#dub step

Top Definition
Basically, old-school dubstep refers to any dubstep that was made before 2010. The sound is extremely different from modern-day dubstep and drew heavy influence from dub, which is a subgenre of reggae that originated in the '60s. An example of old school dubstep would be Burial - Unite. As with dub, playing the music on good audio equipment is critical to enjoying the music because lower-end headphones or speakers will not be able to pick up most of the sounds, which will end up making the music seem extremely barebone and repetitive.
Person 1: What genre is this?
Person 2: This is old-school dubstep. It will probably sound stupid since you're listening to it with apple earbuds.
