a type of subgenre of 2-step and dub. it consists of two noises and a "wobble". set into pop culture in england by Skream, Oris Jay, and EL-B, the movement began, after coming to america, artists such as skrillex shit on it, used the structure of complextro and called it dubstep. now skream and his buddies hated that music, called it brostep so they had nothing to do with it, ended the movement, and quit making dubstep because of how much shame it brought to them.

1. A genre of music characterized by deep bass and a "wub wub" sound.

2. It sounds somewhat similar to the Terminator having an orgasm.

3. A genre of music that Skrillex ruined.

4. Music that peels deep into the new generation's need for over stimulation.

5. A genre that many people hate because it has no "soul," but when compared to modern pop music it actually makes you dumb 70% slower.

6. The most misunderstood music in the universe.

7. Music that actually has less "wubs" than those in my head when you try to tell me why its dumb.

A genre of electronic music that is typically 140 BPM with a half time kick and snare drum pattern.

Dubstep originated in the early 2000's in London. A combination of Dub, which is very similar to what most people call Reggae, and 2-Step Garage, which is where the heavy bass elements of Dubstep come from.

Dubstep today is very different from when it first originated. People unhappy with this "evolution" decide to call it apart from the Dubstep they know and love with the name Brostep.

As a person who enjoys both "types" of dubstep it is hard to put a label on them. The only thing upsetting about this genre is the amount of hate and ignorance that goes back and forth between people who discuss it.
Earlier dubstep artists who basically formed the genre.

More well known artists that recently took it to a new direction.

A unusual style of music with a 2 beat "pulsing" rhythm. Many "dubstep" fans are mislead into thinking that dubstep is just about the bass, and everything with a slight electronic sound or dubstep's "signature" feature, "wubs" is dubstep. In reality, however, bass doesn't really matter much, and dubstep doesn't entirely rely on electronics.
Very few songs by Skrillex, acclaimed "dubstep" artist
