If you had to pick 1 track to iconify each style of the dubstep genre, what would you choose? I’m interested in looking at dubstep’s roots as well as its development through time. Plus, I always love to find new music so win win.
I use the word style as if you had to create folders or playlists to classify your collection.
I know there is a lot of stigma surrounding dubstep ‘sub-genres’, but i’m more interested in categorising the moods of dubstep rather than declaring what track is of which classification. It’s difficult to put into words to identify moods as it’s so subjective, but thought it might be interesting.
From my own personal experience, and other sources, the most commonly identified ‘moods’ & classifications are as follows:
(Please feel free to add to the list)
- Dark Garage
- UK Funky
- Dub Techno
- Breaks/Break influenced
