Nothing moves faster and in more complicated ways than genres of electronic music. Depending on who you talk to, a track can be UK-Funky, or 2-Step, Jungle or DnB. What is stable and easy to track, however, is the incessant stream of awesome music coming from the UK underground. Perhaps the epicenter of cutting edge electronic music, the mature club scene of London serves as a breeding ground for some of the most influential and important steps forward in electronic music to date.
So, where does that leave us? We all know (or think we know) dubstep and its arena rock American counterpart, aptly referred to as "brostep." Started in London by the likes of Skream and Digital Myztiks, dubstep played heavily on themes originating in Jamaican dub, i.e. heavy bass lines and a kind of electronic dissonance. What will be surprising for some American listeners, is that this stuff has been around for more than ten years now! While it has only hit the US in recent years, the English have been mulling over this stuff for a long time at this point. Henceforth, we have entered into post-dubstep, a genre after a genre, the next step after 'step, if you will.
