Dubstep trend impacts local music scene

Dubstep has become an increasingly popular music trend over the past decade. Over the past few years, and in the past year specifically, dubstep has found its way into mainstream music.

Dubstep is a style of music that utilizes overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals.

What started out as an underground music scene in South London, United Kingdom has found its way on the American airwaves.

The local music scene has been impacted by dubstep. WKU senior Derek Sabiston has made waves nationally with some of his dubstep remixes.

His remix to Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” has garnered over half a million views on YouTube.
