So yeah, dubstep. Thing's blowing up. I like it, but can only take so much. I feel it is one of those sub genres that are limited by what it is (like most electronic sub genres...and reggae). Regardless, the drops bring the hype. When that wobble bass comes in and the shit drops it's like a heavy metal breakdown put through an electronic filter. It is pretty awesome. It's easy to see why dubstep is blowing up.
One of my favorite dubstep songs and drops:
The only thing I don't like about dubstep and most electronic music is the scene. I'm a dive bar guy. A hip hop/rock concert guy. I want to enjoy great music with other people. The whole electronic scene is sort of different. Biggest thing? The drugs. I'm not saying there aren't drugs being used at other genre's concerts, but electronic/dnb/jungle/house/techno/dubstep is just about founded on taking ecstasy. When a crowd thinks the music is inherent in the drug and that the two are mutually exclusive, you get some silly shit. I'm not an "upper" guy so I don't mess with cocaine/ecstasy/molly/etc. because I hate the stimulated UP feeling you have as well as the crash. So me being sober amongst a bunch of white kids wearing pink head bands and tight jeans sweating their ass off do not go together.
Great chill, dubstep song:
