A few days ago we posted about dubstep's infiltration of pop culture in 2011. If you didn't know what dubstep was then and still don't know, or just want to know more, a new video about the structural relationship between different genres of electronic dance music (EDM) might help.
With some help from motion graphics, EDM producer Bassnectar explains broken beat vs. steady beat, hip-hop vs. dancehall, breakbeat vs. drum n bass, and so on, leading up to dubstep - which is half-time breakbeat. I won't worry about explaining it here, since Bassnectar does a nice job in under 3 minutes.
And don't worry about it being too technical: Of dubstep, he says "the beat's like BOWOWOWOWOWOW just like really fucking heavy."
Audio from the motion graphics clip above is taken from the original interview:
