In a recent interview with TheRFW.com during his ongoing Shpongletron Experience music tour, electronic musician Simon Posford called the increasingly popular dubstep music genre a "fad," which he expected "to die out," or morph into something completely different.
I’m not particularly into dubstep myself, so I’m not going to suddenly start producing dubstep just ‘cause it’s trendy. I mean I’ve never done that with any sort of music. I incorporate what influences me and what I listen to, so I guess if I start listening to a lot of dubstep then it might creep into the music but as of now I haven’t. I think dubstep seems like any musical fad, I think it will probably die out. Or not die out, but you know these things always diversify, they incorporate other genres. So rather than me incorporate dubstep it’s much more likely that dubstep will incorporate other styles of music and splinter into different versions of itself and different genres within the genre.
You're not alone, Simon.
