Molly was everywhere last year. That's not the point of the that kind of music. It's about freedom and having fun. And Horned Gramma... if Rusko played Sasquatch! he would tear the Rumpus Room UP!! Caspa would be sick. Downlink would be sick. Steve Aoki would be out of this world but I know that's not dubstep. Bassnectar would be amazing but unlikely with the announced February show at the Paramount. I would go for Z-Trip and Boys Noize again but I know that's not dubstep either. Nero would be an amazing addition!
I've been listening to a bit of dubstep lately (james blake and mount kimbie mostly) and even though it's good enough I just spend the whole time wishing I was listening to Burial. I understand why there are all these other artists doing similar stuff but what's the point when an artist already perfected the genre?

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South East London. The earliest dubstep releases date back to 1998 and were darker, more experimental, instrumental dub remixes of 2-step garage tracks. Its overall sound has been described as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals".
Does anyone have a good dubstep definition for HG, because I sure can't define It.
Dubstep (dʌbˌstɛp) -noun A term used by rave kids to refer to a specific genre of electronic music that is heavy in bass, because if this world is missing anything, it's specific genres of electronic music. Using the term "dubstep," is more like saying, "I know electronic music, and you don't." If your musical selections includes less than 85% electronic music, you really don't know what dubstep is, and you are old enough to buy beer.
