The Definition of Dubstep (Sourced from Facebook)

Fry Dubstep The Definition of Dubstep (Sourced from Facebook)Skrillex is coming to South Africa in the near future. He’s about the only Dubstep artist that I know of and I know how Dubstep sounds, but I still don’t know how exactly to describe it. I guess I could call it “Noise”, but I know there are tons of people out there who will not agree with this description.

There are tons of Dubstep jokes circling cyberspace nowadays and some of them involve CD’s, printers, dialup-modems and other absolute 1980’s and 1990’s gadgets. I’ve included a few Dubstep Memes in this post to give you a few examples.

Today I asked my friends of Facebook for their definitions of Dubstep. This is what they had to say.

“According to Wikipedia ‘Tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals.'”  Ray Watson

“The noise created when Autobots mate..” Kobus Van Rooyen

“Noise with no rhythm” Louisa Steyl

“Wub Wub” Kevin Goss-Ross

” The imitation of the sound of the conversation I have with you, Henno, mostly after 1 AM.” Arne Dunckers

“Noise produced by a DJ having an epileptic fit while suffering from narcolepsy, ADD, and heart palpitations from all the Red Bull and tequila’s.” Tyron Bernard Long

“Its basically a combination of T-rex’s flying F18 hornets, and psychedelic glass dolphin blowing” Duncan Biznaus Bayne

“Sounds like your brain having an orgasm. Braingasm = wubwubwub” Bernard Steyn

“Scratch a nail down the back of a cd…pop it into cd player…du(m)bstep!” Collette Carr

“Umths umts ums brooooooooof bam doop umts kekekekkeegegegege umts boooooom boooom umts” Anestasia Stash Hattingh

“Dubstep is the culmination of all the signficant eras in human history (with the exception of the Ice Age). It’s the Stone Age, the Iron Age and the Industrial Revolution – all hyped up on acid. But it’s kinda feckless like all of France’s attempts at war, and lacks real conviction in itself as a genre. Some might say it’s the sound of the future, but in that future I forsee Dubstep as the sound of constipated robots passing stool.” Menzi Hlongwa

Fuck Yeah Dubstep 350x251 The Definition of Dubstep (Sourced from Facebook)Music that anyone, no matter how inept or physically awkward, can dance to. Music that no one, no matter how open-minded and curious, wants to listen to when they’re not dancing.” Dirk Hanekom

“Dubstep sounds like transformers having a rap battle… Its funny how when people dont like something that allot of others enjoy in life it gets labled as shit or crap” Edwin Token Moses

“Aliens trying to communicate and us horribly misunderstanding and having seizures on dance floors” Johann Venter

“Dubstep: (noun) ‘doef doef’ music played on a faulty record player resulting in the skipping of beats in an irregular manner. Should not be listened to by people who suffer from seizures.” Ruth Baldwin
