Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music. Its overall sound has been described as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals".
The earliest dubstep releases, which date back to 1999, were darker, more experimental, instrumental dub remixes of 2-step garage tracks attempting to incorporate the funky elements of breakbeat, or the dark elements of drum and bass into 2-step, which featured as B-sides of single releases. In 2001, this and other strains of dark garage music began to be showcased and promoted at London's club night Forward (sometimes also referred to as FWD), which went on to be considerably influential to the development of dubstep. The term "dubstep" in reference to a genre of music began to be used by around 2002, by which time stylistic trends used in creating these remixes started to become more noticeable and distinct from 2-step and grime.

Types Of Dubstep
You can filter out all the dubstep into two big categories.
* You have the 'chiller' dubstep, which sometimes also can be pretty hard.
* But then you have the 'heavy' dubstep which is pretty insane.DuExamples
'Chill' Dubstep: Skream, Benga,...
'Heavy' Dubstep: Datsik, Downlink, Flux Pavilion,
Sometimes it's hard though to classify a song between these two types.
