I'm looking for some nice laid-back ChillStep tunes that DO NOT HAVE BROSTEP motifs. I like the Downtempo-ish and Dubstep-ish type of stuff. Wobbles and slow tempo is cool, and of course the heavy bass. Any ideas?
I find the ChillStep genre most gratifying when it's done well.
ChillStep is typically about 60-70 BPM and very slow with very deep and smooth and full bass. With dubstep style snares and it's like if ambient and old school dubstep had a baby. It usually has wobbles and sometimes there's a lead female vocalist. Some of the samples have reverb and it's usually very spacious in terms of production. There's usually some syncopation within the instruments so it's not just boring, if it was sped up, you could dance to it, but it's designed to be slow and deep and cinematic and epic. I'll try to post some examples if I find some.
This has some sorta ChillStep stuff, but I'm wanting to know actual bands:
Is that like Rameses B type stuff? Honestly, the best way to do genre diving is to just pick a solid artist and follow the rabbit hole on Sporify, Pandora, Last.FM, etc. You can even tag-search on Last.FM to locate artists under even the weirdest tags (you know, like chillstep )
