Who loves ya, baby?
The moment you saw, read or heard something and just knew it was over.
nah. for me it's markomen vs j:kenzo braindrop february 2008. i thought it would get madder and madder from there. it did but not in the direction i wanted it to. that was the peak of wobble. looking back it was over from then onwards (as a scene, not as individual tracks or dj sets) - I blame middle class purists like blackdown who couldn't tolerate sharons n tracy's defiling their sacred warwick university template and hence we had to get nu metal wankers like korn of all people upholding that legacy - that's when it was touch and go for me and when i quickly hurried off (horrified) to jungle, techno and experimental electronics/free jazz, not faffing about with 130 bpm housified malarky.Caspa and Rusko's FabricLive seems like the moment for dubstep, although maybe that's only with the benefit of hindsight.
yeah looking back it actually counter-intuitively felt like the revival of 93 horrorcore. but then you had loefah saying oh we don't like most of that stuff, we only want reinforced, and it's like ok man it's exactly this revisionist attitude that constantly means we can't organically develop.Corpsey's talked about Spongebob being something of a watershed moment in the past.
vladislav delay for me.I think it was hearing Hazyville that pulled me out of dubstep entirely.
