Darkstep is a subgenre of DnB that fuses elements of Darkcore with uptempo breakbeats and ambient noises, similar to those characteristic of Neurofunk. Darkstep music is typically composed in a chromatic scale. The amen break, the firefight break, and other breakbeat samples feature prominently. Darkstep comes from Techstep. Whereas Neurofunk (which also come from Techstep) relies on science fiction soundscape and really clean production, Darkstep bring back elements of Darkcore like horror movie soundtrack or vocal snippets, overdistorded Techstep basslines and industrial soundscape.
