Any Dubstep Recommendations?

People like me? I just stated simple facts, if you can't handle them then well i don't really care
facts such as your taste is dubstep is better than everybody else's? can you see how this relates to aicy's post? :D

Would be the same if someone asked Techno recommendations and people sum up hardcore artists for example...
just because pink doesn't sound like the beatles, that doesn't mean that it's not pop. same goes for dubstep, just coz it doesn't sound like old coki or skream or whatever, doesn't mean it's not dubstep. fi you don't think it sounds as good as old-school dubstep then that's fine, and plenty of people would agree with you, but it doesn't mean that other people have the wrong opinion!


anyways, that's my opinion :p

well i might have been a bit harsh in my post so therefore i apologize. But most of the time if people ask what i listen to and i say everything but most of the time Dubstep they immediately think about Skrillex and all that other ish. Even though what they make is a mutation of Dubstep and not what it used to be about. Dubstep used to be about "implosion" and not about making the hardest drops or include the most transformer sounds in one tune lol. So to conclude, you got dubstep and you got brostep.

Monstercat is nothing like that, like, at all. First of all only about 20% of what they upload is dubstep, and then the vast majority of that is liquid dubstep. I hate most dirty dubstep tbh. :p

I don't even care what you call the music pegboard nerds/tristam/krewella and the likes make. Whatever it is, I love it. I even enjoy some of skrillex's stuff, not all of it hough :D

Well as you probably guessed, i don't share their taste in music so i didn't feel the need to become affiliated with them. I kinda think they're more in it for the money than actually for the music. I did everything for free on my channel. But i do agree that if i could have made a living out of my channel i would have done that, but not at the expense of the quality of music i uploaded. Hope this answers your question :)

Ofcourse they do it for the money, they have 6 people working on that channel full-time, and most of the featured artists live off of the money they make from their music. It's not a blatant monyegrab though, it's simply unfair to suggest it is. They release an album almost every month with 20 tracks for only 10 bucks. That's a steal! 012 even had 30 tracks for the same price. Compared to their competition they're probably the cheapest out there. They are not only a channel on youtube, they're a label. They give underground artists a chance to get out there and even make music their actual profession. :D

The fact that they're a label sets them apart from channels like yours and for example vital (check them out if you've not heard of them)
You and vital promote artists, you don't give them any money. Monstercat is their label, not just a channel that promotes them.


Not trying to sound aggresive btw, you can do whatever you want :p

I don't think most of the artists live off the money they make from their music, unless you're name is Skrillex... Most of the artists get their money through bookings, trust me as an artist myself i know what i'm talking about.

I know it's your opinion vs mine but i just don't think Monstercat does a great job about quality control on their channel as well as on their releases. If i remix lady gaga i'm sure i'll get a spot on the channel lol
Btw i find it hard to believe they have 6 people working full-time on the channel when for example UKF is ran by one guy full-time.

I never see any deep dubstep on their channel, why would that be?

Doubt that cos a gaga remix wouldn't be monetizable without licensing fees I think :p Not sure what you mean with quality btw, it's fine if you don't like the stuff they put out but it's definitely not crappy quality, not anymore at least (the production value of the stuff they put out has increased massively since their first upload)

UKF is a channel, Monstercat is a channel AND a label. That is probably the difference.

Not even sure what it is exactly (fudging subgenres :p) but my guess is that there isn't any deep dubstep submitted to them that's actually good enough to make it on the channel, or there may not be enough demand for it.
Anyone else listening to CatStep? :)
what in the world is catstep... lol

So what's this then? https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/ukf-bass-culture-2/id553727951 They have released quite a few compilations..

So yah like you're saying, Deep Dubstep may not have the same demand as Skrillex copy cats etc. That proves they only care about the money which was the complete opposite of what my channel's purpose was.
for reference, monstercat uploads:

I mean c'mon, people have no inspiration anymore and just copy those artists who make the most money and monstercats helps a lot in that process. Btw, just my opinion again

But this will all go away soon since most of these listeners and producers will jump on the next bandwagon like Trap music for example.

That's just an album with some of the songs put on UKF. I know for a fact UKF is or has never been the label of knife party and I am convinced they're not the only ones. Monstercat is the actual record label of the stuff they release (as in they are in the label field on beatport for example)

Apart from that noisestorm track I like them all, and I don't think they're copycats of anything. Just listen to 2:44 from that pegboard nerds link, dat melody! <33
Especially rouge and also pegboard nerds have a very distinct style, I could probably recognise a new song from both of them. And I really don't think they're similar to stuff from videos like this:

Ugh, trap, I hate it :p

Never said those artists on that compilation were signed exclusively to UKF tho. But a recordlabel releases EP's, LP's and compilations. And that's what UKF does, well the compilations. I don't like UKF tho, but besides the channel, the podcasts, the compilations, the mixes, the 3 other channels and one of the most important things, the concerts/nights they organize over the world i think it's much more than just a channel lol.

Well there must be something wrong with my ears then, because as with tracks from Skrillex & Knife Party the only thing i'm hearing are growls and high pitched noises over and over again lol
