Ok i'd like to start a little debate here, well, not so much really. I'd actually like to vent my disgust at the music that Eptic and the likes are churning out at this point in time.
Now, i'm all for progression in music, but if making out of key remixes that destroy the original track is the new trend, then you can count me out. Exhibit A (Eptic - Pump up the off key bass
I'm going to bash a lot about this guy right now, just because he's rinsed the sound so much. Even Skrillex has changed his style up in the time it's taken for Eptic to make a billion other tracks, and sure, he was good when he started (Eptic - Fools), but the sound needs to be progressed for me to like it.
I could bet you a trillion $$$ that this guy doesn't make other genres or subgenres of dubstep/music because he CAN'T
. Even his good friend Habstrakt managed to pull out a huge "dark" track
(Habstrakt - Night Trains
Now, you can say what you like about Eptic's style and it's probably good for clubs and such, but i've also seen this guy DJ in Birmingham, and the floor was not packed even a 1/4.
All i'm saying is, if he's going to make new tracks, i'd at least want to see some variety, it's all the same. He must have a field day when he does mixes purely because no-one can tell where one track finishes and another begins.
Alot of people expect big things from his this upcoming year, but i'm maintaining that until I hear some variation in his style and some general brushing up, I won't follow or like his music. I'll just leave him to do what he's doing and producing relatively weak tracks and then getting them mastered.
So yeah, post your own thoughts, this isn't a place for just my own.
