    Default Playing a Skrillex Afterparty

    This Wednesday I am spinning at a Skrillex Afterparty, the party is taking place about a block from where the skrillex show is so I think there will be a lot of overflow. My question is am I going to want to stick to wobble dubstep? I know if it was me I would probably be sick of hearing it after leaving a Skrillex show, but I'm not sure how people feel. I was planning on just spinning some Dubstep mixed with some hard electro house.

    Any tips on how to approach this gig?

    You'd probably want to stay on the heavy side of things, cos people aren't going to want to come straight out of that and go into deep house or minimal, but I'm sure they wouldn't be adverse to electro house or something like that. No need to stick strictly to dubstep if you don't want to.

    i would go to more electro house honestly. a whole show of straight dub can be too much sometimes. Play some wolfgang gartner etc .

    Skrillex doesn't only make dubstep.

    exactly, skrillex make a lot of electro. If I just came out of a place listening to dub all night I'd like it to change up. Especially because its skrillex too. So many people know him without actually knowing anything about dubstep or the music, so blaring all night at an after place may be overload. You could play electrohouse and people would almost think its dub. I would prefer a mix of both, throw in a few dub tracks and more electro tracks imo.

    Just because its a dub thing doesn't mean he has to follow suit either.

    Avoid playing any Skrillex would be my only suggestion.

    If you went to see Skrillex expecting dub you'd be sorely disappointed I fear

    Drum n bass + dub = awesome.
    maybe something on the more experimental side??
    Proxy? lol

    point is, if you want to play some dubstep for safety, then go ahead.... but don't just play that.

    I've heard hes been playing a lot of his electro tracks on tour. Plus he was traveling with Zedd and porter robinson for a while, so if they are playing maybe more dub then electro. Its just so many people associate dub with him and yet have no clue its either they are in ignorant bliss.
