Nice to see someone here repping the old dubstep producers. That sound almost feels forgotten nowadays.

I was totally consumed by that whole scene a couple years back. So many classic tunes and vibes.

I believe everyone needs to go to a real dubstep / UK bass venue with a proper rig to understand that sound. I've brought friends who have no interest in club music to those kinds of places and they've always liked it.

The problem is it's so incredibly rare to find clubs/venues with decent soundsystems, dubstep is an obvious one for those exceptions, but basically any genre of music will be a new experience with good sound.

 Yeah! I think bass is addictive — volume is addictive. I don’t mean in a crappy "turn it up to 11!" sort of way, but it literally makes me feel good, spiritually. Having your internal organs rearranged by bass can be a really therapeutic thing. It’s an incredible thing, soundsystem culture.

 

Or:

Quote:
 As far as I’m concerned, the physicality of sound is crucial; it takes you beyond intellectual discourse, to very primal, psychological confrontations. I like what it can do to you: it can be seductive, it can be sexy, it can be aggressive, it can fuck you up, it can flatten you, it can wake you up. Intense musical experiences have changed how I live my life, full stop. To some people this may sound a bit over-the-top. My passion is music, and that is reflected in how I approach the live arena. Now, increasingly, when record sales are shrinking, it’s important to leave a statement, to walk away having done something memorable. Volume in itself isn’t memorable; anyone can turn the volume up to 12 and crush someone with it. That’s not impressive. It’s the constructions within the music that are important.

 

You look at dudes like Skrillex, and it's just volume and noise for the sake of volume and noise, with zero substance or thought behind it. Case in point:

 

 

And it's just noisy ADHD bullshit, and I say that being someone who thoroughly enjoys breakcore and most stuff that falls under the IDM label.

 

Problem is, most people are happy listening to shit through shit soundsystems, and that's never going to change, there's no incentive for club owners to invest in good systems when their audience just wants to get high and wear neon colours.

 

Either way, I'm just going to sit at home and blast this out.

Completely agree.

I don't want to be an elitist but I have a hard time going out to regular clubs with mediocre DJs, mediocre music and bad sound systems. I just don't enjoy it. I think that comes with being active in a music scene like this (I've DJed and produced a fair bit before).

 

My ideal club would be a small and very crowded room, pitch black, not being able to see further than a couple of foot ahead, smoke filled and monstrously big soundsystem. No fancy stuff.

 

I don't have any shortage of good clubs nearby though so I can't complain. Know some guys who play UK Bass music and there's also a fair amount of good Techno and House nights in my city.

You'd probably like Corsica Studios in London, tiny place, BIG sound, so much so that the bathrooms upstairs vibrate.

do u think someone's taste in clothing is directly proportional to his taste of music?

Only particularly shallow people who are trying to fit into a certain clique.

Not directly proportional but a lot of times there's a clear link, especially if a person is very dedicated to the music and the particular scene in question.

 

Hardcore metal heads tend to have long hair, black jeans and band shirts.

Hip-hop fans wear sneakers and baggier clothes.

People into folk music maybe dress a bit more bohemian.

 

This is hardly surprising and it's very natural. I don't think you have to be shallow at all to strongly identify yourself with a group. I've always been drawn to sub-cultures and I def see a link between my interests and how they connect to each other. Then of course there's usually something that seems "odd" or unexpected in a person.

No, what I mean is, if someone dressed well, say, sf-approved, would their taste of music be good also? Or is it possible that someone who's well dressed listens to shit like avicii and one direction?
