Oh sure, just I happen to respect your taste quite a bit.
Squirm is too far anyway, 'be bored' is probably more accurate.

I can totally see what you mean, but at the same time, isn't this just an indication of the ever fracturing nature of electronic music? That the whole Skrillex/brostep (I hate that phrase)/party stuff is shifting off from the more underground dub-y roots of the genre, to drift into I don't know, hard electro or something? Before you take me too seriously, you should probably note, I'm jetlagged to fuck, and so hungover that my mouth feels like someone swapped my tongue for moss. Mouldy, mouldy, moss.
Since posting that though my taste has continued to drift from where it was. I should say I was never a big skrillex/ridiculodrop fan. More sort of a middle of the road, bar9 501 and Nero lover, but I think my new favourite band (and holyshit I do mean band
) in dubstep is Submotion Orchestra
.Saw them live back in March (I think, apparently that's the only time they've been to Oxford) and I was blown away. I really rate them highly, and recommend everyone who gets the chance goes to see them.
