This article will discuss the seven best Dubstep Sample Packs of 2022 and a free sample pack as a bonus.
Dubstep emerged in the early 2000s, originally from South London underground clubs, and it’s recognized by its signature syncopated rhythms of growly, wobbly, and distorted synth lines, combined with the heavy movement of subs-heavy bass lines.
The genre appeared as an off-shoot of UK Garage and is built upon Jamaican genres like Reggae, Jungle, Grime, and Backbeat. Its dark undertones and aggressive & heavy sonic scapes made it famous worldwide, and today it’s one of the most prominent music genres.
It made its way out of underground clubs to mainstream popularity with DJs/producers like Skrillex, Flux Pavilion, Bassnectar, and more, but many of its derivative styles are still played in sound systems and garage-based local parties. So with that introduction, let’s discuss some great sample packs of the genre.
