Dubstep Rhythms Are Usually Syncopated And Often Shuffled Or Incorporating Tuplets. The Tempo Is Nearly Always In The Range Of 138-142 Beats Per Minute With A Clap Or Snare Usually Inserted Every Third Beat In A Bar. In Its Early Stages Dubstep Was Often More Percussive With More Influences From 2-Step Drum Patterns. One Characteristic Of Certain Strands Of Dubstep Is The Wobble Bass Where An Extended Bass Note Is Manipulated Rhythmically. This Style Of Bass Is Typically Produced By Using A Low Frequency Oscillator To Manipulate Certain Parameters Of A Synthesizer Such As Volume Distortion Or Filter Cutoff. The Resulting Sound Is A Timbre That Is Punctuated By Rhythmic Variations In Volume Filter Cutoff Or Distortion. This Style Of Bass Is A Driving Factor In Some Variations Of Dubstep Particularly At The More Club-Friendly End Of The Spectrum. Read More On Last.Fm.
