Anyway, I appreciate your thoughtful reply and just want to say that I hope I didn't offend anyone!
I just find the admittedly limited amount of dubstep that I've heard to be quite samey, unimaginative and a bit crude in production.
If you can be bothered, hit me up with what you think I might like. I'd like to hear something well thought out and produced, that has some subtlety and scale to it! I'll most probably listen on my HE400s or my new NAD VISO HP50s.
Take it easy!
Very cool man, very few people (especially on the interwebz) are willing to admit they posted too soon or willing to look at someone else's point of view! Much respect.
Here's a few to get you started that I think are very friendly to someone new to the genre. And BTW, I used to HATE dubstep as well. I do mean hate. It's grown to become one of my favorite genres. I recommend sticking to Liquid Dub and Liquid DnB starting off so you realize Dubstep isn't as harsh as you might think it is. Then once you get used to the style and the subbass you might find yourself yearning for more. Or you might find you just flat out don't like it all but much respect to you for giving it a try.
Liquid Dub / Ambient (in other words, the dubstep "wub" isn't as harsh and far more subtle)
One of my favorites of all time...
Dubstep / Melodic Dub
Seven Lions is probably my favorite but since someone already posted Velvetine here is one I haven't seen posted here or in the big EDM thread. The dubstep in this one is more pronounced but it doesn't rely on it for most of the song.
Club Banger Dubstep
Dubstep (with a dark ambient twist)
Pure Dubstep ...and pure evil on good headphones where the whipping sounds like it is whipping my brain, not so good with PC speakers
Personally I think it is easier to adjust to Dubstep with Liquid Dub and Liquid DnB.
Sorry to the OP for posting DnB in a Dub thread but my reasons are above. Sorry :(
