Do you use SoulSeek, Ian? I just did a search for Datsik and tons of their shit pops up (and the dude I'm DLing off of is going at 630 k/s!).

If you haven't used SoulSeek, you definitely need to get it as you can find some really rare shit on there. I'm not sure if there is a puss- I mean, Mac version, but if they don't I strongly suggest going as far as setting up a VM to run windows so that you can use SLSK (and if you did, then you'd be able to use those music programs we discussed).

You guys heard of Vex'd?

Man, have you guys heard Bong Ra's other projects? The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation and The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble? Awesome stuff.



YYYYYYYES!

Just got their hoodie, brilliant looking stuff and Here Be Dragons is THE chill-album this month so far. Also, be sure to check out their (TKDE) cover of Saint Vitus' Patra!

Damn, I always just look for torrents and have been having trouble with them. I'll check out SoulSeek and see if it works.

Damn, there's enough info in this thread to keep me occupied for a while!

Damn, I start my sentences with damn.

That's some scary Dubstep there. Never heard of him before. Definitely more of a "hypnotic" sounding dubstep, though. Not a whole lot of change, but still cool.

EDIT: Dylan, just checked soulseek... it doesn't support HOW AWESOME MACINTOSH COMPUTERS ARE.

I'm not really into dubstep but Borgore owns the genre.

Now get on your knees and worship me for bringing you this amazing stuff;) not quite sure if it's dubstep but it still kicks ass. BTW it's Napalm death drummer

Totally agreed. Some tracks are pretty weird but most of the stuff is just WABBABABABABABABABABBABABBBBAAAA (kickass).

Ahaha, yeah. I liked Dubstep for the first 4 songs until I realized that its pretty uninvented.

That's the reason why I never gave dubstep a chance.

estringrev 2011-11-06 21:02

So I've checked out the Dubstep artists listed in this thread and managed to only find a few things I like by each one.. At the top of the list is Against the Machines, and some other Downlink stuff.

Seems like this genre has the potential to be really nice, but the majority of stuff I come across is way too repetitive or just sounds bad.

Dyldo 2011-11-06 21:18

After having spent around a month exploring Dubstep, I can now say it is one of the most boring fucking genres of electronica. Its all the same. Its all the same. Its all the same. Its a lot like listening to most hardcore/deathcore bands. Its fucking uncreative overkill. Its just meaningless melodies filling the space between generic breakdowns. The "breakdowns" in Dubstep can be awesome, but they all sound the same and you soon realize its embarassingly predictable and not a very fullfulling or forward-thinking genre.

Also (HAHAHA): Korn to release dubstep album

If you're looking for heavy, weird mind-fucking electronica, there's much, much, much better options out there: Exhibit A. Not as "heavy breakdowny" as Dubstep, but oh-so-much more fulfilling, innovated, and interesting. And while I'm on the topic of mental electronica, check out this Aphex Twin track. The ending, around 6:54, is fucking insane, and with the right speaker positioning (headphones or a car, i.e. any scenario when the speakers are to the right and left to you) is seizure inducing. I laugh every time at the rattling it does to my brain. I know it isn't fair to put Richard D. James in the same post as Dubstep (as I don't mean to say "THIS IS WHY DUBSTEP SUCKS!"), I'm just saying because I'm listening to it right now and am slightly intoxicated. I suggest listening to the entire song though, as the theme he bring in around the 2:20 mark is the one that he fucks with at the end. My god the fucking detail RDJ puts into his music!

I don't mine something being stupid as long as it sounds good, but the majority of dubstep I've listened to fails to even meet that meager standard. Your assessment of dubstep was my impression after listening to a fair amount of it.. I just had faith that there were some amazing artists out there because of the few tracks I came across that were very solid, but I feel at ease giving up the search after your post.

I've never really explored electronica much because the bits I've heard never captured me. The only appealing thing dubstep had was that it was basically just heavy as fuck fun music.

The last song you linked was really good.. Gonna take a few listens to let it sink in though..

Wolfsherz 2011-11-09 12:17

Only breakcore is real.

JoeYngVai 2011-11-09 15:48

Skrillex is awesome.

Dyldo 2011-11-09 15:56

I don't rike Skrillex. He bore.

estringrev: if you like that track, check out that entire album by Aphex Twin, Druqks.

JoeYngVai 2011-11-09 17:08

I like his new song "First Of The Year." That weird lead melody that happens just a couple times makes me smile. Also "Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites" is always fun to listen to. Some of his stuff is boring, though, but I'm a moderate fan.

This with good speakers is PHAT AS FUCK: Equinox

NOTE: I really want to have a nerdy discussion about writing electronic music with sequencers right now.

found a higher quality version of that piece on youtube..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FMccwa-0vA

I'm REALLY liking it after hearing a higher quality version on some semi-decent speakers.

Dyldo 2011-11-26 14:03

Nice! Yeah, you should just pick up that album if you like that track.

Dyldo 2011-12-09 11:46

Bahahaha, Justin Beiber is planning on releasing a Dubstep album also (see: Korn).
