There is no appropriate genre with which to define REZZ. Sure, we music bloggers try to find something fitting by calling her heavier than all known elemental metals or dubstep adjacent or just simply in making (...)
You’re having a tough day. We know what it’s like: woke up on the wrong side of the bed, coffee won’t brew, and you’re running late to work only to find out that you left the light on in your car last night and now the battery (...)
Never have I ever think that one day Ed Sheeran would make me want to hit the replay button. Sure he’s had hit songs that make it onto Billboard 100 and whatnot, but none have quite had that oomph like his recently (...)
Just when I thought my wig couldn’t survive another snatch, Joyner Lucas and Timbaland yank it, drag it across the country and back, soak it in fizz, roll it on the floor, and leave it on my doorstep. Yes, that is (...)
n “What If,” Ryhs Lewis goes on to pose questions that we as humans have been asking ourselves since the existence of the very first failed relationship. “But what if, what if we'd held on for longer? And what if, what (...)
Hot Girl Summer is almost over, and Sad Boy Autumn is coming, everyone! Okay, okay – so maybe I'm getting a little ahead of myself, but I *am* incredibly hyped for Bon Iver to release his fourth album i,i this fall. Justin Vernon isn't the only artist with new (...)

Chillstep 

One variant of chill music that is actually a genre in and of itself is 'chillstep.' Beginning in 2009, chillstep is a sub-genre of dubstep, toning down the bassy machismo of American dubstep and fusing aspects of more atmospheric genres, like Future Garage and Liquid Funk. 

Of course, anyone who listens to non-American styles of dubstep realize its European counterparts were much lighter and more graceful, more romantic, even seductive. In a way, chillstep is just bringing that aspect to the forefront. This makes chillstep more suitable for your bedroom mixtapes, for the 'chill' part of 'Netflix and Chill,' which is, no doubt, what a lot of the genre is alluding to. 

Chillstep is a breath of fresh air for those who love dance music but get burned out on constant low frequencies and blaring volumes. Much like the best love, the best dance music can be slow, subtle, delicate, and nuanced. It just makes it that much more satisfying when the climax comes.
