The earliest dubstep releases date back to 1998 and 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 B-sides of single releases. In 2001, this and other strains of dark garage music began to be showcased and promoted at London's night club Plastic People, at the "Forward" night, 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. It was labels Big Apple, Amunition and Tempa that began circulating the "dubstep" term.
I enjoy dubstep for what it is, however, I completely disagree with anyone who says that dubstep is just noise. If you say that about dubstep, you should be saying that about any other type of music. Dubstep ins a conglomeration of noises that, when put together right, sound absolutely amazing.
Although I argue against the people who say that, I can understand where they are coming from. Because dubstep is almost all made on the computer, some people will say that it "requires no skill," or that it is easy to make. While I like almost any form of dubstep, I do not like Skrillex. Most Skrillex songs sound the same, and are very annoying in my opinion.
Peace. Til' next time.
