The essence of dubstep

Hi everybody,
I want to raise a question that i think about every now and again
Dubstep has became a genre that is slowly getting more and more popular, as if underground is getting above the ground.
If you look back at history of music, you can see classical music, jazz, blues, rock; Each one has
its own properties, but each one can go to a lot of different directions... rock can be Psy rock like Pink Floyd, could be Alternative like Radiohead and stupid like Blink 182. but it is a wide genre that can go to millions of places, like an age in music.
Do you people see Dubstep as the new age that is rising?
Ive seen dubstep in many forms, ive seen it in chillout, in ambient, in metal (skrillex for example), even old school (Bar 9 ).... is it a beggining of a new age in music history?

I think dubstep is a stepping stone which will expand electronic music as whole into other areas and unknown territories

Re: The essence of dubstep

It already has turned into other stuff, you just need to look for it beyond the usual artists.

Skweee
Wonky
Purple

Are 3 subgenre examples which have mutated aspects of Dubstep like elements into there own approaches.

Dubstep has already been around for about 10 years you know.

Its more like rnb influenced dubstep stuff. Some of it does use the wobble bass, but its often subdued to the back of the mix when it does appear. It's a lot more melodic than most dubstep. It was a phrase originally coined by Joker (I think?) for his music.

and to me, i actually dont see dubstep taking us anywhere into new realms much because it feels like any style/previous genre that you can make fit to 140bpm or do some crazy double/half time squeezing to match, just needs dubstep drums and its dubstep.

that silkie trrack is very nice and its things like that that make me feel different for a short while, but he sounds like skream and that style is old now, people seem to have really taken Nero into their hearts, and theyre the ones i dislike the most purely based on their music. it just makes me think of electro/house with dubstep drums and an AWFUL woman singing over it.

anyway, because it feels to me that dubstep can be anything as long as it has the drums, then it makes it turd to me because it has no defining features other then a wobble (that so many people try to stear clear of) and no real path to follow to evolve and progress. which to me suggests that the lowest common denominators (nero at the head) will control where it goes next unless some young prodigy comes in and revoloutionises some shit.

hope some of that made sense... i can guarantee im wrong anyway lol

Re: The essence of dubstep

Dubstep is bringing the idea of bass into the mainstream as far as I'm concerned. That is good. I like the bass. It's catchy, I like it.

Did you even bother listening to those tracks I posted?

Those tracks sound more divorced from the typical Dubstep type sounds than that Silkie track...which still had the typical wobble in it, even if it did have other elements included. Silkies nice, but for me Silkie still sounds too close to typical Dubstep, just like Joker.
