Best Dubstep Artists
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.!

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...

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!
Nero is amazing. my favorite. is doomsdayV 6 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.
Cause he fluxV 15 Comments
I like deadmau5 as much as the next guy, but why is he even an entry on this list at all? He has publicly stated that he hates dubstep... I don't believe he's ever made any, or at least not released. - HeyheyIzDaKaykay
Not real dubstep, but just the best of all electro DJ's.
Deadmau5 is just pure gold
He really isn't dubstep. 4x4=12 is however more of a dubstep album, but he hates dubstep. - Slipperyjack40V 32 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
Excision is god of dubstep.
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 MAKE YOU BANG YOUR "i'm A HEADBANGERV 44 Comments
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.
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 the best...give a try...Listen his music...Bassnectar for lifeV 10 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
One of the best dubstep djsV 41 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
Definitely not number 8 should be 5... and why is adventure club not on this list...V 12 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!
Modestep is the best there isV 5 Comments
His remix of Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites is awesome! It's almost as good as the original!
I like skrillex's dubstep better!
Skrillex has good dubstep
Zedd is the bestV 7 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...
At least this guy is somewhere near where he should be...
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 is a beast. His drops, his melodies, his everything is amazing skrillex is the one who introduced me to dubstep, now virtual riot has kept it going. My opinion virtual riot needs to be up higher on the chart. Like #3. That's my opinion. Kick ass virtual 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!
I can't describe how amazing Virtual Riot is. Should be number one. Every song he has made has been masterful for that genre. Really excels in the Melodic Dubstep area, however. :D Best of all time, and I probably listen to him multiple times a day every day. - HeyheyIzDaKaykayV 33 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!
Was really good until the um... incident.
Still, separating the artist from his art... still wasn't exactly my favorite, to be honest. - HeyheyIzDaKaykay
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.
He is one of the EXTREMELY few artists who tries his hands at various electro genres at a single time and does so perfectly. He also roams the world as two electronic artists. Name someone else like this!
Love One CLick Headshot, one of the best! - BigNate
Great sound design and production quality 👌V 5 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
In my opinion, they're even better than Skrillex. They're one of the few artists today still doing real dubstep, electro-house and drum-n-bass.V 17 Comments
The god of 110 BPM right here.
He has very simple, but awesome dubstep
His tracks are awesome!
Stephen introduced me to edm with top of the world and he's been one of my favorite artists of all time since.
I love the Remix that noisia made in the Song "Smack my bitch up "
I don't understand why people haven't realised yet that he is the best dubstep artist of all time, clearly better than skrillex and has the most brutal and harsh dubstep INCLUDING the most emotional dubstep
Dex Arson wasn't on the list, so I voted for another legend. I don't need to say more than one word: corrosive
He needs to be higher! I love this guy more than skrillex! - InfernoTopTenners
OH MY GOD WHY IS HE 29 HE SHOULD BE #1 JUST LISTEN TO SHEOL AND SUPERNOVA THEN YOULL GET IT AV 11 Comments
Worthy of the top 10
Best songs are : Tristam - Friend & Tristam - I Remember, I know real dubstep lovers listen to a another artist instead of skrillex
Why is my favorite dubstep artist not anywhere near the top ten? - valkyrie24_7
Nobody heard flight?V 8 Comments
Eh... ok but.. only have ONE good song. (monster DotEXE remix.)
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
Kill the noise, skrillex, and zomboy all day!
KTN deserves the number 1 spotV 3 Comments
Black mill is an amazing artist for those who love the sound of sick beats and nature combined!
Borgore place 32 look up syrup
Wub Wub Wub. He makes me happy!
4. knife party
8. tut tut child
9. flux pavillion
Only popular for bullseye
I don't know, Last train to paradise and signals are pretty good. - Nick-brick8
Personally, I love Circles.
My favorite artist by far as of right now.
Eh.. best song is bullseye but... pretty dubstep.V 2 Comments
I don't need to say anything but just download shaolin style (nero rmx)'
Piano tune (VIP) & Bloodbath (original).
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!
There are so many diverse emotions that erupt in Adventure Club's music; they use unique vocals, accompanied by hard style dramatic sounds, over subtle classical melodies to create a powerful, beautiful noise.
Such an incredible sound and feel for every song
Ac is awesome! Love their songs RISE AND FALL!
The man who INVENTS dubstep gets a #32 spot? Shame, shame.
The Godfather of dub step, genius
Skream is great, should be on the top ten, just listen to Midnight Line Request
The king of DubstepV 5 Comments
Traxione's music is so brilliantly complex. He is a musical genius.

I really don't know who this is
So SICK and he Praises JESUS! LOVE HIM!V 1 Comment

Excellent mix to keep focused.

The coolest dubstep artist ever..
This guy is cool.-TheCoolGuy1
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?
Zeds Dead creates great songs with great rhythm, I especially like their two songs Eyes on Fire and Out for Blood
Demon gave me love for dubstep
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.
More creative person. Heshould be ont top 10!V 2 Comments
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.
He's one of the creators of dubstepV 3 Comments
He's supposed to be at least 20 places up
Super original. The E.N. D Pt. 2
I don't know why no one has posted him yet his music is awesome
All his songs have such amazing bass line, they just make you feel so happy inside! WHATS HE DOING IN THE NUMBER 36 SPOT?
Skrillex can suck his nuts. He is very similar, yet more lovable than skrillex. Nobody can see: skrillex only has good intros!
HE SHOULD BE NUMBER ONEV 13 Comments
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
Savant is love. Savant is life.
A real stand-out in the whole dance/electronica genre, a true musical prodigy
Probably only a original dubstep artist
This guy is really amazing. he put all of his efort in to every single and he makes new music all the time and he his very original. my favorite artist of all timeV 5 Comments
