Bassnectar explains dubstep

By Beatport News Editors

From Weetabix to Britney Spears, everyone wants a piece of dubstep these days. But where is it going? And with so many mutations moving in so many directions at once, what is it, really?

Bassnectar breaks down dubstep’s place in electronic dance music—in three minutes—from oonce oonce to 2-step to the “ultra dirty spawn of hip-hop.”

What we really want to know: how long until someone remixes the clip? “I’m not a beatboxer,” confesses Bassnectar, after some impromptu boom-chaka-chaka. Some enterprising Abletonizer is certain to turn him into one.
