gek-opel said:Im not sure about this tho. Its pretty un-coffee-table ready at present isn't it? Or am I just one Various Productions album away from having my first dubstep dinner party?
I don't reckon Dubstep is gonna go the way of The "Bristol Sound" or whatever.
It's too cold and inorganic sounding, you can tell it's computer music (didn't Burial make his album on a PC?) Whereas 90's dinner-trip-hop used sampling, sequencing or whatever, it had the advantage of sounding "real". You could stick some horns over the slowed down breaks and it would sound like jazz, an acoustic guitar and you've got folk.
Dubstep is too unsettling (in a good way of course) for that.
