Dubstep (9)

compounding; noun
A genre of music with tightly coiled and overwhelming bass lines. Very electronic.
 
Dubstep was first introduced very recently, mainly to the college party scene. As a combination of dub (as in instrumental dub remixes) and step (as in a type of dance), dubstep became known as a very specific type of electronic music with a large bass drop in the middle. The term “dubstep” is acceptable because like many other forms of music-infused words, it ends in -step, signifying the importance of dance in the genre.
Etymology : Compounding of dub and step to form a new genre of music
