Love him or hate him, you can’t deny the fact that Skrillex has been making waves in the electronic music community for a while now. His signature sound, saturated with screetching synths and talking, wobbly basslines has transformed the way a lot of mainstream ‘dubstep’ sounds today. His five grammy nominations have propelled him to new heights of popularity for some, and caused the haters to be even more vocal. Personally, I can’t spend an hour on facebook without seeing at least a few posts about Skrillex, most of which are negative, but as the saying goes, any publicity is good publicity. Whatever your opinion, you have to recognize that he has opened many people’s eyes to a genre that was considered underground not that long ago. By no means do I give him credit for single-handedly bringing dubstep to the mainsteam audience, but for better or worse, the day has come where you can turn on your favorite music channel or radio station and hope to hear a dubstep track.
I leave it up to you, the listener, to make your own opinion on this remix. I am not a huge Skrillex fan, but I do appreciate some of the music he makes, and I definitely, genuinely like this particular track. Always remember though, before you waste precious time and energy hating on an artist, who works at trying to entertain you, that as the consumer, you alone hold the key to their success. Without listeners, and even more importantly, people buying the music, artists cannot survive. So whether positive or negative, in the end, you make the biggest impact on an artists career. That being said, enjoy, and please comment below to let me know how you feel about this argument.
Even a five year old would have no trouble whatsoever finding him online, so I leave it to you to support him anyway you choose…
