[VIDEO] “Why Do You Listen To Dubstep?” Street Interview with Local Fan Alias Fernandez

 

Why is dubstep so appealing to L.A. fans? The genre’s popularity has skyrocketed over the years and has made its way into the mainstream music scene. With growing technology, the art form has been made easily accessible to a widespread audience and has allowed that audience to create beats of their own.

But what makes the wobbly bass and electronic music so appealing? We went to Dim Mak Studios and interviewed Alias Fernandez on what he thinks about Dubstep in this modern age. We also spoke to him about his first dubstep experience, who can make dubstep, and how he not only utilizes his computer to create beats but how he uses live instruments as well.
