Dubstep, the much-maligned largely American music form championed by extreme sports fans, dayglo enthusiasts and drunken college students, has provided hilarious fodder for countless memes and incessant EDM vs. music arguments, but now a YouTube user has set the debate to rest.
As many have joked, brostep does sound a lot like a dial-up modem going apesh-t, and without adding drums or any other sounds, YouTube user Muzik4machines has taken that ol' familiar sound and cooked up a perfectly plausible dubstep track in just four hours. Have a listen below, particularly at the 12-minute mark, when the track is heard in all its glory.
"There is no synth and no samples used," Muzik4Machines writes in the video's description. "Even the drums are all based on parts of the modem sound, the bass is pretty clearly shown in the intro from modem buzz to brostep wobble."
Thanks to Spinner for the report.
