edit - just saw one article saying that Dubstep originated from South London
Well, Burial has a track titled "South London Boroughs," haha.
I was under the impression that dubstep developed in the UK because of the strong presence of 2-step and garage. Of course, there are the reggae influences, too.
It's interesting how black culture led to hip-hop in the US and (somewhat) to dubstep in the UK.

Yeah @dmgtz96 and black culture in the U.S also created House music too. 2-step/Garage are indeed very British, so I think when Dubstep came along it had enough similarities amongst different scenes to get a lot of appeal quickly.

This video really does a good job of going through all the development quickly and well. Very well done. As shown it came out of UK Garage although D&B always had some impact on that as well.

We re-did our older Dubstep Set from previous years and made it a bit better, it goes over the tracks and changes chronologically. subgenre sets on the bottom (there's still a ways to go with newer stuff like tearout, modern riddim, future riddim, and colour bass). Tough to keep up with it.

The 2000 track from Horseshoe records sounds like legit dubstep, holy crap.
So does "The Judgment" from 2003, about 7:30 mins in.

This YT documentary on Dubstep is so good. Excellent in fact! A brilliant introspective that has a lot of analysis and insight that could be applied across the development of music genres as a whole and the factors contributing to change. The guy who tells the story also has an infectious passion for dubstep, you can really hear the love. Lot of good oldskool tunes and artists suggested, look forward to expanding the knowledge. You will not regret watching this.

Watched all of it a couple days ago. Thats what youtube is for!

Its funny, basically all of the things he talked about concerning the dawnfall and the charecteristics of what he called tear out dubstep can be applied to what happened to trance aswell. Its uncomfortably similar.

Uncomfortable parallels yes, but as someone who came into dubstep right in the middle of the tear-out sound he described I can give the perspective that these bastardized points in a genres history might just be good a thing in the long-run. I never even heard of dubstep before 2007 and then when Casper & Rusko blew up we as friends would spend 2/3 years partying every week at a dub-step night, almost always tear-out style. We loved it, everyone did across the country it was cool to be a part of it. We were the equivalent of someone getting into Trance in 2009 and thinking those sounds are the best and that it didn't even exist before this point. It got boring fast but now 10 years later I still enjoy dubstep and here i am chatting about its history and digging up older records and expanding the knowledge and collection. Its kind of like the perfect gateway into the more serious sounds of that world.

I swear I had responded to this comment.

Anyways, that's pretty much how it goes with hobbies that become popular.

Ok so its not really 'dubstep' dubstep but it has that post dubstep influence
