We’re not sure what to make of dubstep versions of classical music… but we’re definitely intrigued! Check out some of our favorite tracks and see if you can get into the groove.


We’re not entirely sure what to make of this trend, but it seems that a number of classical pieces have been given the dubstep treatment. We’ve compiled a few examples below, and we have to say that some of them are actually quite good! Whether you’re a fan of dubstep or not, you have to admit that these are creative interpretations of some well-known classics.

– Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor
– Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5
– Mozart’s Requiem
– Rossini’s William Tell Overture

So what do you think? Do these dubstep versions add anything to the original pieces, or do they simply miss the mark?

The Good

We’ll start with the good: some of these are legitimately good. The tunes are still recognizable, but they’ve been brought into the 21st century with some heavy bass and some interesting production choices. If you’re a fan of the original pieces, there’s a good chance you’ll appreciate these modern versions.

The interesting beats

This new trend of remixing classical music with dubstep beats is definitely interesting. Dubstep is known for its heavy bass and fast tempo, so when you mix it with the elegance of classical music, you get a pretty unique sound. We’re not sure if it’s good or bad, but it’s definitely something different.

The new sound

There’s something about Dubstep that just makes you want to move. Whether it’s the hard-hitting bass or the frantic energy, there’s no denying that Dubstep gets your blood pumping. And what better way to get your adrenaline going than by listening to classical music?

That’s right, classical music. In recent years, there has been a growing trend of artists creating Dubstep versions of well-known classical pieces. And while some purists may scoff at the idea, there’s no denying that these new versions are catchy and exciting.

So if you’re looking for a new way to enjoy classical music, check out some of these Dubstep versions. You might be surprised at how much you like them!

The Bad

We’ll be honest, we’re not really sure what’s going on with this one. It’s not that we don’t appreciate the creativity that goes into making a dubstep remix of a classical piece. But

It’s not classical music

Dubstep versions of classical music? We’re not sure… Many people who are not familiar with dubstep think that it is a form of electronic dance music (EDM). However, dubstep is its own genre with its own style and conventions. While it may borrow some elements from EDM, dubstep is its own thing. One of the things that makes dubstep unique is its heavy emphasis on bass. In fact, many dubstep tracks are little more than basslines with some drums and other sounds thrown in for good measure. This can make dubstep tracks sound very different from their classical counterparts.

It’s too repetitive

Dubstep can be extremely repetitive. It often features a single bassline that is repeated over and over again, with little variation. This can make it very difficult to listen to for extended periods of time. Classical music, on the other hand, is typically much more varied, with different instruments playing different parts that come together to create a more complex overall sound. This diversity can make it more interesting and enjoyable to listen to for long periods of time.

The Verdict

After much deliberation, we’ve come to the conclusion that we’re not quite sure about dubstep versions of classical music. On one hand, it’s a fun and interesting twist on traditional songs. On the other hand, it can be a bit jarring and take away from the beauty of the original piece.

It’s not for everyone

We’ll be honest, we’re not entirely sure about this one. Some people seem to love it, while others can’t stand it. If you’re a fan of classical music, there’s a good chance you’ll find these dubstep versions of classical pieces interesting, if not downright enjoyable. But if you’re not already a fan of classical music, it’s unlikely that these will convert you.

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that is characterized by heavy bass and often complex drum patterns. It’s not exactly the most delicate or refined of genres, so when you combine it with classical music, the results can be… interesting, to say the least.

There are plenty of examples of dubstep versions of classical pieces out there – just do a quick search on YouTube or Soundcloud and you’ll find hours’ worth of material. So if you’re feeling curious, go ahead and give some a try. But don’t say we didn’t warn you!

It’s worth a listen

We have to admit, we were a bit skeptical at first. But after giving it a listen, we have to say that we’re actually kind of digging it.

It’s not for everyone, and it’s definitely not what you would call “traditional” classical music. But if you’re looking for something a little different, and you’re open to trying something new, then we say go for it!

So there you have it. Our verdict? It’s worth a listen.
