August 2011:

Domestic Dubstep has acknowledged this whole dubstep + chore thing since January. DUBVAC came out in February... Now the onslaught of mainstreamers will take over and we'll be forced to curate and catalog rather than compete and converse.

According to Reddit, this dude just got back from the front lines in Afghanistan. This footage was taken after his welcome home party. I don't know if that makes this video any better for readers, but I recently went to a dubstep concert with a marine and all I can say is, dubstep and armed forces go together like peanut butter & jelly (too dated), peas & carrots (Forest Gump? That's weak) Adderall and cigarettes (too druggy)...hmm...well let's just say that I like the pairing and you should too.

Dubstep Infiltrates Movie Trailers

Hollywood Discovers Noises Once Reserved for Household Appliances/Whales

The latest trend in movie trailers is to include this noise that sounds very similar to the types of tones we commonly associate with the Dubstep genre.

Listen to the noise that begins at 1:15 in this Planet of the Apes trailer and you'll hear it:

Or listen to the intro of this trailer:

And to continue with the Transformers/Dubstep, remember that Super Bowl Trailer?

Looking Ahead

In three or four years, basically once the fad is completely played out and totally unoriginal, corporations will begin to catch on...Video game trailers will look like this:

Skrillex will become the most sought after composer for music/tv and his tracks will be featured extensively in trailers for years to come:

Domestic Dubstep Presents: DUBDOG

Dog meets Dubstep in this gritty backyard mashup. With Skrillex and 12th Planet's "Needed Change" accompanying the antics of everyone's favorite chocolate lab, Plato, DUBDOG is icing on the cake that is DUBDOG AFTERNOON.


Why is a blog about dubstep now obsessing over man's best friend? Have we sold out? Is Dubstep over? Did Brostep conquer it? Well, no. It's just that dogs are super domestic and therefore good for our brand. According to Wikipedia, "The dog was the first animal to be domesticated, and has been the most widely kept working, hunting, and companion animal in human history." Also, our marketing intern Steve found out that there's a super high demand for dogs + dubstep. And since dogs are nearly synonymous with domesticity, it's only fair that we feature them in our first ever Saturday Afternoon featurette, aptly titled DUBDOG AFTERNOON.

Rusko Takes on Brostep

East London DJ and Dubstep visionary Rusko is not one for taking the path of least resistance. So his words on the "BroStep" phenomenon do not surprise us here at DD. So what exactly is Brostep?

"Brostep is characterized by the preference of mid-range frequencies over those of the low end, a massive amount of wobble, an aggressive ‘feel’ to the music and an impatient, almost frantic style of delivery. More drum and bass-influenced than dub-influenced (as is the case with dubstep), brostep is tinged with scrapes of heavy metal and has a jumpier, ravey vibe with very little sub-bass weight."

Brostep is apparently "known as hard and horny raw dong music for sweaty males to 'bro out' to." Its  also a bridge for dubstep newbs who want to make the crossover from Warped Tour music to EDM. Its much "more accessible than its predecessor, and is heartily looked down upon by Old School dubstep enthusiasts who regularly fill over a dozen pages on anytime anyone mentions the word brostep, with many heads calling for an outright ban on the New School name. Brostep is viewed as being very American, from the gutter, and ruining dubstep’s reputation by the minute – which it probably is."

Brostep is a total scene. I once heard people trying to argue that Emalkay's infamous "When I Look at You" was brostep. Well it's not at all. It has a slow build up, it's deep, it's emotional and "when you listen to it - it's more than just a "'OMG Bro! Let's dance to this and have fun and Mosh!' kind of track. It's made with a musical mindset rather than that of a raver's. That's what separates brostep from the rest, it's the pop of the dubstep world. It's made to please the masses and give people those few minutes of fun-time while they are out. It's not meant to be thought provoking or emotional or traditionally 'musical.'"

Brosteppers simply appropriate some of the dubstep genre's filthiest tracks and say, "Hey you old school dubsteppers, this is ours, this shit is Brostep, not dubstep." And Dubsteppers will be like, "Hey you bros. This is our music. We take the good and the bad. We don't like the bad shit but it doesn't mean we're going to consider it another entirely separate genre. Brostep is just a separatist movement within our genre that demands innovation through speed and tone."And then Brosteppers are like, "Hey I just want to mosh/dance you hippie. Take your nerdy music theory stuff somewhere else."

Do you like Brostep?
Is Dubstep outdated?
Should Domestic Dubstep rebrand itself? Domestic Brostep?
If a bro asked you to dance, would you say yes/no?
