    Default Porter Robinson is a Troll!

    “Personally, I prefer brostep to what they call ‘true dubstep’. In my opinion, true dubstep is thoroughly uninteresting, c-grade production,” Robinson told us. “I mean, of course there are exceptions – Skream and Benga are extremely talented – but I think there’s an enormous amount of pretence in the dubstep community. Because something is deliberate and uninteresting, it makes it superior to the more accessible stuff. I don’t buy that at all.”

    Funny thing is, Porter doesn't even make Dubstep.

    He has a few dub tracks.

    I like his productions.....pretty badass for his age.

    I like some of his stuff too, but I don't like him dissing the early pioneers of Dubstep. He has no clue.

    He has somewhat of a point. There are tremendous amounts of crappy dubstep being released on a daily basis. Sometimes it takes listening to 75+ tracks on beatport to find one that I like to include in a set.

    Wowwww!!!

    To me most of his "dubstep" tracks sound Electro. I'm a huge fan of many of his electro tracks and really hope he continues to make more electro tracks.

    He did say it was his opinion and not really emphasizing that it means anything. I really wanna read the full interview. You know how stuff can be put out of context to spark troll wars. Thanks for posting this though.

    He sounds sincere and doesn't appear to be starting a troll fest:

    "But Porter’s not denying he’s dabbled in the wubbs before. “I have a couple dubstep songs that are heavy and aggressive, and I don’t mean to knock the genre at all, but I think it became a little worn out. I mean, it’s been done so thoroughly, I think every aspect of hard dubstep has been explored.”

    He's not being a troll, he genuinely means it and is just pretentious and seems like a tool.

    Then again I wouldn't expect the guy who coined the term "complextro" to appreciate much else.
