concept of the week: "bass-stardization"
"Skrillex, and Bassnectar’s hyper-masculine “bass-tardizations” of London’s originally minimalist dubstep"
i like that coinage a lot
it is interesting how the poptimist / inverse-snobbery / trolling-the-purists position is to claim to prefer Skillrex/brostep to proper dubstep/tastefulness-anemicized-postdubstep
hey, i patented that move!
original wobble-defender me
actually i'm more like John Kerry, I was against the Wobble, before i was in favour of it
circa-2006 wobble was oppressive and boring (when it was minimal wobble)
2009-onwards diorrhea/vomit-splattery wobble is A/ bit of a blast, bit of gabba-cartoony laugh B/ the populist option needing defence from the Taste Police
it's all about timing, see
now the poptimists are on it, i shall have to drop it like a hot potato though
this really ought to un-cooptable though, seeing as the Doors are like Rockism-in-excelsis
never struck me that there's an actual musical affinitity there, the baroquely overwraught Basslines actually not unlike Manzarek's keyboard solos -
not enough Doors in this though
back to that piece
i don't think i've even heard one bit of K-pop
its celebrants put me off
maybe i should give it a go, though, if it's "maximalist"
