    Default Lately I've been really diggin' Dubstep

    Dubstep

    Dubstep is a genre of electronic music that has its roots in London's early 2000s UK garage scene. The genre's name was coined by Ammunition Promotions. Musically, dubstep is distinguished by its dark mood, sparse rhythms, and emphasis on bass. Dubstep started to spread beyond small local scenes in late 2005 and early 2006,....

    resource: wikipedia


    The more and more I hear it, I start liking it more. At first I was like...wtf... seems slow, almost boring. That all changed when you hear this music on a BIG sound system. You can really feel the bass move through your body. Really rattles the chest cavity. HAHA

    I find that this music works pretty well, when you want to chill out your audience and build them up for the next 'climax'

    Usually produced at 140'ish bpm, it'd fit nice with alot of songs.

    Thanks for the spot!

    I am getting more and more into as well.

    It's big with the ladies, as is Minimal over here. Still not too fond of the idea of an all night club dub session though.

    yeah, i know what you mean about having a nite of ALL dubstep - just like mentioned in the youtube videos, dubstep is almost like an acquired taste

    It's nice to hear when a few are placed in a mix set tho.

    I'm lovin the steps right now,

    Your right about it generally being to slow to make a whole night of, but check out Fabric live 42 mixed by Freq Nasty. I could dance to that mix 5 times over.

    Also check out High Rankin, he is this totally dope producer from Bristol (I think), his tracks are somewhere in between dubstep and D&B, they have ridiculous amounts of energy.

    High Rankin's tracks are the musical equivalent of a chainsaw on crack.

    Dubstep is great to start off and finish a night of with lots of killer drum and bass in between

    I love dubstep. I remember when I visited London, Plastician and Skream were playing on a club called FWD, and it was awesome! Really 3d music, I'd say...My favorites right now are Monsta, Skream, Plastician and Kode 9.
