Skrillex is on all the pop stations now.

you’d be hard pressed to find James Blake getting any coverage outside the Pitchfork circle.

and failed to mention that Skrillex doesn’t even do half the shit that he produces.

funny you should mention that…Skrillex has been criticized as not even producing his own “bass” wobbles. (since they’re barely even in bass register)

i was reading on /mu/ awhile back that Skrillex sort of just sat back and let all his buddies on Mau5trap do all his bass wobbles for him when he was still making Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites.

the evidence of this is that when he was making Bangarang, which was his first release OFF of Mau5trap, a lot of the “bass wobbles” just sort of disappeared from his music, and were replaced by a lot less “growly” sounding “bass,” some people might consider that his step “away” (via different effects) from what he was doing prior to, but i think that it sort of shows evidence that now that he’s on his own, he has no idea what the hell he’s doing.

parallax was too good to be put in at 35. i’m not saying it should be top 10, but i’m saying that that album was too good to be at 35.

their last album was trying so hard to sound like The Queen Is Dead, it almost makes me hurt inside.
