    I just "discovered" the "Dubstep" genre... I love it! After I heard "Woo Boost" By Rusko for the first time, I was hooked.

    Does anyone know any really awesome Dubstep songs or artists I should try out?

    Dubstep, as well as other genres of electronica can be great when done properly.

    I'm not a big fan of the genre but there are a handful of artists I enjoy plus I've seen dubstep grow tremendously at music festivals over the past 2 years.

    Dubstep is great, I still don't classify it as club/party music tho. In my years of DJing/Live PA experience dubstep is just too slow to really dance to.

    I get much more of a reaction from the crowd when I drop a DnB track than I do Dubstep. Mixing some dirty wobbly dubstep into a Drum&Bass set sure does spice things up tho!

    bump dis.

    I've just been getting into Dubstep in the past month or so. Originally from out west, but didn't listen to or even know about this great genre until recently. Have been visiting my home of CO and friends in Utah who introduced me.

    So..anyone else listen to Dubstep? If so, who are your favorite artists/what are some of your favorite songs?

    Anyone have good compilation albums to recommend? I've been obsessed with all things GetDarker..

    I love the music, but I really hate the useless talking in much of it.
    I never made a big whoopdedoo about genres, either. Maybe I'm old, but it's all techno in my playlist. I also like rock, country, rap, jazz, and classical.

    I like all of the genres you mentioned as well, and in the past few years have listened extensively to each one.

    Any recommendations for some good Dubstep artists? Recently it's been a lot of Caspa, Rusko, Dj Fresh, Flux Pavillion, Plastician and Chasing Shadows.

    Burial is the best known Dubstep artist for good reason, IMHO. I'd also strongly recommend Hektagon. I'm not keen on the vocals on some of Hektagon's tracks, but overall it's pretty kickin' music.

    @renewed: those are total butcheries of dubstep. OMG! Here's a better one:

    I couldn't agree more. 2011 will see to dubstep being pushed mainstream. It will go downhill from there on.

    Not that I like dubstep much anyway.

    Hmmm.

    Hi RPM Soca, Ska, & other reggae beats, mixed with Acid House hi pitched tones vocals/note ... its been here for a while. I forget the genre name that Dub evolved from but its been here.

    To me the forefathers have been & always will be The Prodigy
    I'm transcending to outer space ... to fiiiiiiind another race.
    amongst many other tracks in their earliest adventures.

    I'm seeing Skrillex tonight, so I'm pretty stoked on that.

    As far as dubstep I would recommend:

    • Robotic Pirate Monkey : I Came as a Rat
    • Skrillex: My Name is Skrillex, Kill Everybody, Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites, Rock 'n' Roll
    • Zeds Dead : White Satin, Eyes on Fire, Journey of a Lifetime
    • Cragga : Mr. Postman
    • Flux Pavilion : Gold Dust, Cracks
    • Eyes : Lights (remix)

    Haha i think its hilarious that all these people have just discovered Dubstep, like someone said above "Welcome to 2007".

    I guess it's different being in the UK, where a lot of music stems from.

    Check that one out, it's on my youtube channel, when we uploaded it, it was on exclusive. Not a bad track. Bit more of a vocal feel Dubstep.

    Well here in the UK I think it's only just beginning to cross into the mainstream; groups like Pendulum are breaking their way into the charts and getting played on commercial radio only now.

    "In Silico" went to #2 in 2008 already - that's hardly "breaking their way into the charts only now". ;)
