I never thought I'd be saying this, but I fucking hate how mainstream dubstep has become. It used to be this amazing, underground thing with people pumping out great music all the time. Now it's like every pop song needs to have the stereotypical 'dubstep' break in it somewhere, even the new Muse track has a sort of dub-ey bassline through it.
Every other 12 year old girl will tell you she loves dubstep, then when you, as an adult, say that you like it people think you mean the same shit.

I think it should be a requirement for anyone that says they like dubstep to come to a proper night in Bristol, see if they still like it in the morning :lol:

There are millions of people who have made that complaint though when their chosen (normally slightly subversive) genre achieves commercial recognition. Assimilation into the mainstream is inevitable for any type of music with a significant following. In fact, I would say that it's a key indicator of a genre's success when pop producers begin to work components of it into their artist's songs.

For that reason alone I would say that dubstep is absolutely the defining breakthrough of the past decade (although has it been around quite long enough to have achieved an entire decade of dominance? I'm not sure).

Besides, I'd credit people with enough basic knowledge to not automatically assume you're a Skrillex fan just because you enjoy dubstep. I'm a fan of hip hop music, and it's not often I'm assumed to be an Example fan by extension.

I'm not sure these bands have either the following or the influence to really push their genre into the forefront of people's musical consciousness.

Yea you're right, it still irks me to hear kids chatting about "that sick drop bro".

Am I missing something or is there no musical identity whatsoever over the past 12 years? Everything is a rehash of something that has happened before, there is no real musical identity anymore. Are people too apathetic these days?

My take on it:
20's, 30's & 40's = Jazz and Swing
50's = Rock and Roll - invention of the electric guitar, black influence on Amercan white kids
60's = Motown and Guitar Bands / Mods and Rockers - hippies and shit drugs man it's like out there wow
70's = Disco + ska/reggae/dub & punk
80's = Electro / New Romantic (wtf happened here?) 89 onwards (electronic) rave culture emerges
90's = Grunge and Dance + rave and pop
00's music has become overly commercialised, the internet allows people to find their own niche, past present or future so there is no one unifying sound.
10's file sharing begins/has killed the major labels and commercial music. The music industry is forced to reinvent itself and performance again becomes the main focus of the music industry, as per before the invention of recorded music. Recorded music changed everything. File sharing changed everything. My time is up, I could go on forever...

Boards of Canada are one of the most listened to artists... and unknowingly to the listener too.
BBC use their music in an absolute dickload of programs, most notably, Top Gear.

But yeah, EDM is one of the few genre's to really be unique since the early 90's

I'd love to see some teens wearing really stupid clothes and listening to stuff I thought was 'just a noise'

Doesn't seem to happen anymore, all a bit homogonised. In fact they seem to be more interested in 'keeping fit' and 'not drinking'.
Glad I'll be well out of the way when half the population are slightly dull hundred year olds who can remember everything.

Come on kids! fuck shit up!
