I'm asking because they're pretty fun to play along to and I wanted to play to one at a school talent show I have coming up!

Dubstep (/ˈdʌbstɛp/) is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London, England, United Kingdom. The music website Allmusic has described its overall sound as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals."[1]

The earliest dubstep releases date back to 1998, and were usually featured as B-sides of 2-step garage single releases. These tracks were darker, more experimental remixes with less emphasis on vocals, and attempted to incorporate elements of breakbeat and drum and bass into 2-step. In 2001, this and other strains of dark garage music began to be showcased and promoted at London's night club Plastic People, at the "Forward" night (sometimes stylised as FWD>>), which went on to be considerably influential to the development of dubstep. The term "dubstep" in reference to a genre of music began to be used by around 2002 by labels such as Big Apple, Ammunition, and Tempa, by which time stylistic trends used in creating these remixes started to become more noticeable and distinct from 2-step and grime.[2]

it's a type of electronic dance music that came out of London in the late 90s and early 2000s that is a hybrid of 2 step and Dub music with a bit of drum n bass style transformations, bass drops, and affects

most of the stuff that is called dubstep today is not truly dubstep

people like to call the music that Sonny Moore aka "Skrillex" makes , dubstep.......which it really is not

i played dubstep until 2008, but then everyone else heard about it, now i play deep house & 2-step garage

as for a dubstep song to play a long too; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jRVqyVzrsU

if you have some electronic pads you can play it pretty easily

if you aren't quite as proficient then i would recommend these;

I just started working with a DJ that does some Dub Step stuff.
Here's a video from a gig a few weeks ago. It's a remix of T.E.T.R.I.S.

It was added to the set the night before, so this was done with no rehearsals.

Nice work Nick, if I may ask, what had you done to the heads to give that dead sound, or were they triggers?

Thx

I wish I could say it was triggers, because I love the way they turned out.
But... It was a backline kit with shitty old used heads. I think that combined with the mic on the camera gave it that triggered sound.

I did a Lana Del Rey cover with my Vdrums recently, I'll upload and post sometime soon. It was fun to play.
