Why is dubstep more easy to buy than grime?

14 posts in this topic

Serious question.... Why is it that I can go on boomkat, junodownload, even play and find a shitload of the latest dubstep, up there and available for me to buy and download, but the grime just seems a lot harder to find?

Is it that Grime artists just aren't good at releasing their tracks? Or do I just need to look harder?

Long short answer: Dubstep does a much better job supporting itself than grime, it's artists buying other artists work, sells itself really, better market.

Short answer: Grime sucks

I'm starting to think more and more that grime is lacking producers. Says it all when I don't listen to radio for about 6 months, then tune in and hear 90% of the tunes that I heard 6 months ago

Grime is full of

-instrumentals that aren't well designed enough to be played by themselves

-vocalled by MCs who don't do justice to the beat

-played by DJs who keep favourites

-at a small amount of raves or radio sets

-leaving a crappy level of income to the scene

-'causing producers not to be bothered

It was always about the MC and not the Producer or DJ, when they were the ones able to push the scene.

When the MCs stopped caring and moved on to other things, the scene fell apart.

Grime wasn't taking the space dubstep currently fills anyway.

this never used to be the case tho

djs used to buy grime by the case load

erm, dunno how to continue that rhyme. but back in the day grime releases suddenly all had vocals on them, with little 8 bar intros. i started buying dubstep coz it sounded like grime with a focus on the dj, and the vinyl releases were of a much better quality. i dunno wots up with dubstep these days tho, bare weirdos and nut jobs listening to it, and making awful sh*t and calling it 'deathstep' or 'filthstep'. watch for the sh*t i'm gonna start making all u junkies can f*ck off back to the gabba room.
