Default Skrillex:Yay, or Nay?

I'm do not have biased opinions on Skrillex, I just want to see what people's perspectives are. So, what do you think of him?

Personally I think Skrillex has gone downhill. At the risk of sounding like a hipster douche, his old stuff is much better. His latest EP, bangarang, is nothing special, but then if you go back to his stuff like Reptile's Theme and Slats Slats Slats, they're so much better.

But I'd say Skrillex is a yay.

I liked him at first. I keep tabs on EDM, so when Dubstep came along, it was neat. It wasn't like anything else I'd listened to. Once it started becoming more and more popular and started to be played everywhere and by everyone, I began to get sick of it. Skrillex was one of the guys who was really at the forefront of it all. I stopped listening to his music, since I heard him everywhere, and slowly stopped listening to Dubstep in its entirety. Well, the brostep stuff anyway. What I enjoy listening to was the topic for my latest blog post.

He's fun to listen to. Though, I wouldn't play his stuff (or any brostep for that matter) all the time or anything

The first thing I ran into when I checked out Skrillex... the first song I checked out... had DJ Shadow's Organ Donor played almost in its entirety followed by 45-60 seconds of very random dubstep whompstep brostep. I mean, he didn't even remix the song, or 'sample' it. He played DJ Shadow's song, slapped a drop on the end of it, and gave it a name and put it out. That was flabbergasting enough. Then I find that all of his songs are pretty lame. I couldn't find one track I would like to hear on multiple listens. Big no vote here. And yea, I'm a dubstep fan, but I'll stick to Benga, Skream, Distance, and the like instead..

The music, if I ignore the IRRITATINGLY large amount of it I hear on a day to day basis, and just listen to it objectively, is alright. 'My Name Is Skrillex' is a pretty solid track, as is 'Kill Everybody' or whatever the hell it's called. It's good background music. The man himself irritates the piss out of me. Mostly it's those obnoxious ****ing glasses.

I mean really, who needs glasses that goddamn big?
