Ok, well I guess I'm sorry... wait what!?

If you post a thread about dubstep, then I'll give my opinion on it.  if you don't want that then don't post.  Sorry, but I honestly don't care.  It's a terrible genre, and I just can't bring myself to respect it.  That's all.

 It's a terrible genre in YOUR opinion, and YOU can't bring yourself to respect it.

Just because you don't like it doesn't mean that other people shouldn't like it. Other people have their own opinions, and their own tastes in music. I'm sure they don't care if you gave your opinion, it's probably just what you said and the way you said it.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I probably would have messed it up.

Dupstep falls into the same catagory as electronica with me, meaning that it's pretty fun to dance to at parties and stuff, but I'd never stick it on my ipod to listen to. Mainly, cos it all sounds the same and secondly, it sounds a little bit rubbish.

I'm not sure if this counts as Dubstep, but this one's pretty cool.

It's hard to pigeon hole Deadmau5 into a genre but this song and the majority of his other songs you can probably label "progressive house" and get away with it.

As far as dubstep goes, it actually has a pretty interesting history. It originated in London during the late 90s and sounded drastically different than the "brostep" most of you are listening to today.

Dubstep was originally a lot more atmospheric and deeper than it is now, combining influences of dub reggae and 2 step garrage....hence dubstep. Artists like Kode9, (early) Benga and Skream, Digital Mystikz, etc. pioneered and popularized the scene. Look up some of their stuff to hear what it sounded like and how completely different it is from the stuff you guys think is dubstep.

Now I don't know exactly how the sound your listening to now evolved from that but it could be attributed to original dubstep moving away from the underground and gaining some mainstream popularity. People outside of the dubstep scene around the world were hearing about some these guys and their music. Now a few of these artists, like Caspa and Rusko, were incorporating elements closer to what you guys are listening to. From there, other artists started deviating away completely from its original elements (reggae dub and garrage 2 step) and it became something that is altogether different and really only tied together by sharing a similar pace/BPM.   

What you guys are listening to is what original fans of the music call "brostep". No coincidence to the large amount of frat boy types that have taken a likening to it (I remember, before I even heard of the term brostep, I was DJing at this coffee shop and some bro with a thick surfer accent came up to me and was like "can you play some dubbity-dub"...obviously after I found out about brostep, I thought the term was extremely appropriate).

Brostep is a lot more noisy and chaotic, and is more driven by the high pitched synth noises and wobble sound.

Now whether dubstep or brostep is quality music is totally up to the individual. Personally I like both, although I can def see why people hate on brostep, the scene is kind of polluted with people who have gravitated to it for the wrong reasons (i.e just because its the popular new thing or because its JUST SO EFFING HARD IT MELTS MY FACE OFF).

What's important is that you know the history behind it, and that the "dubstep" your listening to now, really is something completely different to what the name once referred to.

Yeah, even Rusko hates the fact that he created the "brostep" trend.

Don't search up the original, you'll get confused unless you watch TomSka.
