I was reminded of ‘First Of The Year (Equinox)’ when my friend, Joe, showed me this. I’ve heard similar criticism of Skrillex before and I wonder how much it’s because his American take on an originally British genre is seen to lack authenticity. And, as dubstep becomes ever more daytime Radio 1, the trajectory of Skrillex mirrors that of Pendulum in D&B five years ago. That said, there’s a lot of very ordinary, crossover dubstep, which *isn’t* made by Skrillex; and, whoever they are, they didn’t make the monstrous ‘First Of The Year’.
