A picture of me and the side of my lovely sons head.
P.S. I crocheted his beanie!
He is so good at NOT getting pics with me… arrggghhh (my angry pirate jargon).
So, the last couple months or so, he has introduced me to a new form of music called Dubstep. At first I was like, “Is it a dance, or is it a style of music”. I know it is music, but there is also a certain style of dance that goes with it as you can see in the first video listed below. Gah, I wish I could dance. 😉 What I can tell you is that it is a genre of electric dance music, though it is much slower tempo-ed than Techno. I was a fan of Techno for a while, back in the day and this music reminds me of it, only “softer” if that makes sense. They do a-lot of remixes Dubstep style. I love the changing of the beats and find the music a bit soothing. I have found conflicting information about the BPM of Dubstep music. Some say it is 70BPM and others say 140BPM. Read a little about it in this forum if you like.
One characteristic of certain strands of dubstep is the wobble bass, where an extended bass note is manipulated rhythmically.~ Wikipedia.
My favorite song that has been remixed into Dubstep is Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People.. Check it out.
This is how my son and I have been bonding lately… he is more the silent type with me (like his Dad, lol) but he loves to show me new music in this genre…and I LOVE watching him dance to it. 🙂
Here is the vid.
For me it is music I could veg with… or trip with, but I don’t do drugs so I will stick with vegging. 😉
Hope you check out these videos, even if just for a second. I wanted to share these songs with you along with my bonding experience with my son. He ROCKS. ♥ We don’t talk for hours, instead he shows me music, games, and hilariously crude funny stuff. He is very good at getting you by saying “That’s what she said” after you say something it would pertain to…so I have to watch my mouth around him. LOL
