It’s time to get your groove on with the best of dubstep music. From the latest hits to classic favorites, Rocky Music has got you covered.

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 a heavy bass sound and aggressive beats. Dubstep songs often have a dark, eerie quality to them, which has made them popular in horror movies and video games.

The History of Dubstep

The history of dubstep is often traced back to the late 1990s in London, when a group of producers began experimenting with the “riddim” and “garage” styles that were popular at the time. These producers, including Skream, Benga and Artwork, started to experiment with new sounds and textures, and the result was a completely new genre of music.

Dubstep emerged as its own distinct genre in the early 2000s, when producers like Horsepower Productions and El-B started to release tracks that incorporated elements of dub, garage and 2-step. These tracks were often played at London clubs like FWD>> and Plastic People, and they quickly gained a following among clubgoers and DJs.

As dubstep gained popularity, it began to attract attention from outside of the underground club scene. In 2006, Radio 1 DJ John Peel featured a track by Kenyan producer Om Unit on his show, and in 2007, BBC Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson included several dubstep tracks on his compilation album Brownswood Bubblers Five. These releases helped to introduce dubstep to a wider audience, and by the end of the 2000s, the genre had become mainstream.

Today, dubstep is one of the most popular genres of electronic dance music (EDM), with artists like Skrillex, Nero and Flux Pavilion selling out stadiums around the world. However, some purists argue that dubstep has lost its way in recent years, straying too far from its underground roots. Whatever your opinion may be, there’s no denying that dubstep has had a huge impact on electronic music over the past two decades.

The Best Dubstep Songs

Dubstep can be pretty hit or miss. A lot of it is pretty terrible, but every once in a while you’ll find a song that’s really awesome. Here are some of the best dubstep songs that I’ve come across.

“Breathe” by Skrillex

Skrillex is one of the most popular dubstep artists out there, and “Breathe” is one of his most well-known songs. The song features a heavy bassline and distorted synths that are characteristic of dubstep. The song also has a catchy hook that will keep you hooked for the entire song.

“Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” by Skrillex

This song has been hailed as a breakout hit in the world of dubstep, and it’s easy to see why. The track is full of energy and features a great drop that is sure to get your heart racing.

“Bangarang” by Skrillex

“Bangarang” is a song by American electronic music producer Skrillex. It was released as a single on December 23, 2011. The song features vocals from Sirah. It peaked at number 84 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and has been certified platinum in the United States and Canada.

The song’s title comes from the 1987 film The Lost Boys, in which the main character Sam (played by Kiefer Sutherland) chants “Bangarang” to call forth a group of lost boys to do his bidding.

“Levels” by Avicii

This infectiously catchy song was Avicii’s breakthrough hit, reaching #1 in several countries. It’s built around a sample of Etta James’ classic “Something’s Got a Hold on Me,” and the result is a perfect blend of old and new, with a healthy dose of bass thrown in for good measure.

“Bass Cannon” by Flux Pavilion

British artist Joshua Steele, better known by his stage name Flux Pavilion, released “Bass Cannon” in 2011. The song was an instant hit in the dubstep world, and its popularity has only grown in the years since. “Bass Cannon” is characterized by its heavy bassline and energetic drop, making it a perfect choice for any dubstep fan looking for a song to get them hyped up.

The Future of Dubstep

The genre of music known as dubstep has been around for more than a decade, but it has only recently entered the mainstream. Dubstep is a type of electronic dance music that is characterized by its heavy bass and drumbeat. It originated in the UK in the early 2000s, and has since spread to other parts of the world, including the United States.

Dubstep is often credited with being one of the most innovative and exciting genres of music today. Its popularity has skyrocketed in recent years, due in part to the rise of social media and online music streaming platforms. Dubstep tracks are now being played on mainstream radio stations and at major music festivals around the globe.

So what does the future hold for dubstep? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure: dubstep is here to stay.
