Though it originated in London during the late 1990s, dubstep has become one of the biggest subgenre of dance music. Taking elements of genres like reggae, dub, grime, drum and bass, 2-step garage and breakstep, dubstep became wildly popular at the end of the 2000s and has come to incorporate heavy metal and electro house. Dubstep artists generally build up a song before a huge bass drop that usually sends fans into a frenzy. Good dubstep music has appealed to fans across ages and demographics, all of whom unite behind their favorite dubstep artists and the best dubstep DJs are among the most popular musicians in the world today.
