Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.7Dubstep is a new genre within electronic dance music. The best way to recognize a dubstep track or mix is by the reverberating subbass that is present in most productions. The subbass is reverberated at different speeds to give a sense of movement and insistence. The tracks are typically higher in BPM, ranging between 138 and 142 typically. The style does not favor fourtothefloor beats, instead relying on spaced, syncopated percussion that the listener typically adds their own mental metronome to. Recent incarnations of the genre have found life through dubstep remixes of popular artists like La Roux and Lady Gaga. Newer artists such as Nero incorporate dubstep into their drum and bass and layering it with new vocals to create a more accessible sound. Most recently, singer Britney Spears has tapped into this rising trend in her song "Hold It Against Me," that features the subbass frequencies and syncopated beats during the bridge segment.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually, its an experiment. i forgot by who, but he created a smooth beat then made the "drop" to see what it would do. it was named the drop because it induced seizures and everyone would drop.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@timo86m i did the research cuz it was bothering me. Born with an IQ eventually tested at 186, Skrillex is oft called the "mad scientist" of electronica. At only ten years of age, Skrillex discovered taht by playing peaceful, relaxing music followed by a deep bass not, he could cause people to instantly have seizures. Skrillex eventually named the note that causes seizures "The Drop" because his friend would drop on the floor when he tested the music. Being bornt he son of a nuclear physicist and granddaughter of Madame Curry, Skrillex used his parents labs to experiment on the blend of seizure inducing sounds he eventually named "Dubstep" Thank u and goodnight ^_^ lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Dubstep is a nontraditional form of music form that erupted from the underground music scene. Just think of Hip Hop, Rap, and Techno. On the other hand, you have traditional forms of music, such as Opera, and R&B. Specifically, Dubstep is a mix of Grime, Techno, Rave, Electro, and Randomness.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Its a series of electrical sounds put together in a rhythmic fashion. Many other genres of music use electrical sounds without even realizing it. There is no such thing as a genre of music that "isnt music". I suggest you open your mind a little bit.
