Quote :
"The awards, handed out in the Grammy pre-telecast ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, include Best Remixed Recording (Non-Classical) for the song “Cinema (Skrillex Remix)”; Best Dance/Electronic Album for Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites; and Best Dance Recording for the title track.

“This is really crazy for me, man,” said Skrillex, accepting the first award. “I made this song in my bedroom when I was living illegally in a warehouse in downtown L.A.”

After whipping out an iPhone to read a long list of thank-yous, he trotted back into the audience but returned soon after to accept two more awards."

dubstep always sounds like a 56k modem raping the megaman 2 music. and a keygen is filming it all.

I mean, the Grammys don't have much credibility to begin with, but I find it disturbing that dubstep is now mainstream. A year ago, I thought dubstep would be limited to dirty basement parties where I'm 10+ drinks in and therefore able to tolerate it.

from what I understand (and I don't listen to dubstep, so don't take my word on it) skrillex is like pop crappy dubstep, and doesn't really represent the totality of the genre

let me just clarify that dubstep is very fun in a live setting, and he should have definitely won the three awards he got (remix, dance and electronic) but I think its utter bullshit for him to be nominated for album of the year

i don't give a what about the grammies though

[Edited on February 12, 2012 at 10:08 PM. Reason : i do think skrillex is overhyped though (and thus also overhated)]

Ok most pop crap that wins thes awards are over produced junk. And atleast dubstep, the producer IS the artist so it can't be over produced , and those samples are so mixed up if you could identify more that 5% I'd be fucking impressed.

i'm 32 and love dubstep/electronic/edm whatever the hell you call it. the genre really doesn't matter and skrillex is awesome even if it's not true dubstep, just classify him as an electronic music artist and be done with it... nobody cares if you think he's not good

i mean what the heck people, have you not been to Vegas??? pretty much the best clubs feature EDM and yes some of that includes stuff like dubstep. it's not all crap.

you can easily replace Skrillex with any other big name like David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Deadmau5, Avicii, Nero, Calvin Harris... doesn't matter, they're all big names and EDM is a huge genre and only getting bigger. ya'll sound like people complaining about Elvis and rock-n-roll era. face it, you're old.
