If you care to google the history of dubstep in more detail please visit the link:
Now to begin with for those of you that have heard Dubstep before and you either love it and are addicted to the wub wub of the basslines, the twisted synths the crazy breaks and looped percussion or simply that electronic robotic feeling you get like youre talking to a space alien or something, or you hate it and the chaos that forces you to adapt or die is just too much for your poor ears to digest..lol
Anyway my point here is this music is from another dimension.. i swear it!
I have been producing urban music for almost 20 years now and i know how to make a song. I know the structure that goes into each track, tweeking sounds, adjusting volumes and getting that perfect mix down of that stone cold beat..
And yes i have experimented with genres ranging from pop, electro, rock, jazz, dnb, hip hop, soul r&b you name it i have probably tried something like it... my point is i just cant get my head around Dubstep beats..
Just when you think you have mastered one technique another ten come along and then another hundred..
The way Dubstep has evolved and sounds today is arguably completely different from the music it came from..
Yes it maintains the dub delayed bassline that make you say.. "oh no he didn't!" that crazy wub wub wub, but todays Dubtsep is in a dimension of its own..
If youre not into electro hard music that turns into something light and decodent and then turns at you and spits electric razor blades right into your face.. then Dubstep probably wont be for you..
But if you are into really creative , far out there ideas..Dubstep is the place to be..
When i listen to Dubstep i swear tracks come on that make me feel like there is a transformer from the left side of the moon , self destructing in some binary code language, knowing the keys of life are simply that.. they "keys" of life... music!
Call it the devils music, the streets music, the apocalypse music or what you may..
But there is a deeeeeep science behind DubStep music... all you can do is sit there starstruck and wrapped in awe of the next creation!
Enjoy!!! (See if you can get all the way to the end!!!!!)
This music truly takes you on journeys of self and inner discovery... give it a chance
