Instead it's square, undanceable, headbanger rhythms, screeching midrange bass, cheesy EDM leads, and an overall tryhard vibe very typical of "hard music for people who can't take hard music".

Re: what's the difference between dubstep and brostep?

dubstep dosent have to involve wobbles at all.
where as brostep is nothing but wobbles and glitch bassses
Rusko was the originator of brostep with woo boost.
to show my example heres 2 remixes of the same song (la roux in for the kill )
stating my point

Re: what's the difference between dubstep and brostep?

i think a lot of dubstep didn't have lyrics except for some rasta samples or whatnot. most of the brostep that i hear these days has club vocals.

Re: what's the difference between dubstep and brostep?

So do the people that listen to it actually call it brostep ? i thought of it as a kind of derogatory term or something. I can sit and listen to noise for an extended period of time, but i can hardly tolerate being in a room for a few minutes if there's brostep playing. Awful. It's like sonic vomit. I actually liked some of what little of actual dubstep i heard. just something to kind of wind down to and chill. Not sure how they managed to fuck that up so bad. And trap.. arghh whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Re: what's the difference between dubstep and brostep?

Brostep is just about heavy drops with painful mid-range woobles. Dubstep is actual music.

Re: what's the difference between dubstep and brostep?

In as non-biased of a way as I can try to explain it: Dubstep is much more laid back, focuses on sub bass frequencies more, and is generally quieter and often more brooding. Brostep is almost the exact opposite. It focuses heavily on distorted, abrasive, and robotic synths. The music tends to be structured around the "drop".

Basically Brostep is popular and dubstep is not.
