Top 5 Dubstep artists of 2012
Okay so for you people who are in to EDM (Electronic Dance Music), you more than likely know what Dubstep is....right? If you don't then I think you've been living in a cave for the last 2 - 3 years. Last year Dubstep really started to kick off and become BIG in the mainstream media. I have been on the Dubstep scene since it was an underground sound and have watched it evolve. I'm going to give my personal opinion on the top 5 Dubstep artist for this year.
5. Subliminal Substance - Subliminal Substance is a very interesting producer, I was impressed. If I had to describe Subliminal Substance's sound I would say it's a unique mixture of a lot of EDM genres.
Subliminal Substances Album, well worth a buy!:
So this artist is becoming pretty established at the moment, Their music is very "oriental" sounding from the Xenosphere EP i listened to. The music has some real heavy "filth" sounding basslines spint by clever drum fills and synth breaks.
I don't feel like Omnitica is comparable to many artists the sound is very unique i must admit, clever riffs and very melodic synths. I didn't feel i was being hit by a load of LFO wobbles like most Dubstep.
There isn't amazing amounts available by this artist and i feel his Dubstep tracks are much better than the House tracks on his EP. I found myself listening to their stuff over and over again!
I don't think anyone would regret listening to this stuff.
You can listening to Omnitica on soundcloud here: http://soundcloud.com/omnitica
I couldn't find a website for Omnictica but the stuff is also available on Spofify and iTunes
Zomboy blew me away as soon as i heard his music, there is no way i could leave him out the top 5! My ears instantly got hooked on his party atmospheric sounds. His music consists of well thought out vocal samples, heavy bass and upbeat drum beats. You will definitely hear a sound in his music that makes you want to move!
He currently only has a 4 track EP available which i can find and a few remixes that i found on youtube!
His EP "Game Time" is well worth the listen and certainly wouldn't be a waste of money!
2. Knife Party
So Knife Party have got big REAL FAST! and i was really wondering why they got so big and found out that knife party are the masterminds behind "Pendulum" If you don't know who Pendulum are... You really need to listen to more electronic music!
Knife party is a side project for pendulum and a lot of their music consists of Electro House but they also do some real good Dubstep tunes. Their sound isn't as unique the Pendulum sound is but its definitely a BIG sound, not only in there Dubstep brilliant but so is there house and Drum & Bass.
Okay okay so Skrillex has hit the Dubstep scene and the whole electronic music scene real big over the last year! I feel he has a lot of haters but at the same time a lot of lovers. You might think i'm selling out a big by putting Skrillex number 1 artist but honestly his music is good and does deserve every bit of fame he gets! He change the dubstep movement over the last year massively, he's a talented artists and producer.
I'd find it hard to explain skrillex's sound, its something you really need to have a listen of.
Hell this guy won 3 Grammy Awards in one go already!
You can find his music in most online store!
