Dubstep is absolutely everywhere now and 90% of it just annoying 'wobble wobble' cliched crap that is just about selling records and it's kind of ironic that Dubstep as a genre in underground clubs has been and gone already!
I much prefer the early incarnations of the sound and this is not because it is now popular and therefore I must feel the need to knock it. That is not it at all.
Every other remix of many popular songs now are given the Dubstep treatment but that just means upping the tempo and trying to get as much bass effect out of the track as possible but the original sound is just as described in the OP. DUB (yes DUB!) remixes of the 2 step sound that created this weird hybrid of dark yet hypnotic sounds that relied on texture much more than what has become annoyingly commonplace in Electronic music which is the breakdown/drop or build that admittedly works well in clubs but it's not Dubstep.
Posted before but this is actually Dubstep people!
Burial of course whom a lot of people know and they (he) are much more Dubstep than what you hear these days even if it is very Ambient.
It be my music and film collection.
