  5. Rusko
  6. Excision
  7. SPL
  8. Pinch
  9. N Type

Biggest Dubstep Songs

Dubstep has loads of genres and each genre has loads of "hits" but sometimes a tune will be so large it will be a hit across the whole spectrum. Here are a few of them:

  • Benga & Coki - Night
  • Skream - Midnight Request Line
  • Joker - Tron
  • Burial - Archangel
  • Excision & Datsik - Swagga
  • Rusko - Hammertime

Suprisingly there hasn't been that many Dubstep Albums over the last few years but my favorites would have to be:

  1. Burial - Untrue
  2. Burial - Burial
  3. Benga - Diary of an Afro Warrior
  4. Pinch - Underwater Dancehall
  5. Skream - Skream!

      True, the face of Dubstep is constantly changing with more and more brilliant artists being discovered every day.

      Sure I think Datsik, Reso, Discotheque, Skrillex... can and should be on the list. However, I could have gone on and on...

      Keep the names coming. I think its great because it will open our ears and keep us informed!

      Rusko hasn't made a good track in god knows how long.

      Skream is OK

      BURIAL IS FUCKING EXCELLENCE

      And Reso is god tier

      skrillex is ok, i like him, but i can practically hear the loops he throws on every track.

      but the tops are seriously this

      16bit

      Burial

      Reso

      Bar9

      Bassnectar

      You people aren't understanding this list. This list is this persons interpretation of the best dub artists out, not who is the newest or most popular, you people need to be a little more open minded and soak up the appreciation for the music this guy is trying to show. If you disagree with his list go to a forum and make your own damn list. Stop complaining, appreciate. I personally agree this list is missing some greats, but is still a bangin list of artists.

      There is no "best" artist.

      But if there was to be the most "creative" artist it would be Borgore.

      He's just brilliant.

      fitz 6 years ago

      yo i gotta say for ME (notice the emphasis on me lol) i love borgore just honestly because he doesn't give a fuck. excision and datsik will always be sick,i like downlink, shekel should be up there though in my opinion, idk i like the pure filth that shekel puts out, the kind that makes you want to slaughter a random family with a rusty wood saw and paint a picture with the blood splatter ;) dubba jonny has a few good tracks, you should check out his ukf tutorial on dubstep and then the vip, but my favorite version is A Brief Tutorial On Vip Production (Vip) its pretty sick, j. rabbit deffineatly has a lot of good mixes. crazy talk is definitely one of my favorites by j. rabbit. flux pavilion has pretty good tracks as well, and diesel is pretty sick, defineatly ove burial, joker is the shit, bassnectar is great too, and i could go on and on like some others have said but here's a list of my favorite (leaving out a lot) songs/mixes (not in order)

      excision- shambhala 2010

      reploid- downlink

      swagga- excision (just a classic)

      southpaw- datsik

      this is not our planet- shekel

      smokin blunts makin cream- shekel

      you cant spell slaughter without laughter- shekel

      slaughter (vip)- shekel (i like shekel so wat dgaf)

      (way too many)- borgore (i like just about everything from borgore so yeah)

      all in- dubba jonny

      A Brief Tutorial On Vip Production (Vip)- dubba jonny

      crazy talk- j.rabbit

      too much sexy- j.rabbit

      somewhere around barstow- j.rabbit- dnb/dubstep (one of my all time favs)

      i cant stop-flux pavilion

      man this list would be soo long if i said them all it would go on for days aha, but i hope u get something from that and that i didn't just waste your time reading this

      sorry if i kinda went off on an idk wat to call it but there ya go :)

      Respect to the dubstep innovators, those who created the genre and continue to innovate. I'm hating all this commercial shit these days. Real dubstep lovers don't listen to trash like borgore, I can handle filth alright, just not tracks that barely constitute music. All these new artists try to better each other by creating the 'flithiest', most screwed up tracks. True dubheads listen to quality dubstep, the sort of dubstep that built from devotion to the genre, not just jumping on the filth bandwagon. Listen to the above artists if you want to hear real, quality dubstep.

      fitz 6 years ago

      @ wig - well i must say that i like borgore. i understand why you wouldn't though, as i used to not like him at all, i thought the same of him as you do but what i like about him is that he has his own style, and he sticks to it and he can make really good just straight dubstep too. i think overall that we have different tastes in dubstep, i do like the filthy shit but i can also usually tell when people just try too hard to make it filthy, and it usually sounds stupid. and borgore, if you really listen to the dubstep aspect of his music he can fuck shit up without even trying. however i really dislike rusko i don't know he just has too many different sounds.

      but i respect your opinion and realize that when it comes to what you like you are never wrong. im just putting in my 2 cents :)

      A few of you know what's up, props to you because of it... This list is bogus, anyone who makes a "top dubstep artist list" without Bassnectar in or at the top of the list, doesn't know crap about dubstep... If it wasn't for him - none of these other artist would be jack. He's the godfather. Seriously... and then to put Skream on the list is ridiculous. they are NOT dubstep (may have a few dubstep like songs, but really, now...)

      If you know about the roots of Dubstep and the artists who have

      Formed the genre then what fault can be found with his list.

      Sorry, but Bassnectar does not have a place on the list if

      Seen in this light. Skream was there from the beginning. Burial is

      an amazing and innovative producer. Plastician in my opinion should

      be on this list. Do your research. True original Dubstep is just that-

      dub-step. Innovation is great but that's why they don't even call Rusko

      Dubstep anymore....because it's not. As it moves into the mainstream

      It will become something that most of today's 'whatever is popular'

      Kids will eat up, while the rest of the true lovers of Dubstep will keep

      bumpin sounds like the DMZ. Peace.

      I'm with Steve, where is Liquid Stranger? His new album is epic.

      Love this page though, maybe the posters list is wrong (or his using the word "best" is wrong), but all the other artists people are listing helped me get some new artists I hadn't heard of (since I'm new to dubstep) like skrillex and downlink. This was my whole point in looking at this page in the first place.

      I saw Chrispy mentioned a few times, if you haven't heard his predator EP mix, I recommend heading to youtube and checking it out.

      I am a DJ since the 80s doing hip hop and now just starting to listen to Dubstep. This stuff is tight as hell. I mixed a couple trax with some Hardstyle/Techno on my last CD and I am now hooked. I plan on playing around with this stuff, but the hardcore dubstep goes well with hardstyle. I have so much to learn about this. So far I like Datsik & Excision, Caspa & Rusko a lot and a few other artist like Plasticman, etc. I really think it depends on what type of style you like. I like that hard outta space sounds.

      Mt Eden is so underrated. His self titled album contains track after track of well composed dubstep melodies, bass and vocals.

      Favs: - Bat for lashes (Dubstep perfection)

      - Beautiful lies (soothing with an undercurrent of dub)

      for all of you who are true dubstep fans you have to give props to skrillex for making some of the best drops we've heard in a while and he has two albums and has been out for less than a year so its a little early to be putting him up there as top 10 but is certinatly on his way there

      Sorry guys but Skrillex is soo bad, he doesn't have any sub bass in his tracks (it's all midrange bass that sounds like bass on your phones and laptop speakers) and it isn't always about the filth. Yea benga and skream can be a little overrated sometimes but magnetic man are sooo sick, and no one can deny that. Go back to the roots of dubstep people: deeper, darker, dubbier stuff. That's the good shit, digital mystikz n stuff

      ???... 5 years ago

      I agree on a certain level but some should be replaced by Skrillex, Flux pavillion, Mt Eden (Maybe), Chase & Status, Modestep which i have not heard anybody say a word about and definatly Nero.

      These artists for me, are the most know dubstep artists out there and for those saying skrillex shouldn't be put on the list because the amount of songs, Quality not Quantity.

      Some well known and breath taking dubstep tracks:

      Nero-promises (Skrillex remix)

      Skrillex-Ruffneck

      Flux pavilion-Bass cannon

      Chase & status-Blind faith

      And so on...

      anytime people are talking about DUBSTEP I have to see some stupid kids talk about skrillex this skrillex that skrillex is god. maybe of BROSTEP but get real, you cant put skrillex in the same genere as benga, skream, and other true dubstep artists. listening to skrillex is like having someone scream in your face for about an hour and a half. if skrillex is your idea of "the god of dubstep" you really don't know anything about the genre and you are probly 16 years old.

      This thread lost all credibility the second Skrillex appeared on it. Skrillex is NOT dubstep. Deadmau5? Really?!?! And Bassnectar? Yes, he's pumped out some sick tracks, yes he's a dope producer, but he's got his hands in everything. Open your fucking ears! When people are listing Skrillex, Bassnectar and Deadmau5 as top dubstep artists, that just tells me they're clueless teenagers who were at last years Lollapalooza or Coachella.

      All I hear is Skrillex, Doctor P, Flux Pavilion, Cookie Monsta, and many other crappy brostep artists that have completely mindwashed people into thinking that they are dubstep. The author of this article has the right idea, and how can you hate their picks, the ones who have CREATED the genre?

      By the way, my reccomendation for the list would be Distance.

      I'm amazed as to how many people rate Skrillex so highly, I personally do enjoy some of his music but I wouldn't put him on the list. Deadmau5, whoever said him, is not dubstep whatsoever. I think Adventure club (although they do some chillstep aswell) should be up there and Arion, Gemini, Nero and Jakwob. I do agree with most on the list though :)

      HOW HAS NOBODY EVEN HEARD OF TOMBA!!!!!!?????????? yes, I've read through most of these and there are a lot of good suggestions, but look up Tomba. he will blow your mind and actually uses more than just blurp! sounds (borgore & shekel *ahem* ). these are my favorite dubtep/electronic/ dance (because of mainstream "dubstep" artists like skrillex & bassnectar the genres are blurring) songs:

      choke on coke - tomba

      choke on coke VIP - tomba

      RAW - tomba

      a brief tutorial on VIP production- dubba jonny

      Mumbai (kanedubstep remix) - divkid

      dirty disko - zomboy

      pump it up - zomboy

      kinder surprise - borgore

      five point palm exploding heart technique (tomba remix) - devnik

      android p0rn - kraddy

      crazy talk original mix - j.rabbit

      ohhh nooo - excision

      voodoo - bassnectar

      hebrew hammer VIP - tomba (Srry like half this list is tomba lol)

      Africa VIP - Caspa & rusko

      E.T. (KATFYR remix) - Katy Perry

      Release The Swarm - Bratkilla

      bubblin' in the cut - boreta

      flex (borgore's dubstep mix) - borgore

      UMAD? - xKore

      I.D.G.A.F.O.S. [this isn't really dubstep, but I have to add it] - Dillon Francis

      inspector gadget (dubstep remix) - chrispy

      kablam (kanedubstep remix) - divkid

      lines in wax (ft foreign beggars) - flux pavilion

      master debater - twist & torqux

      Tetris - doctor p

      the island part II (dusk) - pendulum

      high rez - phutureprimitive

      the spell - feed me

      these will either blow your mind (choke on coke or release the swarm) or make you want to dance (mumbai or pump it up).

      ENJOY

      Skrillex *IS* dubstep but not all his songs are.He says in a A LOT of interviews that he makes electronic,dance, and dubstep (Not just dub). But he SHOULD be on the list for when i'm posting this because that list is old and he blew up big this past year. Other than that:

      -12th Planet

      -Doctor P

      -Rusko

      -Knife Party

      -Flux P

      -Skream

      -A Trak

      -Nero

      HOLD ON?! Are you guys all American or 16? Anyone putting half the people you guys are talking about on their list has no real clue about dubstep. also Skream is shit now but back in the days 'dutchflowers' 'midnight request line' and 'monsoon' were running tings...non of this shit wobbly b-lines that's being churned out by "so called" dubstep artists. Dubstep has now been commercialised and watered down like most underground music...SAD TIMES!

      DMZ, LOEFAH, code 9, burial , breakage, kryptic minds All the way. People influenced by the true origins of DUB.

      Skream, Benga, Caspa, Kryptic Minds, Distance, Pinch, Hatcha, Plastician, Coki and Breakage.

      Really people, Chase and Status, Noisia for starters they are more DnB and UKF that's not an artist.

      Dubstep is changing fast, and that's all good, I just don't really like it. I prefer the older, laxed out tunes. I don't start getting angry on YouTube about it :) Who cares if you have been listening to dub longer then the next guy, it doesn't mean shit. Anyone is allowed to listen to it, and like whoever they want! I'll stick with my old beats, and let these young ones spin Skrillex all they want. Peace.

      What's the deal with all the Burial, I just listened to his albums and it sounds more ambient than anything else (well, something downtempo at least). Reminds me of older stuff like Aphex Twin, Leftfield, Massive Attack, Sly & Robbie and the like.

      But almost nothing in common with Datsik, Excision, Feed Me, J.Rabbit, Kill The Noise, Knife Party, Xilent, Zeds Dead, more what I'm into. Maybe all that is Brostep, but then I say Burial is Borestep. It's too bad because Brostep has such a negative connotation, but today's dubstep is way different than anything Skream would call dubstep. Maybe it needs a new name.

      I guess the poster above me just said something similar.

      @iDre Well since your talking about what it should be called, Skream openly says the Uk side of it should be called UK Bass and that's all he calls it.

      any one who used the word "dub" in their comment is officially a 5-star idiot. If your going to show a good dubstep artist, being ignorant enough in the genre to use the word dub completely overrules you.

      Dub is an offshoot of reggae and sounds nothing like skrillex.

      most famous dub artist would be King Tubby look him up and stop using that word out of context

      I try to show an appreciation for all artists as they all have their own style giving each of them a very unique sound... But I am utterly shocked at the lack of mention of NERO... How could anyone forgot them?!?!? These guys are pro, amazing, perfection... Of course I wouldn't say they're better than everyone, because like I said different artists sound differently, you can't compare them the same way you can't compare a specific rap song to a specific rock song... But that doesn't mean Nero isn't AMAZING... Honestly, it makes me wonder what's going to happen to the world when Nero isn't even mentioned in the comments section!
