Haven't been able to stop bumpin this tune for a minute now!
Quite a lot of RnB/Rap sort of music in this thread (at least the last few pages). To add something else, here's my favorite song from 2010. Play at high volume!
^^^That's one dope ass funky beat. Love it when the heavy base drops!
Yeah I've heard that track at the clubs a couple of times over the past year or so, never knew who it was till now. Soft Euro is this considered dub step?
I'm not really an expert on the subject as I listen to all kinds of music and am pretty much depended on what a couple of my friends who are semi-professionals in the music business recommend. I believe this isn't called 'real' dubstep by a lot of people, but some sort of subgenre. Seems true as I rarely like the songs that are really called dubstep; this is a bit more energetic.
I barely only listen to Skrillex (from this genre) and only a few songs (a lot) except for Skream's remix of 'In for the Kill' by La Roux which was an upgrade on a song I already liked.
somebody once said, and i agreed, that dubstep is like drum & bass... if you gave it down syndrome
haha, I like that one. Actually, what I like about the 'scary monsters' song by skrillex is that is that you constantly create that drum and bass beat in your head.
You also brought up memories of my (pretty old) dad once seeing a typical rapper on tv. He honestly thought the kid was probably spastic and mentally handicapped as well. He, with the concerned voice people use for these occassions, asked if I new what was wrong with this kid. (And that was even before hearing any lyrics).
Here's a dope track I found from this same dude Skrillex
You guys ever hear of this guy 'The Weeknd'?
From Toronto. Uber talented.
They actually featured this song on the ads for the latest Season of Entourage.
Think he just signed with Drake or one of those guys.
I'm getting back into Sublime and Blues Traveler these days. Remembering how good the 90s were for music.
John Popper is SUCH a talented guy.
Highly recommend you watch this one all the way through if you get the time, or at least until Popper has his awesome solo on the harp.

Man, you are right Joey, Popper sure can blow a mean harp.
Recently I've been listening to Donny Hathaway. He was a true legend of soul from the late 60s/70s who died too young. You can feel this guys pain when he sings.
A couple of my favourites are below:
Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
Love the Donny Hathaway songs. Just before the summer they had a piece on him on national televion. I had rarely ever listened to him and still haven't, but I really should. It kinda reminds me of my study time when I (while studying at night) almost exclusively listened to some Nina Simone and almost every day (I studied) at least two or three times the cd 'piano reflections' by Duke Ellington. I nearly hate the big band stuff, but adored those songs.
To add another genre: my favorite metal band by far just happens to be Canadian. So most of you guys know this band pretty well (No? Well, you should!). Strapping Young Lad with the genius frontman (and producer) Devin Townsend. They produce brilliant bombastic walls of sound coming right at you.
Again: play at high volume (but warn youre neighbours). I'll post a song that starts off reasonably easy on the ears to get acclimated (it distorts a bit on my pc sometimes, but that might just be my sound as it is the official video).
Since we're on this kinda tip!
Mose Allison blues classic:
probably not everyone's speed... but i've been listening to the dropkick murphys a ton lately... they have a concert coming up soon in rochester that im making the trip for...
possibly the greatest one hit wonder of all time eith the worst name.
oh, can't drop that without dropping this.
If Your Uncle Jack Helped You Off An Elephant, Would You Help Your Uncle Jack Off An Elephant?
Sometimes, I like to buy a book on CD and listen to it, while reading music.
You guys ever hear of Joey DeFrancesco?
Horrible looking man, but Holy Moly can he rock a Jazz Organ.
This one actually has Frank Vignola playing with him, which is a lovely treat.
For those who aren't familiar with Frank Vignola, he is an infinitely talented Guitar player that just so happens to look like Bill Gates:
That my good sirs is a couple of true aficionados right there.
