    You've got me listening to this now u cunt

    I watched a bit of his live show. Hard to believe anyone was on drugs, except they probably all were. Weird.

    Is this 4chan music?

    It's like meme music

    The depth of a phone screen. Pure surface stimulus.

    The first stuff I heard like that was probably Spor, Noisia etc, all that dnb that sounds like a metal tiger.

X Factor meets Harmony Korine.

    It's actually all twinkly and sweet, as you say like sugar drinks.

    You'd never admit to liking Coki ofc but Coki is basically this music but genuinely a bit unhinged and offensive. Also he did it first.
    of course, the pop arena is where luke thinks he's in touch with the masses. except dubstep was dead in london when skrillex got big, even for your casual pop music fan, noone was having any of it. it would be like banging on about how it was great that reprezent won the mercury prize.

    yeah but hollywood is no longer gangsta. it's about nerd existentialism now. inception and shit like that. films are no longer lumpen.

    I would put him on the timbaland level of importance. The world-spirit astride it's horse, embodied in human form.

    So I suppose I'm as modernist as that.
    modernism can be reactionary though. those guys fetishised machines instead of understanding economics. they liked capitalism in Italy but not in wallstreet which they found boring.

    I knew this thread would give third a massive hissy fit but I had to be brave and do it anyway. The truth must be heard.

    The funny thing is, as Barty pointed out, Skrillex embodies all the values third cherishes. Obnoxious beyond the pleasure principle noise the rehabilitation of the zfi, the contempt for subtlety, a truly post human future in which the bounded private self and it's tawdry affects is utterly obliterated. No more inside no more out. All surface.

    He (Skrillex) looks like George McFly from Back to the Future.
