A couple weeks back news broke that Flux Pavilion was asked by Lucasfilm and Disney to remix Star Wars’ “Rebel’s Theme.”
Flux Pavilion said that the remix wouldn’t be dubstep, but instead would be a gentle pace of 128 bpm. Many people were quick to judge Flux Pavilion for not staying true to his “roots” in dubstep, in which he replied by saying “Creatively I believe an artist makes art, and as such is eternally entitled to the freedom of using creativity as an expression of their ideas, more often than not taking many different forms through experimentation.” Flux continued on to say “I feel experimental growth is on occasion being put to one side out of fear of an immediate negative reaction.”
“What i’m saying is. If you want to hate something, that’s completely cool, and you are empowered to do so, but give your self some time to really learn what you hate about it. Don’t rest at a knee jerk reaction, you are denying yourself the pleasure of distilling and understanding your hatred at a deeper level. Don’t be a half assed Hater! Who knows, you may just surprise yourself and end up liking it,” said Flux.
