Young ravers around the planet are jumping in all directions
to funky bass lines as Dj’s turn the pacman and Tetris theme songs into chaotic
techno remixes. They are finally experiencing the endless number of electric
musical creations that have fueled the fires of an electronic musical
revolution. Yes... Dubstep!
Dubstep is an old style of electronic music that has just
recently became quite the rave. It is composed by using polyphonic tones and
pitches. Most Dubstep is sampled from existing songs and typically if there is
a song out, there are dustup remixes to the track.
The genre has been around since appromiatly1999 when drum
and bass instrumentals first emerged into the electronic music community. One cannot
really say where the genre was birthed because it was a global movement that
involved a lot of different people making different drum and bass beats and
collaborating to make a blend that eventually emerged.
The genre has its own unique style of dancing called
"Dubstep free styling". This is where B-boys and girls will freestyle
dance to a Dustup song of their preference. It is a mixture of flexing,
krumping and popping. A Dubstep song should never just be heard, it should be
felt as well. So make sure you have your subwoofers turned all the way up to
get a full experience. Dubstep shows how deep bass and melodic electronic waves
in the music can brew excitement.
“The purpose of dustup is to touch the listener's heart and
get them moving, even if it is just a head nod.” said Dubstep DJ pioneer
Digital Mystikz in a recent interview.
Many of today’s musical pioneers and moguls including Kanye
west, Machine Gun Kelly and Tyga have used sampled Dubstep songs as
instrumentals for their hits. Dubstep has even crept its way onto BET, where DJ
AraabMuzik performed live for the second annual Rip the Runway Fashion Show.
“I loved DJ ArrabMuzik! I am glad that dubstep is entering
into the field main stream music with such a strong presence that is well
received.” said dubstep listener and Howard University student, Candace
Laurence, in an interview after BET Rip the Runway Fashion Show.
Dubstep is colliding with all categories of music and with
its diverse alterations of sound and music type, it is sure to more than sweep
the world as it becomes a pestilence for other genres to compete with.
Interested in the genre? World favorites would include DJ's
such as: Skrillex (performed at time square for the dropping of the ball),
Doctor DJ Nero, Rusko, Flux Pavillion, DJ Fresh, Cookie Monsta, and of course
one of the key pioneers, Skream.
It was such a beautiful day today in Washington, DC. I decided to use the lighting to my advantage and showcase my spring/summer lip colors. I also had an amazing cupcake from Crumbs. Everyone should have one, it will make your day! Enjoy!
The looks of the week for this past week blew me away. There are some people (or their stylist rather) that are really talking on this spring 2012 by the horns. I love the color blocking I see and the pairing of prints. I am so excited for spring!
Solonge Knowles. I absolutely love this. I love the prints. I lover her hair an lip color. She gets the Glamour Award this week!
I LOVE this print dress Sara Hyland has on. Kim Kardashian is rocking these neon Jeans!
Both outfits are very much my style and I must have them in my closet!
Good morning everyone!
I just wanted to highlight some of my favorite pieces from Liebeskind Berlin's New Collection. I really am starting to take a great interest in belts and of course handbags are a must. Go to their website for pricing. Amazing collection!
