1 definition by Alex1134

A derogatory term used to refer to drum and bass, in the jump-up genre, that has an extremely simple bassline, and a swingbeat that sounds similar to a typical circus march.

Noisia, Tech Itch, Evol Intent and Photek are NOT Clownstep. They are actually the antithesis of Clownstep.
The best example of Clownstep would be Shimon and Andy C's Body Rock. Or Dillinja's Twist em out.
