Best Dubstep Artists
The Top TenXW
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.!
Skrillex will always make amazing bass drops that's all I have to say to convince youV143 Comments
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...
Skrillex was... Alright I guess. Knife Party got me into dubstep for real though. Until I heard Centipede dubstep was just something I would hear at parties but really gave no cares about.V43 Comments
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.
Not always dubstep, but Nero has consistently made quality tracks that have such a dark vibe to them. If I want to go to a club, Nero is what I want to hear on the loudspeakers.
Nero I think has their own type of music. Revolutionized dubstep!
Hands down Nero be the hero..V6 Comments
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.
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.
He is a good singer. The first song I've heard from him was bass cannon then I can't stopV18 Comments
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.
He may make a point by saying that the culture of dubstep is deformed from its meaningful and mellifluous history, but that doesn't stop him from trying to improve this, along with his specialisation in progressive house and electrohouse. It's one of may things that make him very admirable. - PositronWildhawk
Deadmau5 has long dubstep songs and good ones too if you don't know him get yo ass on YouTube,pandora what ever website and look up deadmau5V20 Comments
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
He is the real hardcore dubstep and some like it loud so he has the true power OF LOUD MUSIC WHICH IS HARDCORE DUBSTEP THAT MAKES THE BASS RIPPED OFF
Excision is god of dubstep.
He is the bestV30 Comments
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!
Bassnectar introduced me to the world of Dubstep and it is amazing what you can do with music. His album Noise vs. Beauty is different from all other albums. Bassnectar is a total different world of music.
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.V10 Comments
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
Love this dude... He is just A damn legendV14 Comments
Possibly the best dubstep producer of our time mainly because of his creativity, finesse and skill which is not found with most other dubstep artists. And unlike Skrillex, who is recently beginning to struggle to produce quality dubstep tracks, Zomboy has consistently produced quality dubstep through all of his tracks even up to his most recent work. He has the amazing ability to combine beauty and heavy drops (City 2 City is a good example) better than anyone I have ever heard. And above all, his music is just so much fun. Unlike other dubstep artists who's music sounds angry or cold a lot of the time, Zomboy is always a pleasure to listen to. He is truly incredible and deserves at least the number 2 spot.
He should be in the top 15 at least
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
Zomboy deserves top 5.V31 Comments
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
Not even a dubstep artist. Why on this list?V6 Comments
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!
This band had me hooked with "Evolution Theory" (debut album) and they went higher with "London Road" (Sophomore Album) Not to be missed! - MrNikoniV8 Comments
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... !
Kill the noise, skrillex, and zomboy all day!V4 Comments
Do you Datsik is more better than Skrillex? It damn sick!
Listen to Datsik - Fully Brown
Then you know it
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.
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!
#1 in the worldV9 Comments
The man's a genius. My favourite electronic artist by far. The emotions his music evokes are just fantastic. The thing that differentiates Virtual Riot in my opinion is that his music has all the elements that good electronic music should have but they are all so masterfully combined that no song becomes monotonous and each has a distinct melody. I find dubstep in general to lack such finesse.
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.

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! - BigNate
Deadmau5 on steroids for the win! - DubstepLover
Death by robot is so goodV6 Comments
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.V6 Comments
And you know whats awesome about these guys is that you will never find another artists of any genre like these guys. They are the most different, unique, but absolutely brutal djs on the planet. They have sick flows and amazing beats. Plus, unlike most of these guys, Daft Punk's music actually works. It isn't just a buch of monster roars put together and called music. It is cohesive. There should be a statue of Daft Punk in every country in the world! BRING ON the FUNK!
What the hell? Daft Punk doesn't make dubstep. - mtndew37
What! Daft Punk should be much much higher than this! How can you not like Daft Punk? They are awesome!
Daft Punk don't do Dubstep.V5 Comments
These guys are awesome, they have their own sound and are constantly evolving. Love every track they produce!
Skrillex may have introduced me to the world of dubstep, but Pegboard Nerds made me stay. - valkyrie24_7
Well the list is obviously a popularity contest. The nerds are amazing, just listen to Bassline Kickin or Fire in the Hole
Created razor sharp, disconnected, and hero.V11 Comments
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...
