As a society, it seems like we’ve matured beyond cynically mocking anything related to dubstep. It’s not just music for hopped-up young’uns undulating in front of a DJ with a laptop – by now, I’m willing to bet that everyone’s heard a dubstep song they genuinely love, even if they don’t care to admit it. Done right, the frenetic buildup to a climactic drop, followed by pounding bass drums and chirpy vocal samples, can be just as euphoric as any other genre of music. New-age rhythm game Aaero, coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2017, embraces dubstep as its musical muse, and the zooming gameplay mimics the on-rails shoot-’em-up action of Rez Infinite with a few added twists. What Rez did for techno and electronica, Aaero looks to do for dubstep, which should be all the incentive rhythm game fans need to jump in and lose themselves to the pursuit of high scores in a realm of ill beats.
