As only Benny Benassi can do, the Italian electro DJ drops his track Cinema, which features remixes from Laidback Luke and glitch step dub step phenom Skrillex. The result? Well, DC nightlife obviously loved it!! In fact, even Tiesto dropped this Skrillex remix at DC Armory. Has the genre taken over? We’ll briefly examine below.

Has dub step officially taken over?

Well, it’s been around for about 10 years, being pioneered by guys like Skream, Benga and Artwork. The three of whom happen to make up dub step super group Magnetic Man. Of course, they all molded the genre in their own unique way.

Today dub step can be heard from the UK underground to American top 40 radio due to Rusko’s recent work on the new Britney Spears album.

What does that mean for you?

Well, it means more bass, that’s for sure.

It also means more dub step remixes of your favorite artists, as evidenced by Benny Benassi here. Of course, we saw Laidback Luke spinning more than one dub step track at his last performance at Lima. We also heard Sander van Doorn discussing his attempt to prove that trance and dub step can be artfully combined.

Will it surpass traditional house music in popularity? Probably not.
Is it just a new trend that will quickly die out? Who knows.

Will Glow embrace it and start booking dub step acts? That’s for us to know and you to find out, DC nightlife 🙂
