2012 rapture confirmed: Bieber doing dubstep

Image for 2012 rapture confirmed: Bieber doing dubstep

“Commercially dance music is at the furthest point it can be,” said scene veteran Carl Cox to inthemix this week. “Apart from getting Taylor Swift and Celine Dion in, it cannot go any further commercially.” Well, Carl, we see your Taylor Swift and Celine Dion, and raise you one Justin Bieber with dubstep on his mind.

The pop star – whose “balls have dropped”, according to his manager – is courting the wubbs on his next album Believe. “I’m about halfway through, I’m experimenting,” Bieber told USA Today. “What’s big right now are beats that are in the clubs, like dubstep. So I want to mess with that stuff, but also stay me.” Skream: it’s time to make your millions.

This week in an interview with Rolling Stone, regular messageboard whipping boy Skrillex seemed to prophesise the final jump of the shark. “There will come a time when [dubstep] will be watered down and sensationalised like everything else,” he said. “That’s not a bad thing, every type of music goes through that. But right now, for how big it is, if you turn on Kiss FM, there’s no real dubstep on the radio right now.” Bieber to the rescue!

Puberty can be a confusing time, the Beebs probably just wants to rebel.

Like Cox said, it is already a very commercial cheesy genre largely consisting of pop music samples in between wobs. Hopefully this spells the end of dubstep (or atleast brostep).

Use the like button kane, that's what it's there for.

Skrillex comments about how dubstep will become watered down and sensationalised, doesn't see irony.

Yes, that's because it is your music that is being played.

Hop on Beebs, there's plenty of room for everyone in the commercial dubstep band wagon.

LoL I wonder if Bieber's gonna make dubstep super popular ... among tween girls, that is. :hooray:
Beebs & Wubs :violins:

But it's okay really - at least he's not trying to pull off a Paris Hilton move and mess with a decent music genre. :P
