Sort of a drum n bass - trance hybrid, slower tempo than your usual DnB (140 bpm vs 160) with instrumental intros/breaks/outros and vocals.

Edited to include: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubstep

DnB made more accessible.

Cans of comressed "air" for dusting computers and electronics are available at stores. They seem over priced but I think you can usually get a 2-oack for around 12 bucks. If you only buy them once a year, not so bad I guess.
