***I have swapped the original audio of Bassnectar talking for the most random audio I could find. Unfortunately the copyright holder of the original audio will not allow this video to use it. Considering I contacted them right at the start and offered them any revenue from this video, and this video served as a giant ad for their content, I find this silly and counterproductive. But they apparently want to stifle even non-commercial creative collaboration (I never made a cent from this video) and resorted to threatening to sue me, so this is the result. Sorry***

Bassnectar laying out the dubstep musical family tree.
My first try making kinetic typography (with some help from prezi).

Lorin (Bassnectar) has said he liked the video, but also added this comment: "This was recorded off the cuff back in 2007. If it was today i'd be more clear about certain points. Also I disagree with some of what i said here, but mostly the main point is that Tempo, Beat Structure, and Sound Design all play a part in defining what a genre is. That said, these days the term "dubstep" seems to mean different things to different people. Id rather not even define 'dubstep' - too inflammatory."
