Dubstep

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London in the late 1990s. It is generally characterized by sparse, syncopated rhythmic patterns with bass lines that contain prominent sub-bass frequencies. The style emerged as an offshoot of UK garage, drawing on a lineage of related styles such as 2-step, dub reggae, jungle, broken beat, and grime. In the United Kingdom the origins of the genre can be traced back to the growth of the Jamaican sound system party scene in the early 1980s.

A dubstep remix of the classic "Lost Woods" theme from The Legend Of Zelda. This goes to show just how suited old 8-bit gaming themes are for dubstep beats and drops.

One of the sickest dub steps I've ever heard in my life. So heavy there is no bass drop! Hope you enjoy!
