Here’s another event sponsored by a major corporation in an effort to extent their brand, in this case, the Scion line of cars to a target market, us. The event is potentially free, if you RSVP (give them juicy information about yourself) and get there before the venue reaches maximum capacity. They are bringing in RUSKO who I think has done some great things for the music we love and 12 Planet who runs the SMOG outfit in LA, but is this concept taking it too far? Is this the beginning of the end for dubstep? Will corporations and their marketing plans eventually take this music that, in my opinion, has become so popular due to its lack of cookie cutter arrangements (cough: DnB) and its inability to be penned down and cheapen it for their own marketing campaigns. Dubstep has always been a breath of fresh air. What comes after this corporate exploitation? Will we see ridiculous pop stars like Ke$ha, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga having dubstep tunes on their next mind numbing albums? I certainly hope not. Well, until that dreaded day comes, here’s some “potentially” free dubstep action in Tampa:
