Step 1: Wait for the drop. Step 2: Have a seizure.
Yes – such is the proper way to dance to a dubstep tune (not that I’d know anything about dancing. If some people have two left feet, I proudly declare I have three). After discovering this art of music not too long ago, I decided I’d have a shot writing a post about it.
As already pointed out by several other articles, the dubstep genre today has taken on a whole new level, with artists ranging from Justin Bieber to Jay-Z piggy-backing on this eccentric sound. As a result of it’s popularity, it is becoming more and more difficult to define what exactly dubstep is. Our friends at Wikipedia describe the genre as a ‘tightly coiled production with overwhelming bass-lines, reverberant drum patterns and occasional vocals’.
Personally, I’d just describe it as ‘the sound robots make when they have sex’.
However you choose to describe it though, one things for sure: it’s impossible to miss. When you hear it, you’ll recognize it.
With that said, let me introduce my favourite five:
Vision – Gemini
Unruly (Original Mix) – Messinian, Boy Kid Cloud, Dirty Talk
UKF Dubstep Tutorial – Dubba Jonny
I guess that’s all I have for now. Thank you for reading, and stay tuned for future-posts! Feel free to comment and suggest other amazing dubstep tunes!
