I like that someone's finally made the connection that what's going on in the American Dubstep scene is kind of a travesty on where it's started. I feel like there's a really strong lack of respect for where it came from. Now it's just pop music. Not to mention, most of the UK Dubstep DJ's have already moved on from the sound. They're the ones creatively pushing the boundaries. That's why the sound has grown, shifted, and modified. Instead of spiraling out of control into some nonsensical sound that's going to (unfortunately) become the next hot thing for the big record labels.
"Certain producers – who I can't even be bothered naming – have definitely hit upon a sort of fratboy market where there's this machoism being reflected in the sounds and the way the music makes you feel. And to me, that is a million miles away from where dubstep started."
– James Blake quote from The Boston Phoenix
