A kind of modern dubstep that's much quieter, less wild, and more controlled. The focus of most Chillstep (as the name implies) is to help you chill out, to relax. Chillstep often incorporates a slow steady flow of relaxing sound, with a less primary beat in the background.
Dude this Chillstep is the shit.

This is way too relaxing to be dubstep, it's Chillstep man!

Most people that are not knowledgeable in underground music consider Chillstep a sub genre of Dubstep. In actuality it is a sub genre of Step.

Dubstep is a fusion of both Dub and Step genres (Hence the name).

Chillstep incorporates many of Steps movements, but adds relaxing undertones and rhythm to it.

Claimed to be a genre to describe dubstep that is softer than the wobbly, dinosaur sex, bro-step that artists started pushing 2007 - 2011. Chillstep isn't a genre of music however - there is nothing major that you can distinguish between chillstep and the dubstep that artists started pushing in the early 2000's when it evolved as a sub-genre from UK-Garage. Chillstep is dubstep and is not recognized by artists as a separate genre at all. In fact the word for dubstep these days is 140 (music at 140 bpm) to avoid childish little genre names for music styles at that particular tempo. Chillstep as opposed to what??? violentstep?? get real.

The genre 'dub' is not a particularly aggressive style of music so why the fuck are people using 'chillstep'. People who use 'Chillstep' don't know fuck all. Them youtube bangas, who spam mixes on youtube and then claim to know shit.
'You should check all the chillstep mixes on youtube, they are so chill!'
'Yeah, I produce chillstep. See my all my fan on facebook'
'Mum says chillstep is better to listen to because it is chill'
