Dubstep Remix? QOTD 12/5/12

Truth.

I know dubstep is more or less the music revolution of our generation,           and I’m guilty as the next hipster for digging what the music site Allmusic refers to as “tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals”. Whatever anyone says though, it’s a bunch of noise. It’s fun noise that makes you feel like a badass, but noise nonetheless. And somehow this electronic noise morphed into an entire genre, scene and lifestyle. It’s kind of entertaining to be thrown into the mix for a while, a show here or there, but it isn’t timeless music like Johnny Cash or Ke$ha (kidding). It’s just noise, or as my friend Acacia put it–a remix.
