NiT GriT: Genius or Retard?

(sorry for saying "retard" in the title. i did it for the 'lulz')


I first heard of NiT GriT this past February when my ex-roommate (who is a complete dubstep noob and fills his playlists with 'hits' from the likes of Bassnectar) played me some of his tracks from his soundcloud. At first, I thought it was just some more shit--note his boringly ubiquitous wobble-bass 'roar' in some of his early tracks (such as 'One Love'). But after following his carrier label, Simplify Recordings (on twitter), I clicked a link that lead to NiT GriT's new 'single' (below)



Now, all 'COD'-styled profile pic images aside, how does his production truly rate? Although I bet he's using Fruity Loops as his standby 'DAW,' you can't deny his technical ability. He's no slowby when it comes to gettting a 'full' sound. If sounds were like diapers, his would be bursting at the seems. But this isn't that amazing, really. How many super-talented 'bedroom engineers' are out there today making subpar dubstep? Hundreds. What strikes me about his tunes is his ability to integrate 'sad/sorrowful' melodies into his bass licks. <<&lt;---THIS IS WHAT I LIKE ABOUT HIS MUSIC

...And to be honest, this is all it takes for his tunes to kick ass. This guy--an AMERICAN dubstep producer nonetheless--understands that chordal progressions are important. It hooks people and keeps them hooked for a long time. It gives the song a 'soul.' It makes me cry a little sometimes if I'm alone. His melody 'lead' hooks are sometimes a little lacking, but the bass always sounds fucking full, and that's enough to keep a dancefloor moving, so yeah. awesome.

(classic gangster 'street' pose)

But then u go 2 his soundcloud and download his tracks (which many are free--awesome. All of them were uploaded via .WAV--NOT FUCKING AWESOME, DUDE), and u find that not only are they not 320's, but they're bizarrely named when you import em into iTunes. His sound is professional, and the fact that he's signed to a halfway legit label is... well, legit. But his logo's and all that are really lacking.

SOMEBODY PLZ MANAGE THIS DUDE SO HE CAN GET TASTEFUL!

It appears to me as if your attempt to make an intellectual bash of NiT GriT have failed. Perhaps you should focus on why you feel the need to bash people who are pursuing their goals their way. Before you accuse me of being a friend/fan of his, I am not. I don't actually care for too much of his music, but I respect his right to make and promote it how he feels necessary.

lol@ hatin on bassnectar. that man can produce circles around 99.9% of all supposed dubstep "artists" out there.

seems to be the popular thing to do amongst people who like their dubstep slow, boring, quiet, and mind-numbingly homogenous. WANK.

Maybe lazerbass just isn't your kind of dubstep? I saw this guy live up in the northwest and it was an amazing show. Dont knock this guy, he's a great musician. Do DMT and join my cult!!

Errm, Bassnectar is god? Like 3% of all DJs in this world have even half as much talent and soul as Lorin does...
