Songs are remixed for a variety of reasons:
- to adapt or revise it for radio or nightclub play
- to create a stereo or surround sound version of a song where none was previously available
- to improve the fidelity of an older song for which the original master recording has been lost or degraded
- to alter a song to suit a specific music genre or radio format
- to use some of the same materials, allowing the song to reach a different audience
- to alter a song for artistic purposes.
- to provide additional versions of a song for use as bonus tracks or for a B-side, for example, in times when a CD single might carry a total of 4 tracks
- to create a connection between a smaller artist and a more successful one, as was the case with the chart-topping remix of Brimful of Asha by Cornershop
Remixes should not be confused with edits, which usually involve shortening a final stereo master for marketing or broadcasting purposes. Another distinction should be made between a remix and a cover. A remix song recombines audio pieces from a recording to create an altered version of the song. A cover is a recording of a song that was previously recorded by someone else.
Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London, England. It emerged in the late 1990s as a development within a lineage of related styles such as 2-step garage, broken beat, drum and bass, jungle, dub and reggae. In the UK the origins of the genre can be traced back to the growth of the Jamaican sound system party scene in the early 1980s. The music generally features syncopated drum and percussion patterns with bass lines that contain prominent sub bass frequencies.

The earliest dubstep releases date back to 1998, and were usually featured as B-sides of 2-step garage single releases. These tracks were darker, more experimental remixes with less emphasis on vocals, and attempted to incorporate elements of breakbeat and drum and bass into 2-step. In 2001, this and other strains of dark garage music began to be showcased and promoted at London’s night club Plastic People, at the “Forward” night (sometimes stylised as FWD>>), which went on to be considerably influential to the development of dubstep. The term “dubstep” in reference to a genre of music began to be used by around 2002 by labels such as Big Apple, Ammunition, and Tempa, by which time stylistic trends used in creating these remixes started to become more noticeable and distinct from 2-step and grime.
Bass music is an umbrella term that refers to various styles of music including drum and bass, bassline, dubstep and UK garage among others. The phrase began to be used in response to the blending of sounds between these genres. The key characteristic shared among these genres are an emphasis on basslines, groove and rhythm.
In the United Kingdom, bass music, or UK Bass has had major mainstream success since the late 2000s and early 2010s.

They don’t want to be tagged with it and shouldn’t be tagged with it – that’s not what they’re pushing… When I say ‘UK bass’, it’s what everyone UK is associated with so it would be a lot easier if it was called that.”
Outside of nightclubs, bass music has mainly been promoted and played on web radio stations, the most notable being Rinse.FM, Sub.FM, Rood.FM in the UK, and BassRadio.FM in the US.
