Hi there. I don't normally listen to dubstep, but I had to check that guy out when you mentioned him, and from the entire album I only liked one song; "Kill Everybody". The rest are very average, but that one is kinda fun to listen to.

 

I've heard a lot about dubstep though, I'd like to find more of the stuff... preferably something good to see if I can get into it. Do you have any recommendations you could link me?

 

Thanks

Netsky isn't really DubStep...

 

Nero is boss though.

 

Nero

Flux Pavilion

Chasing Shadows

Bassnectar

Feed Me (Though  most of his stuff is ElectroHouse)

Dubba Jonny

Gemini (A little poppy, but still fun)

EPROM

 

Also...What's wrong with Skrillex? The high pitched vocal stuff he does is somewhat annoying, but the songs are high energy and fun to listen to. You can't just start a general thread and say not to mention someone in the genre...Bit unfair, IMO.

 

EDIT: Check out the Electronic music thread (here). You'll probably find quite a few things to your liking.

Some of my favorite artists:

Eskmo

Burial

Bar 9

EPROM (not really dubstep, more like glitch-hop with some dubsteppy elements)

Rusko

Caspa

PANTyRAiD (like EPROM in reverse, dubstep with glitch influences)

Sub Swara

Not sure if he's really considered dubstep, but The Widdler is pretty awesome imo.

 

Some more I like in case anyone is looking for new artists:

Arkist

Beats Antique

DFRNT

Eleven Tigers

Eskmo

iTAL tEK

Kode9 (particularly the album Black Sun)

Nit Grit

Phaeleh

 

Having said that... I don't listen to to dubstep listen very often, but those are the people I typically go to in my library when I'm in the mood for it.

Beats Antique is amazing. I'm not sure if I'd call most of it DubStep, but they have a few songs that definitely are. Saw them live at SXSW a few years back.

Yeah, most of their stuff definitely isn't dubstep, but they have quite a few songs that are and everything else they have is good enough that they were worth mentioning anyway. I saw them at ACL last year and they were incredible. My girlfriend didn't really care for them, but I think thats mainly because she doesn't like that I find the belly dancer so hot.

I'm not a fan of their look either. The whole...steampunky-middle east kind of thing. Great live show, but I enjoyed the music more than the show.

 

Their music is excellent though (well, their ALBUMS...The little EPs and remixes haven't impressed me at all). I need to buy their first album on CD, actually. I like to have physical copies of my favorites.
