“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!
