Classical Music

If you’re a fan of dubstep and classical music, then you’ll love these five dubstep classical music artists. These artists have taken classical music and turned it into something completely new and exciting. From Bach to Beethoven, these artists have something for everyone.

The history of classical music

Classical music is a broad term that usually refers to the period from 1750 to 1820. This covers the time of Bach, Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. The music of these composers is also sometimes called ‘western art music’.

During the classical period, composers began to experiment with different ways of writing music. They started to use different instruments and different combinations of instruments. They also began to write longer pieces of music which were more complex in structure.

In the early 20th century, composers such as Debussy and Ravel started to experiment with different scales and rhythms. This led to a new style of classical music known as ‘impressionism’.

After the First World War, composers such as Stravinsky and Bartók wrote music which was influenced by folk traditions from their homeland. This led to a new style known as ‘nationalism’.

In the mid-20th century, composers such as Messiaen and Stockhausen wrote music which explored new ideas about harmony and rhythm. This led to a style known as ‘serialism’ or ‘modernism’.

The different types of classical music

There are different types of classical music, each with its own distinct characteristics and style. These include:

-Baroque: This is a highly ornate style of music that was popular in the 17th and 18th centuries. It is characterized by complex melodies and countermelodies, as well as extended harmonic progressions.

-Classical: This is the era of symphonies and sonatas. This period saw the development of more complex musical forms, such as the concerto and the sonata. The classical period began in the late 18th century and ended in the early 19th century.

-Romantic: The romantic period was marked by an increased emphasis on emotion and imagination. Composers began to experiment with new harmonic progressions and chromaticism. This period lasted from the early 19th century to the early 20th century.

-Modern: The modern period of classical music began at the turn of the 20th century. This period saw a rejection of traditional tonality and form in favor of more experimental approaches. Modern classical music includes both atonal and twelve-tone music, as well as serialism and minimalism.


Classical music and dubstep may not seem like they would go together, but there are actually a number of dubstep classical music artists out there. This type of music takes the best of both genres to create something unique and exciting. If you’re a fan of dubstep or classical music, or both, then you need to check out these five dubstep classical music artists.

What is dubstep?

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London in the late 1990s. It is generally characterized by sparse, syncopated rhythmic patterns with prominent sub-bass frequencies. The style emerged as an offshoot of UK garage, drawing on a lineage of related styles such as 2-step and dub reggae.

The history of dubstep

Originating in South London in the late 1990s, dubstep emerged as a new subgenre of electronic dance music (EDM). Taking cues from 2-step garage, grime, and dub music, dubstep artists created a unique sound that was characterized by deep bass lines, syncopated drum patterns, and sparse melodies. In the early 2000s, dubstep began to gain mainstream attention, with artists like Burial and Skream releasing acclaimed albums that blended the genre with elements of ambient, hip-hop, and electronica. By the mid-2000s, dubstep had become one of the most popular genres in the UK, giving rise to a new generation of artists like Dave Fire, Katy B, and Nero.

In the 2010s, dubstep experienced something of a revival thanks to its incorporation into the popular EDM subgenre known as brostep. Brostep is typified by its heavy basslines and aggressive rhythms, and it has been popularized by artists like Skrillex, Calvin Harris, and Deadmau5. While some purists decry brostep as a bastardization of dubstep’s original sound, there is no denying its commercial appeal; in 2012, Skrillex won Grammy Awards for Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronica Album for his album Bangarang.
