Christian Dubstep Is Kind Of a Big Deal
Brostep, complextro, gutterwomp, smegmastep – whatever Americans are calling it these days, it’s patently clear that dubstep isn’t going to stop expanding into fresh sub-genres any time soon. Every time critics get ready to write it off as 2-step’s stillborn child, someone finds a new sound to paste over with the sweet melody of chainsaws attempting auto-fellatio, and a resurrection occurs. That sound could be literally anything: a quote from Snatch, a conversation about the dangers of mephedrone, a dude asking where his monkey went – it doesn’t matter. It’s this simple formula that makes dubstep such a rich and fertile genre. It also made it inevitable that, at some point, someone was going to add wub-wubs to The Bible.
Nay, the Lord has spoken, and he has done so through womps. I didn’t want to miss the rise of a hot new genre like I did with electro-swing, so I thought I’d get in early and review the best Christian dubstep albums before any other music critic. Hallelujah!

His album Triune is a reference to the Holy Trinity, and his name (pronounced “Reza”) is the Spanish word for “pray”. In his own words: “In this EP I created a reggae sub-bass flow of beats that invites you to have a chill yet aggressive way of worshiping Jesus through dance and music.”
