I have no evidence to back up this claim, but I’m pretty sure it’s true.
I was in on the first wave when it started getting some play, but never really got Skrillex. There were a handful of songs on the dubstep Pandora mix that got me, but it just wasn’t my thing overall.
It started popping up in TV and movies, and it works in that way. But then again, so did Industrial ten years ago.
I think it’s dead. Give me a new “dubstep” song that you like and I might change my mind. I think the problem was that so many people thought that they could make the shit, like it’s just noise. But the good ones aren’t just noise, it has a point to it.
This thought brought to you by lack of sleep.
