I will say as I don't enjoy Skrillex, because he makes Break Beat not Dub Step [Dub step has it orgins in Dub music, which has origins in Regaee SO that regaee feel, that RIDIM is what makes Dub Step DUB STEP... Skrillex has no riddim]

 

EHM, whale step that sounds neat! Shoot us a link plz

*sigh* I'm not even sure I should b here to much xD. I'm not a BIG bass head any more. As I've come to enjoy mids and highs. Although I do still enjoy my Xb 700s THUNDER so <3 I'll stick around. Not to mention my dt 990s :D

I realised this has been asked many times but apparently, those questions were asked when the hps were on

discount so my qns is, Denon D2k vs D5k vs D7k when they are at their MSRP. I am confused because, Hifiguy528

said that the D7k is much better than the D5k but Tyll said that it is only a modest step up. Confused becos both

those guys have quite a rep here and in the world of audio. So..... Some inputs or recommendations? I know that

Tyll said the D7k lose out becos of its very fierce competition (eg. LCD2), is that why it isn't worth its MSRP? Some

recommendations of other hps would be appreciated too! :)

It depends on how you take upgrades... I could hear a Huge difference between the westone 3 and 4, but the booth lady heard only a subtle difference... Depends on the person.

can't believe the westone 4 has more bass and sub-bass than the panasonic hje900.

 

balanced armature(westone 4) with more bass and sub-bass than dynamic earphone(panasonic hje900). 

weird and incomprehensible.

Weston's 3 has more, but Westone 4 is a lot more balanced and transparent.

The only dubstep I listen to is from Adventure Club. They do dubstep, don't they? ph34r.gif

Sorry to say, but I would put Adventure Club on par with Skrillex, leaning closer to trap and glitch and whatever other genres and subgenres are invented each day.
Every track sounds almost the same, with the same generic synths and beats... making dubstep more generic.
Like any music genre, there are talents who have their own unique sound, who innovate and contribute to shaping or broadening a genre. And then there are those that copy, replicate, over use sounds that are "popular", etc
If you anyone is truly curious, I would recommend listening to a show(s) from N-Type on rinse fm, the shows are on tuesdays and podcasts of the show are usually uploaded the next day. He usually showcases a wide variety of dubstep styles and artist, and a large portion of the music has not yet been released. He is also a producer himself and owns a record lable. It's not the holy grail, but a proper introduction to dubstep, and what respected long time producers and newcomers alike are currently offering to the scene.
Lastly, I would highly recommend checking out Mala's last album - Mala in Cuba and Goth Trad's New Epoch, just to demonstrate two vastly different styles of high quality albums which can proudly be called dubstep.
Not trying to offend anyone or their tastes, just trying to help those that do not know and are willing to learn.

It's a great pleasure seeing Mala recommended here. beerchug.gif Been listening to his production for ages. For another recommendation of the "calm" side of dubstep I'd say Phaeleh. Very bassy and relaxing.

Mala is one of my favourite artists but I'm not sure I'd have called it dubstep or at least not most of it. I guess Skrillex etc. come under sub-genres of dubstep such as brostep or gorestep. I've always thought of Dygital Mystikz, Sukh Knight, Coki, Loefah, Skream et al to be the original dubstep acts but I don't really know.

 

What does it all matter though, music is music!

Exactly, N-Type is my favorite DJ. That guy really knows his Dub Step, and that's good to hear that he's putting out new music on a regular basis! I really loved his Utah Jazz remix as well :D

 

I also like Culprate, he reminds me of Silky with the beauty in the highs n mids, against the tight bass [some times xD]
