Dubstep

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music described as tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals. Dubstep’s early roots are in the more experimental releases of UK garage producers, seeking to incorporate elements of drum and bass into the South London-based 2-step garage sound.

    If you go outside Last.fm most people only think about Skrillex and brostep drops when they hear the word dubstep. Maybe my first comment shouldn't go here but that's the truth.

    I see, but I don't completely get your point. Burial is currently probably the most popular dubstep artist on last.fm (as you can see, he is №1 in the top of this tag now and his top track (Archangel) has more plays in weekly charts than Skrillex's top track. Not to mention Burial's popularity in other communities and medias. Do you really think most of these people who condemn dubstep never heard about Burial? I would understand if you'd offer something really new and unknown as opposite to all this Skrillex-like stuff. So why am I writing all this bullshit? Just because this Burial vs Skrillex war is already getting on nerves.

    @CriticalSwitch I respect that you don't like it; my comment just goes to all the completely annoying people saying that dubstep is shit and they only know Skrillex. I just want them to know that there are other things in dubstep.

    Cut the crap please, no one denies that good dubstep exists, but it's definitely not Burial (neither Skrillex, of course). Yes, Burial does have a little bit of decent tracks, but overall he is fucking overhyped, especially in these ubiquitous hipster communities. I'm so damn sick of hearing about how good he is. I just don't see what's so good about transvestite-like annoying voice samples combined with very mediocre lo-fi ambient.
