In an interview with The Guardian, Dutch producer Martyn - who was a big part of the original dubstep movement in London - has shared his thougths on the genre's current incarnation in the U.S., comparing the now harsh sounds of brostep to the nu-metal scene of the late 90s/early 00s a la Limp Bizkit and Korn.
"It [American dubstep] has very little to do with me," he said. "Dubstep in the U.S. has taken the place of nu metal. An electronic music rave in America now is like a Limp Bizkit concert 10 years ago. If you listen to a Skrillex set, it’s basically just an orgasmic reaction every three minutes. It has little to do with what dubstep was really all about, which was sort of a meditation on bass. Now it’s like a caricature of that in the US."
I wonder if he's heard Justin Bieber's take on dubstep yet?
