*Dubstep* /ˈdʌbstɛp/ is a genre of electronic dance music that
originated in South London, England. It emerged in the late 1990s as a
development within a lineage of related styles such as 2-step garage,
broken beat, drum and bass jungle, dub, and reggae.^[1] In the UK the
origins of the genre can be traced back to the growth of the Jamaican sound
system party scene in the early 1980s.^[1]^[2] The music generally features
syncopated drum and percussion patterns with bass lines that contain
prominent sub bass frequencies.

The earliest dubstep releases date back to 1998, and were usually featured
as B-sides of 2-step garage single releases. These tracks were darker, more
experimental remixes with less emphasis on vocals, and attempted to
incorporate elements of breakbeat and drum and bass into 2-step. In 2001,
this and other strains of dark garage music began to be showcased and
promoted at London's night club Plastic People, at the "Forward" night
(sometimes stylised as FWD>>), which went on to be considerably influential
to the development of dubstep. The term "dubstep" in reference to a genre
of music began to be used by around 2002 by labels such as Big Apple,
Ammunition, and Tempa, by which time stylistic trends used in creating
these remixes started to become more noticeable and distinct from 2-step
and grime.^[3]

A very early supporter of the sound was BBC Radio 1 DJ
