The reason it's annoying when people ask about "Making Dubstep" is because they only have an interest in that one specific genre.
I don't understand how it's annoying. Naive perhaps, possibly even narrow minded, but annoying? Annoying implies that you can't ignore something and move on. I for instance, find this whole argument annoying, because these threads are more often than not full of bullies who take it upon themselves to shove newbies around in the name of "good taste".
I mean, I understand that they might like it but to ask a musician what he or she can do to be a "Dubstep Artist" is just dumb.
What am I supposed to ask then if I want to learn how to produce dubstep?
The fact of the matter is, Musicians produce music, whether it be Dubstep, trance, classical etc.
It's still a person creating music, Not someone working on just one genre and that's it.
I don't understand the relevance of this statement. Benga, Skream, Datsik, Excision, Rusko etc...these are all musicians that more or less produce dubstep exclusively. I would classify them as dubstep artists. The same can be said for musicians who produce other genres almost exclusively. Richie Hawtin, Gabber Front Berlin, Far Too Loud, Kavinsky, Evol Intent etc.
The question should be more "What can I do to become a Musician" or "What should I do to learn?"
Opinions are fun.
Just my opinion, but after being told a hundered times by people saying that they're going to become a "Dubstep Artist" I get a bit disappointed and eventually frustrated with them.
This seems like pretty outrageous hyperbole to me. However, that is an assumption on my behalf, and there's nothing wrong with you being disappointed and frustrated. Seems like a waste of energy to me though.
I'd much rather someone tell me that they're inspired to make music, not just sound like the rest of the wannabe musicians who say the same thing because its "in" at the moment...
That's nice, but people are trying to produce dubstep, not satisfy you.
