Dubstep Music - Top 100 List for 2012

Dubstep Defined- If you are not really familiar with Dubstep music, get ready, because it is starting to make an impact on the charts. Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music is best described as a dark and weird robotic remixing sounding, with overwhelming wobbley bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, and clipped samples.

It is a musical genre that only features occasional vocals, however, in strategic places. Dubstep has become a very popular rising variety of music of late and is crossovering into movie soundtracks, as well as television commericals.

Making Mainsteam Waves – Dubstep and tracks with Dubstep influence are now significantly making their presence felt the Billboard hot 100 charts. This means this brand of music is a genre now making mainstream appeal, whether the undergroud fans like it or not. Back in 2008, another DJ artist as seen above, Deadmau5, saw “Ghosts N Stuff with Rob Swire," reach number-one on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay chart. This year, 2012, marks the first year we really see Dubstep tracks grabbing mainstream attention, with one of its biggest artists, Skrillex, being nominated for five different categories in the Grammies, and actually winning 3 of them.

We topped our list with the big Skrillex crossover track “Bangerang! feat. Sirah” which has topped the national charts for a number of weeks now in March 2012, finding its way onto top 40 pop playlists everywhere. So, here is the Top 100 Dubstep list that I have compiled of the top 100 Dubstep songs by 2012, by looking at multiple fan-favorite lists online.

Don't Place Your Wedding On A Holiday

Face it. Aside from your one Uncle Jerry who farts a lot, and the one cousin Sarah who gets extremely drunk even at communion, for the most part, you really want your all of your friends and family to be able to make to your special day. However, there is one mistake that a lot of party planners seem to make when selecting when the day should take place... AND THAT IS PUTTING THE DATE ON A HOLIDAY.

When you are picking a date to throw a big event like a wedding, one you should approach things with a good business mind. That means, KNOW YOUR COMPETITION.

Yes, at first, itseems like a novel idea; getting married on Christmas Eve, or The Fourth of July, perhaps. Your guests already have off, and it is fun be able to say we are getting married on New Years Eve, or something. However, placing your special day on a date where your guests may already have plans/yearly traditions is usually a really bad idea.

For one, holiday choices sometimes can make some very important people in your lives have to pick between attending either their yearly plan/tradition, or attending your function. This can upset your guests or even you when you see what their decision is. It is a bad position to put people in on both sides. An easy way out of this stress is to pick a day when nothing seems to be happening.

Another reason chosing a holiday for your special day is often not a good idea is you may loose some of the fun people who might have attended that are not all that close to you. That can mean less people you haven't seen in a long time, or even worse, less of a good time overall.

So when selecting a date, think twice before choosing that holiday for your big special day. If you create competion for your event by choosing a bad day from the start, you are only setting yourself up for potential heartache.
