Tbh I do find the making of retro jungle and hardcore in the 2010s fundamentally wrong, retrograde, stagnant. Especially as doing so assumes being limited to a well worn pallette. An off the shelf kit rather than an expanding toybox.

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.

it's your fault that dubstep got so shit and went back to roots reggae tbh luke you should have bullied them into making their music more gabba. if I could turn back time I would hijack your account on dissensus. this is the direction, anti-human reggae

yeah but the problem with skrillex is he's middlebrow to me. he can't go all the way like dj scud or panacea.

yes, but as is evident now you are bigging up skrillex. however if you had been antagonistic to dubstep whilst fetishising its most unpleasant aspects you would have ascended to master status. now you just look like chal ravens or john twells from fact/pitchfork. because now they are rehabilitating jump up and hardstyle and soon it will be american dubstep, if not already. you are more in league with the conceptronica devils.

As you know this is where we differ. Going all the way is easy. The tricky part is maintaining a useful tension. The tricky part is knowing exactly where the threshold is and NOT crossing it. walking the line.
