Dubstep is the future... 2019-02-10 04:48:02


We all love dubstep. But I think it'll be the only genre soon. I really like dubstep, and I hope my words will come truth... What do you think?

We all know, we all know, that music will be diverse in the future, and not even you can wish it away.


The resurgence of Classic FM to play and feature top video game composers only says something about us hearkening back to the past to make the music of the future.

So... you mean there will be more than one genre?

I think that someone else might agree with you on that subject.

Oh definitely.


As long as there are folk communities, their music will always continue.


As long as there are video games, there'll be classical music.


As long as there are worshippers, there'll be hymns and nasheeds.


As long as there are early music enthusiasts gaining traction, and Renaissance fairs, there'll always be a resurgence of medieval and Renaissance music.


As long as there are countries and their military, there'll be anthems and marches.


Dubstep will never be the only genre, and there'll easily be something else in the future that takes its place in popularity that people will want to be "the only genre that exists." Not too long ago, people said that about big room.

If anything, I think it will be the opposite.


Dubstep as we know it today, like all genres, will evolve and take a different form as artists strive to create something new and diverge from creating 'tired' content. Especially in the realms of music under the umbrella of 'electronic', as technology advances, so will musical capabilities. Dubstep specifically only became a genre well within my lifetime (the late 1990s) and continues to change.


That said, there will always be people that enjoy following the basic rules of what makes a 'genre' its genre; sticking true to the essence of what people know it to be in the name of authenticity. As an artist that enjoys taking many different genres from many different cultures and mixing them in my music, I'm always excited and open to seeing these genres take new and interesting forms!

In a few decades, audio companies will replace current buzzwords analog warm fat vintage with wobble skleenex drop pryda and everyone will say It was better in my times, you know nothing Jon Snow and music took ACTUAL skills, not just rendering your thoughts and imagination into a soundfile. I would have to press play on my computer AND play angry birds at the same time. You kids are no legit performers.


TrueFact: Dubstep Wobblebass was invented by dnb amen brothers, who copied one direction's beatles after they met Dj Redo on the australian mountain. WooooooOOOOOOoooooooWowowow It's an omen-menmenmenmen!

Novelty from the past is the future.

I think this is one of the dumbest statements I've ever heard. Dubstep is nowhere near as popular as you think it is - it will never be the ONLY genre.

If anything, I think OP created it for talking points and did it in a rather puerile manner; this at least applies to me, but I feel as though the original post is written by a starry-eyed dubstep fan who doesn't know, or doesn't bother to know anything else. At least some of us would have behaved that way in our teens — blind adulation of the thing we know and love. Among us musicians and listeners there can only be one answer to the original post.


But, keep at it OP — you seem to enjoy musical talking points. Hopefully there'll be more, reflected, thought-out ones in future.

Wait, @Troisnyx! I know many more genres, but I'm just sayin' I think the dubstep (my fav) will be the only genre soon. But this is only my opinion.

To everyone: Don't be shy! Say what do you think! I'm really happy that you reply on my thread!

I accepted quite a while back that it is your opinion, yeah. ^_^ It's just that something like this sounds incredibly puerile to many musicians across genres and levels of experience, at least that's what I feel. Note, what *I* feel — others may not draw the same conclusion.


And I don't expect others will think that, either.

Unlikely. Dubstep has for the most part lost popularity. I could see a future bass and moombah takeover being more likely being that they're already massively popular as it is. However, as others in this forum have said already, it is extremely unlikely that music will ever condense into a single genre, being that people have and always will have diverse tastes in music. Also, drumstep > dubstep in my opinion.

Also, it's very presumptuous to say, "We all like dubstep." There are actually a great many people on the general forum and just on this website in general that don't like it.

Not really. I listen to a lot of it but only because there is so much of it that the chance that there will be songs that are good despite the shitty drop are decent.


I can't think of a dubstep song that wouldn't be better without the drop.

Dubstep imo was golden back in 2010-2011, when it was first going mainstream with artists like Flux Pavillion, Nero, Emalkay, Example, Benga, Bar9, KOAN Sound Chase & Status, absolutely smashing the sounds!


Similarly I thought Dubstep was the way forward. Period.


Then over time, I got bored of it and kind of lost interest in electronic music altogether.


Over the years, as I've grown, realised a lot of music is actually quite good. Especially stuff from the 60s - 80s. Never gave those dudes a chance, as I thought they were cheesy as heck, but my goodness is music from those eras so groovy!


I think other people have had similar experiences, seeing as how the Retrowave genre became so dominant, and people in general seem to be more accepting of different sounds nowadays, than what I think they were before. But maybe it's just me talking about my own preferences / changes in taste.


Glad you like the genre though dude, I've got some Dubstep stuff cooking...


Want a review lemme know! Collab, remix, tips, whatever, just get in touch.

Just to extend on this, there was a thread (can't remember who posted it) asking about the interpretation of music and what, I believe, was actually good vs. what was perceived to be good.


A lot of artist on this site who are new and old sometimes struggle with the fact that not making the most popular music will yield few to no results. It doesn't matter how good I make a song if people are not interested in that category. Additionally, there was a study I read that went into the topic of repetition, and stated that depending on how complex the song was, would take a longer repetition curve to be enjoyed (complex as in like Beethoven or Bach). Complex songs on newgrounds might score a zero from a user who isn't used to that music or are not willing to engage into a longer repetition curve.


However, what was learned by that study is that song with quick repetition curves tend to burn out quickly. Look at a lot of the "top 40" hits and you'll see a lot of songs that people don't really listen to anymore. And so, what should be realized is that for categories that rely solely on a drop, that effect can burn out quickly if you've experience it too much. This is why I, as an artist, am more interested in creating complex works because I've learned that when people get the style that there more likely to enjoy it over the long term versus someone who sticks by the rules and mass produces similar types of popular music liked by the crowds.


It just burns out.

I think it'll continue to developed and have elements integrated into future genres but I don't think there will ever only be one genre. Too many different types of people with different tastes.
