Not everyones cup of tea. Same with EDM. I happen to be a fan of them both

And yeah, "Darkstep" is what people who listen to brostep, call dubstep. Dubstep started out having a dark vibe, hen the electro influence made it brostep.... not so dark. Grimey, sure. but the dark vibe is LONG gone in the popular dubstep scene nowadays. 

 

Yeah, Noah D is American, you're right. I more or less said that cuz of the ratio of American electro-dubstep being so huge compared to the original dubstep vibe being held down by the UK scene.

Yea, I like the older DARK Dub Step. Skream was nice because he had nice CHerry Highs over that dark bass. There is "Dark DnB" or "Corn n Bass" which is... cool as well. Current Value is nice on a Mid  Bass Heavy can

I hate Dub Step. The only type of EDM I like is Deep House. And there's where I need THAT bass! atsmile.gif

Lol what is corn and bass?

as for intrumental, Bass heavy Metal, I suggest Pelican, and Isis is really great audiophile type metal, though the vocals are back and forth melodic and growling. I'm one of those people who doesn't care for lyrical value so much as vocals as an instrument, which is mostly why rap and hip hop have never been my thing

Thrash, speed, death, black, doom, groove, power, math, progressive, post-, melodic death, blackened death, viking, folk, celtic, glam, NWOBHM, NWOAHM, -core... etc, etc, and any combination of them all. 


yea i remember at the time i could tell "cult black metal" apart from "depressive black metal" just by hearing. iv left the metal scene far behind though... if were talking about bass heavy metal, i remember the technical stuff was pretty good at that. all the technical death/ match core stuff. and i agree with you on that "vocals as an instrument" thing too btw.

The way you describe Dubstep now reminds me of what Hardstyle used to be.  Before EDM blew up in the states (again), you could hardly find a Hardstyle track without the traditional kick (Sucksess by TNT vs Kutski for example).  Nowadays Hardstyle went a bit softer in an attempt to go more mainstream ("Gimme Love" - Noisecontrollers).  I still like it.  I just wished it lived up to its name more.

 

lol kinda sounds like Dubstep now has been split into "Dubstep" and "Happy Dubstep", kinda like Hardcore & Happy Hardcore.

Where the hell did they get the name "Brostep" from?

I have a theory....

 

Jersey Shore's popularity kinda made the club scene grow - I've seen it, I promote for clubs in Toronto. At the same time, it got people into new genres. But this jump up style of dubstep seems to attract a lot of electro house fans, and if you've ever been to a club that's got an electro night going, you know it's full of orange skinned Jersey Shore wannabes, and those DJs play plenty of dubstep. Skrillex, also started out making electro, not dubstep. So Skrillex is popular in the electro scene as well.

 

It all comes down to the crowd, and how the guys who 'rage' (since dancing to dubstep is borderline impossible) on the dancefloor, are not ravers, they're clubbers. "That was a sick track BRO" "Gimmie another jagerbomb, BRO" "BRO! GET OFF MY GIRL BRO!"

 

Also note that wearing ALL neon was not a big thing in the rave scene until dubstep became popular. You can tell ravers from clubbers by how much neon is going on lol.

At WEMF '12, when Bad Company was up, this group of neon clad juicehead bros came up to the front of the stage stood there for 20 second pumping their fists, turned around and watchd the crowd of junglists rinsing out, and left. This was defintely not their DJ.

 

anyways I'm rambling a little bit. No offense to any clubbers in here, just I noticed a trend, and it's the clubbers that go raving to Rusko who helped coin the term 'brostep'

That's an interesting story.  Personally I like many many sub-genres of EDM.  "Brostep", House, Electro House, Progressive, Trance, D&B, etc. but it is funny how EDM blew up in the states when it all started in Chicago around 30 years ago.  Hopefully people will stop calling it "Techno" now XD

I thought it was all Skrillex's fault, everytime I tell some one I listen to dubstep, they go: "oh like Skrillex"... facepalm every time.
Shame about Rusko, his earlier stuff was pretty good.

I tend to stay away from people that are stuck on the mainstream :P especially since Pop music is trying so hard to sound like a House track.

Rusko's DJing is top notch, won't lie, just not a fan of his selection, or style. at WEMF '11 he played his set particularly fast, around 150bpm, and it was actually danceable. But yeah, it's a shame Skrillex is the house hold dubstep name and not say... Youngsta, or Skream and Benga.

Haha It's still amusing when people say techno. I usually tell them my favourites are Mr. Oizo and Darude.

Holy god damned ****, we would get along perfectly. I grew up with that music as well, and while people in my small village hated it, I loved it. In fact, while I started listening to techno (yep, that's pretty much what we called almost all EDM back in the day, and by techno I mean artists like Chimo Bayo, Juno Reacto and so on) 90's eurodance is probably the one and only thing that made me get stuck in that electronic jungle. Sometimes I still dig up those old eurodance anthems on youtube and shed a tear, because god damn it, dreams will survive.
