I remember the first time I listened to dub step, it was so weird, uncommon and creepy. I didn’t like it at first but as time went by, I started to really listening to it and then I got hooked. Dub step is the future, it is so original; it was so unfamiliar to my ears like something I have never heard before.
Dub step is originated in the United Kingdom in the late 90s in England. It is a genre of electronic dance, if you like music such as drum and bass, reggae or broken beat, you would most probably like dub step. Dub step where we are heading, a lot of people are unaware of this music genre, the music we are exposed to in the media, is so narrow minded, it all sounds the same. Dub step is really popular in Europe especially in the UK, but in South Africa is not that popular yet but I think we are getting there.
I have been listening to artists such as Synkro, Congi and Manchester based dub step artist Biome who is really popular in his own right as being one of the best when it comes to dub step. His music is really good and refreshing, it is very deep, it takes you to another world, you get lost on the music, and you feel it with every inch of your body. Dub step is being integrated with a lot of music we listen to today such as kwaito (yes, kwaito), reggae, rock and even hip hop like songs such as Wild for the night by A$ap Rocky featuring dub step artist Skrillex and one of my favorite songs by Skrillex is Make It Burn Dem featuring reggae artist Damien Marley, killa track I tell you.
So lets give Dub Step a chance, it is so unusual, yet so good!

I remember when I was growing up, my older brothers were always playing Hip Hop music around the house, I remember when my older bother went through his Tupac phase wearing all these baggy jeans, oversized T-shirts, and rockin’ his sneakers and bumping to Tupac of course, Biggie, Wu-Tang Clan, Dr. Dre, Ghost Face Killer, Snoop Dogg, Mobb Deep, A Tribe Called Quest, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Busta Rhymes, and Jay Z to name a few. My first preference of music is Hip Hop, I grew up listening to this music and I fell in love with it. Listening to Hip Hop music from back then to now, you can hear the difference and it is sad to see how juvenile the music that we are exposed to. We need to be exposed to good music, whether its Hip Hop, House, Neo Soul, Indie, Dub Step, Kwaito, Reggae, or Rock.
Music is an art form; it’s a medium that is created though sound. It is something that is so simple but it can make you feel so good. It is like an artist painting a picture with words. Music in the 90s was real, the music was not ‘bubble gum’ as it is now in the 21st century, and there was no Nicky Minaj, Lil Wayne, 2 chains, Gucci mane etc. Music back then had substance, and it talked to the people. The music that we are exposed to in the media it is just mediocre, and some of the music of today doesn’t even make sense. There is so much beautiful music that we are unconscious of, there is so much more that our ears need to hear. Like a burst of sound, translated to emotions to your heart, and like the quote says ‘when it hits, you feel no pain’.
But in Hip Hop nowadays, there are still new kats such as Kendrick Lamar, Chuuwee, J. Cole, Dom Kennedy, Joey Bada$$, ScHoolboyQ, A$AP Rocky, Khuli Chana, Curren$y, Hip Hop Panstula, Proverb and Kabomo to name a few that are
pushing good music. Music makes you feel things you never felt before, it hits the right spots, it heals you, it talks to you, it takes you to another place. You can be happy or sad, it is an escape. Music is power, music is life!
