Ya'll are Brostep fans. How many people here knew that dubstep came from genres like UK Garage and Reggae... probably not too many. What people call "Dubstep" now is more like a mutated electronic version of hardcore. Don't get me wrong, i like how people like skrillex and knife party rocked up and flipped it all on its head, but its not really dubstep. Brostep is technically what you would call most of todays Dubstep, It was started by people like Skrillex and Rusko who turned "dubstep" into more agressive and energetic party music. Before that it was more chilled music that was way less glitchy and a lot darker and they used proper sub-bass as opposed to the mid-range stuff that artists use today. Artists like Skream and Benga, Kromestar, Artwork, and Horsepower are what you would call proper Dub artists (but even a lot of them have begun to change their style as well) if you're a bit of a purist like me, but i still enjoy producers like Zomboy, Nero, Calvertron, Datsik, Excision and all those guys, its just not quite Dubstep.

Some of my favourite tunes: (What Dub used to sound like)
