What is dubstep?

Dubstep is a type of electronic dance music that originated in the early 2000s in the United Kingdom. It is characterized by heavy bass lines, 808 drum beats, and syncopated rhythms. Dubstep tracks often have a dark and atmospheric sound, and many producers incorporate elements of other genres such as hip hop, grime, and garage into their tracks.

The history of dubstep

Some say dubstep began in South London in the late 1990s. Early dubstep was often more minimalist, with long, dark, murky tracks (usually around 140 beats per minute) that emphasized rhythm and sub-bass frequencies. This style was often inspired by 2-step garage, jungle, and grime (another homegrown genre that was just beginning to take off at the time).

The elements of 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 a development of earlier UK garage and jungle styles, and draws upon a diverse range of sources including dub, techno, 2-step, drum and bass, breakbeat hardcore, and electro.

The genre’s popularity increased dramatically in the early 2010s, with a number of mainstream hits such as Silicone Soul’s “Right On!” (2005), Skream’s “Midnight Request Line” (2005), and “In for the Kill” (2009) by La Roux featuring vocals from Kanye West. In 2012, drum and bass artist Pendulum released their mainstream crossover hit “Witchcraft”. Dubstep has also been featured in films such as Children of Men (2006) and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010).

The word dubstep is first recorded in 2002, although the style had been around for at least a decade before that. The word is derived from the use of the Wobble board effect first used by producers such as English producer Sonique on her 1995 single “It Feels So Good”.

While dubstep did not gain widespread popularity until the early 2010s, its antecedents can be traced back to other forms of electronic dance music such as 2-step garage, which was popular in the late 1990s. Other possible precursors to dubstep include jungle music and UK garage. Te Words “dub” and “step” are both slang terms used in Jamaican dancehall culture; step refers to walking or stomping while maintaining rhythm with one’s feet while dub refers to prerecorded instrumental versions of songs that deejays would play over vocal tracks giving them an added edge with their dancers or listeners.

The artists who popularized dubstep

Artists who popularized dubstep include Skream, Benga, and Digital Mystikz. These artists often worked together and helped to create the distinctive dubstep sound. They also emphasized the importance of space and atmosphere in dubstep music, which helped to give it a more atmospheric and ethereal sound.

Interestingly, one of the latest trends in dubstep is a return to its roots: music without words. That’s right, no vocals, just pure, unadulterated dubstep beats. This new wave of dubstep is often referred to as “instrumental dubstep” or “idub” for short.
