As I have stated in a previous blog and probably will continue to state in future blogs, Dubstep is devastatingly misunderstood. I am constantly surprised by how little people know about it. Those who are unfamiliar are often (too) quick to open their mouths. Here are some of the things that dictate a facepalm:
1. “Dubstep? You mean like Deadmau5?” Deadmau5 is PROGRESSIVE HOUSE. This music has an entirely different structure and rhythm altogether.
2. “Oh yeah I love Dubstep. I listen to Skrillex all the time!” Skrillex is to Dubstep what David Guetta is to House music: a GIANT SELL-OUT POP ARTIST.
3. “All the kids these days, listening to Dubstep and whatnot.” Dubstep is actually not as popular as it is perceived to be. When was the last time you saw somebody walking around with a Dodge & Fuski shirt? Dodge & Fuski are one of the foremost Dubstep groups of the day. Does anybody know who they are?
