There's No Dubstep Without The Drum


Drums and rhythms of any type are the foundation of electronic dance sounds (EDM) - especially when you're talking about dubstep. Taking into account dubstep's roots in drum and bass of the middle of the 90s, it's not strange that dubstep drums feature some of the craziest bone-shaking sound effects in EDM.

The Evolution of EDM

EDM superstar Kaskade rocks the crowd.

Trade your glow sticks for some actual knowledge, candy kids.

Though there are candy kids everywhere claiming to be devoted lovers of drum and bass, few know what they are actually talking about.  Electronic Dance Music has just become a phenomenon to the mainstream music loves throughout the United States.  To them a rave entails buying a ticket online, putting on neon and yelling PLUR (Peace, Love, Unity, Respect) for the entire world to hear.  This is not the true essence of a musical form that took decades to create.  For the true lovers of electro, the overly sampled mainstream radio hits are truly a disgrace.

Hot Young Girls - Little Lion Man

This is a beautiful piece of chillstep, didn't pay too much attention to Hot Young Girls but will now!

EnrightBetas - Waiting So Long

[Dubstep Artist] DJ Fuck The Cops

Is Dubstep Real Music And If So Why All The Haters?



Most people would agree on a very loose definition of music involving sounds and silence, the audio representation of emotion or feeling, and maybe that it is something that moves people. There is obviously some grey area in this definition as feelings and emotions can be a matter of opinion. But if every fan of dubstep believes this all to be true, why is there still so much controversy about the validity of dubstep as a musical genre?

Since then he may have reached a million, his music is really just that good. If you're going to stay ahead of the bandwagon on this these tracks are essential for any Protohype fan:

Pokemon Dubstep

I Choose You by Protohype on Grooveshark

What is Melodic Dubstep and why would I like it?



If you ever found yourself thinking "traditional" dubstep is too harsh, or without a soul, it's probably because you haven't found melodic dubstep. Melodic dubstep is a subgenre of dubstep that sounds exactly how it sounds, don't mind the pun. Rolling melodies, harmonious vocals and hooks ride on a bassline that usually feautures a pattern not as unpredictable as regular old dubstep. Basically this can be like dubstep with training wheels, or just a different flavor of when you're in the mood for something a little less skull-exploding.

Knick Knack - Dead Jester

More dubstep. Interesting beat what do you think? Download it for free here.


Kicks N Licks


Kicks n Licks

They are a mixture of glitch hop, dubstep, and bass music.

California production duo Kicks n Licks is blowing ears off once again with the remix of JJAMZ's HeartBeat... enough to make any hater of the original a convert immediately after the drop. California was released about two weeks ago and is chill but still hard hitting, about 45 seconds in you're bopping without realizing it, it would probably sound ridiculous with a four wheel vehicle wrapped around it. Infusion is just downright orgasmic...I can go on forever, really. Keep reading to taste the sound.

Just listen to the tracks mentioned and more from the duo below:

(Best Breaking Bad Song Ever) Knife Party - Bonfire (Original Mix)

If you're a Breaking Bad fan, and we know you are, then you heard Knife Party's crazy song Bonfire being featured in the episode. No spoilers here though! We're just here to talk about the music.

 Great sample, eargasmic bassline, a general booty-shake-inducer. Dubstep is becoming more and more prevalent in mainstream media, Breaking Bad is just one example of this. From commercials to sitcoms to games it seems everyone is ready for a breath of fresh new computerized air in the music universe.

Knife Party - Centipede (NEW Official Video)

Some hard hitting dubstep for your ears. A pleasently surprising drop to say the least. They call it seizure music for a reason.


(New Korn 3D Video) Should Korn Stick With Their New Dubstep Style?

Remember last year when Korn decided to  go dubstep? Korn and Skrillex, nobody would of guessed that collaboration, but it worked. Their album 'The Path Of Totatality' was released last December and produced almost entirely by dubstep producers, but it wasn't without it's costs. There is a sharp line between fans and haters of the EP, with Korn traditionalist claiming the band betrayed their true fans by making "robot sex music". Those who are fans of dubstep however realize that dubstep is one of the genres that will have a permanent stay in the future of music, and believe Korn should be encouraged and supported for taking notice of our precious music style and adapting to it. We need more artists like this!

Too often the old-heads force the rest of the population to slow down growth and development because of ignorance and prejudice. View the ignorance and wisdom present in the two comments from YouTube below for Korn's "Get Up" 3D music video off their dubstep album.


Support dubstep music and artists to the unique and insanely creative bass drops comin. The new 3D version of Korn's "Get Up" video in question is included below.

How Did House Music Get It's Name?

"If you were a DJ in Chicago, if you wanted to have 'the' records, there was only one place to go and that was Importes. This is where Importes was. People come in, they're looking for 'Warehouse music', and we would put, you know, 'As heard at the Warehouse' or 'As played at the Warehouse', and then eventually we just shortened that down to - because people also just in the vernacular, they started saying 'yeah, what's up with that 'House music' - now at this time they were talkin' about the old, old classics, the Salsoul, the Philly classics and such - so we put on the labels for the bins, we'd say 'House music'. And people would start comin' in eventually and just start askin', 'yeah, where's the new House music?'"

Welcome To BreakingBass


BreakingBass is a website dedicated to the spread of electronic music.

What is electronic music?

Electronic music is produced by electronic means, it can be acoustic music that has been electronically manipulated, or music produced with electronic instruments.

In the past electonic music was produced using a variety of equipment, with the 60s came the synthesizer, an electronic instrument still primarily used today.  During the 60s the sequencer was also released. The sequencer allowed the synthesizer to be programmed with a computer, giving freedom to produce electronic music to anybody with access to a PC.

There is a wide variety of genres that fall under the electronic music category, a few examples are : Dubstep, Trip Hop, Techno, Trance, House, Eurodance, Breakbeat, Hardcore, Industrial, and more.

The world transitioned from mail to e-mail, and from books to e-books. The fast approaching future of music is in e-music, or electronic music.

Among the most diverse and complex forms of music, this kind of music differs from music produced with traditional instruments because of the wide range of sounds producable from a single machine. One computer can play any the sound of almost any instrument in existence. The possibilities are endless and the world is still experimenting with the combination of sounds available at our fingertips.

Spread the love of electronically produced music.
