I like some dubstep, because it helps keep my apm up.
Oh deary me... Unfortunately that's another of those things you'll have to unlearn when you get to university (like unlearning that the sun is stationary, or that electrons are particles)... If you want some serious extra marks in your exam, pick up the Cambridge Guide to Jazz. It was about £8 on Amazon when I picked it up (decided I needed my own copy having left uni ).Zombie_Fish said:How about it being taught on the A Level Music Technology syllabus? Whilst I'm willing to accept that its definitive origins weren't there, it's known that Jazz was played by bands in red light districts before the success of big band music.
yeah, I may have over reactedCrazycat690 said:First, I want to introduce to you the fact that people exaggerate for effect. I don't literally think that just because a otherwise pleasant individual as yourself can enjoy dubstep, doesn't mean you are dumb.Vault101 said:for.....fuck.....sake
just because somone can enjoy somthing you deem to be "less of quality" does not automatically make them a brainless dumbass...I can enjoy dubstep, I can also enjoy other types of music, (and BTW everyone has been saying this about pop-music and other popular mass apeal stuff for ageis, its nothing new)
am I saying "OMG dubstep is the best type of music EVAR!!!"? no, I enjoy it when Im in the mood for it, it may seem incomprehensible to somone with (obviously) suprior taste in music, but for some reason alot of people...both stupid and smart do
just like as much as I hate twilight I'm not about to assume everyone who likes it is a completle dumbass
Second, my point was also that I don't want to hear it everywhere, it's become so popular that they cram it into where it don't belong, like AC and Uncharted trailers.
Third, I still want it to disappear.
And finally, I didn't mean to insult anyone, well, execpt those who worship dubstep I suppose, although this thread fueled old hate for dubstep that came into play here. So I was myself kinda pissed off when I wrote that, which appearently pissed you off a bit, so I suppose it's my duty as a good citizen to apologize if you were offended.
Ah, my bad. Also makes it a good thing I'm currently studying Computer Science and not Music at Uni in that case.phazaar said:Oh deary me...

Jazz was probably played by bands in the red light district, but so was classical; they simply played the music of the day, much like strip clubs now In a dozen essays on it, I've never once read anyone suggest it was even slightly influencial.
sorry but your definition of music is way to limited. what about chiptune?kittii-chan 300 said:but it isnt actualy 'music'. it is an assortment of special computerized effects and electric beats. my personal definition of music is: an assortment of notes played by instruments. maybe if all the effects were done by guitars with chaos pedals or something it would be deemed as music by me but it is a digitally created sound.EternalFacepalm said:I stopped reading at "it's not music", as that phrase is pretty much only uttered by morons.Shark Wrangler said:The music sucks and it will go away very soon. Hate this kind of crap with a passion and its not music. Everybody knows that this crap is just club music. Go out and dance to this garbage while getting very drunk. You go home with some random person and and hate yourself in the morning. Very much like to think this stuff plays in hell when you first enter.
People listen to it because they like it. You might not like it, but they do.
OT: some of it is ok at a stretch. but most dubstep i have heard is just the title repeated over and over again in different pitched distorted voices with the electric effects going on in the background. all of the ones i have seen on youtube have the same video too. a circle with "UKF" or something that spins around sometimes.
I dont think many of the people that listen to it actually like it much. i have never seen someone actually listen to a full dubstep song without switching too another one every minute.
on the brighter side of these dubstep videos: no justin beiber comments!
PS: it's not nice to call other people morons T_T
