What is Dubstep?

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that emerged in the late 1990s. It is characterized by a distinctive wobbly bass sound, often described as “bass drops”. Dubstep music is often created with software synthesisers, drum machines, and digital audio workstations.


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. In the United Kingdom, the earliest dubstep releases date back to 1998.

The most identifiable characteristic of dubstep is the “wub” or “wav”, a lowfrequency, highly distorted bass sound created by using a lowpass filter to cut off all but the lowest frequencies of a sound source, typically a sawtooth wave or square wave.

The music generally features a tempo of 140 beats per minute (drops to half-time at 70 bpm for half measure), and includes heavy basslines and synthesizers. The earliest dubstep releases date back to 1998, and were usually featured as B-sides of 2-step garage single releases. These tracks were darker, more experimental remixes with less emphasis on vocals, and attempted to incorporate elements of breakbeat and drum and bass into 2-step.

Dubstep has become popular in recent years, with its popularity growing exponentially since 2010. This can be seen through its incorporation in popular songs, movies, and video games.

One of the earliest examples of dubstep in popular culture is in the 2002 film, 28 Days Later. In the film’s opening scene, the track “El-B – Ho Bass” by dubstep producer El-B is played during a montage of the main character, Jim, waking up from a coma and adjusting to a post-apocalyptic world.[1] This famous scene was highly praised by fans of the film and helped to increase the exposure of dubstep to a mainstream audience.

In 2010, dubstep began to be regularly featured in songs by mainstream pop and hip-hop artists. For example, Rihanna’s hit single “Only Girl (In the World)” features a heavy dubstep drop midway through the song.[2] In 2011, Britney Spears’ “Hold It Against Me” also featured a dubstep drop,[3] as did Katy Perry’s “E.T.”[4] That same year, Skrillex’s song “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording.[5] Since then, dubstep has been used in many other well-known songs such as Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven,”[6] Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,”[7] and Beyoncé’s “Formation.”[8]

In addition to its presence in music, dubstep has also been featured prominently in many movies and television shows over the past few years. For instance, the 2012 film Ted features multiple scenes with characters listening to and dancing to dubstep tracks.[9] In 2015, an episode of The Simpsons entitled “The Great Simpsina” revolved around Bart Simpsons becoming a successful dubstep DJ under the alias “DJ Dr. Demento.”[10] Other examples include episodes of Adventure Time,[11] Family Guy,[12] Robot Chicken,[13] and South Park.[14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26](List sources)

Why Do People Love Dubstep?

There are many reasons why people love dubstep music. The first reason is that dubstep music is very energetic and upbeat. This type of music can make people happy and excited. Another reason why people love dubstep music is because it is very easy to dance to.

The Power of the Drop

While the popularity of dubstep has waxed and waned in recent years, the energy and power of the “drop” remains as strong as ever. The drop is the moment in a dubstep track when the bass and drums suddenly become much heavier and more intense. It’s often accompanied by a change in the music’s tempo, which can make it even more exhilarating.

For many people, the drop is the best part of dubstep. It’s the moment when all the tension that has been building up in the track finally releases, and you can let yourself go completely. If you’re trying to explain dubstep to someone who’s never heard it before, playing them a track with a really well-executed drop is often the best way to do it.

Dubstep drops can vary quite a bit in terms of their intensity, so there’s something for everyone. Some tracks have drops that are so heavy they’ll make your chest vibrate, while others are more subtle and restrained. No matter what your taste, there’s bound to be a dubstep track out there with a drop that will get you hooked.

The Catchiness of the Beat

There’s no doubt that dubstep is catchy. The genre’s signature wub-wub-wub bass lines are impossible to ignore, and the heavy beats get your head nodding without even realizing it. But there’s more to the catchiness of dubstep than just the beat. The genre often uses vocal samples that are repetitive and easy to sing along to, and the melodies are often very simple, making them easy to remember. All of these factors come together to create a sound that is both catchy and addictive.

The Uniqueness of the Sound

The music of dubstep is characterized by its unique sound, which is a mix of heavy bass and drum beats with occasional synthesizer or other electronic effects. This sound is achieved by using a variety of special production techniques, such as manipulating the tempo and pitch of the music, and adding echo and reverb effects. Dubstep producers also often use samples from other genres of music, such as R&B, hip hop, and reggae, to create their own unique sound.


In conclusion, we can say that the EDM Tribe loves Dubstep music because of its heavy bass and energetic sound. The genre is perfect for dancing and raving, and it is clear that the fans of this type of music are very passionate about it.
