Transcript of Dubstep

Is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London, England
The first samples of dubstep was published in 1998
In 2001, this and other strains of dark garage music began to be showcased and promoted at London's night club Plastic People
The term "dubstep" in reference to a genre of music began to be used by around 2002
A very early supporter of the sound was BBC Radio DJ John Peel, who started playing it from 2003 onwards.
Dubstep started to spread beyond small local scenes in late 2005 and early 2006
Towards the end of the decade the genre started to become more commercially successful in the UK, with more singles and remixes entering the music charts
Dubstep is generally instrumental
Other distinguishing features often found are the use of samples, a propulsive, sparse rhythm, and an almost omnipresent sub-bass
Dubstep rhythms are usually syncopated, and often shuffled or incorporating tuplets
Wobble bass
This style of bass is typically produced by using a low-frequency oscillator to manipulate certain parameters of a synthesizer such as volume, distortion or filter cutoff
This style of bass is a driving factor in some variations of dubstep
