    Dubstep?!

    I must be a total goon - i hear people talking about 'dubstep' and don't actually know what it is...

    Is it similar to drum & bass?

    All I know about dubstep is Burial. I love him, but I can't say I've really explored the genre. Someone on here posted "people who think they like dubstep, don't actually know what dubstep actually is" the other day. In response to that I'd like to know what they'd consider actual dubstep.

    "Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music. Its overall sound has been described as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals". (Source: Wikipedia)

    Look up artists such as: Nero, Benga, Skream, Rusko, Chase and Status, Netsky..

    Its electronic music but it's quite a slow tempo. Not jumpy like drum and bass. It's more like chillout in tempo
