YouTuber Makes Dubstep Track With Modem Sounds: Do You Like Dubstep Music?

Dubstep. You either love it, hate it -- or haven't ever heard of it. US fans of the electronic dance music genre most likely listen to brostep, a sub genre influenced by heavy metal and championed by Skrillex. Skeptics are unimpressed with brostep/dubstep music and many have jokingly claimed that the "music" sounds like a dial-up modem on steroids.

Now, a YouTube video has emerged featuring a dubstep song made only out of noises from a modem, proving the point that it does sound strikingly similar. Check out the video below and fast forward to the 12-minute mark if you want to hear the finished product.

I myself am a fan (albeit a new one) and am looking forward to seeing Skrillex in a couple weeks, whether or not his songs sound like a modem. Do you like dubstep music?

    it's ok; I don't seek out the music but sometimes I like what I hear. It reminds me of the electronica/trance stuff I listened to in high school.

    Every Dubstep song I have encountered - 30 seconds of a normal song, then 2 minutes of movie sound effects.

    I'm torn on this issue because I think dubstep is crappy when sober, but with the right chemicals, Dubstep is awwwwwesome. (That being said, don't ever ever do drugs!)

    When most people think of "dubstep" they think of this stupid noise that sounds like machines having sex or whatever... No. That is NOT dubstep, and it is also not music. I have a feeling that if the majority of people here knew what actual dubstep was, they would say they like it.

    Personally, I think it tends to get annoying after a while, and gives me a headache..

    And I generally like most music, except for the metal groups...can't stand the headbanging and screaming....

    Dubstep may be the bastard stepchild of electro EDM.

    However, it does work well as a sound effect for songs.

    Not really a fan of this genre of music; which might come across as odd to some who know me, since I'm a huge fan of electronica. I do like the dubstep remixes of Zelda, by Ephixa, however.
