Dubstep. We’ve all heard the word, we know it’s got something to do with music, but what exactly is it? Dubstep is essentially an electronic music sub-genre that originated out of South East London in the late 90′s. It combine heavy bass lines with down-tempo beats and a tad of reggae mixed in. These days, everyone from La Roux, Radiohead, and Snoop Dogg to Rihanna, Kesha, and Britney Spears employ dubstep producers to influence their sound.
Jared Palomar, a member of the rock-alt band Augustana, has posted some of his favorite dubstep mixes, including 50 Cent, Steve Aoki, and DiscoTech online. Check them out for free HERE.
