Dubstep is a type of techno from the 1970's in America with some Drum and Bass from Cuba. Therefore, I believe Dubstep is a type of Music. First Round is for acceptance.

Con

My opponent stated that Dubstep is a type of music from the 1970s in america, he also stated that it included some drum and base from cuba. Dubstep as defined by the Apple online dictionary is "fast paced dance music with electronic effects"

first i would like to state that the music defined by my opponent is Salsa or Latino, not dubstep.
i will wait for the next round to attack the statement "Dubstep is music"
Debate Round No. 1

OK, my opponent must be a weak minded kid who is probably 8 yrs. old. Drum and Bass is the classic drums. And techno is from the 70's. How could that make it Salsa.

Secondly, Dubstep is considered dance music on ITunes. So he is correct in saying it's Dance. However, Dubstep is the music that is sweeping over today's teenagers and young adults.

Therefore, Dubstep is a type of music!

First off i would like to say "thank you" to my opponent for the lovely comment on how i must be, as he put it "my opponent must be a weak minded kid who is probably 8 yrs. old" i would like to say that age is of no matter as long as one has the proper sources to back up his/ her claim and so far you have shown no source on the topic while i have given one. My opponent is not showing any proof on the matter so i believe that i have one with the statement saying "no dubstep is not a type of music"

Dubstep, in the musical world, is considered to be a remixed sub-genre of a sub-genre of and actual genre. Dubstep gets some sounds from the genre of electronic and more specifically UK Garage (which is a sub-genre of electronic) and 2-Step (another sub-genre of electronic) and combining the two and remixing them means the chart flows like this.
Electronic--->UK Garage--->2-Step--->Dubstep
Back to the original question of "Is Dubstep a type of music?" although unimportant....Yes it is a type of music.

Reasons for voting decision: Con's own definition stated that Dubstep was music, essentially a concession of the debate. Pro, I wish I could dock you more points for that insult, but given what happened in the round, you win this one. Not that your argument was any good - I didn't see anything in the way of a definition of what music was - but you got lucky.

Reasons for voting decision: In Round 1, Con used the apple dictionary to define Dubstep as "music," which is essentially forfeiting the debate. The weak-minded eight-year-old comment was unnecessary, and for that I give conduct to Con. Not much else to put in an RFD for a two-round debate with no more than a paragraph per argument. Do be dears and elaborate a little more next time.
