Never used to be a fan of dubstep - never really liked the production or the synths/samples they used but I've recently been going through all the old DMZ tunes, Loefah, Mala, Coki etc and it's like I'm hearing something I never noticed before. I think when you listen to it, it's more about feeling the vibes the tune radiates rather than listening to each individual element of the track. You have to take it all as a whole. Sounds quite 'airy fairy'/pretentious but do you know what I mean?
I mean just recently I've seen a lot of artists saying "140's dead" which is good, whenever something is branded as dead it basically translates to the bandwagon jumpers jumping on the next one.
It's funny, right before those articles started popping up I started producing anything but 140 bass music...dropped bass music entirely. Still love listening to it. Just don't find it interesting in the studio any more.
