I’m a music producer and I love making techno and dubstep. I’ll be posting my music here, as well as discussing my creative process.


I love all types of music. I grew up listening to country, but I also enjoy rap, rock, and even opera. However, my two favorite genres of music are techno and dubstep. I love the fast pace and the hard beats. They get me pumped up and ready to take on the day.

What is Techno?

Techno is a genre of electronic dance music that emerged in the mid-to-late 1980s. It is characterized by a repetitive four on the floor beat and often has a tempo of between 120 and 150 beats per minute. Techno is often used as an umbrella term for various electronic dance music genres such as tech house, electronica, house and trance.

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 a development within a broader post-garage dubstep sound on the Croydon dubstep scene in the early 2000s.

Techno vs Dubstep

In the world of electronic dance music, there are many different genres and sub-genres. Techno and dubstep are two of the most popular genres. They both have their own unique sound and style. Techno is typically more fast-paced and energetic, while dubstep is usually more dark and atmospheric.

The Differences between Techno and Dubstep

Techno and dubstep are two electronic dance music genres with a lot of similarities, but there are also some key differences. Both genres emerged in the early 1990s, and both feature heavy bass lines, synthesizers and samples. But dubstep is generally slower than techno, with a tempo of around 140 beats per minute compared to techno’s usual 140-160 bpm. Dubstep also typically has a 2-step rhythm, while techno has a 4-4 beat. And while techno is often based on melodic loops, dubstep tracks often have a more chaotic feel, with jarring sound effects and unexpected changes in tempo and dynamics.

The Similarities between Techno and Dubstep

The two most common things that people say about techno and dubstep are that techno is repetitive and that dubstep is all about the drop. But there’s a lot more to these genres than meets the eye. In fact, there are plenty of similarities between techno and dubstep, from the way the music is produced to the way it is experienced.

Both genres are heavily reliant on technology, both in terms of production and performance. DJs and producers in both genres use computers to create their music, often using software such as Ableton Live or Logic Pro. And live performances are often enhanced with the use of technology, whether it’s through laptop DJs using controllers such as the Novation Launchpad or dubstep producers using samplers and sequencers to trigger their sounds.

Both genres also place a great deal of importance on the dancefloor experience. Many artists in both genres make music specifically designed for dancing, and both genres are often associated with nightclub culture. This focus on the dancefloor experience is reflected in the music itself, which often features heavy basslines and hypnotic rhythms designed to keep dancers moving.

Finally, both genres have strong underground scenes that have grown up around DIY culture. In both techno and dubstep, there is a strong focus on independent labels and DIY events, with many artists self-releasing their music or releasing it on small labels. There is also a strong sense of community in both scenes, with artists often collaborating or working together to promote their music.

My Music

I love all types of music, but my two favorite genres are techno and dubstep. I love the way the music makes me feel, it’s like nothing else in the world. When I’m listening to techno or dubstep, I feel like I can do anything. The music is so uplifting and motivates me to keep going.

What I like about Techno

I like the way techno can make me feel. It’s like an adrenaline rush. The music is fast paced and always moving. I never get bored with it.

What I like about Dubstep

There are a lot of things I like about dubstep, but I think the two main things are the drops and the bass. The drops are usually the most intense part of the song, and I really enjoy listening to them. The bass is also very important in dubstep, and I think it makes the music sound really cool.


In conclusion, techno and dubstep are two very popular genres of music that are enjoyed by many people all over the world. They both have their own unique styles and sound that make them stand out from other genres of music. If you enjoy listening to music that is high energy and full of excitement, then you should definitely check out these two genres of music.
