still had a big hardcore following but they weren't satisfied with that.

    Any self respecting reggae fan will lilke the older stuff, Skream's early stuff, Digital Mystikz (Haunted especially) but the thread is about the chilled stuff.

    Now anything with a vocal I'll give a chance. I've made mediocre remixes of old trance tracks and they were pretty bad. I just literally threw a wobble over a beat and an acapella. But I love remixing, some remixes. I'm a closet Jakwob fan
    But it depends how tasteful the remix is/how well produced the track is.

    OP tune is boring, if you want good chilled dubstep then the Echodub label basically specialises in it and has three compilations available for free download which are great, 'Echodub Loves Vol.1', Echodub Loves Vol.2' and 'Echodub Presents: Anechoic Chamber'.

    As for the wubstep-'true dubstep' divide, they both have their place, it's just a shame to see the 2-step roots of the genre overshadowed by this influx of DnB-inspired producers who've completely changed its vibe and yet at the same time managed to supercede the originators to the point where people would listen to Digital Mystikz, Loefah, Horsepower Productions, Kode9, Plastician etc. and contend that they are '****' producers.

    EDIT: jaydoh shows what I'm talking about with the DnB dubstep producers. I thought they were **** at DnB as well though so there you go I suppose

    It's not all about "filthy" mid range wobble.

    That goes for the kids who think it's "coo"l because it is too.

    There's some very nice chilled dubstep out there; I think people should listen to more to get out of that "OMG fil teh wobblez" idealogy.

    eg:

    I ****ing hate current dubstep!
    I really miss the older stuff! :/

    I know a few tracks of his, like Forgive, In Mcdonalds etc. I'm really diggng Koan Sound and Asa's music at the minute, espeically the Burialesque "Leave the Light On". I suggest if you like the chilled/deeper stuff by the by you subscribe to my youtube channel, me and a few guys from a music forum are running it and hoping it'll take off.

    http://www.youtube.com/dpcdubs I'd Appreciate the support, got some lovely tracks coming up.

    Well me and a few others a few ***** decided to pick out, yeah why? Don't talk like I'm some anti celebrity or something. And also, you're better of lurking on the fringes of TSR rather than getting involved with subbing and things cos there's some nasty people on here who need to stop trolling the internet and get lives.. Don't worry though that's getting dealt with.
