Where did all the dubstep in vidya go to?
I'm starting to miss it
It is still present it many modern game's OST. Since the uprise of dubstep 4 or 5 years ago, many movies know feature dirty wubs along side the rest of your typical orchestral instruments.
Which is great, in my opinion. Nothing sounds better than violins playing alongside some wubbies.
> /v/ will get that joke
I get it though anon heres a reply
Was about to post this. Good level overall.
>tfw dubstep is irrelevant in video games
>you will never be able to ride on the dubstep train
I decide to make a "tribute" to 7th gen games by using dubstep, every weapon has iron sights, a neo 80's motif, and souls like gameplay.
Say what you want about the game, but cutting demons in half to Noisia felt proper as fuck. Note that this is drum n bass and not dubstep, but /v/ doesnt know the difference.
Synthesizers and effect chains nowadays can produce textures and soundscapes that are more complex and expressive than any physical instrument.
Funny how the public shits on modern electronica like its a joke, but when their favorite bands rip off big bloody chunks of sound design elements from electronica pioneers and tuck it into a traditional arrangement, people eat it up and call it revolutionary.
lol you think your the only one that had fun in school
escape the fate
of mice and men
at the drive in
I'm black and I find this shit better than any dubstep song I've ever fucking heard
>Always wanted to get into emo music
>Didn't know where to start or if it would be actually good
Should I go for Panic at the Disco
>good taste on /v/
Well fuck my asshole.
Its a fuckin shame that 95% of people will be exposed to aggressive electronic music in the form of shitty youtube remixes of popular songs. That and immature/tasteless wibbitywop with predictable rhythms and abrasive sounds.
Done by experts, electronic music goes harder than metal.
>I'm starting to miss it
Holy fuck just leave.
>tfw I used to really like this song in grade 7
>and the whole "weird carnival" aesthetic
>wanted to die my hair black
>let a girl put eye liner on me once
Thank god I have Chad friends who called me a pussy for being like that and straightening me out
Still a damned good mix.
If you havent checked it out, Noisia has been doing a 2hr podcast every friday where they play new and old tracks and discuss them a little bit. Theyre like 19 episodes deep and every last one is fucking awesome. You can listen to all of em on their soundcloud, think Ive done all of them at least three times now.
Cool to hear the guys warm up and start cracking more jokes as they go, too, theyre bro-y as fuck.
>mfw remembering that phase during freshman - junior years of highschool
Also chillstep and whatever genres are included in that category are fucking great t b h
The first link is a BSE remix, guy.
UKF happened to have an acceptable quality upload considering 4chan doesnt support 320kbps or flac, so I linked to it. Wow.
Crazy fucking stuff, I know, but please let me know if anything else rumples your jumpsuit, chief.
The only one that I liked, funny and this came out out this year
>listening to durbshtep
>not going for the next step in music evolution
Step up the game senpai
aint sure what my opinion is worth but i've listened to it for a few years and some of my favorites are Senses fail and Funeral for a friend
>tfw someone introduced me to this
Too fuckin groovy mane
It doesn't, fag.
Let me tell you a tale of the most cringiest fan of their shit I've ever known.
>went to an art highschool
>mostly just kids who didn't wanna do work
>I wanna do music
>Girl I know, took my friend's V-Card
>SJWs and Tumblr are starting to become popular
>Huge Panic at the disco fan
>huge Dr.Who Fan
>whatever Grell from that anime is from, she likes that shit too
>Fucks my friend
>becomes a lesbian right after
>Still likes Panic at the Disco because muh cute boys mom omg
>She blocks me on facebook after I graduate when I tell her that goth lolita fashion is gauche and if you do this in america you have no identity
>engages herself to fellow fat faux lesbian
>When I was friends with her we were talking on some chat client and she wanted me to be her fuck buddy
>told her my friend would rather
>dodged many bullets that day.
Well, alright. Here's what I know about this whole fandom shit and the types of people that follow these kinds of things. I'm doing this in greentext form again because I know how hard it is for some anons to read anything else.
>I'm an awkward teenager, but I got a close group of friends, most of which are actually females, but they were essentially brown paper bags, and the one I fucked to me.
>got a couple dude friends, one of which is named Zach
>Fandoms and tumblr become a thing on the internet around my sophomore year like full force shit, not like it was before where people were just interested in things (I'm 20 now)
>i'm no stranger, so I gave most of them a try for my friends, but to no avail. Dr.Who is the type of show people that aren't british and wish to god they were watch, Homestuck is pretentious pretending to be pretentious dribble for sexually confused teens and I wasn't about to give any kind of notice to My Little Pony because it was fucking My Little Pony
>This whole time zach has wanted to fuck pretty much every girl in our 'group' because he was still a virgin, Including the one in our group that was a great artist but her body and ass shape was something along the lines of "Yam" and "Grandma", a Yam-ma if you will. I don't get why but he wanted to destroy this girl.
>Zach starts to get into dr.who when they're all into Dr.Who, spends a shitload of his dads money to get as much meaningless merch as he can get
>Zach Gets into MLP when they all decide to get into MLP, spends a shitload of his dads money to get as much meaningless merch as he can get
>Zach Gets into homestuck when they all decide to like homestuck, spends a shitload of his dads money to get as much meaningless merch as he can get
on a scale of 1 to 10 how gay am i?
>the girls start to see him more as a fellow girl, and he believes that this is his in, even spending the night with all of them (including my girlfriend at the time) because he told her parents that he was gay.
>this backfires horribly when now they for sure won't bang him when they're sure he zucks the dicks
>Zach is straight as an arrow but goes on with this "i'm trans" shit because hey, I follow back, Reblog!
>drops almost $80 on a corset he'll never wear and doesn't fit him
>I get zach laid (read the other story if you wanna know)
>We Graduate or leave highschool like we all do
>no longer friends with zach for obvious reasons
>now he has no real things to be interested, and the only time he had sex was out of pity and thanks to me (I wish I could find the logs of that chat you guys would love it)
>Was sad cause he was my best friend since kindergarten and now he just wants to be a fuckin' retard
>not sad anymore because he brought me down
>feel much better telling you guys this story after I thought it out.
Y'see my conclusion is that there are people who are into this shit because it is specifically for them, target audience and all that. And there are those who buy merch and are superfans but only do so because its a trend.
yes there is probably grey areas but I feel like Zach is the perfect representation of the way we enjoy things nowadays.
>all of the songs thumbnails are some stock anime image
>also panty and stocking but that's fine.
You're not gay you just need to refine your tastes, man.
Just like >>315588292 said.
Everyone realized how boring brostep really is and moved onto something else.
Kinda like Chiptune if any of you guys remember the chiptune revival that went on in Portland, But chiptune is relevant and has a history and brostep is just babby's first: an introduction to producing music with FL Studio!
I listen to my own music because most modern music in games (and radio) is ass
>I listen to my own music because most modern music in games (and radio) is ass
but seriously don't think like this, Music is A) Subjective and B) there's more music being made TODAY than you'll ever be able to hear in a lifetime so how about instead of being a fuckin' amish person about it do some research and refine your tastes.
Also for someone who hates modern music your MP3 player is full of modern music.
It basically just refers to the note choice.
(Treat each individual group of three notes as a triplet)
That, to me, sounds angular. Others' definitions are probably different, but to me, angular describes sound, and it generally goes along with intervellic (sp?) relationships that don't go together very often, but angularity shouldn't be confused with dissonence (sp?).
If anybody has a formal definintion, I'd be interested to hear what it is.
>finally find a genre of ryhmic noises I like
>It dies as a fad within three years
After years of answering questions with things like "I don't listen to music" I was so close to finding something that clicked with me and that I could really say I enjoyed. Then it got treated like a meme and fell into an abyss. It probably won't come back, but I'll cherish it forever.
Now you're just being a xenophobe. What's your preferred genre, I'll post something you're going to love that was made in the last ~5-10 years. Geography has nothing to do with the quality.
They had dubstep in a trailer for the Sonic Boom game. A kids' game. When kids' games started using dubstep it officially became not cool anymore.
Seriously though, the fact that people tried to treat dubstep like it was a new genre was just stupid. It was just a new sound type being used in electronica / techno, and some bad musicians overused it in what people started calling "dubstep songs."
>It still holds up, you fag
>Implying it was good in the first place
I'm so glad I graduated high school before the internet really took off in this way.
Myspace was just starting to die, giving way to facebook in 2004.
I had fun as a proto-troll on deviant art back then though.
>not going for the next step in music evolution
>Posts meme album from dead micro-genre
Even that album by Hong Kong Express could save the genre, and nobodys going to remember it in a few years time.
The best and most significant electronic artists today, apart from Skrillex, are not American.
Excision, Datsik, and Downlink are all Canadian. Pendulum/Knife Party was/is Australian. Aphex Twin is English. Daft Punk is French. Justice is French.
Xilent is Polish (but now lives in the UK, it seems), Noisia is Dutch, Netsky is Belgian, Black Sun Empire is Dutch, Document One is from the UK, Shockone and Phetsta are both from New Zealand...
My point is, only the REALLY GENERIC electronic music you hear on the radio in America is American. If you go any deeper, you'll find different stuff. Hell, Figure is American and he's pretty interesting.
>Didn't list the Crystal Method as American
>Implying the Crystal Method is generic
Everything you say about electronic music is now null and void. Go home, never come back.
WLFGRL is definitely the superior album but I'd like to see more out of dred collective before I settle on this
Grimes has never looked hairier and more like a spanish man even though she's made out of animals and colors. I used to dig her when visions came out but that shit she did with blood diamonds held my interest just long enough to realize that I liked the instrumental more than her dumb fucking face.
"oh blood diamonds carry me"
"How about I hold a sword like I do in all the other vids"
I don't know. Brillz is a significant trap artist.
The best trap song I know of is Rat Trap by Feed Me. Goin In (Skrillex Goin' Down Mix) by Birdy Nam Nam is a decent one, too.
Big Room House is mostly awful, just look into electro house.
Traps going to wear itself out just like dubstep did pretty soon. There's so much generic garbage being pumped into the genre by the metric ton it's almost a 1:1 repeat of what happened a few years ago.
all the best video game music of the last few years has been electronic
a truly good orchestral soundtrack hasn't been done since halo ODST/reach
He has done actual dubstep. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites and Equinox are undeniably dubstep. They're 140 bpm, have broken beats, and follow the common structure of dubstep songs.
Let's not get into this.
It's still trashy trashy dubstep, what little of it he has done. Saying he's a dubstep artist is insulting to actual dubstep artists.
Not that any of this shit matters, since dubstep died in 2012...
Do you people enjoy being so elitist? I'm genuinely asking cause I don't see where you can derive pleasure from saying popular things are shit and just hating stuff.
If you don't like an artist or certain songs, cool, don't listen to it? Listen to what you enjoy and be happy.
>Listen to what you enjoy and be happy.
The new has overtaken the old.
What was once "dubstep" is no longer the present definition of dubstep, but they have similar characteristics: 140 bpm, broken drum beats, and heavy bass.
The new form of it was popularized by Skrillex but goes as far back as 2008, if I remember correctly.
There is no point to get angry over a name of a genre.
Even anime has dubstep. How can we bring our dubstep overlords back /v/? Platinum game with a rave asthetic and dubstep soundtrack when?
Parasyte game by platinum when?
>The new has overtaken the old.
You know that 'old' (note: actual) dubstep still gets made, right? It didn't suddenly go defunct when brostep started getting made. They have similar characteristics, but they are still very different.
>There is no point to get angry over a name of a genre.
Why did you actually say this?
Because you were calling modern dubstep by a pejorative name.
I didn't say it "died," by the way. I said it was overtaken by modern dubstep, which it was.
The reason why it was overtaken is because music like it (I'd even day it's more comparable to ambient) can't really be danced to and thus has a much smaller market.
The only electronic act who makes music that can't easily be moved to that I can think of that's also popular is Aphex Twin.
>It's a very faithful adaptation save for the artstyle
Aside from the anime original characters that added absolutely nothing. And the sound direction was laughably bad.
>dramatic scene where Shin sees his parasite-mom
>background music completely overpowers the dialogue
Well i guess it depends on your poin of view. I don't mind adaptations adding stuff if it doesn't screw up the original plot. And in this case it didn't so no harm done. As for the sound thing i have to agree. It happened almost exclusively with Next to you so i guess they were very pround of that track. Overall it's still a pretty good adaptation.
