Excision, Paper Diamond, Vaski

REED JACKSON
8 pm., Friday February 01 | $35.
Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 
[DUBSTEP] The dubstep genre has lost its sheen. Due to oversaturation in the mainstream, it no longer shocks or awes you, which was really the appeal of its ridiculousness. This is a bummer for Canadian-based producer Excision, who, along with his partner in crime, Datsik, really helped usher in the genre. His over-aggressive bass lines and transformer-sounding warps became the blueprint for thousands of imitators who took the sound from experimental and original to cookie-cutter. Perhaps stubbornly, Excision has stuck to this blueprint with his latest singles, which have predictably failed to match the excitement of his earlier work. There’s something to admire in his perseverance, though. After the dubstep-laced K-mart commercials and movie previews are gone, chances are Excision will still be here.
