on my boombox: bassnectar explains dubstep in under three minutes

5 Jan

As a self-proclaimed bass head since maaaybe summer 2010, I have often fielded the simple but dreaded question: “so what IS dubstep, really?” I’m so happy that now, instead of muttering a wikipedia-level explanation, running away, and shouting “JUST LISTEN TO BASSNECTAR, IT’LL ALL MAKE SENSE”… I can now point to this video for a consice, intelligent explanation.

After watching, feel good about the fact that you kinda understand the mechanics of the down and dirty bass drop that’s melting your face during this oldie but goodie: “Yes,” Bassnectar and Datsik.
