Man, mainstream fashion is so “anything goes” these days that I honestly don’t find anything worn being entirely tacky at all.

Almost all the sentences you’ve managed to type out are wrong. You have one sentence right though:

“Art requires some skill or craftsmanship to show the world in a new way and to make you think.”

Consider taking a class in art history and appreciation before degrading the entire fluxus movement in what you probably gave less than 5 minutes of your life to attempt to rationalize. And then maybe understand why it was a fundamentally incremental part of art.

Can we get Mixtape Of The Week nods like we do for Album Of The Week?

I feel like that would make sense.

I’m still mad that you guys are still trying to make trap-rave a thing. But I guess it’s better than “trap-step”

*Hueboy (Demo), that is.

Tielsie – Hueboy is also a great track. I was floored by it the first time I heard it.

“People are talking about the dubstep drops on this song like they’re pure blasphemy, but when was the last time a drop made you feel like you were floating?”

This is the line that I’m mad. Yeah, you can lazily put {EDM, Dubstep, Trap, Electro, SoundcloudProducers, YourBuzzword, etc.} all in one box and talk down to it like you could give a flying fuck about the differences, but isn’t that what they do with “indie music”? Don’t we get mad when the nuances get overlooked and generalized, & artists get grouped into a genre they aren’t “really” in? (ie. if I said that The Lumineers were a great indie band)

This is clearly not a dubstep drop, nor is it one of the most outstanding drops and that’s kind of my gripe. I’ve heard a ton of different approaches to drops, Mr. Carmack, for example, that have made me feel like floating, but this is just a basic foray into stadium-sized trap. The synth lead sounds like a minor tweak to a stock sound, and is mixed to make it sound stale, especially noticeable when there’s too many lead notes stuffed into one bar, while the kick patterns are too repetitive and formulaic. The lack of variation doesn’t propel the song and it suffers rhythmically.

And to be honest, I don’t understand my downvotes, but now I know why stereogummers get obsessed with them without a written response :/

Man, I’m really angry at this. Seriously, guys…

First off, I’m a fan of Grimes, but there are no “dubstep drops” on ‘Go’. And to misidentify that as a music blog while claiming it as the number one song of the week (over FKA Twigs…really tho? I disagree.) says more about your lack of knowledge/respect of that part of the electronic music scene than the underhanded slight you were going for. There’s a lot of over-crediting on what Grimes chooses to appropriate in her art and I think you guys just drank the kool-aid on this one.
