Chino Moreno: 'Not A Fan Of Dubstep'
Deftones frontman Chino Moreno might love electronic music, but unlike his friends in Korn he isn't a fan of dubstep. "I love some electronic music", he told KROQ. "I'm not a big fan of dubstep but there is so much good electronic music out there". Chino has introduced a wave of crossover electronic and rock acts to his fans at DJ sets, including acts like Three Trapped Tigers which combine their technical rock ability with the composition style of Aphex Twin. But despite the allure of new acts, Chino remembers where his love of electronic music began: "I grew up in the eighties, that's probably why I like some of the earlier electronic from Kraftwerk to all throughout new wave and things like that. "A band like Depeche Mode would go out and record them hitting a trash can with a steel rod or something and recording it. And that would be one of their sounds of the drums. I love the creativeness of that kind of really raw sampling". Deftones will release their next album "Koi No Yokan" in November, but the lead single "Tempest" was unveiled for streaming yesterday. As rock fans, can you still admire electronic music? Share your beat-based music tips in the comments.
