What are your thoughts on this? I think Redbull did an amazing job.

I can understand that it might not be something you are particulate interested in but at least it's something different. I mean, it's only 10 minutes long.

Actually it's 11:27! :O

I've watched it now though, but I didn't find it very interesting. It doesn't ho much inteo detail of how dubstep was really created at all, or the different genres, seems like there's a lot of people praising the Internet and speaking about new ways to produce and showcase music, and how it's evolved, and what it means to people... without saying anything really concrete. I'd have liked a rundown on facts instead of philosophy. :/ Just my humble opinion..

Post-Dubstep.

Well, Dubstep is, for many, quite Experimental, isn't it? Like Musique Concrete given a Pop sheen? usually, a Post-genre sees it develop away from what it is meant to be about: Post-Industrial embraces acoustics and tradition, Post-Disco and Post-Punk experimentation, Post-Minimalism used the tenants of Minimalism to produce epic Soundscapes.

Post-Grunge. Now that attempted to make the sound more palatable and less aggressive. It is my opinion that Post-Dubstep would bring in more acoustic, more traditional, less harsh methods. However, as Dubstep IS mainstream, so it would be less Experimental and yet more dissonant?

I dunno and I'm no musicologist, but to me a lot of the music in this is modern House music?

Great music is great music, of course, genres are only really to describe things and, more importantly, to create a community and subculture.

Egad!

There comes a point where ultra-specific labels are useless. You could always describe something as a blend of other small genres, as opposed to its own micro-specific title, since there are enough titles out there to account for every current sonic configuration. That way, all the vernacular used to pigeonhole modern music would be axed in favor of longer descriptions and reviews.

Plus, post-dubstep has a terrible ring to it. The word just sounds like a detached bastardization to label a whole group of artists.

I just don't understand why everyone feels the need to label things such as music with such specific labels. Who cares what its called? and why do people get so infuriated when someone misidentifies a genre or sound? If you like the music, listen to it. If you dont like it, dont listen to it. simple as that. why all the stress on these identifiers, why does everything have to be so differentiated? theres nothing wrong with blurring the lines of genre. some sounds have similarities to others, but are distinguished by this one little detail, that doesnt make them completely opposite of eachother. I just dont understand all the negative hype about things like EDM. I like all sorts of electronic music, i just label it all together as electronic music. i can see the differences between something like dubstep and techno but if someone misdiagnoses it it doesnt affect me. and i don't bash on everyone who hates EDM, i dont bash on everyone who likes other things more. People need to learn to just listen to what you like and dont give a shit about what anyone else likes. if they like the same thing as you, great. if they don't, great too, they have something else that makes them happy.

I mean come on

It makes sense. Modernism happened over the course of the 20th century (modernism with an upper-case M) which means everything post-Modernism refers to movements after or subsequent of that.

It's stupid though, it wasn't very forward thinking to call anything Modernism as a name, because obviously time carries on.

You are such a hypocrite. What did it explain? Labels shouldn't exist? Dubstep and techno sound different? Take your own advice and stop being so biased.

well, it would be inaccurate to call 'post-dubstep' just dubstep

it's a musical movement that evolved out of dubstep, sure, but it doesn't fit within the genre confines of dubstep

i prefer to call it future garage - since it's basically just a modern update on the uk garage sound, but still it's a distinct genre that is something other than dubstep

labels are not necessary, but i doubt you would like to open itunes or whatever media player you use and see only 1.mp3, 2.m4a etc instead of labeled tracks

we get it

you don't believe in labeling music

so listen to anonymous music files to prove how much you hate labeling

others, who like music more, will tag music by genre so our music is nicely sorted

see the photo below? it allows me to listen to nothing but techno, if i choose

it's very convenient

Serious question. You seem like you don't like many people here so why spend your time on this one website? The community is not going to change for you.

Is everything contained in 8-Bit/VGM from game soundtracks? Is there actually such music released separately (thinking about full albums, not individual tracks)?

Your still not paying attention at all to what he said, maybe visual stimulation will be more effective.

okay, you don't believe in subgenres

so tag all your electronic music as electronic and listen to masonna along with your detroit techno

i'm sure it will be very comfortable

subgenres are very important

Well theres lots of different styles in Britpop as opposed to post-britpop where half the bands sound like fucking Coldplay.

but fair enough anyway
