The Top Ten

I love this guy. He is the artist that got me into dustep. None of the artists below have nothing on him. Skrillex is magnificent in many ways. Soony Moore thank you for your magic. Your music live on forever in dubstep history. Guy with the comment below is right Skrillex is the KING OF DUBSTEP. Gonna give you a thumbs up.
This guy totally deserves the number 1 spot, he is the one who brought me to dubstep. SKRILLEX IS THE DUBSTEP KING, just like Michael Jackson is the king of pop and Eminem king of hip-hop.
Skrillex is the king of dubstep and always be... He's all songs is awesome.!
[Newest]They are the best besides dubstep

2Knife Party
I will give credit to Skrillex simply because "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" introduced me to the world of dubstep. But the more I explored, searching for bigger and better dubstep, I stumbled upon a website talking about up and coming dubstep producers. Knife Party was on the list, shockingly as number four of five bands, and they recommended Centipede by Knife Party to listen to. Needless to say, that song dramatically blew my mind and they have continued to do so with almost every song they have produced. Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen are absolute musical masterminds. They were when they were in Pendulum, they are now in Knife Party, and they will continue to be hopefully for a while longer. Knife Party for life!
God, I used to hate dubstep, skrillex was just not good. I had a friend who is really into dubstep who showed me centipede, and that's where it started. Some of knife party's best tracks in my opinion are Rage Valley, Unison (knife party remix), bonfire, centipede piledriver feat. Steve aoki, and zoology with skrillex. Needless to say, after you've heard one of knife party's tracks, they are clearly the best out there. No questions asked
Knife Party's songs are good but not better than Flux pavilion's. Knife Party's songs are too busy so that I feel they scratch my brain. But they had a great song that I always listen to it named "Zoology". The most awesome song that I have ever heard of Knife Party... But anyway they are good... It's obvious that Skrillex is the first but in my opinion Knife Party should have been the third after Skrillex and Pavilion...
[Newest]Better than any group!

3Flux Pavilion
I remember I first started listening to dubstep because of these songs in the top twenty on my radio, and Skrillex had been the producer of some songs that I found that had nice rhythms and beats. I started to search pandora for Dubstep, Pendulum (I liked that band also- check out the island part 2), Skrillex, Nero, and a little more. I believe I had come across Flux through the remix of Gold Dust which is so great and I have loved all his other music ever since then. The real track that I could listen to 24/7 is I Can't Stop which is undoubtedly my absolute favorite dubstep track right now along with all of his other music. I say Flux would beat out Skrillex any day. People who voted Skrillex should check out I Can't Stop.
His dubstep is great.
Catchy, nice beat.
But the thing is it needs more flavor.
More variation.
The synths he uses are mostly the same.
It's a few oscillators and probably a saw and a pulse wave and he makes chords.

I love his music though.
Flux Pavilion is much better than Skrillex.
I'm not a Skrillex hater, I listen to his music, too, but Flux Pavilion's dubstep is awesome.
[Newest]He doesn't compare to Skrillex, but he still is very good. Blow the Roof, I can't Stop, and I Still Can't Stop are his best songs in my opinion. His Dubstep is also very unique.

To this day, only Nero has been able to bring out a side to dubstep that has kept me hooked since the first time I heard them. Almost every single one of their tracks has an emotional and uplifting energy that has been replicated by no other.
Nero I think has their own type of music. Revolutionized dubstep!
I love their song "Innocence."
[Newest]Hands down Nero be the hero..

Excision mixes songs to perfection.. he is the only dubstep artist I can actually listen to all his songs... very very few may not be my favorite but I still like them. what I like the most is the filth he brings in songs and also his bass.. he is by far in my opinion the best
Excision is god of dubstep.
Excision makes that Music that Blow your sub' up even if the volume isn't turned on max.
Excision is same as good like skrillex, maybe even better.
[Newest]Dark and Heavy I love it.

He should be in the top 15 at least
Why is this guy in 24th? He did a way better version of bass cannon the the guys in top spot...
This guys talent is greatly overlooked. I salute you zomboy!
[Newest]Probably the best dubstep I have ever heard in my life. not to discredit people like skrillex and whatnot but the inconsistency in their work doesn't hold a candle to the non stop rage that Zomboy can throw together

Bassnectar is like no other. He isn't't just a bunch of random monsters rar rars put together and call it musik. Bassnectar has a style that no other dj could pull off. Listen to ugly ft Amp Live and you'll know what I'm talking about. BASSNECTAR 4LiFE!
Number 6?! Really?! Sorry Skrillex, Flux, but Bassnectar deserves the first spot. Then Knife Party, Excision and Tiesto. Where is Tiesto anyway?
He is what he says he is. Very cool beats and really enjoyable to listen to.

8Doctor P
Doctor P is a genius. He sees other songs in a way no other person does, just listen to some of his remixes (Last Ones Standing, Love Goes Down). Also his original stuff is so different from the others and still is awesomer (big boss, watch out, sweet shop).
I think that this guy is number 4 on the charts.
Man this dude is awesome give him some credit for number one
[Newest]Doctor P is dubstep full stop. the best

I listen to many different artists and producers, but Datsik has always been my favourite. Some of his tracks are immensely well made, and I feel he needs more recognition.
Do you Datsik is more better than Skrillex? It damn sick!
Listen to Datsik - Fully Brown
Then you know it
Datsik is just awesome. He is so simple, yet so complex at the same time. Just drums and wubs. He has also been producing for a longer time than most artists and still going strong. Datsik is awesome!
[Newest]#1 in the world

His remix of Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites is awesome! It's almost as good as the original!
Zedd is a genius
Love the remix of alive by zedd

The Contenders

11Zeds Dead
Zeds Dead creates great songs with great rhythm, I especially like their two songs Eyes on Fire and Out for Blood
Skrillex has nothing on this guy and also Excision. Sonny Moore is very creative and good at what he does, but Zeds Dead's material surpasses Skrillz any day.
Zeds Dead has a sound that no one dusbstep artist have.. he is original and makes no only dubstep music but also other genres.. and he is amazing also on these!
[Newest]Demon gave me love for dubstep

12Pegboard Nerds
Skrillex may have introduced me to the world of dubstep, but Pegboard Nerds made me stay.


Well the list is obviously a popularity contest. The nerds are amazing, just listen to Bassline Kickin or Fire in the Hole
Razor sharp will change your life

13Kill the Noise
One of the best dub step artists out there, definitely deserves to be in the top ten
Kill the noise is one if the heaviest bass monsters ever. Just look at tracks like thumbs up and jump ya body. KTN knows how to combine killer beats with ear shattering bass drops and he does it in a way that no other dubstep artist has shown me yet
This guy should top the list... He's got the best sound in the dubstep category... his EP "Kill Kill Kill" topped all edm chart... His track "BLACK MAGIC" is the best track ever produced by him... he is even good at drum n' bass... This guy should be placed beyond the top ten... !
[Newest]Kill the noise, skrillex, and zomboy all day!

14Feed Me
Feed Me is a musical genius. His songs have changed many things about dubstep, and hopefully her will continue to do so. I also encourage you to listen to One Click Headshot. That song really shows what Feed Me is made of.
Love One CLick Headshot, one of the best!


Deadmau5 on steroids for the win!


15The Glitch Mob

Absolutely awesome, has a great mix of songs with different genres mixed in. With songs like Paradise proving that the band has some strong vocals.
One of my favourite bands. Their music is very mixed, and I simply LOVE the beats. It's actually something I can move to, not just a couple off sounds here and there.
Modestep is the best according to me!
[Newest]First dubstep I heard. Simply awesome

Deadmau5 isn't dubstep... But who cares, he is better than Skrillex. He deserves top be at the top of every list!
Deadmau5 is the beast. His tracks are great and he just recently signed under the same label as Swedish House Mafia and David Guetta. That proves enough about him.
Deadmau5 is just pure gold
[Newest]Deadmau5 is the BOSS and king at dubstep.

The man who INVENTS dubstep gets a #32 spot? Shame, shame.
The Godfather of dub step, genius
He should be in top ten. Exothermic Reaction is very good.

19Chase & Status

20Virtual Riot
Virtual Riot has some supernatural attractiveness in every track he makes. Skrillex brought me into Dubstep. Now Virtual Riot is taking over. This guy is sick!
This guy just does not cease to amaze me with every song he makes. personally I think he should be much higher than 41.
Absolutely amazing! He should #1 on this chart. I don't even know most of those failures that are higher than him here.

I love his signature bass! His stuff is crazy heavy and loud
Just check out this track (Rogue Status) and you'll go xkore crazy...

22Adventure Club
Need your heart :') At par with scary monsters in my opinion. Must listen artist. you will surely not regret for listening to songs like Need your heart, Rise and fall, Gold. Soft dubstep at its best!
Such an incredible sound and feel for every song
Ac is awesome! Love their songs RISE AND FALL!


Savant is love. Savant is life.
A real stand-out in the whole dance/electronica genre, a true musical prodigy
His music is amazing... Simply amazing, he puts so much detail and originalitty in his music its mind blowing, his music is simply deadmau5 level, in other words a creative genius

I don't need to say anything but just download shaolin style (nero rmx)'
Piano tune (VIP) & Bloodbath (original).


27Seven Lions
Still With Me Remix

Best Dubstep Art Ever!
Seven Lions are a game changer, bringing in various styles into a jive form of dubstep.
In my opinion, his remix of Velvetine's The Great Divide is his best work and an absolute chillstep masterpiece. Great song to introduce someone to the world of dubstep along with many others.

How can people not put SCHOOLBOY!? Eargasm every time I listen to them. Listen to Project No-Autotune and you will get a hint of how awesome they are. Then after that listen to Savant. He is the GOD of most dubstep, drumstep, grim, electro house, any house, just listen to him

Not hating, but has anyone realised how most of Rusko's good stuff comes from other artist's remixes. Netsky's remix of Everyday, Sub Focus' version of Hold On & Sigma's remix of Somebody To Love to name a few.
Should be in the top 5. Definitely one of the best to ever live in the world of dubstep. I cannot believe his position is this low. The top should be skream, benga, digital mystiks, rusko, trolley snatcha, caspa, datsik, skrillex and doctor p just to name a few
He should be in the top 5. He created the brostep genre and he included other styles of music into the dub step genre. He I the reason we have the dubstep we have today.

30Swedish House Mafia
I think swedish house mafia makes trance nt dubsteps! But in trance shm is d best!
They're not even dubstep, they're electro house!


Traxione's music is so brilliantly complex. He is a musical genius.
Best dubstep artiist ever! So underrated!
I really don't know who this is

33Benny Benassi
I agree with that. He's not a dubstep artist. He did the lyrics for Cinema, yes... But that song was mixed by skrillex.
Benny benassi has nothing to do with dubstep why is he on this list?

34Stephen Walking
His tracks are awesome!

Worthy of the top 10
Why is my favorite dubstep artist not anywhere near the top ten?


Tristam is a artist that makes music not with his brain, but his heart, I love his music because he makes it with his feelings. and his song with Braken, Tristam & Braken - Flight is the #1 most popular song on monstercat


COME ON GUYS! Don't forget him
His tracks r really good
OP Music from him

38Flutter Rex

39Dillon Francis
He is amazing his music makes the crowd jump and you need to consider money sucks friends rule

40Infected Mushroom
I'm honestly dissapointed this isn't anywhere on the list. These guys are a million more talented and could run circles around skrillex. You want proof? Listen to these songs. Artillery, where do I belong, the pretender, heavyweight.

41Bro Safari
Come on, guys! Don't forget him! Their remix of the Worm is awesome! The Drop isn't dubstep, but it's at the right tempo!

42Tom Reason

43Delta Heavy

44Alex Clare

4512th Planet


47Alex S
I'm so happy he broke away from the bronies. I like his solo stuff so much better.
Very creative producer. His stuff is always fresh and always awesome.
He is awesome. Only he broke from the bronies



50Dub FX

I am very disappointed that Krewella is not even on the list
Their music is just pure awesomeness! Should be at least in the top ten
Krewella is just pure awesomeness! Should be in the top 15 at least
[Newest]Must be on the top 10!

501's remixes of songs are creative, like a personalized style. Check out a fex of %01's remixes and see for yourself.



55Ry Legit
Not well known at all, but check out the music, one of my favorite artists so far and deserves much more attention
What? Why is this guy so low on the list?
Put it deeper, sweety man, double stuff, double kill, lock in, rampage are all good songs

56Tut Tut Child
Dragon Pirates, Power Fracture, and Dance to it are Epic.


Shadowbeatz makes a lot of cool songs. Check out his song " Just one more night" it's epic.
I love shadowbeatz and his brand new songs keep making the shadowbeatz
ShadowBeatz [AKA 'Hadow'] is the man... his music and dubstep will give you eargasm...

He is 1 of the best

Lights is just awesome

He truly deserves a place on top 3. His music isn't just a repetitive bass line, it has substance, it has meaning and message. It makes you shiver, since the mixture between the soft sounds and the hardness of the bass is absolutely perfect.
Has yet to disappoint me, therefore he is one of my favorite artists!

His music is such high quality, always coming out with bangers! Follow you VIP mix, snowblind, blossom, and his remixes!
What?! Why is Au5 so low on the list? Go listen to blossom and thank me later!
Just have a listen to blossom.. ,

63Alvin Risk




Benga and skream invented and then popularized Dubstep whilst still doing their own thing. It is unquestionable that these two are the best ever. People who vote for Skrillex need to listen to real Dubstep, not screechy moonbachore
Benga Created Dubstep (With Skream of course) you Morons!

Their songs are really heavy and all. But they build up to a drop, instead of just dropping it after like 10 seconds. They are extremely underrated.
So so so so good. You guys have to go listen to this artist. Seriously. Any song from "evolution" album is just 👌
Just listen to evolution and you'll understand why I'm disappointing that arkasia isn't in the top 10


70Steve Aoki

71Porter Robinson
His songs take you on a journey that is unforgettable.

72Mt Eden
Mount Eden practically PIONEERED dubstep. The music... It is revolutionary to the genre. you don't know how this isn't 1st, or at least 2nd
Best dubstep artists ever!
Best Dubstep Group ever.

73Ninja Kore
Really good but not may people know them, sick bass drops, they need more attention from the comunity

Ajapai is one of my most favorite dub step composers, and he got me into the dubstep genre. He makes amazing songs with his unnatural sounds.

Bro is like the king, insain drops!


77Teddy Killerz

78Matthew Parker
Consistent level of quality tracks! He's a great artist and the fact that he represents Christ well makes him #1 in my book.
One of the only dubstep guys I know of who doesn't have negative stuff (swear words, gross artwork, etc. ) in his music at all.
He has never disappointed me with his music. It's always fun and creative.

Just listen to the island part 2
Great group but has nothing to do with this list they used to make drum n bass before they split.

80Ben Moon
He has the most underrated orchestra dubstep music, check him out on Youtube.

81Cookie Monsta
Cookie Monsta could force Skrillex to shave off the other half of his head.





86Mizuki's Last Chance


88Camo & Crooked






94Birdy Nam Nam

95Child In Disguise

96Josh Chace
Check out his youtube channel his music is sick.

Not famous yet but check out his youtube channel. Cool music

Chrispy is amazing. Predator is great, and his remixes are also amazing.
He needs to be higher he is a lot better than this
He should be at least in the top 15
His songs are pure dubstep
Predator, inspecter gadget, Halloween
Are just awesome

Just pure awesomeness in his music
The piano is so melodic you will melt right into it
Deserves to be on top

Reso is absolute quality. All of his tracks are phenomenal and have amazing production. Seriously give this guy a listen!
