Have you ever heard about dubstep? Actually this term was come from dubstep music. It’s kind of electronic dance music from garage music with the characteristic like: sparse, dark mood, half-step and two-step rhythms, an emphasis on sub bass and an average bpm of 140. This music came from south London, England with the first releases date back to 1998. Personally, this music is new for me. The term of dubstep began to be used by around 2002. Dubstep can refer with so many kinds of music, like: hip-hop, roots, jazz, rock, dub, oriental, IDM, d'n'b, 8-bit. It also has its own sounds that come from nowhere else.
